Travellers' Choice
In December 2015, one of Sydney's finest examples of art deco glamour opened its doors as the 5 Star Primus Hotel Sydney. The hotel is in the heart of the city near Town Hall and some of the city's most iconic attractions and several public transport options. This heritage sensitive refit of the former Sydney Water Board headquarters has breathed new life into an iconic 1930's building. With an exacting approach to retaining and reinstating the internal detailing, the refurbishment by leading global design studio Woods Bagot has brought a sense of modern timelessness and convenience to space. The generously sized 172 rooms and suites feature lavish interiors, free WiFi and contemporary bathrooms creating an authentic and engaging experience for guests. Our suites are ideal for guests who seek large spaces during their stay in Sydney; each suite comes with a living and dining area and bedroom. The Grand Lobby Bar is a haven for people wanting to relax with a touch of old-world charm while the ad-joining all-day dining restaurant, The Wilmot, brings high-end dining back to the city with a modern, comfortable twist. The New York-style rooftop heated pool with sundeck is the perfect respite from the bustle of the streets below. From beautiful meeting rooms to three dedicated boardrooms, the hotel provides unique events and conference spaces. Hospitality is at the heart of Primus Hotel Sydney.

Arrival = Smooth and easy just a small wait Room = Very nice, large had a superior room with seperate bedroom which was great. View was obstructed with large buildings around, but could see the Town Hall and Catheral. Bed was comfortable and large. Bathroom huge, doulbe vanity, good water pressure in the shower. Two TV's one in the bedroom other in the lounge. Didn't hear any noise from unit above or below. Overall excellent Clean = Yes very clean, cleaned daily. Only down side was found pillow case with old used sheet behind the curtains. Atmosphere = Lovely old buiding and has been re-used well, large open lobby which looks grand, rest of the floors like it use to be in its hey day. They have a roof top pool, (Lap type) looked fine for a cool down didnt use. Gym on

The Primus is an amazing hotel and has become our favourite choice for a city break. The on site bar already attracts walk-ins and work drinks groups because of the excellent range of cocktails and the skills of the bartenders. It’s a perfect fit for the period of the hotel slipping you back into the 1930’s Art Deco world of glitz and glamour. You can check-in and enjoy the retro style of your own room with full size bath to soak in and jazz on the Home Screen of your TV then pop downstairs for cocktails (or head up to the roof bar) and then dine-in at The Wilmont restaurant. It’s a perfect evening without ever having to brave the weather or Sydney footpaths. We really love this hotel but we have to stop telling people about it because we don’t want to miss out on a room or

A very enjoyable stay. We received an excellent rate which included parking and breakfast. Had two rooms, we did book the same rooms but one was larger than the other and had a sofa, not just a chair, making it more comfortable. The beds are comfortable, the rooms clean. The room was not as well maintained as our last visit, may be getting close to a repaint or refit. The staff are always fabulous., nothing a problem. The breakfast choices were good and the serving sizes enormous.
