“Nice hotel in excellent location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

On the Room:
We got the family deluxe room for 4 on the 8th floor. Room is spacious with small kitchen complete with refrigerator, oven, microwave oven, sink, plates, cups, utensils. View from our room is very nice. You can see Hyde park and St. Mary's Cathedral from the balcony and kitchen window. Toilet has no tub -just shower.
Make sure to ask for a room on higher floor not just for the view but for the noise as well. Our room on the 8th floor is okay, you cannot hear the cars outside but you can hear the siren from the ambulance. So, I think it will be noisier in the rooms on lower floors.

On Cleanliness:
"Okay" when it comes to cleanliness. Toilet is clean. Bed sheets are clean though I saw a small stain on the brown sheet on top of the comforter. It's okay since its just for design and not really used as a blanket. I like the mini kitchen. Clean but oven is a bit dusty. I also noticed some dust on the towel rack in the toilet.
On service:
Service is okay. We were greeted at once when we entered the lobby. The receptionist asked for an ID and AU$50 deposit. Breakfast was being delivered to the room every afternoon. No dining room for breakfast. Continental breakfast include cereals, cookies, milk, orange juice, bread, butter,jam.

On Security:
I'm not sure if there is any but I did not see any security guard in the hotel. Nonetheless, we felt safe and secure.
There is no vault in the room so we made sure to bring all valuables with us whenever we go out of our room.

On Location:
This hotel is literally near every attraction. The hotel is located just in front of the beautiful Hyde Park. Train station is just across the street -Museum Station. It was so easy for us to ride the train, bus and taxi. QVB is just 10 minutes away by foot. There's a 7/11 store just beside the hotel lobby. 2 stops away from the Opera House by train.

On Value:
Compared to other hotels in good location, this one is definitely affordable. We stayed for 2 nights on peak season -Black Saturday and Easter Sunday. We got the room for US$600 via agoda. But if you ask the hotel directly, you can get it for AU$260 each night. I only got to read the hotel's email a day after I paid via agoda. I also prefer agoda since credit card information is safe via paypal. If you book directly with the hotel, you need to give them your credit card info.

I WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK AND REFER THIS HOTEL TO MY FRIENDS!

We stayed here for two nights and it is perfect for a family. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The added bonus of having a continental breakfast already in your room is great. The hotel is in great location as it is walking distance to all the CBD sights. The staff are very friendly and were only too happy to store our luggage after we checked out. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.

A great find. Well positioned within easy walking distance to the retail centre, and buses available to the Eastern Suburbs. Easy to reach anywhere really by public transport or keen walkers can explore right down to the Rocks. Also just across from Museum Station and the trip in from the airport on the train was trouble free. A lovely outlook across to the Park and very quiet, though we were on a higher floor.
Room was very comfortable, a queen bed and a single, kitchenette (we had a deluxe room) and a complimentary newspaper was a surprise. Included breakfast of packaged cereal, toast, juice and fruit provided in fridge was just right for us. Good coffee available over the road in the park. Polite and helpful staff. We were very happy and will return. Great Restaurant adjoins. Convenience, comfort spot on. Do your checkout on the early side to avoid the rush.

My family of 5 stayed recently at this Motel for 2 nights whilst in Sydney. Being a family of 5, it is often hard to find accommodation to suit us. The Hyde Park Inn ticked all the boxes. We had a family room which included a queen size bed, 2 single beds, plus a single sofa lounge. The bathroom was modern and clean, and it also had a mini kitchen. Continental breakfast was included in our room. This motel is situated across from Museum Train Station, also a short walk to a free bus which takes you around the city, and close to the Monorail.
I would have to say this motel is value for money, and we would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed here numerous times and will return. This hotel offers a view of Hyde Park and is in easy walking distance to the main attractions or bus and train rides if you are not a walker. We walk to Circular Quay , Darling Harbour and Darlinghurst from here and of course the city centre. As you have kitchen facilities it enables you to have more flexibility over eating decisions. Hotel is clean, staff are efficient. My only negative is that there is no wifi,

Considering the hotel is very central with a lovely outlook to the park this is good value for money. The rooms are clean and well serviced. The balcony was an added bonus. We chose to go out for brunch each day as the continental breakfast provided in the room is quite basic. The cafe just over the road at Hyde Park has great coffee! The people on reception were polite, friendly and helpful. We were able to check in early and also have a later check out. I would stay here again.

The Hyde Park Inn basically delivers everything it claims on its website. The rooms really do have excellent views over Hyde Park, ours was on level 12 and actually had views all the way to Sydney Harbour! One thing to note is that although there is a balcony, you might not want to spend much time out there, or with the door open to it because there's a lot of noise that comes from the road below.
The parking is also a big plus. We couldn't park in the Hotel's actual car park (it was already full) but there's a multi-story one block away which you can use for free if you stay here. This is actually a big deal because other hotels often charge up to $40 a day to park a car, and that price if often "single entry", i.e. you can't take your car out during the day without paying again! The parking here allowed us to leave as many times as we wanted which was very convenient.
The rooms themselves are ok, nothing to write home about but not bad for the price. The kitchen is useful, and well equipped with toaster, microwave etc. The bathroom was a bit of a let down, no bath and pretty small.
Overall, for the price and location this place is pretty good, probably hard to beat without paying a fair amount more money.
