In King's Cross a two minute walk to the inner city train station. Small rooms, but clean. Cole's Supermarket a few minutes away. You can walk through the Public/Botanic Gardens to the Opera House & Circular Quay in a half hour fairly easily. Internet was good and staff helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would do it again. Our room... More

The hotel is fine. A bit worn and small rooms, but I found it clean. There are some very nice cafes just outside the hotel I highly recommend for your breakfast, and you can easy reach downtown with public transportation. You can even walk through the botanical gardens to the opera house if you don't bother 20-30 minutes of walking.

Stayed in the Executive King Suite for two nights. The location is awesome close to everything and good places to eat,the rooms are spacious and clean. However my room was facing candy night club on bayswater road which meant that on a Friday or Saturday night you won't be able to sleep until 3pm. Even with all the windows closed,... More

Its our second time to stay at Bayswater. We love this hotel the first time, but when we stayed here a year after, it looks a bit tired and needs renovation. Great beds for sleeping comfortably. But the floors on our room was very squeaky! Even if we walk very lightly it squeaks and squeaks and squeaks! This badly needs... More

Fantastic location for bars and restaurants. Also down the road from a tube stop which can get you to Sydney opera house within minutes. Great sized room. Wifi throughout hotel. No complaints at all other than on the last day I found a cockroach in my room!

Nice hotel with nice staff. A lot of bar around it and many restaurants as well. Very close to kings cross station which is comes very handy when you wanna go around the city. Supermarket is right around the corner. In the weekend the street is packed with people ready to party at the bar around, so be careful when... More

This hotel is in an absolutely fantastic location. The staff is courteous and tries to be helpful. Unfortunately, during my stay here, we found a huge cockroach in the bathroom and there were no other rooms to move to. This probably colored my experience more negatively than is fair, but still. Additionally, the rooms are TINY, and the TV placement... More

Only stayed overnight. Great location easy to get around sydney with the station & buses close by. Stayed in a executive stranded room. It was a little small however it was clean & bed was comfortable. Staff friendly. No parking at hotel however you get a discount at the parking station down the road. Great cafes close by.

I stayed at this hotel for 9 days in May. The hotel is very near Kings Cross station (literally across the road and a short walk down the street) and therefore a great choice for getting around if you are using public transport. The staff at the hotel were great - the person on reception was extremely helpful when checking... More
