Rating by category:
Comfortable enough and affordable. Great location for sites we wanted to visit. Good connections with neighborhood resources. Safe and secure. Accommodating with storing our luggage for the day. We would visit again.
The location is excellent, the discount offered at the great pub next door is good and the glimpse of the harbour from some rooms is nice.
For some reason the staff didn't seem as welcoming as in the past. The room had been painted and a picture on the wall had not been replaced.
The best thing about staying at the Arts Hotel was the location of been close to the city without paying city prices. Also good shopping and great food places especially in the back streets of Paddington.
The bed was very clean and comfortable & downlights above bed made reading in bed very easy.
Check-in staff not particularly helpful, however the night reception staff was very pleasant and helpful, including arranging late check-out. Very limited secure parking & very limited off-street parking available close to hotel. Only toiletry supplied was soap in a dispenser (which nearly ran out with only two people in triple room)
I was please that the room had a safe. The receptionist on the evening of the 29 April provided me with an umbrella. The bed was comfortable.
On Saturday 30 May my room (113) was not serviced until after 4pm. The bathroom seemed not to have any courtesy shampoo etc. I was handed the wrong key one afternoon which meant I could easily have entered another room - I prefer card-entry for security.
location, as we went to the Scg it was a short walk.
just the fan noise in the bathroom
Convenient location and friendly staff
The size of the giant cockroach in the bathroom. Condition of the interior of the room dated and could be a bit cleaner.
The staff were great and the breakfast was value for the money.
There was not alot of parking at the hotel.
Have stayed with you many times over the last few years - brilliant location, simple but comfortable facilities & the staff are very welcoming.
Location is outstanding: I walked to the city and walked to Bondi, Kings Cross, the Botanic Gardens and so on. I like the street life in the surrounding areas where there are lots of good value, interesting bars and cafes.
Top staff who can deal with a wide variety of local and international clients
Staying in a room at the front of the hotel. Going to breakfast in the room overlooking the street. The location was excellent for trying out restaurants not in the centre of Sydney.
helpful staff, quiet, air-conditioning was good, bed was comfortable
I found it annoying that the wireless was not available in the rooms.
The location is great - close to great shopping, restaurants, Sydney football stadium, and a good cinema next door. The room was clean and comfortable, the pool was lovely and the staff were friendly. Very good value.
