Noise from the pub across the road was incredibly loud and continued throughout the night, finally ceasing at 5.45am. It resulted in a very poor night's sleep despite all windows being closed. A conversation with reception in relation to this was quickly shut down.

This hotel was in a convenient location which made sightseeing in Sydney nice and easy. However we did face a lot of noise issues that dampened our overall experience. We were unfortunately situated right on top of a karaoke bar, but also had loud sudden thuds and noises that went on for more than half an hour from the room above us in the middle of the night and early hours of the morning which woke us up numerous times. This was brought to the staff's attention and we were informed there could have been kids jumping on bunk beds above us. The rooms are definitely not soundproofed well at all! Overall the price of the hotel reflects all this which is quite budget friendly but we won't be recommending or coming back.
