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

Good location for travelers. Close to the Railway station, and Sydney light rail. Great place to walk and see things. Rooms small and clean. Needs some work done. Good breakfast. Has parking if you drive.

If you're looking for accommodation on a budget, close to everything and you're only there to sleep, this is the place. We were certainly within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go for the 2 nights we were there. But don't expect grand spacious rooms.

Have stayed at this hotel many times. Most recently we stayed 2 nights as the price was very good. The first night was fine.The room was not big, but after spending overnight on the Indian Pacific, size did not matter. The second night, Thursday, was a nightmare. Being on the second floor, the same level as the open air dining... More

Decided to stay at the Capitol Square Hotel purely because of the price, paid $149.00 for my wife and I including breakfast. We were checking in late afternoon, then going out to dinner and a show so wanted a room just to sleep in. The room was clean, the pillows hard, the bathroom small and in need of small repairs....
