Two of us stayed in a Deluxe room on the 14th floor for 4 nights.
We found this hotel to serve our needs quite nicely. It is within walking distance of most Sydney city attractions. It is across the road from a subway station that gives you regular direct travel routes to all parts of the city and the greater Sydney area (Bondi, Blue Mountains). We were driving to Sydney and required parking for the duration of our stay, the Hyde is one of a few in the city to offer free parking ( even if it is a little cramped down there!). We wanted a smoking room which the hotel offered. The hotel has 24 hour reception, who were polite and helpful. The room was well maintained and spacious for 2 of us, with a small balcony that had very nice views of the cathedral and harbor glimpses, as well as wonderful views of Hyde Park beneath you. Kitchenette with 2 burner electric stove top. While the bathroom was quite fresh, the one suggestion i would have for the management would be to have some sort of extractor fans installed in the bathrooms. Nothing spoils a relaxing holiday like lingering odours! Also, there was no toilet brush for our use, which would have been handy.
Each morning a basic breakfast of cereal, milk, tinned fruit, juice and bread for toasting with condiments is brought to your room, which we enjoyed each day, sometimes even as an afternoon snack.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking well priced, professionally run comfort in a very central location, giving you great access to everything Sydney has to offer.
