Stayed at Sinclair's for 3 weeks while visiting our daughter in Sydney. Stayed in room 8 which had a good comfy double bed, as well as a very good shower on the first floor. Very clean and linen and towels were changed once a week. We also had a flat screen TV. Room was at front of building and the... More

Using the words to describe "The Famous Otto". He truly is the host extraordinaire who will check you in, give you a ton of great recommendations, and great directions around town. My room had huge windows with white wood slats and a ceiling fan; it had a very island feeling. The bed was very comfortable and I was provided 2... More

First of all, when I arrived there was no body who would open the door, I was waiting in the Porsche for an hour until someone finally opened. I booked for a private room with private bathroom, and they told me that it was all booked so the only option was to share bathroom, and I had to pay extra... More

I am sorry that you felt that way, you checked in 2 hours earlier that what you told us originally, and when the manager spoke to you he told you that the room that we booked for you had a problem with the Plumbing and we could not get it fix quick enough, and you happy to take another room. More

This place gets one dot rating as it was purely a place to "sleep". I was surprised that "staff" consisted of one old guy - whom looks like living there and managing the place. No reception area - I was notified to come before 11pm as staff would not be working past that time but was surprised to see no... More

I was in Sydney for five days and wanted something other than an impersonal chain hotel, so after careful consideration I chose to stay at Sinclairs, 27 Paul street, near Bondi junction. I was skeptical at first because of some negative comments on trip adviser but found them not to be true. The reason for staying at this hotel was... More

“The queen sized room at the front was spacious, but had night traffic. The double room at the back was quieter in terms of traffic noise, but the walls were a bit thin, so you could hear your neighbours.”
