A day before check in I got an email asking for preferences, I picked high floor street view, I actually got lowest floor, courtyard view..so a pointless system I guess. The rooms were I think flash for the Sydney Olympics, just ok now. My bathroom light flickered and the jug mysteriously didn't work until it decided to boil in the... More

I had not stayed here before. We had stayed in World Tower with children but just needed a room for two. Booked well in advance so go a great price and with my Rydges card even cheaper. World Square is perfect for us, close to Haymarket & China Town. We say a show a star city, just caught the light... More

I stayed their recently for work and was impressed with the service and location of the property, the front desk staff were friendly and courteous as well as professional. The refurbished rooms were nice and modern, the bathroom was spacious and clean. The only downside I experienced was that there was no view from my window, that was the only... More

Overall our experience was good. Great location for food, theatre & cinema. The mattress were very comfortable… We were 3 female friends on a special weekend. The family room was good for us. The traffic noise from Pitt St is a problem - try double glazing - there is a new concept out now like double glazing you can "clip"... More

We have stayed at World Square on numerous occasions. I would like to congratulate management on the excellent front office service that we received on check in. I had checked in online for the first time and it was great. We were upgraded to a suite which we appreciated. Room Service was fast and the food was outstanding as usual.... More

My husband and I had a very comfortable stay for 3 nights, free wifi was good but a bit slow, ice machine handy, good sound proofing so traffic noise didn't bother us. Lots of shops and eateries close by in World Square. Would stay again.

Great location very central. Excellent accommodation and service in front of house and in the bar area. G and T $5. Around the corner is the Grill'd Healthy Burgers, the best tasting burger ever! We will be back to the hotel and the burger place. Also green tea from the Asian grocer near by is MUCH cheaper and better selection... More

Dear Disappointed 524, Please accept my sincere apologies for the information relayed to you and the allocation of room room type. The room type should have been 2 double beds with a rollaway so that your request for 3 beds could have been fulfilled. Unfortunately as you mentioned a king bed with a rollaway was allocated. Although this could have... More

All was good but disappointed that window let nightclub and road noise in which made for sleeping impossible. This completely spoilt our overall experience. Breakfast and meal was excellent. If we had a room away from Pitt street then I would not be able to fault my overall experience.
