“Welcome improvements”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Have stayed at the HPI many times over the past 10 years due to it being good value (for Syd) and well located. Check in/out w as brisk but efficient. Recent room refurbs, especially the new beds and linens make a huge improvement.

Room Tip: Front rooms have pleasant outlook

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Though it is reasonably small it packs quite a punch. The rooms are well organized and include a small kitchenette and comfortable seating options. Each room has a small balcony looking over the park. Beds are very comfy.

The staff were not as helpful as you could expect, though efficient, hence the lower service rating. On-site parking is available but very limited, so get your reservation in early to ensure a space. Our booking was mis-handled and we missed out on a space which was originally offered and had to park off-site. After driving from Adelaide this was not what we needed.

Rooms were quite pricy but this Sydney and expected, but if you are an RSL member there could be a discount.

Hyde Park Inn has many positive features. We were impressed by the location of the hotel as it is directly across the road from Hyde Park. This meant we could easily access many locations including, the Opera House, CQ, the Botanical Gardens, Darling Harbour, Chinatown, Paddy's Markets. the main CBD etc. When we were there, the free 555 bus used to go right past the front door, though I think that only runs up George Street now. Our room provided us with a wonderful view over Hyde Park and beyond. We had a small, but adequate, kitchen and the daily breakfast offered was very welcome. The hotel is well situated for both rail and bus connections. This hotel is very reasonably priced for a Sydney CBD location. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The higher you go, the better the views and the less road noise.

The Hyde Park Inn has a great location just opposite Hyde Park so that all units have a view of the Park. The rooms have a full kitchen attached so self-catering is an option (although there arfe plenty of restaurants nearby - we enjoyed the Mazzaro on the ground floor of the same building although the resaurant in the Hellenic club next door is great and cheap.

This hotel is easy to get to by taking the metro from the airport to the museum station and a short walk to the hotel. It is centrally located to the city for most of the major attractions and shopping. The room had a kettle, sink, fridge, and microwave. Internet access was free for up to 1000 Mb across all connected devices. The views across Hyde Park from the room were stunning.

Breakfast was provided by delivery to the room and consisted of 2 slices of bread, fruit, cereals, orange juice.

The room did not have a minibar or safe.

Room Tip: Excellent views of park from the 15th floor.

Very reasonably priced, extremely well located with a more than adequate (very quiet) and comfortable room. Free parking and wifi make this a stand-out alternative to the bigger hotels in the city. A choice of local cafes and restaurants more than makes up for the absence of an in-house restaurant.
