The Vulcan is a nice Hotel with a good price-performance ratio. The Hotel is located near the University of Technology and Chinatown. Our room was clean and the stuff was friendly. The bathroom was ok, maybe a little old but still fine for the paid price.

We stayed for a long weekend in 2 rooms, situated on their own floor, in a quirky attic type space. Rooms were huge and facilities all you could want. Could get breakfast at a good price, but only from 7am weekdays/8am weekends...a bit late for me. We were able to walk to Darling Harbour, and Glebe Rd (the point of...

Would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in a great hotel in Sydney! We had a large room, with a little kitchen area. It was clean and tidy. The only problem was the shower wasn't great. The head seemed to be broken. Other than that...Excellent. Conveniently located near the train station. Some wonderful little cafes around the...

We stayed at The Vulcan for 3 nights. It's close to Central, about 15 minute walk and close to the city. The bed is really comfortable and it's nice and quiet. The breakfasts are delicious and reasonably priced. It's lovely to go down to their onsite cafe and have a great coffee and be served breakfast...no buffets! The staff are...

I stayed for four nights for a conference. The room was perfect for me, small but comfortable, with everything I needed. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. Despite my room being on a main road the room had been well sound-insulated with double layered windows, but it was nice to still be able to open the windows...

The staff were pleasant and helpful on arrival. I found it a little difficult to get to sleep due to the flashing green of the wifi (I think that's what it was). There was no iron or ironing board in the room and the communal one in the corridor was not available for at least an hour when I wanted...

I had a lovely stay at your hotel. The room was clean and comfortable (and although it is small it was perfect for me), the décor of the hotel is gorgeous, it was close to where I was working but the most valuable aspect of your hotel is your staff, every person at the desk or in the dining room...

Not impressed. Again, this was a place to stay without spending too much money, nothing more. There is a dining room that serves some type of breakfast and it may be good, but I had to leave for the airport before I could try it. The room was small but clean. I asked for a wakeup call at 6:30 a.m....
