Springfield Lodge is like a diamond in the rough. Walking down the street you will notice far too many hostel accommodations within the area. Springfield lodge looks more like a boutique hotel. It has a highly rated restaurant on the main floor, very chic restaurants and pubs within the block and a high end grocery store directly across the street. The staff are super friendly and accommodating. I arrived before 7am, and they were happy to store my bag and allow me to check in by noon if I needed.
When I checked in the room they gave me the top floor. This is only accessed either via the stairs or taking the elevator to the 3rd and walking an additional flight. My room does not have a view, but they make up for this by providing me with a queen size bed.
Although the bathroom is tiny (super tiny, my knees could hit the wall when I am using the toilet), they provide a lot of hotel amenities, including plenty of towels, room fridge, coffee, kettle, shampoo and conditioner.
They do have laundry and kitchen facilities in the basement which are available during extended office hours.
I would consider this room on par with the size you would find in many European cities with the facilities and amenities of a North American motel for a far reduced price of a Sydney accommodation

So we arrived in Sydney yesterday, it was warm, I had my flip flops on on the flight (though people were looking at me quite oddly in china when it was around -2!!) My brain hasn't quite got used to the fact that I don't need to take an outer layer out with me at all during the day or in the evening, but it's good!!

Hello friends and family,

Today bid adieu to all of my tour buddies as they headed back to their homes in the US (I was the only Canadian left), quickly caught up on laundry ($17.00 a load to wash and dry, yikes!) & relaxed in the cafe at the Grace Hotel while I waited for Erin and Steve to meet me. I love touring with locals -- it's always much more interesting than...Sydney, New South Wales, Australia donna_bird
Did you know that Powerade is more popular than Gatorade in Australia? Or that you can't order a simple double-double coffee here, it's a variation of long or short and black and white words and I haven't the slightest clue which I would like? Did you know that their $2 dollar coin is their smallest coin and they don't have 25 cent coins or penn...Sydney, New South Wales, Australia shab3780
