Got a great deal on this hotel on the Travelpony website - with a great harbourview room. The Potts Point neighbourhood is rather charming and quieter than the CBD. Convenient location- 5 minutes to Kings Cross Station, buses running to Circular quay / Hyde park from right across the road from hotel. 2 stops by train to Bondi Junction where... More

On a solo trip, I didn't mind walking a bit to the touristy sites and I didn't want to pay downtown prices. I also wanted a comfortable but not luxurious hotel. So the reviews led me to Potts Point and the Macleay. It turned out to be one of those finds where you smile to yourself in satisfaction. The staff... More

We spent six nights at the Macleay and found it very good value. The staff (and particularly Kate from Leeds) were really helpful. The rooms are not high-end but perfectly comfortable with some limited facilities for cooking if necessary. The hotel is in Potts Point - a genteel but lively neighbourhood - plenty of shops and places to eat and... More

Stayed on the 3rd floor but do have pocket view of the sea which was a bonus. Opposite of the hotel will be a cafe and further up is a supermarket, pretty much could get anything... More

We were glad to get a booking at the Macleay since it was a very busy weekend in Sydney and there wasn't much left available. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable and came with a small kitchenette. It was in a nice neighborhood too, but not the most convenient area for getting to Bondi or Coogee and a decent...

located close to everything, walking distance to the Oprah house and cbd along with Woolamaloo and then on the other side Kings Cross and Rushcutters park. The rooms are small and basic but great for the price. The service and staff are fantastic I was with a group and they could not have helped us more. I will certainly be... More
