Room 614 for 6 nights. The hotel location as we know is great. Park gardens out front and Circular Quay just around the corner. Only issue is Macquarie Street which is out the front and outside of room 614. I thought it might be noisy - it was on Saturday night. Single glazed window is not good and I was... More

We chose this hotel because the location seemed favourable, being close to both rail and ferry terminals. It could not have been better, not just for location but for every other advantage we could have wished for. Could not have been better!

this property is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed, it is located close to everything in Sydney that we needed to access and if not the concierge will get you a taxi, the overall ambience and the professionalism of the staff who all make you feel like you are the most important person there.

Lovely smaller character hotel with very helpful, charming service. Liked that the hotel was quieter than big busy hotels. Great location, close to the Opera House, the Circular Quay ferries, across the street from the botanical gardens, an easy walk to the shops and museums of the CBD, to the Rocks area and to Darling Harbour. Our room was a... More

The Sir Stamford at Circular Quay enjoys a top notch location in the CBD of Sydney offering short walks to the Opera House, the ferry terminals, the Harbour Bridge and the enormous Royal Botanical Gardens just across the street waiting to be explored.

We stayed in one of the suites on 10th floor, the room was huge and nicely decorated. Although you pay more we thought the price wasn't too expensive. Good location close to opera house, bridge, shops, restaurants. Nice pool on the 5th floor. We had a late flight and as you check out in the morning the hotel staff let... More

We only stayed for one night but enjoyed every minute of it. Located within a short walk to the opera house or botanic gardens, it is quite convenient. We have stayed in other hotels in Sydney and the service and reception here would have to be one of the best. The Sir Stamford may not be set in a modern,... More

First you cannot find a better location. Across from the gardens. A short block to the opera house and just over the bridge to the harbor area. If you go the opposit way you are in the middle of the business district with great cafes for breakfast. The concierge is very helpful going out of eir way to ensure you... More

The hotel is dated and smells musty. The hotel feels like an old gentleman's club. Hotel rooms are a good size. But walls are thin and you can hear the other guests. Location is excellent, very close to Circular Quay and Sydney Opera House. We was only there for a short stay so not too fussed, a longer stay would... More
