We stayed here for 2 nights in September and we had a great experience. All the staff were very friendly & helpful & they let us check in early because the room was ready. The room was small but clean & the bed was really comfy. Nice bathroom/shower too. Definitely recommend & will stay here again.

Beds where comfortable, price was good, clean and well maintained. Looks recently repainted. We only spent one night in the cheapest room, but for the price paid it was a nice comfy stay. Would stay again.

I've stayed at the Vulcan Hotel a number of times over the years and have always found it to be 'warm and friendly' - somewhat like your country holiday cottage. It's close to the city centre and Darling Harbour. The rooms are not large but are quaint and comfortable with all the conveniences you need in a room. Nice restaurant... More

I stayed here a couple of nights for work, which was located on Glebe Point Road, less than a 10 min walk away. The location was fine for that; I didn't go any further afield, so hard to judge if it's a good location if you're a visitor or tourist to Sydney. The room was fine; mine overlooked the main... More

Vulcan hotel was the perfect choice to stay in while being in Sydney. Loved the furniture and the way the whole hotel looked like. The hotel is located next to the university. Not really in the middle of town but within a 10 min. you are in the middle of everything- just what I wanted. In addition to that, staff... More

Accused by the owner at 1am this morning of setting off the fire alarm. What the?!?!?! Incredibly rude man. The whole experience has left a very bad impression. Won't be recommending this place any time soon

Joanna, it is unfortunate that the fire brigade and owner entering your room to check on your well being during a fire alarm was intrusive in your opinion. No blame pointing at all, we simply were worried for your safety. Regards, Carole and Harvey - Owners More

As a regular visitor to Sydney and a regular at the Vulcan I find satying there is like staying with a good friend and not the sterile enviroment of most large hotels. It is a no fuss well located hotel with lots of charm. The staff are friendly and as a regular treat you as such.

We've stayed several times at the Vulcan as it ticks all the boxes for a young family or for a couple. With kids we had a great space that was very comfortable for us all. As a couple we were upgraded and the room was quiet and well set out. This is a great location and the breakfast downstairs is... More
