We got a great deal for this hotel and the room was a real suprise. We were in Sydney for our last night in Australia, the night before flying to Singapore. We loved the style and location of this hotel. The rooms are a reasonable size and nicely appointed. Our only negative was the shower in the bath... We're in... More

We stayed as a couple for a weekend as tourists, in a marina view suite (with a mezzanine bedroom). Pro's: 1. Great location - 10 minute walk into the CBD, lots of restaurants at the base of the hotel, and lots of suburbs withinin walking distance with great restaurants. 2. Quaint building - old wharf building, lots of character, exends... More

Funky hotel close to the C B D but not really walking distance. Positive: some of Sydney's best restaurants are in the building. (Booking essential). Negative: rooms in need of refurbishment. Just a coat of paint on walls and doors would make such a difference. We had a Marina view room which was spacious, comfortable bed, big bathroom with shower... More

This is really a very beautiful hotel in a historic building on one of the best spots in town. If you need more than luxury but something to remember, then experience this one. Breakfast was very good and the service was excellent. The rooms need to be refurbished.

What a surprise. I felt like I stepped into a cruise ship come time machine or Maritime museum. could feel the ghosts of the dock workers loading wool onto tall ships, with all the old shipping ropes and pullies still hanging in place. Awesome old school photos of Woolloomooloo area and the Sydney Harbour. . The Best location ever, 2... More

While staying at Finger Wharf with our son, my husband had an accident in the foyer of the Blue Hotel. He was not concentrating on where he was going and fell over spraining his ankle. The staff on duty were so helpful, putting ice over his ankle and calling for an ambulance. My husband is now on crutches for a... More

Had a great stay at this quirky hotel. It has been done up well. Beautiful view over the water. Breakfast was pricey for what it was. Would stay here again for location and style . Pool are awesome . Restaurants below, expensive waste of time, people just go there to be seen. Pub over the road best for all meals.

We have been regular visitors to the Blue Hotel mostly to sample their fabulous cocktails in the WaterBar. Today we were pleasantly surprised by the thoughtfulness and ingenuity of Jeremy - one of the waiting staff in the Blue Cafe. Jeremy is an absolute credit to your organization and puts the customer at the fore front of every interaction.

We chose this hotel because of its location and we were not disappointed. The hotel is amazing, quirky in its design, turning an old wharf/warehouse into a beautiful modern hotel. Our room was lovely, the bed very comfortable, loved the pillows, well appointed bathroom with nice products that were replenished daily. Staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble....
