Fabulous hotel. I have stayed in this hotel about 10 times over the last few years. Being a converted heritage warehouse, each room is very different. I prefer the rooms to the side and away from the road at the front. The rooms on 2 levels are cool and funky but can be a bit on the small side. The... More

We enjoyed a 4 night break from pre-Christmas madness here. The room was well appointed and beds comfortable, the bathroom huge with separate big bath and shower. Walking distance from Potts Point, the Opera House and with bus access to Central station and Circular Quay. Next to Naval base so an interesting side show of shipping and a vast array... More

Dear JennyWandP, Thank you for staying at Blue Sydney, and for taking the time to post this review after your stay with us. Woolloomooloo is certainly an interesting, diverse and beautiful part of Sydney. So close to the CBD whilst seemingly miles away hovering over Sydney Harbour. With pools, parks, cafes, restaurants and even a naval base nearby, you are... More

Having recently experienced Blue Hotel for several nights, we are switching from our usual 4.5 star CBD lodgings and making Blue Hotel our preferred accommodation supplier for all Sydney business travel. The rooms are large, quiet and contemporary. The staff were friendly and supportive and, with so many great restaurants nearby, the Woolloomooloo location served us well. We thoroughly enjoyed...

Booked a last minute deal through an online service, calling hotel directly did not yield a cheaper price. Reception Staff also gave misinformation about breakfast, we were informed the hotel does not do breakfast yet it is there in the hotel restaurant. We booked the deluxe pier view loft, and the room itself is quite large with two separate living... More

Great location within walking distance of the city, the harbour, botanic gardens and Kings Cross. Fantastic views back over the city from the one side of the hotel. The rooms are large and well equipped. Service was good. The pool and gym are nice - once you've found them (no signs!). Gripes? No free WIFI in the rooms - whilst... More

Dear IBB241, Thank you so much for choosing to stay at Blue whilst in Sydney.

I stayed at the Blu by accident and what a lucky accident it was. Maybe it is slightly away from the Sydney center but the rooms could not be nicer---modern, large, great amenities. The renovation of the old wharf is spectacular and the service impeccable. if your plans take you to Sydney, you cannot do better than the Blu
