We booked directly with the hotel after reading great reviews on tripadvisor and checking out their website. We rented a car and it was a little diffuicult to find the hotel, but that may have been because it was dark, raining and we were driving on the wrong side of the road! :)
The hotel staff was very nice, although one girl gave us the wrong train station exit when we asked for directions. By the way, it's a 2 minute walk from the hotel to the train station. Literally around the corner.
The rooms were lovely, we stayed in the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. The living area was large and had a dining table, the kitchen was well-equipped and the fridge was a good size. The bedrooms were nice, I liked that they were far away from each other. Only one had a TV, but they were both well-sezed with closet space and plenty of room to walk around. We had 5 people, so our 5th person slept on the pull-out bed in the living room, she said it was very comfortable.
Internet access was offered in the room (for a fee) but it was kind of annoying because it was through a cable that plugged in behind the TV. So we had to pull a chair up next to the table the TV was on and sit there. As we were using Skype to talk to friends at home, there was no privacy.
We had a corner room, so we had double windows in our dining area, one of which was a sliding door through which I took the picture I uploaded here.
The hotel provides you with a small amount of laundry soap, dishwashing soap (there's a dishwasher), and plates, bowls, utensils, etc. They also replenish the toiletries everyday and they were nice quality.
The bathrooms were nicely sized. The bedroom with the TV had an attached bathroom and the the other bathroom was in the hall next to the other bedroom.
The hotel has a pool that we uysed each day we were there. It was heated and clean. However, the hot tub was NOT clean.
It's right across the street from a mall, a Target, a theatre, and lots of restaurants. There's actually a little shopping area right outside the door with banks and a promenade area where there was a music festival while we were there. This area seemed to be heavily trafficked by Asian people (not a problem, just an observation), but most of Sydney is like that.
The hotel provides menus for takeout in the room from a variety of restaurants - Indian, Italian, Thai, burgers, etc.

... over 47,000 km in 185 days...
Before we left home, we prepared a detailed plan for the trip. However, over 185 nights, we actually stayed where planned for only 40. Of those 40, some 22 were the first 3 weeks of the trip. Almost all the others were when our stay somewhere overlapped a planned long stop.
So perhaps Guillermo del Toro will forgive us:

Thursday Ranaldinho and I went to the gym while Sophie yet again frequented Woolworths and Alex snoozed. They toddled off to go up the Westfield viewing tower (Sophie was ok with this one as the glass is about a foot thick) to see panoramic views over the city while we finished our work out. After much debate about going to the beach we ended up having a picnic next to the Bridge and spent the rest of the afternoon in Cotton On (or ...
... There was a 36, 38 and 40 degree pools and we went straight into the 40 degrees one. At first, it burnt my feet but then I got used to it and calmed down. We tried the 36 degrees one but it wasn't that good. We wanted it a little hotter so we went to the 38 degrees pool and it was the perfect temperature. After that we went to the caravan park and had a cheese platter and chicken rolls for dinner. We were exhausted after the day of driving, so tumbled up together and fell ...

... quokkas. Most were very cute and it was a fun stop. I probably took too many pictures, so you will have to put up with that today.
From there we drove to Olympic Park to see the sights from the 2000 Olympics and picked up Rowan, our foodie tour guide. He took us to 5 different spots to taste some of the delicious famous food of Sydney. The first stop was the P&R Raineri Deli. We met ...
