Staff were lovely. Room was clean. Shared bathroom was clean. Water pressure great. The room was cold. But nothing an extra blanket couldn't fix. Loud early mornings, but it's in the heart of the city, so what do you expect. The shared kitchen, had everything you needed. Complimentary tea, coffee, milk and breakfast consisted of toast with spreads and also... More

I needed a room in the city to sleep for about 5 hours before getting a 6am flight. Cost was the number one priority, as I would shower when I arrived in the other city. Nothing cheaper available - so it did the trick. If you want more than just a bed and you can't handle a shared bathroom, then... More

It's one of those alert places you see in hotel commercials about where not to stay. It shouldn't be called a hotel nor a motel, at best it's a very bad version of a hostal. Its on top of a loud bar that's open till 1am. The window in the room doesn't have a screen. Men and women share the... More

Good location for the harbour district and Wynyard Station; . Small but atmospheric bar. Very basic room with comfy bed and clean, good quality sheets. Neither TV nor bed side light worked. Luckily it was a cool night as the ceiling fan went off with the main light.Good shower in the "shared bathroom" but tiling badly in need of repair.... More

The room was absolutely terrible, the TV did not work, there was no airconditioning, the electronic room key did not work and when we booked, in we were requested to pay $20 for the room key - I DID NOT, in any event it did not work. The share bathroom was disgusting, there was cracks on the floors and leaks... More

Came across this jewel of a hotel bar while walking around Sydney. A pint of White Rabbit Pale Ale really hit the spot at only $5 AUS. Nice bar. Friendly and helpful staff. Corner of Erskine St and Clarence St. Absolutely would recommend to friends! Coming here again tomorrow night and the night after that!

right in the heart of Sydney, 5 mins walk to the rocks and the opera house. Very friendly staff. Has a small rooftop to have a few take away beers before you head out for the night. Rooms could do with a paint, pillows if you could call them that could be replaced. showers and toilets of pub quality. Bed... More

Normally I would have simply written this up as a pub, however since I ended up staying renting out one of the rooms they have available – my first ever experience of staying in a pub – I felt it necessary to write it up a little differently. Mind you I would hardly call this place luxurious, and a swift... More

My friend and I came to Sydney to see a show. We booked this place because of it's price and location. It was ideal; close to the Wynyard bus and train stations. Yes it was a tiny room. But it was clean and had 2 good single beds with pristine linen, and a tv and fridge. Yes, the bathroom was... 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.
