Clean room with a well-stocked kitchen. Very helpful reception and tour staff who were very knowledgeable and made excellent suggestions. All the staff were very welcoming. I would stay here again. Location is good 5 minute walk to Kings Cross station.

The reception staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the kitchenette area was well equipped. The swimming pool was disappointingly small. The hotel is close to the Explorer bus stop for the city and Bondi beach circuits. It is possible to walk from the hotel to the Opera House and Circular Quay through...

Stayed for just one night, but enjoyed the stay. Room is clean and comfortable with amazing view on the Opera House and the Harbor Bridge. Staff is helpful and friendly. Woolworth is just across the road, Kings Cross station within walking distance. Lots of coffee shops and restaurants/cafes around.

The hotel looks good on the outside/reception area but the room look a bit tired. But it was clean and comfortable. We had the harbour view and it was beautiful. The hotel is located near Kings Cross station, therefore it was easy for us to get around Sydney.

We're very satisfied with quality and cleanliness of the room. With harbor view, it was superb as we could dine in the room while watching Sydney Opera House and the sea. But be sure that you get something like Level 7 or higher. The hotel is located about 0.5 km from King's Cross station. Woolworth supermarket is just across the...

I'd stayed earlier in the year while on business in Sydney. While I considered a couple of others (it was an 8 day stretch), I'd liked Potts Point and the staff at the Macleay had been superb so I booked in again I was warmly welcomed back by Paolo who ensured, as it was a longer stay, they'd try to...
