I have stayed in Sydney several times and know how difficult it is to find a cheaper hotel in the city which is quiet yet central. Because Hotel 59 had good reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to take a chance and book for 7 nights, even though I imagined that Bayswater Rd might be a noisy location. However, the... More

Reviewing is all about comparisons and expectations. As Hotel 59 was the first stay on our 6 weeks trip through Australia, there was obviously nothing to compare with. So only the expectations remained, mainly based on the reviews here and the info from the place itself. To start with: all the factual things mentoned here before are true. The hotel... More

I stayed in Hotel 59 for 5 weeks. Most of all I loved the welcoming atmosphere. This small and quiet hotel is family run. George, his sister and father were very friendly and helpful.

Small B & B on tree-lined street several blocks off Kings Cross. Quiet neighborhood, convenient to bus line, restaurants, bars and a grocery store. Wonderful breakfast off the menu included. George, the proprietor and host, was friendly and helpful. Glad to experience the local flavor vs. a stay at a large hotel chain. Room very clean and comfortable. Great value!

This was a good choice for our one night in Sydney. The breakfast is a proper full breakfast, and room was comfortable, though nothing too special. George helped us to find our way (in the right direction) to walk into town. We stayed for two nights. Lots of options for restaurants around the hotel. Everything in Sydney is a little... More

Hotel 59 is in the Kings Cross area of Sydney. We were close to restaurants and mass transit. We were also close ( 3 blocks away) to the Red Light District, though there were no issues with this fact. Our room was nice, though small (typical for mid price Australian motels). A nice hot breakfast was included. Staff was friendly... More

Our stay at Hotel 59 was a positive experience. Room #9 was very comfortable, clean, and had ample room for our luggage.
