The biggest problem we had was getting to the hotel ! The taxi driver had no idea where it was, and it's a little hard to find with the doorway tucked down an alley. But perfect location: walking distance to great shopping, the Rocks, the Quay Harbour, close to the train station and to opera Minutes from Circular Quai with... More

Our 1 night stay at this glorious boutique hotel, was his present for my partners 50th birthday. We were given tickets to watch a show at the Opera House and I decided that although we live on the northern beaches in Sydney, staying in the city for the night would be a decadent treat. And oh boy it was!!! The... More

Great hotel and great location. Yes it's a little noisey at times, but it is part of one of the most popular downtown restaurant and bar spots. Great staff. Great food and drink choices. If you want a wild night out just pop downstairs to the establishment restaurant or if you fancy great Cantonese food head to Mr Wongs, one... More

I was surprised when I entered into the lobby. The hotel is quite hidden in a small road but once you pass the doors you enter in another world. Very exclusive and "raffiné". The rooms are soooooooo cozy. The bathroom is sooooo "oh my god" with Bulgary beauty products. I loved it. In the evening you find cookies on your... More

Great hotel, reasonably priced, just don't drink at the bar on a Friday or Sat night, it is packed with kids drunk and rude...otherwise rooms are good, good in room derive are excellent! Word of advice only stay with someone you know well, baths are in middle between room and bathrooms! They use Bulgari

Spent one Saturday night there for our wedding anniversary and it would have to be the best all round service we've ever received. The room was great but it was the exceptional staff the made the stay so wonderful. The front desk couldn't be more informative and helpful, even getting us on the door for Pasha at the Ivy. We...

The Bulgavi spa products, spacious rooms with designer furnishings and pride of place bed make this the perfect hotel for an affair. High ceilings, sound proofing, you quickly forget you are in the downtown centre of Sydney. What extra I spend on the room I more than save on taxis and by completely avoiding the Sydney traffic debacle - skipping... More
