We had a good stay- the location was great as we were doing things on the north end of the city. The room was nice- lots of space and good beds! The toilet could have been a tad better - the shower taps were a bit off.

This hotel is in a great location for just about anything you want to do/see in Sydney. Nothing too fancy but a great place to rest your head between sight seeing. Close to the opera house, harbor bridge, circular quey and shopping.

Room Tip: We stayed facing the park and it was nice.

Stayed here for 3 nights, my partner had a business trip and has stayed here before. When we arrived which was late we asked if we apha a refurbished room which the girl replied yes, but when we got to our room it was not a refurbished room, we think she just wanted to get rid of us.... We did make a call down to reception to say this is not what we booked could we move and was told no rooms available tonight but to ring in the morning, which we did and was moved into a new room, which was much better. The breakfast was fine enough variety to keep you going. All in all this ok was great location wise for my partner with his business and for me for shopping and sight seeing, it is not a luxury hotel but was fine for what we required. Would probably stay there again...

Room Tip: Choose the refurbished rooms...

This was the best hotel that i've stayed in Sydney. The hotel rooms was clean and the beds very very comfy.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. Hotel was very central and easy to get access to the Wynard Train station to get to the airport and other places.

Will stay here again.

The Menzies Sydney is a fantastic location with Wynyard train station across the road. Circular Quay, Harbour Bridge and the Opera House an easy walk with several dinning options. The staff are very friendly and the pillows and beds are fantastic!!!
The buffet breaky is great and I wish I could remember the name of the the guy who made my coffe the best I can do is let you know he was bald but for those of you who are coffee lovers this guy makes a mean coffee.

Room Tip: Ask for a park view room.
