Great location. Old building which could use some upkeep
Overall a good stay. I stayed here for one week during Mardi Gras.
Pros: excellent location. Close to many restaurants and a great ice cream place. Walking distance to Oxford street which is great for Mardi Gras. Short walk to King’s Cross station, which gets you pretty much anywhere in town. The building is an old, refurbished hotel. At the top used to be a restaurant/bar called Top of the Town. Hence the name. Most of the older folk I met recognized the name immediately and had fond memories. Pretty much a landmark for the older generation. The Tropicana below has the same history. It’s a cafe which apparently started the coffee craze in Sydney and was the hub for the fashion industry for many years. It still has good coffee. The apartment itself is large. The kitchen has everything you could need for your stay. Washer, dryer and dishwasher were handy.
Cons: old building with old building problems. My air conditioning unit broke down for two of the hottest days of my stay. The second night, I barely got any sleep. Unfortunately, traffic noise outside is too loud to leave the balcony open. (It is perfectly quiet with the door closed). It seemed to be an issue in several units in the building. Interestingly, the property manager did not seem to be aware of the issue until I messaged them. I dealt mainly with the concierge. The bathroom pipes seem to be continuously gurgling, but I actually found it to be a pleasant background noise. The furniture is old (couch and rug in particular ) and could use an upgrade. Tiles in the shower floor are broken. You get the idea.
Oh. And forget about doing laps in the pool. It is tiny. The gym is well equipped, though.
I had an excellent stay. The apartment is as seen in the images. Comfortable, quiet, safe, well located, with concierges 24 hours. I recommend it 100%
We enjoyed our stay, but bed linens didn't smell fresh and bathroom could be cleaner.
