4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Only a short walk from Oxford St or Surry Hills, this place is very convenient. It's a modern place with a small pool and spa, good buffet breakfast and staff were very friendly. My room was big, comfortable and had all I need. Good Sydney option if you get a good online deal. Recommended

The Abey Hotel is in a great location. The room was comfortable, the facilities were basic but adequate and were very good value for Sydney. The twin room I was originally shown was very small and not very private due to the fact that once the black-out blinds and curtains were opened you looked onto about 10 apartments and they... More

I was lucky to be there just for the nights and made it to get some sleep. Rooms are tiny, dark and lound (noise from inside and outside). They charge extra for Wifi and even more for fast internet. Breakfast is boring and overpriced. At least it's clean.

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

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.
