Good location and great breakfast

by Tararabo on 27 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

This is an older hotel - 1930s style. Our room (505) had everything we needed: comfortable bed, bar fridge, good sized bathroom, safe, hair dryer, ironing board and iron, air conditioner that worked well plus ceiling fan. Our view was just rooftops etc but plenty of natural light and heavy curtains to block out light if needed. It is close to Darling Harbour and Central Station. It's very close to Chinatown and Paddy's Market. We walked down to Circular Quay and stopped off at Queen Victo...

Convenient and quiet in the heart of the city

by lorryh on 24 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

The Great Southern is situated close to Sydney's Central Station. It is an older hotel although has all necessities. We booked a standard queen room which was small but quiet.The bathroom was small but adequate. On checking in we asked for late check out which they agreed to. Usually a charge of $10 an hour is added but they did not charge us. Our friends were up graded to a larger room with a strange balcony - closed in with no view. However it would have been good to have the extra room. This ...

If a great location is what you are looking for this is it

by robma47 on 24 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

If you are looking for a great location but are willing to go without the luxuries then this hotel will suit.We were given an extra large room which was a bonus as most rooms are very small.The room was clean & the aircon in good working order which we needed as temperatures were high.We were allowed an early check in which was appreciated as we had come off long distance flights.The bar & cafe down stairs was a bonus although found the music in the bar very loud so much so we couldn`t converse ...

Cozy, Close to a lot of areas in Sydney

by Taylor S on 19 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

It was a small queen size bedroom, but perfect for couples with no children to travel with. Shower was small as well as the bathroom. TV is on a wall, shows some foxtel channels as well, mostly has captions, but if you can ignore captions then TV viewing is good, There is no way that I found to get rid of the captions. The window viewing isn't much for what I got. There is also a small desk and chair, which is quite squished between the bed and not much walking space around the bed area. Also 2...
