From the front, the hotel doesn't have much aesthetic appeal. The check in process was relatively painless and the staff member humble and polite. My room was wonderful! I booked a King Size Executive Suite and there was plenty of room and contemporary decor - couch, coffee table with chairs, desk. Usual facilities you would expect from a hotel of... More

We popped into the Bayswater for a one night stopover on the way back to the GC. For the price this is a great lil place and we would happily return. Staff were super friendly. We did have a suite and thought it was well worth the upgrade for the space. Thanks for a great stay guys.

I stayed here for two days not knowing anything about Sydney or the Bayswater, other than what I read on tripadvisor. My stay here was great, and Freddie, the front desk attendant I had the most contact with, was extremely helpful and accommodating. I didn't have an adaptor to charge my various gadgets (cell, camera, Kindle) and he got me... More

I stayed here last month in a deluxe king room which was perfect for two people! It's big enough to have 3 people as well. Quite spacious and very clean. Would recommend for anyone looking for a cheap hotel in the heart of the city. Close by to the station, clubs, restaurants, nightlife. Also the hotel offers $20 overnight parking!

The Bayswater is a simple hotel in an ideal location. Can walk into the city, down to the harbour. Close to the city hop bus tours. Easy to get to Bondi. Very noisy in the evening. Staff friendly. Room was cleaned every day.

Perfect budget hotel. Close to a lot of good restaurants and good location. We booked it for the queen size bedroom but we were upgraded. Also early checkin was made available to us. Overall a very great good experience. We would stay here again if we visit Sydney again.

For the price, this room is great. Its very small, but clean and comfortable. Its in a great location. Its close to the nightlife of Kings Cross and lots of great restaurants in Potts Point and Darlinghurst. Its also close to the train station and it is very easy to get to the city, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour.

Absolutely amazing hotel, guy at the desk was excellent and helped out a lot. Booked the room on bookings.com at a rate we couldn't believe (cheaper than the hostels) and was fantastic. In a great location about 20 second walk across from train station and with hundreds of great coffee/sandwich shops nearby. Cleanliness was incredible, and bathroom was amazing with... More

Being located close to many different restaurants was great. Access to the internet was a big plus. The personal attention of the front desk was very impressive and appreciated. Door to door airport shuttle. Close to the wharf and the opera although not walking distance. Great night sleep and a comfortable bed. The only downside was that you had to... More
