We had a room with harbour view. It was stunning. Everything about this hotel was great: beautiful historic building, perfect location next to Royal Botanic Garden, great buffet breakfast, comfortable bed, nice bathroom, courteous professional staff.

We stayed at the Intercontinental, Sydney many times we had a very nice room, the beds was very comfortable, the room was a good size. The Club room on level 31 was truly incredible with the view, the food and the service made the Club great!

Juana in Housekeeping took just the right amount of care with our rooms and was always eager to provide anything we needed. Our room had a spectacular view of the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the Sydney Opera House,... More

InterContinental Sydney is ideally located a few minutes walk from Circular Quay and its train station. This makes it convenient to travel around Sydney via ferry or train. Being close to Circular Quay also means the Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and The Rocks are all within walking distance. 5/5 for location! Moving onto the inside, the hotel has a... More

Quiet room although directly at Circular Quay, spectacular view on Opera and Harbour Bridge. One of the few hotels where we had a comfortable bed and could sleep well. The concierge booked a list of requested restaurants, always kept us up-to-date, suggested alternatives, arranged a wonderful small group trip to the Blue Mountains. Long breakfast hours with a large selection... More

I had my heart set on staying at the Four Seasons, but my travel agent found out it was full during my visit to Sydney, so she booked me at the Intercontinental instead. And what a joy it was to stay there. Luke at the reception is a wonderful, funny, cheerful employee. He gave me all the necessary information I... More

My disappointment was mostly with Cafe Opera. Had dinner at the deluxe seafood buffet, there was not anything deluxe about it. I'm not a tough marker. There were prawns, so what. The rooms were a good size and the service was good.

Dear Veronica M, Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback, we are naturally disappointed you were not entirely satisfied with your experience at Cafe Opera. We are sorry if our buffet offerings did not meet your expectations. This is certainly disappointing and not indicative of the service we strive to maintain. Please rest assured your comments have...

Went to Sydney for business, and had to go to the harbour & Sydney Opera House for functions, so Sydney Intercontinental was fairly close ( uphill), but close enough. The rooms are cosy, they have that lux comfy feel, and the bed was really comfy - kinda firm but you could sink in & get comfortable. The staff are excellent... More
