These self serviced apartments have clearly not been renovated or upgraded for some decades but they are clean and well located. Amenities are basic and the apartments quite small but more than adequate for an overnight stay. Although others have complained about the street traffic, I really didn't find this to be an issue, although I was on the 7th... More

Thank you Ksquared2014 for you review of our metro apartments on King st. These apartments are close to Harling Harbour and most of Sydney’s attractions. Being so close to Darling Harbour does mean that because of the hill the property does have stairs to gain access. Our staff are always willing to help guests with prams and bags or any... More

Pros Good location, close to shops and sightseeing places such as Darling Harbour, Chinatown, and Circular Quay. The apartment has its own kitchen and laundry; and bed is made and towels are changed everyday. Cons Street noise can be heard. The place requires net curtains so that when drapes are drawn it does not leave the interior of the apartment... More

Ok so it's a bit old and tired but value and location make up for it. It's clean and the kitchens are well appointed. Good choice for a family. Definitely adequate. Noisy at night though traffic and partying nearby. Walk to just about everything.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
