We were staying just around the corner from this hotel. We ate here three nights running as it was soooooo good. Sit on the balcony and enjoy the parakeets ....but more importantly enjoy the food. The staff are lovely but the food......great!!

We recently visited Frisco Hotel on two occasions while staying in Woolloomooloo, Sydney. We sat out on the upstairs veranda which had old world charm and a real ambience about it. Lovely old historic hotel built in late 1800's. Staff are welcoming and friendly. Great choice of meals, ample portion sizes and extremely reasonable prices. We tried the seafood linguine... More

a historic hotel and pub dating from the 1890's, the Frisco Hotel should not be missed in any visit to Sydney. Loacated near Wolloomooloo Bay, the pub features a great selection of draft beers and ales- especially Cooper's Ale, my new favorite thing from Australia. Brilliant food in amole portions in the downstairs pub as well as a few gambling... More

Situated right between Kings Cross and the CBD this hotel has also a lot of charm with an old-school pub on the ground floor if you feel like having a beer or a meal. Some of the locals and the bar staff are very friendly.. Rooms are really basic but clean and tidy, would love more amenities though. But the... More

I stayed at the Frisco Hotel two years ago ( April 2010) and I liked it. Ok, this is a bar mostly offering accommodation but they offer decent Sydney prices @ 60 AUD a night, which was cheap two years ago when the euro bought over 1.75 AUD.....The room I had was 1 or 2, I cannot remember, but it...

Have stayed here many times over the last ? years and am almost considered a local. Agree with Edelweiss_9 wholeheartedly, the guys and gals couldn't be more friendly. If you are coming from Central Station, take the 311 bus which will drop you close, look for the petrol station or Harry's Cafe de Wheels and you'll know you're "home"! Going... More

I have known the owners from another venue in the city and they are the best hosts in Sydney!Rob will help you with whatever he can, Jerome behind the bar is a star and so is his team. The rooms come in different sizes, upstairs, bathrooms and showers are common. The bar downstairs is huge and good, the balcony upstairs... More
