I stayed here and was initially worried about the location as I was a single traveller but it was excellent. Close enough to be able to walk to and from Circular Quay and Darling Harbour or catch a train from the station opposite. Staff were super friendly and I was lucky enough to have my room upgraded to a very... More

if you are visiting the Kings Cross Night clubs - then this is ideal. I'm glad I had ear plugs else there would have been problems. The staff were very friendly. All of them. Infact couldn't be more so. The $12 shuttle was great too. Made life much easier to get to airport. Close to Kings Cross station too. They... More

I stayed at Bayswater for just 1 night on the weekend, my friend and I shared the King room and it was great. Perfect for an overnight stay! It is so close to all the night clubs, which made it even more perfect for us as we were coming back and forth between the clubs and hotel all night. It... More

We booked this hotel, initially for the price. This was our first visit to Australia, and my Hubby and I wanted to visit Sydney for a couple of nights. The room was clean and of plentiful size; the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom more than adequate! Staff were very helpful from the off; if you do book to... More

I have stayed at the Bayswater previously and had a fantastic time. This time I had just the double room as I was the only one staying there. It was more than enough space! The rooms are clean and gorgeous as well as comfortable. I had a back room this time so I got no noise at all from the... More

Had a King room which had a comfy bed and good shower - surely the biggest priorities you want if on a short sight seeing trip to Sydney like we were. Small gripes would be no free wifi and rooms are immediately on the corridor so can have some noise as people go in and out of rooms. Location very... More

We stayed during Easter and was upgraded to executive suite with view and bigger bedroom. The room is small and cosy but minimal space between the king bed and door to the bathroom (need to be careful not to knock over the table lamp!) As the place is located near Kings Cross station, it was rowdy and noisy on Saturday... More

Handsome hotel with polite staff. My room was tiny but very clean and stylish. The room was at the back of the hotel on the 4th floor and although there wasn't much of a view it was quiet. I would stay again.
