Boutique hotel built within old wool sheds. Wonderful atmosphere with much of the original character of the building maintained. Great location on wharf at Wooloomooloo, and overlooking the navy docks. The rooms are spacious and well appointed but windows and shutters could do with a good clean to make the best of the views. The reception staff were excellent and... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We went there last August 2015 during my birthday. The staff gave us a champagne, wow, that was a first as opposed to a cliche birthday cake. The hotel itself was really unique, I hope they won't change the look-and-feel that much. The room view was not that bad, facing a bunch of navy ships, but I was hoping to... More

I booked a room for my sons birthday. I advised the hotel when giving them my cc details. The lady said they might be able to send something up to his room. I was very surprised and happy to hear they sent a handwritten card wishing him happy birthday and some other gifts. What a lively gesture! My invoice was... More

I honestly considered barricading myself in the room so I didn't have to leave. When we arrived we were a bit disappointed because we booked through the wotif mystery deal we ended up in a twin room, which wasn't ideal for my partner and myself. They were too full to move us on the first night, but they moved us... More

Dear Moniquesamantha, Thank you for your glowing review and the accompanying photo of your bathroom view during your recent stay. I am so pleased you could shower while gazing in to the lights of the city skyline. The mystery deal is certainly a great bargain giving a good discount to any traveller brave enough to take a 'lucky dip' so... More

Not only were we made to move rooms, I had all my Aesop products and a perfume stolen in the process which was a total value of about $500. Unacceptable. The Service was terrible. I wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy. They obviously employ criminals. I would never stay here again.

Dear The_explorer1989, Thank you for your review. I understand that Thomas our Front Office Manager has been liaising with you regarding the situation stated here. It is most bizarre and is definitely a first time for us. What is more peculiar is that the products went missing whilst the necklace remained. We may not be able to totally solve this... More

The hotel was undergoing renovation work which started at 11am till 3pm which didn't bother us as we were out exploring during the day. We stayed in a "luxury marina loft" which has the living room on 1st level and the bed and shower facilities in the loft. There is no way we are able to carry out luggage up... More

Dear Peggy T, Thank you so very much for choosing to stay with us at Blue Hotel recently for your Sydney visit. I am so pleased that you liked the heritage building that the hotel is a part of. It is really due to this heritage status (the building is 100 years old this year) that we cannot physically change... More

I have just recently spent a night at Blue Sydney and enjoyed it so much can't wait to go back. The staff were so helpful and friendly, one of the best I have experience. The location was central to the city and Kings Cross and some excellent eateries were nearby. I would recommend anyone to stay there.

This was my second stay at Blue and, like the first occasion, couldn't fault it. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was a hassle and assisted in making bookings for restaurants on the wharf. Stunning location, clean rooms, added bonus of valet parking, close to the city and all in an unique building.

Never heard of this hotel group before but was very impressed with the little things. Undergoing renovations so looks like it will look amazing by December. They look after you by dropping in a cheeky shot of booze to help you get to sleep. I like the vibe and the location is amazing.

Dear Sean A, Thanks for the 'cracking' review! The 'Survival Kit' including a little shot is just a small taste (literally!) of what is to come from Ovolo. You may not have heard of us before, we are new to Australia after all, but I assure you there are bigger better things to come. We of course must be true... More
