          • Excellent value and location, Sydney Central Railway Station. Good clean business hotel and great friendly staff. Our room looking fresh again, nice rooftop pool.

          • The location is excellent, i would definitely stay again and recommend citigate central Sydney to friends, the reception is another good story. Very large bed and a full size desk and sofa.

            Room service and house keeping seemed tired and lazy, the food at the hotel is terrible as well as overpriced.

          • I liked the location and very central to trains & city. Great hotel for the price, near China town and within walking distance of many attractions. Staff were excellent and friendly, the room size was very good.

            Not bad and reasonable value for Sydney, unfriendly reception, too much chlorine in a relatively small pool presented a strong smell on the skin even after bath.

            The hotel itself was quite nice, , the service was not ideal and the tv was poor. Sofa were not too comfortable.

Staff are very attentive to our needs, the rooms are spacious and light and the in room facilities adequate, Sydney has many great food court in Chinatown.

            Awful stay and very poor service. Bathrooms a bit small and a pillow menu would be useful.

            Noisy constuction from site next door, worst hotel ever and poor service. The bathroom was very small and the pillows were not very comfortable. The pool was closed i was there.

            The reception wasnt knowledgeable about the city and less than a minute walk to Chinatown. The hotel itself is dated, the bathroom is not bright enough and facility is a little bit old.
