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

Great location. It's close to shops, restaurants and cafes, bus stops and the King's Cross Station is a 5 minute walk away. The staff are friendly, helpful and accommodating. The room is a bit small but for the price it's alright. You can do your own laundry (coin drop) at the hotel which was really convenient. Stayed for 5 nights... More

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.
