“Annual Conference”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Great location, Service is excellent! Could not fault the staff at all! Best of all, we were told it is going to be refurbished - wait till that happens! There will be a waiting list! Left our suitcases on checkout with the Concierge due to late flight out of Sydney while we checked out all the best tourist spots around Sydney. Concierge very happy to oblige.

Room Tip: Great room - no issues with outside light peering in at early hours either.

We arrived early in the morning and requested an early check in as opposed to having to wait till 2pm and they very happily gave us a room. The staff at reception were very well mannered as well as the porters and the door greeters. Everyone is always smiling which made our stay even more enjoyable. The rooms were spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. When I requested a pillow from the menu, I received it within 10 minutes. I cannot fault this hotel and would definitely stay here again. Also, they have now got free wi-fi which is a bonus.

we stayed at the Amora Jamison at the end of August 2013 for one night and could not have faulted anything. At check-in, we were advised that we could get a full breakfast the following morning for $10 each which is normally around $29 each. What a bargain! We had a lovely swim in the indoor heated pool, and also used the spa and stream room which was a great way to relax after a few hours driving. Facilities and room were spotless and the breakfast the next morning was plentiful and of great quality and quantity.
The bed was comfortable and we had a great view between buildings of Barangaroo and other glimpses of the harbour.
Would definitely come back here again and can recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Sydney.

Room Tip: we had a north facing room on the 28th floor and there was no noise from the street below

We have stayed at this hotel many times. It is comfortable, quiet and very convenient. It is located close to Wynyard Station so it's easy to catch a train from the airport and head straight to the hotel. There a small bar which is quiet, and ok for an evening drink. The breakfast is nothing special, so perhaps you could venture out somewhere else for breakfast which is always fun if you're on holiday, not so convenient if on business, but that is only a minor beef of mine. Overall I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Sydney than here.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking Wynyard Park.

My wife and I only needed a place to sleep in the city after a wedding and as we had no plans to spend anytime in the room apart from sleeping we figured that we would take our chances with a "mystery" deal through Wotif to save some money.
It was described a five star hotel in the centre of CBD and was only $225 so for our purposes it was a no-brainer.
We often have a weekend in the city staying at one of the better hotels but were unaware of Amora.
Location is perfect if you want to explore Sydney, a short walk to the the shopping precincts and also The Rocks.
Our check-in experience was exceptional. We had a very help friendly and helpful staff member who upgraded us to a corner room on the 33rd floor with harbour views and offered us a late checkout.
I wouldn't have expected any of this as a Wotif customer.
The room was more than adequate, spotlessly clean and furniture in good condition.
The bathroom was tastefully decorated with a freestanding bath and good quality toiletries.
Amora Hotel was a nice surprise and gets an "excellent" rating based on being great value for money.
We will staying there again this month.

Expecting a typical 5 star Sydney experience, this was very disappointing. The rooms are tired, and not very well layed out. The television is located in a cupboard perpendicular to the bed, so you have to lay on your side to watch it and its quite small - not what you'd expect in a 5 star hotel. The rate I paid included $5 extra for the buffet breakfast, but to be honest I wouldn't willingly pay $5 for the poor quality of food and service on offer. I was taken to my table, and when I returned from the buffet they had seated someone else at my table, so I had to go back to reception for them to find me another table. I ordered coffee that took so long that my breakfast was finished before it arrived. The coffee was too strong for me so I asked a passing waitress could she get me some hot milk to top up the coffee. It took over 10 mins. The only positive thing about the breakfast was that the orange juice tasted like real freshly squeezed juice. The upside of the hotel is its great location. The door men are very welcoming and friendly as are the reception staff. The hotel is quiet and the bathroom includes a nice deep bath as well as separate shower. Free internet.
