4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My daughter and I were in Sydney for a shopping weekend. This Hotel was in such a good location - walking distance to shopping, Circular Quay and just 2 minutes walk to Wynward Station. I would definitely stay here again.

We chose to stay here due to the location. Very walkable to everything we wanted to see. Also the room had a washer and dryer which was important. However, the room was a bit run down. The dryer didn't work and when we called the front desk they thought we just didn't know how to use it. Finally they sent... More

I travelled to Sydney for the weekend with my friend. This is my first time in Australia and I was quite excited about venturing out and exploring what Sydney had to offer. We were in the room getting ready for a night out when my friend spotted something by the wardrobe next to the bed, around 15 minutes later I... More

This hotel was perfect for our trip. Friendly staff. Big rooms. Great pool area. Close to heaps of good places in The Rocks. It's only downfall was late night food options nearby. Could have done with a kebab shop downstairs but I guess you can't have everything. We will stay here again.

Stayed here for 3 nights after arriving in Sydney, super handy for the airport train as it's just minutes from Wynyard Station. The checkin staff were friendly and helpful, the room itself, an "unrefurbished apartment" was perfectly good. Spacious, clean with loads of useful stuff like washing machine, dishwasher and fully stocked kitchen. All at a good price for somewhere... More

As always the apartment was clean, well maintained, serviced every... More

The location is excellent. Restaurants, attractions (Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Botanical Garden, Sydney Tower, The Rocks, Darling Harbour, Hyde Park, St. Mary's Cathedral, Madam Tussaud's,etc..), shops (Westfield, Queen Victoria, etc...), groceries, bus and train stations are just within walking distance. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The one we were in (standard 2-bedroom ensuite) had balconies. It has everything... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
