“A quite corner in the middle of the city.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

It's our firsts time at the Amora but I have heard good things so I decided to take a punt and was pleasantly surprised. It is on a quite street next to Wynyard station. Very convenient to the rocks and shopping on pitt street.

we were here to celebrate my hubby's 40th birthday weekend and Amora did not disappoint. It had a beautiful foyer. The room was bigger than I expected and had some kind of view. it was still facing buildings but had water views in the corner. which was ok since we were not in our room to stare at the view.

I thought the BIGGEST plus which all hotels in Sydney should learn a lesson from was the free Wifi! Thank you amora that was the cherry on top.

We will be back and we will be recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: if you can try to get a corner high rooms for better views.

Stayed for business. Great bathrooms including a deep long bath, so essential for weary travellers. Good spacious rooms.Free wiFi fantastic!
We had a mix-up between a discounted booking and an additional night booked on check-in. Staff politely and efficiently dealt with the problem quickly and to our complete satisfaction.
The location is fantastic; it is located right on the suburban railway station, (direct from airport too.) It is an easy walk to Great restaurants, The Rocks, Circular Quay, Queen Victoria building and CBD shopping.
We book this hotel frequently. In recent months we needed to stay at a rival international hotel which was great, but nowhere near as roomy as Amora and way more expensive for the same standard.

Room Tip: The corner suites are great. The one we have stayed in had glimpses of harbour bridge and the city s...

My husband I have just come back from an overnight in Sydney and stayed at the beautiful Amora Jamison. What can I say but it was just perfect in every way. From the moment we arrived we were impressed, from the beautiful decor to the the staff who were just so helpful. Stored our luggage as the room was not ready, no problem, they rang us when the room was ready and when we got there our luggage was bought to our room, which I msut say was just amazing. Room 2209 with the most amazing bathroom with views to die for. The bed was amazingly comfortable, great nights sleep. Visited the gorgeous pool which was a seren finish to our busy day. We had breakfast the next morning and walked through a lovely bar which unfortunately due our schedule we did not visit, but we will next time, looked lovely. Breakfast had everything you could ask for and more, even a juice for you to prepare your own freshly squeezed juice. Service at breakfast was fantastic, every detail taken care of. I work in a Resort on the Gold Coast so I consider myself a pretty hard judge when it comes to service provided when I holiday myself, but well done Amora Jamison. We will be back when we next stay in Sydney. Thank you everyone. Don't go anywhere else in Sydney, this hotel is the best.

My husband & I have been to this hotel several times, and love it. Very easy to get around the city and the harbour. I asked for a quiet room, and ours was on the 17th floor and was very quiet. The room was away from the lift tucked away in a corner. The cost of the hotel is the only reason we don't use it more often. This time we were lucky to score the hotel with a Wotif Mystery deal at a reasonable price.Room was large, with two King size singles. Mattress would be better if a little harder. Bathroom very spacious and fitted out lovely. The large bath was right under the window in the sun. If we'd had time would have used it !!!

Room Tip: Always ask for a higher floor, away from the lift.

I loved staying at the Amora Sydney, it was the perfect place to walk to the Sydney waterfront. The room was gorgeous and housekeeping fantastic, everything was perfectly made up. I loved the big bathroom and had an amazing bath while here.

Staff were wonderful and friendly and were happy to help me arrange transport to the airport, which is super convenient as the underground train station is literally meters from the door, so this is a perfect place to stay if you have a night over in Sydney and would like to see some of the city.

My only comment is that the gym was a little lacklustre. Newer, better serviced weight machines and maybe a wider selection, like some dumbbells, would have been a better fit with the excellent quality of the hotel.

The biggest downfall was the level of service at the desk.
Requested a room that was quiet and I think this got completely ignored. They are very good at ignoring you. I got to enjoy the sound of wonderful Sydney traffic, particularly in the mornings. On the final morning there was some kind of high pitch sound coming from the air vents like a criquet on steroids which kind of destroyed anything positive I was taking away with me. What was good was the size of the room - it was a corner suite with ok views including into the office buildings only metres away. I'm guessing if I can see them they can see me so I should probably apologise for the view they got that day. The bathroom was awesome - very good size with a deep tub that can fit me which is quite rare.
A nice place in a good location but it doesn't stand out. I will be trying somewhere else next visit to Sydney.

Spacious rooms with larger than average bathrooms - with a deep freestanding bath. The free WiFi is a real bonus. The staff are excellent. The location of the hotel is great - only a short walk to almost anywhere. Very easy to get a cab is needed the staff are more than happy to arrange this for you.
