X-factor: Near inner-city location in a quiet street make this place near-irresistable. Only a very limited wine list gets in the way of making it my favourite inner-city accommodation. This hotel is a stroll to Darling Harbour, the International Convention Centre Sydney and First State Super Theatre. Families will enjoy visiting Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, the Maritime Museum and Chinatown, while Cockle Bay Wharf and King Street Wharf provide exciting eating options, as well as the place from which to explore the harbour by boat. The hotel is also easily accessible to the rest of the city through a myriad of transport options including light rail and city buses. Access to the airport, Blue Mountains and other attractions is from nearby Central Station.
