We decided to give the Intercontinental a try for our 1 nite in Sydney between flights based on previous reviews on Trip Advisor. We wanted to 'see' Sydney on our short stopover instead of staying at an airport hotel. The airport shuttle dropped us off at what we thought was the back of the hotel. We were confused over where...

As other Intercontinental hotels in the world, this is located in a nice place, with excellent views and a very high level of cleanliness. But I never found such a great kindness at the checkin. Pedro was extremely kind and available and this was really outstanding

The hotel, room and service was excellent. It needs to keep up with the times regarding technology! 5 star hotels give free wifi with fast speeds on every floor, unfortunately the Intercontinental Sydney does not!

Landed early and the hotel was kind enough to get me a room sooner. It was a comfortable stay and the hotel is very close to the local attractions like Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Sydney port. You can easily walk to all these places, which are less than 10 mins walk. The hotel is near the train station... More

There is no location quite like this and the views from The Club Lounge are a glorious sweep of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Botanical Gardens (Government House included). The food is exceptional and I challenge anyone to find a better breakfast in their travels around the world. The staff are entirely welcoming and really on the ball,... More

We stayed here to be close to events for our daughter's wedding. From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable. We booked two rooms for our group, and the manager was able to have us next door to each other which was a great help sharing the care of a 2yo. The rooms were immaculate, and the view of... More

Excellent hotel with a great location close to Circular Quay for the ferry and the local buses stop pretty much outside the front of the hotel. We stayed in a Opera House View Club Room which gave access to the hotels Intercontinental Club, this was well worth the extra cost. The views from the room were just breathtaking of the... More

This is just a great location for everything. We walked to all the main attractions with ease. The room was well furnished, clean and spacious and we had an east harbour view/Botanic gardens with a peep of the Opera House, wonderful. The staff are polite and helpful and the breakfast is a banquet. The pool has a wonderful view of... More

First time guests at The Intercontinental - Sydney . We walked about 300 mts from the Circular Quay railway station to the Hotel. The hotel has amazing character and history. We had a harbour view room which was magnificent, clean comfortable and all the creature comforts you would expect to find. The staff were extremely professional and helpful not to... More
