The DeVere Hotel is in a good location if you need to be in the Kings Cross/Potts Point area, it is only a few minutes walk up the road from Kings Cross station. The room was surprisingly large, but in desperate need of a birthday. Everything is either very tired, cracked or faded. But for not too much more than... More

I stayed at Devere Hotel in the second week of January 2015. The prices of Sydney hotels and hostels at that point in time was very expensive, given my budget. The reviews of this hotel were not too favourable. However, given my budget, it was worth a shot. The Devere Hotel is in a great location, in the heart of... More

Quite affordable compared to other hotels in Sydney, the location is convenient, near a bus stop, Pott's Point Station, a supermarket and several food choices. The room is very basic, tiny bathroom and facilities were bit worn and torn. We hate the complimentary breakfast, we'd rather walk few blocks for a McDonald's.

When we stayed in early December we paid regular rates which was about $120 a night. It's a budget hotel so don't expect luxury, but for the location, it's good value for money. Our room was quite large - big enough for us to do some yoga with plenty of space. The location is great: there's a hop-on-hop-off bus stop... More

New Year’s Resolution: I’ll never go back to the Devere Hotel in Sydney. Why? Not because they charged/gouged me over $1000 for THREE nights (OK, it was over the New Year period, but still!); not because they laughingly claim it’s a 3.5 star “boutique” hotel; not because the reception staff would be better suited to a correctional facility and the...

We booked the Devere hotel for the NYE weekend. The extreme price of the booking, as high or higher than the very top hotels (Hilton, Sheraton, etc.) we took as a sign that the standard would be in the least comparable to such hotels. The hotel turned out to be one of the worst hotels I have stayed in and... More

A great hotel if travelling on a budget. The hotel is older but is clean, in a good location and provides great service. The family rooms are of a good size and the small kitchenette is very useful when combined with the supermarket straight across the road.

I stayed at the DeVere hotel for seven nights. The check-in process was quick and easy. The room was okay, it was very antiquated. The wifi costs $15 AUD per day! Too much if you ask me and it didn't even work! I went down to reception with my laptop to show the receptionist it wouldn't connect and he refunded... More

Had to stay here for 3 nights as my stay in Sydney was extended at the last moment and did not get any other hotel at a reasonable price. This was not very cheap though (booked through Agoda for about 150 AUD without breakfast). Positives: 1:Clean room and toilets. 2:Lot of food options within walking distance and food quality was...
