Located a bit out of the way from the city. Found the room good and the staff were good to advise on things to do. But a fair walk up to the city. Is good near to the central station which has other advantages.

Stayed 3 days for business and the room was spacious with all the amenities. Lift is a little slow and location is about 700m walk to Central Station. I would have given this hotel a higher rating if not for last night's incident. There was a roach under the couch that really freaked me out. Can't believe this was happening... More

In stayed in this hotel for 1 night on a business trip. After and exhausting day I just wanted a drink from the mini bar and to my surprise - I found a tiny packet of milk in the fridge. Not the hotel you would want to relax in after a hectic day at the office. I would probably rate... More

I'm surprised the GM has time to spend on TripAdvisor responding to other travelers while there is this much drama going on at the hotel right now with their online booking service and it seems no one there is capable of sorting out our booking or even calling us back. We tried to book a hotel room here last year... More

The Sebel is a step above a budget hotel. For some reason it does attract a lot of business clientele. It's on the edge of Surry Hills, not really at the heart of the hip neighborhood (maybe that's why it recently took Surry Hills out of its name and now goes by Rydges). You have to walk up the hill... More

Our suite at the Sebel was an amazing room with a huge amount of space and beautifully set out. I am, however quite disappointed at being overcharged for our Accor inclusive breakfast and not receiving my brand new face cream which was left in the bathroom back from housekeeping. It makes it seem like the staff at this hotel are... More

There is really nothing to fault about this hotel. It was clean. Employees were polite. Room service was prompt. It is close to Central station (exit the Elizabeth street exit and turn left). The hotel is approximately one long block from the train station with a slight decline/incline. Seven eleven is between the train station and hotel - a great... More

The Sebel was once an iconic Hotel for the glitterati of the Australian Pop industry. Sadly its best days are long gone but......its still a pretty good place. Its really handy to the Central Train Station making trips within the city or further afield very easy. The best aspects are ; the bed was very comfy and the room very... More
