I was here overnight, a quick trip to Sydney. No problem checking in; my room wasn't ready (1.30pm) so I went next door to the excellent Italian restaurant and had the lunch special. When I returned, my luggage was already in my room. The room (a twin) was clean, quiet and had loads of space. The bathroom is a little... More

The room was nicer than I expected from a 3 star hotel. Big beds, clean, well maintained. All staff really friendly and service minded. Would highly recommend this and would definitely stay here again. The negative is that they charge for wifi, so if you're planning on using your laptop you should take this into consideration.

Overall experience was average - slow and cumbersome check in procedure - limited natural light to rooms. Rooms relatively small but bathroom well equipped. Breakfast good in next door restaurant and reasonably priced at $17 for a full breakfast and $10 for children. Price we paid for two rooms plus car parking and breakfast was $550 - quite high.

Handy location in Surry Hills walking distance to the CBD (about 15 minutes). This is a budget hotel but really grey value for the price. Rooms are a decent size with one queen bed and one single. Clean and modern with everything you need.

We enjoyed our weeklong stay at the Abey. The hotel rooms are large. The beds are good if not a little bouncy. The bathroom is functional. The TV is large and channel selection is good.

Well located hotel in Surry Hills Sydney. Room clean and tidy and comfortable. Unfortunately a computer meltdown meant the check in took the best part of an hour and a half. Staff maintained composure in what would have been a very trying time for them.

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
