In August 2012, we were staying at this hotel. The hotel is well located in this wonderfull city. The room is well equipped and not that expensive. The only minor of our room was the high temperature.

Really old hotel, hotel reception not really interested in hearing complaints. I booked a double room and got a twin, and they didn't care. Lady in Reception said her power plug was live and she wanted it fixed. They said don't use it then! She said it was dangerous, and she was in the electrical industry, but they didn't care.... More

By the last leg of long holiday, budget constraints combined with it being a busy weekend in Sydney for hotels etc meant we stayed in The DeVere for the last 4 days for our Australian holiday. We booked through booking.com and got a deal that equated to around £50 a night. We had researched Sydney a bit before arriving and... More

Having said it's a BOUTIQUE hotel, the really seems old and stuffy. Please do not let the first impression let you down. The rooms are pretty clean, beds and pillows comfortable and the location is better than lots others for the same price. If what you're looking for is a place to sleep with a convenient location, this is it!

We stayed 5 nights in Devere Hotel last month and just because Sydney is a expensive city we chose this hotel. The hotel is located in a good distance from Kings Cross station (not far, but in a secure distance), the Woolsworth supermarket across the street can provide anything you want. There's a lot of options of restaurants nearby. So,... More

The picture of De Vere New Hotel gives you the impression you are staying somewhere very grand but the accommodation is not in the house but in motel like buildings outside. The swimming pool / spa was lovely but you had to enter a code daily which you had to go to reception to collect which was most inconvenient. When... More

Hotel is what you would expect for room rates. However beware of a scam at check-in. They ask for a $20 "bond" for incidentals and will not accept cash. Promise to refund to your credit card. We are still waiting weeks later for refund, despite a reminder. Maybe they think that no-one will chase $20.

Rooms are small and dated. Walls and ceilings could do with a good scrub. Bed is very average too. If you do stay then request a room on the upper floors. There's a lot of noise that comes from above.

I quantify 'budget' in terms of Sydney, because few places would see $100+ as fitting into a budget category. However, the Devere is probably the cheapest hotel in Sydney that is reliable and decent. Although it won't win any awards for service and what it delivers, the Devere is always clean and quiet for $100 which is rare in Sydney.... More

Location. Affordable. Helpful staff................................ what more do you want? De Vere is my first choice when visiting Sydney, which I do often. Sure it's not 5 star but nor is the price and it doesn't pretend to be anything other than comfortable, clean, capable. Continually return there. Say no more!!!!
