“Comfortable Motel in Central Sydney”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We stayed at the Hyde Park Inn for three nights. It is comfortable, well appointed and good value for money. The simple breakfast suited us well. It has a convenient location close to the CBD, opposite a park and with easy access to the airport. We found the front desk staff helpful and friendly. Our only real criticism is of the poor quality of the servicing of the room during our stay. The beds were not made properly and the room was not cleaned properly either. Despite this, we would stay there again.

Room Tip: The higher the better to avoid traffic noise.

Just completed a 4 day stay. It was my first time at the Hyde Park Inn and wasnt disappointed. Reception were excellent from the time of making the reservation over the phone to time of check out. Greatly appreciated their assistance with my stay, well done to everyone.
I managed to secure a 4 day special rate which made the stay great value for money..free continental breakfast and free parking (unheard of in Sydney).We stayed on the 12th floor, room was recently refurbished with an excellent kitchen and delightful bathroom (it is small however everything was clean and near new with a shower recess with body soap/shampoo but no conditioner). The view was stunning over Hyde park and the memorial..we also had a small balcony which is an added bonus to soak up the city atmosphere. Rooms were very clean and had everything you need for your stay including a small dining table. Only disappointment is you have to pay for internet..not cheap at $22 per day or $11 per hour, however on the positive side at least I didnt waist time reading endless emails and checking websites..I used to the time to explore Sydney and enjoy some wonderful sites and restaurants.
The apartment style Hotel is very centrally located with the Museum station entrances just around the corner or diagonally opposite...the line will take you to Circluar Quay(The Rocks and Harbour area, Townhall (access to Darling Harbour) and Central station with connection to the domestic and international airports. It is also opposite the truly wonderful Hyde Park and the small war memorial (a hidden treasure) which is free to enter and a must when visiting Sydney. You are close by to many restaurants as you are only a short walk away from the World Centre which has a Coles super market, JB HI Fi, Price line Chemist and many eateries. You can easily walk to Darling Harbour and China Town both about 10 to 12 mins away.Being on Elizabeth St (2 way) you have easy access to taxis and local buses. Just a note of warning..the parking is very tight and even though you are allocated a space upon arrival, your car may move while staying at the hotel as they need to adjust due to other car sizes and size of parking space...(you leave your keys with them at reception). I didnt use my car at all during the stay.
There is no restaurant with the Hotel however you can access Mazzaro next door with a 10% discount available to dine in.The Hotel has a private entrance to the Restaurant and you can also order room service. The food and service is excellent.Disabled access is excellent at the hotel for entry into and throughout Hotel. 2 lifts available one of which goes to parking area.
Enjoy your stay and many thanks to all. Look forward to returning again.

Room Tip: Front rooms with a view of the park with small balcony are worth the extra dollars

We had a good size room for 3 adults, which had two double beds, kitchen area (small continential breakfast provided), balcony overlooking the park and for four nights amounted to $926. Also, free laundry good stairs. It's location was very central and all the main attractions within easy walking distance. Also, nearest station only about 200 meters away.

We booked a room with a kitchenette and free parking space for 3 nights and were very happy with it. Up on the 10th floor with a small baclony and superb views over Hyde Park. Considering the location, it is very quiet and reasonably priced. Only negatives are ... Bath towels are pathetically small, don't even think they are "child size"! Housekeeping let us a down a little as the room was not serviced until late afternoon, which was a problem when we came back after a day out and wanted to shower and change for dinner and a show. Pillows were way too hard, so take your own.

Staff were very friendly and efficient. On check out we asked if we could leave our car in the parking space while we went out for breakfast. No problem ... and they stored our luggage as well. We would stay there if ever in Sydney again.

We stayed for Mardi Gras weekend and we couldn't have picked a better location! The hotel was across Hyde Park, 5 minutes away from Oxford St. and a leisurely 10 minutes from the foodie strip that is Crown St., Surrey Hills! It was also walking distance to Westfield shopping centre. It's on a busy street but isn't at the centre of the CBD madness which is good- and it's pretty quiet on the weekend! The room was clean, new and having a small kitchenette with a stove & microwave could be quite handy- although we did eat out all the time! The bathroom was well-appointed and very clean. I would stay here again next time I'm in Sydney!

Really pleasant welcome. Ease of parking (free and that is bonus in Sydney!) and then we were introduced to our room. Couldn't have asked for more. The included continental breakfast was in the fridge the room quiet and clean despite being near a busy corner on Elizabeth St. With Hyde Park at the door step, Market St a few blocks in one direction, Darling Harbour in another this was a great spot to embark on an exploration of Sydney. Close enough to walk to most places we wanted to go but a bus outside meant everything was easy and the car stayed put. Will stay again!
