My husband and I stayed 6 nights in a Harbour view apartment which had a spectacular view. Our room had been recently refurbished and had all the amenities we needed. The kitchenette, with kettle, toaster, microwave, hot plate, knives, forks etc was an added bonus. The location is fantastic, with a but stop over the road, a station a ten...

Potts point is one of our favorite places to stay in Sydney, and we have lived there for five years previously and know the area well. We have stayed in many of the Points Point hotels and this by far was the most expensive and disappointing, It is in a great location, and walking distance to Darlinghurst, Woolloomooloo, the botanical...

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...

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...

Pros: Great view of the harbor (we had a harbor view room); location is quite convenient to public transportation; lots of food options in the neighborhood; supermarket across the street is a great thing to have; bathroom is updated and quite nice; kitchenette was very useful Cons: Room was rather dated; parts of bathroom not properly cleaned when we first...

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...

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...

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,...
