My girlfriend booked this hotel as it was supposed to be affiliated with the Rydges group so we thought it would be ok.Unfortunetly it was very lacking in amenities. Our single room consisted of two beds a hall table for the tv and a small cupboard were there wasn;t enough room to hang clothes for two. No drawers only one... More

Thanks for staying with us. I am glad to hear you have enjoyed breakfast and our friendliness. Capitol Square is conveniently placed close to all major attractions in Sydney.

This was our first visit to Sydney as we have always went to Brisbane, however Sydney is more akin to a larger city like London and we were looking for a reasonable priced hotel. I dont think there is such a thing as a cheap hotel in Oz however we found the hotel basic which we expected. The hotel has... More

I have stayed a number of times at this hotel when under the auspices of Rydges. Now that they have pulled out of management the hotel quality has obviously declined significantly. The maintenance of the rooms is basic at best. I was grateful to obtain a quite side room looking East on the 4th floor. ( I declined a 2nd... More

Our first and last time here - it is very 'tired'. Peeling paint, no sound proofing, an old bed and very worn carpet! Location is great, the staff were okay and the a/c works. It was a Rydges, but has gone downhill. Our room was OK in size. Unless it's very cheap, stay somewhere else...

Nothing about this hotel was appealing. The entrance and rooms were nothing like the photos posted on the website. I took a family member to Sydney to celebrate her 70th birthday and was totally embarrassed to think I chose such terrible accommodation. The room with single beds was very small, the carpet dirty and very worn. The bedspread had stains... More

Unless you secure this hotel for a great price, I'd suggest you keep looking. Whilst it is in a great location - right in China town, 2 mins walk to Paddy's market, not far from Darling Harbour, this isn't a very pleasant looking part of town. so don't expect scenic here. We stayed for one Saturday night and for our... More

We got a really good deal for this hotel - $99 per night including breakfast and late check out. It was OK for the couple of nights we stayed there; the room could not be faulted in terms of cleanliness but a few minor changes could really lift this hotel. We had a double room and you literally could not... More

You get what you pay for & although prices fluctuate average is the best description interestingly it is run by the Rydges group who run a seniors club where cinema discounts apply to their cinemas and free breakfast to members staying at their hotels, unfortunately the receptionist was unaware of this so it was not honoured. Maybe it onlyapplies to... More

Thank you for your valued opinion and feedback. Capitol Square Hotel, not being a Rydges branded hotel, currently does not take part in the Senior Club promotions.
