Only had a single night here, but was well looked after. I arrived around 8pm and was greeted by friendly reception staff and owner/manager. Both were very friendly. I had a ground floor room and was a bit worried about noise levels from the road, but it shouldn't have - pretty quiet for such a central city location. The room... More

Fabulous position. Walk to Central Station, walk to light rail, walk to buses, walk to the Fish Markets, and connect with ferries by any of the above. Leave the car where it is - great in Sydney. All one needs is an Opal card! The hotel still retains its "olde worlde" charm but has all the modern facilities one enjoys... More

In Sydney for weekend conference. Hotel was recommended by conference organisers as located near by. Good value for money. Rooms were small though neat and clean. Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. No restaurant dining, but could recommend local eateries which were within easy walking distance. Location close to shopping and main CBD. Happy customers

Loved it! Walking up to the hotel I could see it had character and charm and I had big expectations. These expectations were all met as soon as I walked inside and continued to be met even after checking out! The young lady at reception was polite and so so helpful. I was lucky to be upgraded to an executive... More

The hotel is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney but at the same time is close enough to walk to comfortably. Rooms are small but neat and tidy. If noise is a problem ask for an upstairs room as the thumping of feet on the stairs was a little annoying. The only thing I would say is... More

Gallen999 Thansk for mentioning that we are tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet so close to all the action. Good suggestions about clocks I will talk to the owners about it. Regards Christine - Manager More

The hotel was quiet nice for the price we payed. Right in the middle of the city. There was a dirty wine glass left in the room from the previous guests. Mould in the shower & the traffic was quiet loud.

I have lived in the Pyrmont/Ultimo for many years now. I have heard of the Vulcan before and walked past it a hundred times. But recently - whilst between apartments - I needed a little B&B to stay in. Which based on the rates was what I expected. How wrong was I! This is a beautiful little boutique hotel! Fantastic,...
