I stayed here very recently for one night. It is a nice clean hotel but a bit dated. The room does have a kitchen and laundry which is good for a couple staying for a while and wanting to cook but no TV in the bedroom area. Location is good within 5 minutes walk of Darling Harbour but the views... More

This hotel was in a really great location and the staff were very friendly and very helpful. The air conditioning in our room gave off a terrible smell but we were only staying one night so didn't bother mentioning it and just slept with balcony door open. Bathroom was a bit dated and the basin had a crack in it... More

Great location just down from Town Hall Station and around the corner from the pedestrian bridge over Darling Harbour. I booked a studio room which has a kitchenette (microwave, small fridge, cooking elements, toaster, kettle - and all the equip to use these - though the knives are pretty blunt). There is a sofa and small dining table with separate... More

Excellent hotel, large rooms. This is a small hotel with pleasant check in staff and is in a great location, close to Darling Harbour and Central Sydney. I was travelling on business and it had everything I needed including large bed, small dining table, couch and kitchenette. I'd definitely stay again. I would have rated it excellent except you pay... More

Great location in walking distance of city shopping, Darling Harbour and Cockle Bay. Executive studio room a good size. Bathroom a little outdated and fridge needed attention. Staff very helpful and friendly.

This hotel has fantastic location. Anywhere it's just some minutes of walking. Apartment itself was very old looking and the wall were probably very thin because we could hear really everything what people next door or above us were doing. Staff in reception is very nice and helpful.

We had a studio with a spacious lounge and dining are. Location is great. Walk around the block and it's Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour. Up the road is shopping district - Queen Victoria Building, Myer, David Jones. Further down is Chinatown.

Location is very central and easy walking to city shopping areas, the Rocks, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. Just walk up Martin Place to Elizabeth Street and catch bus 333 to Bondi and it stops right at Bondi Icebergers Bistro - a must go to - We were given an upgrade so naturally appreciated that, and the staff were very...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
