“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The hotel's location is its strongest point. It is next door to Wynyard train station, within walking distance to the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. It is 2 streets away running parallel to George Street. We walked our way down along George Street, popped into the Queen Victoria Building, walked further along to World Square and the China Town.
I was given to understand this hotel had a makeover some years ago. So the room interior looks quite nice and the bed comfortable, but the carpet inside my room is rather stained and dirty.
The hotels does not provide free WIFI, not even in the lobby area. The in-room WIFI is A$20 per day and the internet corner in the lobby takes A$2.00 for a 15 min session.
We had an offer price of about A$105 a night, which was cheap compared to many other hotels in the city. For the same rate I would stay again.

The Travelodge Wynyard in Sydney is a great place to stay based on location, quality and value. The reception staff are courteous and efficient and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is terrific. The train from the airport to Wynyard is convenient and the hotel is about a 50 metre walk. It is central to the key areas to visit in Sydney; Circular Quay, the Bridge and Opera House, the Rocks, Darling Harbour and Pitt St Mall all about a 10 minute walk. Hyde Park and the Gallery are about 20 minutes, but relatively convenient. The hotel restaurant serves good quality and value meals. We always stay there when we visit Sydney (will be back twice more this year!).

Room Tip: Rooms facing York St are best.

My son and his dear friend Andre wanted to visit Luna Park and the Power house museum on their school holidays. I wanted to stay in the city without having to pay an arm and a leg, so we called Travelodge in Wynyard. What a lovely spot. and it cost us $129 for a night and $229 for another. Apparently their rates change every day. A bit like the share market. We drove straight from Luna park, parked the car and took public transport to everywhere we want to go.

The hotel is just a block away from George St, we hop on the bus to Central station and walk down the road to power house museum. We could also take the train. Staff are friendly. Parking is very tight, cost $30 a day/night. We had a lovely room service - food was ok without being excellent. But this is Sydney, why would you want to eat at Travelodge when the best and the nicest and freshest is at your door step. Alas I had two very tired children so it was room service for one night, and another night dinner at a dear friend's house. The room service was prompt and the food standard was OK.

The room was clean and comfortable, it was facing the York st, a bit noisy at night but bearable. The view is of a lovely old building with a new extension on the top. made we wish I have a bit more money to... own a nice city apartment. Alas, at the moment Travel lodge is it!!
The bed was comfortable, the pillow soft, the TV was working fine and the mini bar price list is realistic.

There are many many lovely little cafes around this hotels, the city ambiance is just excellent. Will come to stay again!

Stayed at this hotel for 18 nights in September 2012 and must say I had a very enjoyable stay there.
From the moment we arrived the reception staff were more than helpful passing on lots of useful information and always had a smile when we entered the hotel. The room was spacious enough for what we needed and was kept nice and clean by the Housekeeping team,
not planning a return to Sydney for quite some time but if I do I would definitely book this hotel again as it was within easy reach of Darling Harbour with all its Bars and shopping facilities and also Circular quay and the Opera house were it was nice to sit, relax and watch the world go by.
The only grumble we had with the hotel was that the cleaners could be a little bit noisy in the morning other than that a very enjoyable stay.

We found this hotel when searching for cheap accommodations in Sydney (NOT EASY!)
We were pleasantly surprise to find that it was a very good 5 days stay :) The location was perfect, right beside Wynyard station. The bed was very comfortable and the room and toilet clean. Our room was located at the 7th storey, it was a little noisy if you open the window but we weren't bothered by the traffic noise once the windows were closed.

Note that instead of a double bed, it was two single beds joined together and that internet is not free but coin operated and it was super slow.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms at a higher floor so as to avoid traffic noise.

Very small room, old and just clean. Nothing extra provided. Breakfast buffet is very ordinary and way over-priced for the below average food on offer. Great location in the city centre, only reason I stayed there. Think I'd spend a bit more for a nicer place next time.

Room Tip: No good views from this hotel and noise comes straight in!

Dear Taniaf76,

Thank you for sharing your feedback.

I'm disappointed that you didn't thoroughly enjoy tour stay with us and especially our breakfast where we usually achieve great guest satisfaction. If purchasing your breakfast voucher the night before you can save 20% and the cost comes down to $20 for a full buffet breakfast.

Please contact me directly if you would like to discuss any of these matters further.

We stayed here late September 2012 as we were looking for a one night stay before we cruised out of Sydney. If you are cruising on one of the ships out of Sydney, this is definitely value for money for a room close to everything. We caught the train from the airport to Wynyard station and were so suprised to find the hotel about 70 metres from the train station entrance. Check in was very quick, our room was clean and the beds comfortable. There was a little noise from traffic out in the street, but not enough to really bother us at all. The rooms were not huge but who cares if you are only there to sleep. We walked to Darling harbour for dinner and the Barangaroo wharf 5 to see where the ship would sail from and earlier walked from Circular Quay back to the motel in no time at all with our two children in tow!! There is a Coles across the road (in the underground trainstation where we bought small cereal packets and orange juice for our childrens breakfast)The staff were so nice and helpful and went out into the street to hail a taxi for us.Taxi fare was only 8.50 in a station wagon to the wharf for 4 of us with suitcases. Overall, a clean, comfortable hotel with a GREAT LOCATION. Will definately stay there again if cruising out of Sydney. Thanks Travelodge for a comfortable and hassle free stay.
