We stayed for a week. The aircon was not really good so it was a bit hot and stuffy. However, for the location, it was cheap (we booked on Expedia) and the price included fresh milk, boxed cereal, juice, bread and spreads in the room. It's Sydney, so there are roaches but we only dealt to about six over the... More

Me and my girlfriend wanted to get away from home and decided to go to darling Harbour . I found the Glasgow arms within walking distance of everything including the Harbour, paddy market, rail etc. The owner was a great fellow, very polite and the rooms were clean

This is a great little pub. We have stayed here before and have found the staff friendly, the food absolutely the best (and great prices) and the rooms very comfortable. It is an ideal spot for a look at the best of Sydney and then not far to the airport. Less than $30 by taxi. We just hail one from... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and 5 days. We did mostly the touristy stuff in Sydney so we didn't get to stay in the hotel that much. The airconditioning was "old" but I was surprised that it kept us cool during those warm days! The room was beside the main street so I was worried I wouldn't get much sleep... More

I travel to Sydney before I went over to New Zealand, dropping by this hotel & found that the hotel was very recommendable to people. The room was amazingly clean with a very comfortable bed plus ensuite with a bathroom. There was a bar just next to the hotel where you can get good food with walking distance. The room... More

A single room with attached bath is all you need when travelling alone and Galsgow Arms had the place for me. Friendly, welcoming but non-interfering staff, access to food from the bar downstairs and steps from Light Rail transportation that gets you to Central and then everywhere else. Two recommendations: a waste basket would be nice in the room and... More

The staff were absolutely awesome, the guy who checked me in even carried my bag to my room. The accommodation was comfortable and clean but the room could definitely use some tlc. It is a great location, only about 10-15 minutes from Darling Harbour.

I travel to Sydney weekly for business usually staying 1-2 nights whilst there. I have been looking for a family run hotel where I can not only get a good quality room with ensuite facilities but also a first class meal and somewhere that feels like a home away from home. I finally found all three of those things at... More

If you are looking for a good economical short stay in Sydney, I can recommend the Glasgow Arms Hotel on Harris St Ultimo. It is a fair walk from Central station but directly opposite the Powerhouse Museum and just a stroll to Darling Harbour and even across to the city, if you want. The beds were very comfy and the...
