5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was a surprisingly great value stay. The Accom was really spacious and well presented if slightly dated. A better desk would be an improvement for business travellers but not an inconvenience for me on this visit. Rooms were dark, bed comfortable. The rooms focus around an indoor pool which adds a bit of atmosphere. At just $110, great value!

No windows in rooms. Microscopic complementary toiletries. Why bother. Cochroach under bed. I know it's a Sydney thing as the ròom seemed clean but wasn't pleasant Location is the best feature. It seems this site is called the Cambridge and the abey and the adage which is confusing

Firstly the young blonde short haired receptionist was absolutely lovely and helpful, secondly for the price the room definitely exceeded my expectations. Unlike other cheap hotels in Sydney the rooms were very clean, large, new enough and comfortable. Also the hotel was literally just around the corner from Oxford street, close walk to the city and China town. The only... More

Bed and pillows not comfortable., but otherwise the room was good value for the price we paid on lastminute.com Sometimes we waited up to 5 minutes for the... More

Browse and booked through internet. Nice, clean and well equipped room, it was small though. To get to your room you will pass the pool area which is smell of chlorine but don't worry not in the room. Expect noises from people playing in the pool.

Having not enjoyed my experienced at the Cambridge I felt very misled to discover this was in fact the same building just under a different name. Due to the set up of the rooms surrounding the pool it was also very noisy and I was woken twice around 4am with people returning to their rooms. My room was also not... More

The Abey is a smart modern hotel in a quiet part of Surrey Hills and is pretty good value for a hotel of this quality near the centre of Sydney. The location may not suit everyone. While it is close to the centre, it is still a reasonable walk from attractions and restaurants. It is a stiff 15 minute walk... More
