We firstly booked this hotel based on price. They were offering some of the cheapest rates for the weekend leading into Australia Day. The other drawcard was location. Our son was attending a convention at Redfern and this was an easy location for getting public transport. It was a great location for us (the parents) as we had plenty of... More

We stayed at the Cambridge both a night before and after a cruise. It is an all round decent standard hotel for it's grading. The staff are efficient and friendly. Rooms we stayed in also had a couch which was nice for watching TV (good size) rather than just the option of lying on the bed. Room safe for valuables... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Arrived on a very early flight so got to the hotel at 8am. As we had been awake nearly 2 days we were so tired so asked if we could possibly have the room as soon as possible. They told us all the rooms were taken and check out was at 10.30. Strangely no one... More

Stayed here for six nights including New Years Eve 2015-16. Safe, clean, quiet with a very professional staff. Love the trendy area that is not over run by tourists and yet only a 20 min walk to the Royal Botanical Gardens. Not fancy but perfect for a low key quality visit.

We returned to the Cambridge Hotel just over two years since our first visit in 2013, in the run-up to Christmas. Staff were efficient and attentive at check-in (although there was a minor discrepancy with our bill that was corrected upon departure). Our room had a great balcony view (which had a rather alarming low wall -at least we thought... More

Very reasonable rates for this quality type of room in the heart of the section and close to attractions. Breakfast room service waste sty but not much of a selection. Parking was difficult, car would not fit in the carpark due to height clearance, only allows for smaller cars in carpark and off street parking was very difficult and inconvenient... More

I regularly stay at the Cambridge when in Sydney. Regardless of where in the CBD my meetings or appoints are located, the Cambridge is my preferred base. The location is ideal, the service and room cleanliness are terrific.

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
