I am writing this review from one of their rooms. My wife and i arrived here yesterday and i received an immediate great surprise from Vulcan! Apparently Julia (i think so) had upgraded me to a bigger room with balcony as a goodwill gesture reason being that i had indicated in our booking that we were here for our honeymoon.... More

The staff werre friendly and the rooms were clean and quiet Most hotels in Sydney have a restaurant located inside, and... More

Everything was impeccably clean and tidy. The sheets were wonderful and the cleanliness added to my comfort. I slept very well. Breakfast was delicious. For me, cleanliness is the most important consideration in booking a hotel and the Vulcan scores a 10 on that point. Staff are all very courteous and competent, and I'll certainly think of staying at the... More

I stayed at the Vulcan Hotel in Ultimo for one night this week on business. I chose it because it was within easy walking distance to the majority of my meetings up in Sydney and because it was reasonably priced for the area ($148 + tax per night for a Standard Queen). THE PRO’S - The location is pretty convenient.... More

Hello RantingJules, Thanks for your very detailed review. We pride ourselves on our lovely staff and real Aussie style breakfast. With regards to the smells you are referring to that could be freshly laid carpet. We have just invested in high quality carpet being laid throughout the entire hotel. This is most likely the odour you are referring too. The... More

Stayed here a while back (September 2015) and forgot to write a review. The staff were wonderful, the room was quite large for the price and quiet considering how close to the road it is located (and on a corner). There were reservations going on at the time of our stay however this was done discretely. Close to Glebe restaurants... More
