Whilst common areas are fresh welcoming setting, actual room (even hallway leading to rooms) are a sight for saw eyes - out dated room for asking price (comparable to something like a third star motel). The hallways make you wonder what may crawl around at night and they charge extra for parking - an exuberant amount of $55 is unjustifiable... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
