      nice and friendly staff,Htl situated at good location at walking distance to all nice places

      we also stayed at this hotel last year, but this time it was louder due to a building place and loud guests having a party in their room at night.

    • Family with children

      Great friendly staff and clean room, great location

      I didn't think that there was enough variety for breakfast

    • Couple
      4.6

      I enjoyed the location as it was close to transport and the city

      Overall appearance of hotel rooms are not of 4 star quality...

    • Single

      Large room. Clean and recently renovated. In room service quick, friendly and well presented food.

      Air conditioning struggled. Room not restocked properly by housekeeping. A pillow menu would be useful. Front desk staff could smile and be friendly to customers.

    • Couple
      9.6

      Parking was a major factor when we chose where to stay. Closeness to Capital Theatre was another reason. Staff were friendly at all times. Service was great. Bed extra comfortable.

      We felt that the bathroom let the room down. Room was immaculate, something out of a magazine, bathroom was tired and run down, water damaged and in need of a facelift. Our only other fault was our cold crossiants we had for breakfast.

      Have more lifts available for check out

    • Family with children
      4.6

      Being close to the city, particularly the momorail, and the markets.

      Checking in and parking the car could have been more organised.Especially with young children (prams). Exiting the street was differcult.Exitting parking Toll was out of order, with no sign saying so.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      We arrived at 6:00, but I checked in at 14:20. It made us feel so tried for the following days. I don't think it deserves the high price.

    • Couple
      5.8

      It is a nice hotel and location is very convenient. Close to Central Station and China Town with lots restaurants around it. We went there for the concert held in Sydney entertainment centre which is very close to this hotel as well. Recommend for city trip. Fair value for the price i paid but it is not a 4 and half stars hotel.

      The bathroom is not bright enough and facility is a little bit old. room interior may need some refurbish.

    • Single
      10.0

      I always chose citigate when I visit Sydney as it is so convenient to all the facilities I need to access during my stay. The secure parking station & the wonderful dining experiences in China Town makes my stay all the more enjoyable !!

    • Group of friends
      7.8

      Awesome reception service

      There were no cable channels such as cnn, bbc etc. (very limited choices), toilets (does not have toothbrushes), rooms (does not have slippers), Internet Connection was very expensive (some hotels provide free internet connection)

    • Group of friends
      5.0

      Location

      Hotel staff - not service oriented and did not listen to feedback

    • Family with children
      7.8

      central to everything, which is good because once you get into the city you can't drive anywhere.

    • Group of friends
      8.8

      Excellent rooms and very central to trains & city

    • Single

      Have stayed in the area before & always feel safe, its so central, trains, buses, monorail ,trams. Close to everything, loved it!!!
