Great place to stay---just down the steps from Potts Point which is a great little charmer of a neighborhood in Sydey and 10 minutes walk thru the Botanical Gardens and you are at The Opera House and Circular Quay

Dear mkmhkg, Thank you for your review of your quirky room! being a heritage listed building (and 100 years old), it does make for some very interesting architecture. I am glad you found Potts Point. A hidden gem really to many of Sydney's visitors. I highly recommend exploring into Darlinghurst and Surry Hills on future visits to find more of... More

We stay at The Blue on the Wharf at Woolloomooloo quite often for business and also nights out in the City. The staff are great and the rooms fantastic ranging from good quality quick stay to luxury with space and views. The hotel is on the historic wharves remodelled into accommodation and top class restaurants just at your door! The... More

Very nice hotel, right on the water, good choice of restaurants below the hotel. They added a complimentary bottle of champagne upon learning that it's our wedding anniversary. Nice touch! Our room faces the road rather than the water, which is a little noisy but nothing to complain about.

Dear Cam S, CONGRATULATIONS! I am so pleased that you and your other half had an enjoyable anniversary stay with us. The bottle of bubbles is the least we could do. It is reassuring to read that you enjoyed the local restaurants here at the wharf. They are indeed some of Sydney's favourite. I note from your other reviews that... More

My partner and I stayed at the Blue hotel for 11 nights at the end of April this year. The hotel itself was aesthetically pleasing and unique to any other ive stayed at, but i dont think what the hotel had to offer was like any other hotel ive stayed at before either. it felt like as soon as you...

What a place with lavish services, facilities... My favorite is Gym section and last but not the least the food which can not be compared on any basis. It's on the top of the list from my side!! The entrance infrastructure and living ambiance is like entering in the real palace!!

Blue is a hidden gem of a hotel. Surrounded by fantastic eateries, with fantastic views and walks around the harbour, quiet and close to the Sydney CBD and North Sydney precincts, Blue has everything I need for a pleasant AND productive business trip into Sydney.Quick check in and out and first class service!

The overall stay was pleasant and comfortable. The room was spacious and and clean. The amenities provided were satisfying. Stayed at a Deluxe Pier View King Room, the views from the room was not as good as expected. Got more of the views of the street rather than the sea. The TV cable was not very stable, the friendly engineering... More

We were booked into BLUE in a Deluxe Pier View Loft Suite for a 2 night stay. The rooms itself was fine without being anything special; very narrow but with the bed and bathroom upstairs there was plenty of space downstairs. The aircon was set very low and, later that night, we discovered why...the upstairs gets hot really quickly with... More

We stayed here as a Mother's Day present for my wife. Located on a Woolloomooloo wharf that was once a wool shed and later a cruise ship terminal. Heritage protected so the internal structure is nothing less than fascinating. We chose a big room on level 3 with views of the marina. Downstairs are Sydney's classy restaurants, one of which...

Dear Annesydney, Thank you for the rave review - we do love those here at Blue! The hotel will definitely be very 'modern and swishy' when the renovation is complete, but I do believe it will also retain and highlight the features that make it so unique as it stands now. We will also be including free Wi Fi for... More
