We stayed at the Bayswater for three nights. It worked really well for us - it's right near the train station and lots of good cafes, bars etc; staff were great, very friendly and helpful; bed was very comfortable, and it was great to have access to a luggage storage room and departure lounge - which is equipped with a...

Easy access for station, although we walked and it took about 30mins to get to Circular Quay. Coles very close and lots of great value restaurants. New Hampton a couple of doors away served... More

We stayed at the Bayswater for three nights in August. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful and the room was clean and a reasonable size for the price. The bathroom was a little small and the towel rail fell down, but this was repaired. The location is brilliant for getting the train around Sydney to go sightseeing. The... More

Good hotel. Polite staff and nice rooms. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Good location 200m from Kings Cross train station. Wifi never seemed to work but apart from that couldn't fault it for price. Will use again

Conveniently located for my needs. Close to rail, restaurants and other amenities. Room was quiet and the bed was great. Bathroom is modern. Had to giggle - slowest lift ever! Check in was quick and easy as was check out.

My boyfriend and I stayed in The Bayswater for 6 nights in July. Due to a flight cancellation we were a day late in arriving, we phoned ahead to let them know and this wasn't a problem at all. Check in was quick and simple, the room was on the first floor so easy to access with big cases. The... More

Basic hotel with good location. Area was full of bars and partying people. Metro station is couple min walk away from hotel and it is not a big deal to walk central(opera house etc..). Only bad thing was screaming bird which woke us up every morning..

This place is great value, had a second stay and just as good. Staff are so nice. The rooms are clean and bathrooms good. Beds comfortable. The location is good. If I was staying on a weekend I'd ask to be away from the road, but it's ok weeknights. Plenty of great restaurants nearby, I like Panhandlebar and Mad Pizza.... More

We booked for 7 nights in King Deluxe room and i would say its value for money accommodation. Our initial thought when we booked the hotel was if it's safe for ladies, being the location at King Cross area. We felt safe. In my opinion, the hotel located in a less crowded spot and in a good transportation area. The... More
