I made a booking to stay at The Grand Hotel for one night and would suggest no one ever comes here - it's not worth the hassle. When I arrived that night before final check in time of 10pm the building was dark and locked, and a note on the door directed me to call someone to let me in...

We've stayed here on two occasions because it's cheap, central, easy to walk everywhere we wanted to go, including the Opera House and the Art Gallery of NSW. We save money and are happy to share facilities, but perhaps it's easier in winter than summer as there is no air conditioning. Lift is useable but would be tricky for some,...

Blanket is very dirty. I have some photos and I will try to upload them. I promise you if you book this place you...

The staff was super! Maria, one of the managers, made sure we were taken care of even though I booked rooms that were too small for the party I was traveling with. The bartender, Laura was amazing and super helpful for not only things to do, but what beers to try. The hotel is not a five star resort, but...

Clean and tidy, free breakky for stayers, fruit, toast tea, cereal etc. Lift is dangerous, no good for elderly people. No aircon in room, which is the only reason we would not stay in warmer months again. Staff were marvellous to us as hubby was very ill the night we stayed. 2 mins walk to Wynyard Station. Phone calls to...

This is a case of you get what you pay for, so please don't expect a review based on $400 per night. This review is based on the expectation of the $105 per night I paid. To check in go the the friendly bar staff who will point you in the right direction. Fill out the check in form and...

This review is just for the bar area. Very small bar; 4 tiny tables and about 8 seats at the bar. Seats are all bar height with no back support. No air conditioning. It has a lovely historic feel and a limited food menu.

A friend booked us into this place for over the new year period as it was a good price in comparison to other places. I have to admit that reading the reviews before we got there that we were very worried as to what we would find. The rooms are very basic and old but we didn't see any dust...

No aircon, filthy bathrooms and breakfast is basic. For the same or less money you can stay at the y hotel at Hyde park, where they at least clean the bathroom and rooms properly. You'll get a hot breakfast at the Y hotel too. Only positive for the Grand is the location. Everything else is sub par. Bring your ear...

Firstly I would like to say that having to check in at a bar while you have children with you is simply unacceptable. Usually I don't take the time to write reviews but this place was so bad i decided to warn people!!! After the very slow check in process during which my kids had to wait in a corridor...

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.
