Great location close to Kings Cross train station. Walking distance to Botanic Garden and Circular

4 of 5
Great location close to Kings Cross train station. Walking distance to Botanic Garden and Circular Quay. Quiet. no napkins or paper towels or basic condiments, like salt & pepper, are provided, so make arrangements if you will be cooking and eating there. Also wasn't clear where guests were supposed to take their trash; we used small can in the luggage storage area in the lobby.
