Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Good sized rooms with all basic amenities. Brilliant location- easy walk to Darling Harbour attractions but great soundproofing so not disturbed by neighbours or from bars and restaurants in close proximity. Aircon and heating worked well. Could do with some redecorating or new carpets. Bathroom have had a recent upgrade but in need of a good scrub esp in and around shower where mould visible
