Fantastic view from the room. Room was very nice also. Location was perfect and staff was very helpful. There was a wonderful fireplace in the lobby giving it an extra special feel this time of year. Highly recommend this little gem - close to the opera house and ferries.

Simply the most wonderful service in elegant surroundings. The atmosphere takes me back many years. The service was second to none. The amenities beautiful & more than adequate. Loved the old world furniture & fittings, modern is fine but this was really special.

1. Great location; 2. Friendly staff; 3. Very spacious rooms; 4. Bad sound proof. You can hear talks next door like there is no wall. 5. Lift a bit scary. 6. Staff need to be more conscientious. When I moved from one room to another just next door, I forgot my iPad in the previous room. During my two more... More

The Sir Stamford was a really neat hotel, with tons of unique character. If you're looking for sleek and modern, and big chain consistency, this isn't the hotel. However, if you're looking for boutique, old world charm, historically accurate rooms, and lots of character, this is definitely the place. Our room, with two comfortable twin beds, had a slither of... More

I've stayed here a number of times because of the location and olde worlde charm of the place. Not cheap but when you factor in the size of the rooms compared to some hotel shoe boxes, and not forgetting the undoubted quality, then it would compare favourably and more so if the price is right, which in my case was...

Old world charm is not really my preference but I booked last minute. The rooms are quite dark but clean & well appointed. The staff are very helpful & welcoming in all areas of the hotel. The central location to circular quay & restaurants is very convenient & give you the opportunity to visit the botanical gardens directly across the... More

We stayed here for three nights as part of our honeymoon. Having stayed (and been married) at the Stamford Plaza in Brisbane at the start of August we had pretty high expectations. Our room was a great size, comfy bed although the bathroom was a bit tired and needs some work. The mini bar fridge was seriously loud at night... More

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.
