This was my second stay at The Cambridge Hotel and it was just as good as the first. The staff were incredibly helpful upon checking in, making sure that I had everything I needed and even recommending to me the best cafes with the best coffee in the area - very helpful when you arrive at 9am! Even though I... More

Stayed here based on the location as it was convenient for places we needed to attend for the weekend. Staff weren't very friendly and the room was tiny. There was no parking available either so had to drive around for half an hour and then walk in the rain to check in. There was only one mirror in the bathroom... More

We were going to the Lion King so this hotel was part of the package- the reviews weren't all that good so were expecting the worse. But pleasantly surprised. We booked 2 rooms - one on the 12th and one on the 5th floor- definitely go high if you can - great views. Room was big, plenty of room -... More

I booked into this hotel for a quick one night in Sydney (Friday night for Saturday morning convention elsewhere in Sydney). Staff were friendly enough, room clean and tidy. View towards city okay once you lift your eyes over the cement bunker of Surry Hills Police Centre below. We had full buffet breakfast included in our price which sounded lovely,... More

Great proximity to Surry Hills shops and easy to talk down the main hub of CBD. Clean orderly decoration. Efficient layout and though not massive space but very well for family. The mattress and blankets could be better but that only leaves room for getting even better.

Got a budget room which was quite acceptable. It said "room with pool view" but the only window in the room was tainted and the pool small and interior. Nice looking hotel, functional and great staff. Location is not great but if you don't mind walking up the hill it's ok. A very good option for Sydney CBD area.

Like some other reviewers, I don't think that this hotel currently lives up to its 4 star rating. The rooms are clean but very small, particularly the bathrooms. The first room we were shown had a problem with the toilet. We were quickly allocated another, where there was no problem. Funny design problems such as tap fittings which don't work... More
