My daughter and I just needed an Saturday overnight stay in Sydney to see a concert. I must admit that we usually stay in apartments opposite Hyde Park, which are very nice, but of course they wouldn't do the single night on a weekend. Fair enough....I manage a beachside apartment building and know the drill. I'd stayed at the Glasgow... More

Glasgow Arms gave us a very good accommodation in Sydney just a short walk from the CBD. Tasty breakfast served in the large room. Clean bathroom with daylight. The old pub in the first floor had a nice flair. The staff were friendly - and the area was very quiet at night. To stay at the Glasgow Arms Hotel is... More

This is a charming little hotel with nice old fashioned styled rooms. Stayed in a queen which was nicely appointed with colonial style furnishings and flat screen tv. Little balcony. Hotel served a great bistro dinner at a good price and included a continental breakfast in the room fee. The hotel is a great location to Darling Harbour and China... More

Stayed at the Glasgow after chosing it for the location and price. Was very satisfied with the customer service, the atmosphere and the breakfast. We arrived knowing that it was not a large corporate chain or boutique hotel but with those expectations were very pleased with our choice. Would stay again
