This hotel is walking distance of trains and ferry stations at Circular Quay. Large, spacious rooms beautifully furnished. Bathroom was all marble, double sinks, large separate shower and tub. It's a smaller hotel so you don't have crowds of people coming and going. The lovely bar adjacent is warm and inviting. It is not modern and trendy, but a change...

We stayed at this hotel due to it's proximity to the Opera House and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the service and general staff friendliness that we encountered. We received a room upgrade to Suite 811 (not sure why but very appreciated, it is enormous) which has previously been occupied by some famous people including Margaret Thatcher, Prince...

I had booked Sir Stamford through trip adviser based on their reviews but was unaware of their wifi policy whereby wifi is charged at $25 a day notwithstanding a basic room only cost of $350 - $400. This is a policy that is clearly discriminatory to foreign visitors and a profit maximising opportunity from a captive audience given most local...

We stayed here last night after watching Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour. We walked to the opera and around circular quay. This hotel has an old fashion charm that gives a really nice and cosy feeling. The room we had was very big and clean. We didn't have much contact with the staff beside checkin and checkout.

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.
