The staff at Macleay was helpful, courteous and professional. The rooms were not large, but they were clean and comfortable and the cost was reasonable. I would not hesitate to stay there again. .....

We stayed at the Macleay for two nights and were very happy with it, there were four of us, two adults and two kids - one in a travel cot, and we did have two doubles beds in our room, so it was a little tight on space but the rooms were clean and everything that we needed was provided.... More

My brother-in-law recommended this hotel to us and it was a great recommendation. We stayed in room 911 and had a fantastic view of the Sydney Opera House (picture attached). The room was tidy and had all the necessary utilities. There is a small kitchen area, the bathroom was spotless and the shower was great. Service was friendly. Upon arrival,... More

It has everything you need. The room was clean, the view fantastic, the beds comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a bit of a walk to the nearest underground station and the bus service isn't very frequent. Close to the supermarket and plenty of restaurants.

We were looking, at short notice, for somewhere close to the city to stay, and was hard to find somewhere within a decent distance that was cheap, this hotel kept popping up in the searches, so we took a punt on it. Purely from the point of the location, it was exactly what we wanted, the rest of it wasn't... More

May be not the most modern or luxurious hotel available hence not 5* However, many hotels in Oz don't provide free WiFi and the Macleay does. It seemed to need logging onto every time but it worked and was reasonably quick. There's a pool too, but very small so don't select this hotel on that basis alone. However the staff... More

The Macleay is situated in a convenient location, with some nice cafes nearby. The room was clean, with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was rather pokey though with the shower a tight squeeze next to the bathroom basin. The staff at reception were very helpful and professional.

We could not have found a better hotel and location to spend our time in Sydney. We stayed here for 8 days. The staff was very helpful. The hotel was sleek, clean and very comfortable. The location to catching a bus was within a 2 minute walk going either direction. We had an early morning pickup for a tour and... More

The hotel is well located, walking distance from King's Cross station (not too far from George Street either), and in a lovely neighbourhood filled with cafes and little stores. I was travelling alone to Sydney, and felt very safe in walking back to the hotel at 10 pm. The front desk were very helpful and friendly. I enjoyed my stay... More
