Located well to the business end of town, this is an older, self contained apartment complex that ticks all the basic boxes. The kitchen is well appointed (albeit, no dishwasher); the living area is roomy (with doors that open) and the bedroom, on a mezzanine level with the bathroom, is comfortable. The place is dated but for around $200 a... More

Serves its purpose but only average accommodation, tired apartment building in a good location. Maybe worth paying a little extra for something a little more up market. Living area downstairs with bedroom and toilet upstairs. Had a room overlooking Darling Harbour but it was very noisy.

Apartment on the 5th floor - very little traffic noise and clean & tidy - verticals a bit grotty but otherwise all facilites up to standard. Loved the space and plenty of exercise up & down the stairs to the loft bedroom & bathroom. Helpful staff makes a big difference.

We arrived early but our room was ready - always a plus! The staff were efficient and the room was clean. The mezzanine bedroom was comfortable although the sofa bed less so and the blankets provided for this were old and a bit "hard". We loved the space and the kitchen area worked well.

Stayed in a loft apartment on the first floor, the apartment was quite old and somewhat dated compared to the photos online, large amount of steps to enter the main entrance. Huge traffic noise on the 1st floor overlooking Sussex st.

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.
