Stayed for last night in oz before returning to UK. Central location close to all attractions but unfortunately noisy as was a Saturday night with a club opposite. Room was clean and maybe would have been quieter if not overlooking the street. Was okay for 1 night only. Also no lift and located up 2 flights of stairs to reception.... More

I booked this hotel as I wanted somewhere central for a few nights. It was perfectly positioned for this and I was easily able to walk to most of the main attractions. It is also only a few minutes walk from a metro station which is two stops from Central Station where you can get a train to almost anywhere.... More

Got to my room. Tv had no channels. Climbed down stairs told to go back and they would come. 10 mins l8r phoned to say not coming. Not good enough. They really need to provide the services they promised or change your rooms. Avoid avoid avoid.

However the other parts concerning the hotel is not that perfect. I´ve stayed here 2 times before and will continue to do so untill cheaper alternatives in the same category will emerge. The first time I stayed we got a quite good room (but noicy due to the nearby stairs), clean, big and nice. The next time it was small,... More

Firstly, the location of this hotel is excellent. You are within a very comfortable walk to buses, trains, the harbour, the Rocks and the Opera House. It is by far the cheapest accommodation you will find in this area ... and for good reason. Our holiday to Sydney was fantastic however where we stayed could certainly have destroyed our positive...

Room was small but as we were out and about most of the time this was ok. Walking distance to everything which was really convenient. We wanted a night in one night but the TV wasn't working so that was a shame. The fire alarms were very sensitive even to the steam from the shower and we had to put... More

Awesome location.. About all it has going for it. Right near train station... However we had to haul our luggage up four flights of stairs as they have no elevators... We were told not to have very hot showers and to make sure bathroom door was closed as the steam from the shower sets the alarm.off... Which will intern cause... More

The City Lodge is by far the cheapest hotel in the Sydney CBD. It is pleasantly clean and the rooms are well organised. We have a King size bed and the en-suite is large and well maintained. They free wifi and there is a kitchen area if you want to make your own meals. They also have a mini bar... More

Pictures are very deceiving. Stayed in a "premium" double. Yuk yuk yuk. Rooms are tiny, bathroom plumbing stunk. Bedspread was old and dingy - not inviting at all. TV reception fuzzy. Definately over priced for what it is. Staff nice enough but barely told us what room we where in let alone any other Info your usually told at other... More
