Great location as it is near the tram/train station so easy to go around the city. I think the price is very reasonable, it is not a five star luxury hotel so be realistic with your expectation. Stayed in this hotel for 4 days and it provided all we need, though it would be better if they can offer free... More

Only stayed one night on a quick stopover in Sydney. Read all the reviews and agree that you get what you pay for, suited us fine. Cheapest I could find for three adults near Chinatown and was OK. Room was a little musty smelling and aircon was not the best, but the location was great to go out and grab... More

Another (female... More

Good location - railway station behind, free shuttle 555, near China Town. And 7 mins walk to Central Station etc However, I really don't want to listen what the others saying or doing in the next room....

I have stayed at Capitol Square three times now while in Sydney on business and keep returning. It contains everything I need - a clean, quiet room, an en suite bathroom and a TV that works! It is not flash but nor would I expect flash for 3.5 stars. I keep coming back because it is comfortable, clean, safe and... More

Way cheaper than other Sydney hotels. Centrally located just beside Capitol Theatre. Near tram stops, restaurants, shops and some tourist attractions. It is an hostel substitute if you want privacy with your own bed and bath. Room size is just enough for us since we are Asians. Furnishings are classic and needs refurbishing & major cleaning. We moved the 2... More

Booked into the Capitol Square Hotel overnight from the Hunter Valley to catch an early morning flight to Tasmania. Thought it would be good since it was a Ridge's Group hotel. Big mistake. Room incredibly drab, dirty and small. Hallway carpets worn and stained. Couldn't get out quick enough next morning. Cancelled our prepaid room for 5 nights later following... More

Capitol Square hotel is situated right in the heart of Sydney's CBD. The room is average- however it was comfortable and clean. The hotel is right next door to Capitol Theatre where "Lion King The Musical" was playing at the time. Everything is within walking distance to Capitol Square Hotel such as cafes, restaurants, shops etc. It is a 5min... More

I stayed in this hotel late July 2014 for one night with friends. Location wise - fantastic for Sydney CBD. RIght next to the Capitol theater (for musical lovers); Walking distance to China Town; the Markets; 10 - 15 minute walk away from Town Hall region. That's where all my positive feedback ends. The service was average. The room was... More
