We were pleasantly surprised with the Abey Hotel. The room was very clean, and the décor was modern. The location was also good if you don't want to be among the noise in the city, but still be relatively close to attractions in Sydney.

Great location to get around central Sydney. Nicely set out rooms, indoor pool/spa, very friendly staff - only too willing to help out. Rooms clean and reasonably spacious. Only down side is the car-parking - unless you driving a mini the carpark is too small, extremely tight, difficult to get in and out.

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
