Whenever we are in town to watch a theatre show, the Grand Chancellor is one of our first preferences, due to its convenient location - everything is within a quick stroll - the Princess Theatre, the Regent Theatre. Being our fourth visit, we stayed in a budget double-bed room but we were not disappointed! The room had been refurbished with... More

We were really impressed with the refurbished room and its scenic view over Lonsdale Street. The room was tastefully furnished and very spacious. The roof top pool was stunning in the evening. Breakfast was fresh and delicious and service was excellent. We will definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Grand Chancellor for 2 nights over a weekend. Price was rather steep for the small room that we stayed in, but as it was the weekend there weren't many options when booking last minute, so we paid quite a premium for our little room. The room, although small, was very well appointed and modern. I was... More

small room, lots of noise filtering through from both within and without the hotel. when we checked in only one lift was operating then within an hour both lifts were out of action. only saving grace was the staff, super friendly and really coped well with the flack they were copping from guests.

Stayed there for three days. Pluses: Very good location, can walk to everything in CBD. Friendly front desk staff-- cheerfully answered questions. Minuses: Smallish, outdated room. A$22/pp breakfast. High priced room. Only use it if everything else is sold out.

Room was small, we had an economy king, and as usual the photos make it look huge, but it was ok for our short stay. I don't stay in many hotels but did expect more lushness for a four star rating, I may be behind the times! Balcony, if you want to call it that, most of it taken up... More

This hotel is well located for CBD business. Plenty of restaurants close by and very handy for public transport. I have stayed in an economy double room and a premier king. The economy double was OK for the price and the bed was comfortable. Just be aware some rooms are small, can be rather dark with no outlook and the... More

Stayed for two nights and it was situated in Lonsdale street which was close to everything and a real bonus. The room was clean and tidy but lacked space as did the bathroom although the shower was hot and had no pressure fluctuation. Service from the front desk bar, and restaurant was above average and we were always greeted with... More

I stayed at Grand Chancellor with my girlfriend to take in the sites and check out the comedy festival. Hotel is well located and convenient to everything (especially Chinatown). Room was reasonable for the price. They have a beautiful open air pool on the rooftop - however it was too cold!
