My husband and I stayed at the Ultimate Apartments from NYE for a week for the last stop in our 3 week trip to Australia. It wasn't that bad, but we only booked here because it was one of the very few places available (book extra extra early for NYE!!) and was in our budget (although to be fair it... More

Front rooms have VERY noisy traffic. Motel had an ant problem. Reasonably clean. Would pay extra to stay somewhere else. No tea or coffee. House next door had a party till early hours. 2 nights of poor sleep. Reception didn't offer to anything upon complaints. Otherwise location was good and security.

Easy to get to the beach or Bondi junction! Walk or bus. Extremely uncomfortable fold out bed, and not very comfortable main bed. Friendly hosts and great location saved this place from how bad the beds are.

It was very difficult to find a place that was within our budget with parking! Bondi was our last stop after 5weeks camping down the east coast. Despite the bad reviews for here we went for it! I think some of the reviews for here are quite old so always look at the date! Fantastic security! Big gates and huge... More

We had need for short stay accommodation in Eastern Sydney and found the Ultimate Apartments a great solution to our needs. It is not 5-star accommodation but neither is the price - in fact it was very good value for Sydney. One of the nicest features was being able to get away from the road noise and being able park...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 10 days starting off our world trip, the location was great, walk straight to the end of the road and Bondi Beach is there, you have your own cooking facilities(it's a portable cooking hob) which looks weird but is actually quite handy n does the job! The bus stop is right outside which... More

We have stayed here twice before especially since the destruction of our favourite Swiss Grande. Bondi Beach is one of the only famous beaches in the world that no longer has a large hotel/resort on the beachfront so thank heavens the Ultimate Apartments have survived. We always enjoy our stay here as the rooms are large and comfortable, the showers... More

Great budget accommodation in expensive Bondi. Lu-Ann and the other staff on reception are incredibly helpful and the former army barracks accommodation is clean, secure and convenient for beach, bus-stops, shops and eating places. The laundry room is very well equipped. But don’t expect anything to be cheap in Bondi !!
