Myself and my partner stayed here for just over a week and it made for an excellent base for exploring what Sydney has to offer. We paid the extra cost for a room with an Opera house view and it was worth every penny; you really would be hard pushed to find a better view of the Opera House, Harbour... More

This was a great room for a short stay in Sydney. Nicely located to the city in Potts Point and with a great view. It has good room facilities like kitchenette and good bathroom. It was clean and affordable.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights...it is located in an ok neighbourhood but few blocks away is the not so desirable neighbourhood (I will be cautious if walking at night). A bit louder during night time especially weekends. The staffs are polite and very helpful...can't really say anything negative about them as they are all amazing. Our room... More

I came to Sydney this week for uni and stayed at the Macleay and thought the room was nice and clean, but best of all was the location. It was $20 cab to uni, $10 to the city with great restaurants right at the door step. It was good value and I would definitely stay again next trip.

Very tired rooms and surroundings. For the price they're asking it truly is a joke. There are much better appointed and modern rooms available throughout Potts Point that are considerably cheaper. Location isn't that ideal either. We were pretty disappointed once we stepped into our room but what really got our blood boiling was the ridiculous rules they impose re:... More

The hotel is quite basic but it offers good value. The room was comfortable although the furniture and bathroom are quite old. The cleanliness was ok, although some more attention is needed for corners, lamps, etc… Morning reception was very helpful, allowed for an early check-in not only for us but they were making the effort for other people who...

We had a great few days in Sydney. Our room had a harbour view which was fantastic! Good restaurants cafes and a supermarket nearby and if you enjoy walking an easy walk to the city; The room is not huge with a small kitchen. The only negative and a minor one was that the bath room is tiny. The reception... More

The hotel located in a good location, and all the things are good except for the night shift staff's services.I went to sydney with my other two friends from oversea during the weekend, and we went out for drink on Saturday night. When we went back to the hotel, it was around 4 o'clock. The security did not let us... More

I stopped here before having my operation and my husband stayed whilst he visited. We had a harbour view room (not opera house or bridge) and it had everything we could have needed. There was a small kitchenette with microwave which was also an oven and grill also a fridge. The bathrooms could do with updating but they were spotless.... More
