We had a special cheap deal during May for three nights. The location is quite central and not far from Wynyard, just down the hill a bit. The major drawbacks are the major construction site of Barangaroo across the road and the flyover freeway above the hotel, that leads onto Sydney Harbour Bridge. Our room looked over Kent Street so... More

On the plus side the room was spacious, the check in was very professional and friendly and it was all easy. The room was a little tired and musty but fine for the price. On the down side, it's in that dead part of Kent St, there are very few shops or restaurants nearby and it's a 20 min walk... More

check in was no hassle. when we came in the room was big. with sofas n big toilet and shower. no bathtubs though. the kitchen is another highlight. has a hot plate, and all the cooking utensils are tucked in the kitchen cabinet. one thing to note about this hotel, no breakfast included, but cafes and restaurants are close nearby,...

These self contained apartments are clean and modern and everything their website says they are! Within easy walking distance of The Rocks, Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Sydney CBD, and Wynyard Station is only 300m up the road. The apartments include a kitchenette with all the facilities you are likely to need, as well as wi fi access and cable... More

If you are looking for a self catering apartment, then the Napoleon on Kent is a good option. Rooms are a good size and the location is excellent being very close to King St Wharf, the Rocks and Wynyard Station. A lot of the construction works at Barangaroo are impacting some pedestrian access, but not too badly. The rooms are... More
