Prior to our arrival we requested a room with a harborview and were delighted with our ninth floor view. We were treated to Saturday night fireworks. Our room was recently remodeled making it very comfortable. When I found the pillows a little flat they found fluffier ones for me. We had a slight problem with the shower door that was... More

A good value hotel in Potts Point. We paid a bit extra for Sydney Harbor and Bridge views. Good room and staff although WI FI on the 8th floor didn't work. A shuttle to the airport is available for $14 or catch the train if you prefer. The station is not far down the road. Plenty of Cafes and restaurants... More

If you want to be close to good cafes, the harbour and the city but not pay CBD prices, this hotel wins hands down. And don't forget to take in the 360 degree view from the rooftop! Walking distance to Kings Cross Station.

I booked this room on check out from my previous stay, this was witnessed by my colleague who has a corporate rate with the hotel. The staff were kind of apologetic but never took responsibility. They said try up the road, I was not successful up the road in getting a room. The staff did not make the effort to... More

Lots of pluses - well located in better part of Potts Point, close to wonderful restaurants like Billy Kwong, Macleay Street Bistro, Monopole, Yellow etc, , Woolworth's nearby BUT WiFi was a deal breaker, kept stopping and starting for my whole 2 day visit - this was enough to overcome any benefits. Views of harbour don't compensate for anyone on... More

The Macleay is good value for money - it's about 25 minute walk from Circular Quay, 10 minutes from King's Cross station, right next to Billy Kwong and countless other wonderful cafes and restaurants, a cozy bookstore and the Elizabeth Bay House less than 5 minutes away. The rooms are clean, some with great views of the Bay and Harbor,... More

Great for what we wanted - basic but clean and comfy beds, air con etc. In a fun location with lots of nice restaurants and cafes nearby. We walked back from the Opera House and it only took about thirty minutes through the botanical gardens. Reception staff were very helpful and efficient. We would recommend this to anyone for a...

The room and amenities were awesome, the staff was spectacular and the beds were ever so comfy! Across the street were a grocery store and a liquor store. We had 4 days between our Australian 2 week tour and our 2 week cruise around New Zealand. This was the ideal place to relax, do our laundry, walk the interesting streets... More

The Maclean Hotel was awesome. The front desk was very helpful. The area couldn't have been better, with an incredible breakfast place about two blocks away, with outdoor seating. The hotel is about a ten minute walk from the train station and about a ten minute train ride to the Harbor Bridge.
