Reviewed 29 September 2016

Loved the space in the room and bathroom and the very comfy bed. Staff were all welcoming and easy to arrange a late check out to 12 noon. Location is unbeatable. We were only there for one night but it was so memorable and would love to repeat.

I didn't realize the train station was so close, but I should've known because everything is within walking distance. Access to the Sydney Opera House is awesome, but the shopping and dining is extremely convenient as well.

Lovely old style hotel. Got an upgrade to a lovely room with a great view of the harbour. When i told them we were celebtrating my friends birthday a bottle of bubbles was left in the room for us with a little birthday card. Nice touch. So close to the harbour and the opera house.

Good afternoon Carrie F, First i wish to apologies about the situation regarding the car parking lift which was out of order. This has since been resolved.

Superbe location and very friendly and helpful staff. All comfort one needs. Rooms are pretty dark - even on the high floors - and the overall impression is a bit aged. Breathtaking view on the Botanic Garden and opera side view.

This is a long review, but for any potential travellers please do read carefully as this hotel is not what you would expect for a five-star "luxury" hotel with five-star prices. I intend on sharing these thoughts with management at the hotel as there needs to be a serious examination of the service provided here. I have just returned from...

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.
