I visited this hotel early July 2015. It was definitely a great place to stay. Staff very accommodating and the room was very big, big enough for my partner and myself. The room was a little bit dated but the view wasn't bad. Great location for kings cross, but I little bit far to travel to train station with all... More

Average sized rooms, but you don't need much space, when the city has so much to offer. The only problem is determining which elevator to use, since there are two for different sections of the hotel (and there is no ramp to reach one of them). There's no free Wi-Fi, but they do offer luggage storage. Decent breakfast selection on... More

Devere Hotel, Potts Point, Sydney We stayed 5 nights and were very happy with our experience. The hotel is an old art deco building and rambles quite a bit, so there were a number of steps up and down, even though there is a lift. We are in our 70’s, so this proved to be a bit of a challenge... More

This hotel is located in Potts Point, close to Kings Cross' nightlife but I did not experience any excessive noise from outside. It is quite easy to reach by taxi, Uber, or public transport. The rooms are very basic, but the beds are comfortable enough for a good night sleep. Breakfast, when purchased at the front desk, was only $13... More

First of all this hotel was amazingly cheap which is why I booked in the first place. The location is great as it is on a long street full of shops, cafés, restaurants, bars and the train station kings cross. I was staying in Sydney alone for 2 nights and this hotel was perfect for what I needed, although the... More

I stayed here a few times between January and April I used to live on Macleay St so can tell you the location is excellent The lobby is nice and fine and has comfy sofas etc The building is quite old and it is fair to describe it as a maze. I believe it is two buildings combined into one... More

Rude and unhelpful staff at the front desk. I witnessed an all out altercation between the manager and a guest who was trying to get some assistance. The manager shouted and was argumentative. I am unsure what it was about, but the manager behind the desk seemed pretty comfortable about making a scene for us paying guests to bear witness... More

I'm not one to normally travel anywhere in Australia as much anymore considering how expensive it is for so far less compared to travelling abroad to south east Asia. I was appalled at how abrupt and rude some of the hotel receptionist were in this place. One day my fianceé and I approached the desk and politely asked if our... More
