Our room at the Macleay was very comfortable, clean and neat. Three persons, great to be able to open windows for fresh air rather than have aircon going all the time. Great location near to main city precinct and SCG. Will definitely return again. Staff great and very helpful.

We did our Internet research and this hotel seemed to have some good reviews. So I convinced my wife that we should stay there during a weekend visit to Sydney. After checking in we went to our room and noticed a strange "breathing tube" on the bed. This was connected to some kind of machine and I assumed the hotel... More

We were greeted by a friendly & helpful receptionist who offered a map and lots of helpful info of the area for first time visitors to Sydney. We were blown away by the views on the top 9th floor in room 913 of the Opera House and bridge and bays and enjoyed our 5 night stay. The room was really... More

Staff really helpful and nice. The room was great with facilities and wifi. Great location to visit Sydney (we walked but you can take the train at Kings Cross station less than 10mn by foot or the bus). You have one woolworth just near the hotel. You have also some restaurants on the Macleay street.

The hotel was comfortable and clean but undergoing renovations which was at no time mentioned . The room had magnificent views of the opera house harbour bridge and city but was small for three of us . The kitchenette was useful as was having a supermarket opposite . The area of kings cross close by was not good at night... More

Brilliant location, friendly, helpful staff always there with a smile. On-site parking and fantastic views from our compact yet well appointed room on the 9th floor. A value for money overnight stay in a capital city.

If you are looking for a great location surrounded by some good restaurants and cafes and great harbour views from the upper floors look no further. Staff were great. I'll never stay in Sydney city again.

Nearest metro station forces you to walk through a sleazy adult entertainment district, which is filled with bars, strip clubs and tattoo parlors and, on Friday nights and weekend night, is crawling with drunken revelers The front of the wall next to my room door was missing, that's right, missing for renovation. My room was next to the elevator shaft,... More

Very beautiful property in a good location. The staff was wonderful and accommodating. The rooms were gorgeous and very clean. Comfortable bed, free Wi-Fi, quiet nights, world class view of the opera house and harbor, the shower was amazingly relaxing and I loved having a little kitchen which definitely saved us time and money by making some of our own...
