“Great little boutique hotel.”
Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

I needed to come to Sydney at the last minute and booked this off one of those multi hotel web sites. To be honest I wasn't hopeful of a good result or at best perhaps being stuck in a 'bad' room - how wrong was I.

This little motel is situated right in the heart of the CBD and luckily has a large sign for visitors to head for as the actual entrance is quite small and could be hard to spot. The foyer is small with a nice little coffee bar and the front desk staff are great! -attentive, happy and so obliging. They display a really polite sense of casualness which is so refreshing when compared to the stuffy attitude displayed by some '5 star' hotels. No matter how often you walk through the foyer you are always greeted with a smile and genuine greeting - very refreshing.
Our room was clean and well presented, with one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in for quite a while. The air conditioner worked well and the room was quite even though you are right in the heart of the city.
One great feature is free unlimited Internet - a great little feature and such a refreshing change from the $30 + a day other hotels charge - they could take a tip from this little motel.
All in all a really enjoyable stay at a funky, fun little hotel - I'm looking forward to coming back!

Park8 Hotel was the perfect place for our family break in Sydney. The staff were simply wonderful! They were extremely friendly,helpful and patient with my two young kids. They gladly assisted with everything from our luggage, to parking, planning our outings and even making us breakfast in the little nook cafe downstiars! Located in the heart of the CBD Park8 was the ultimate location with all the shops of Pitt St Mall and Westfield around the corned, Hyde Park almost across the road and short work to Darling Harbour. We will definately be back at Park8 Hotel for our next visit to Sydney.

Room Tip: Two bedroom loft style apartment was excellent for families.

Very friendly and good service. Room was clean and stayed that way throughout our stay. The location is perfect for a first time in Sydney. everything from the opera house to darling hurst is within walking distance. Has a nice place on the left corner to have lunch or breakfast and all your shopping needs are super close by. All in all a good stay!

This hotel is conveniently locate in sydney's central business district. Within a 10 minute walk are the high end stores (Prada, Gucci, Tiffanys, etc), sites such as the Sydney Eye, and also Darling Harbor. We stayed for only one night but saw all three shifts of staff and they were all very friendly and helpful. We arrived early in the morning and the staff graciously held our luggage for us, provided a useful map, and answered any questions we had. When we returned to our room late that day the staff had brought our luggage up and it was waiting for us in the room. The room was clean though there was no view.

Dear Robert S,

It was a pleasure to host you at Park8 Hotel and we greatly appreciate your lovely review.

Next time you visit, if you would like to try a room with a view, please contact us directly so that we can provide the best rates on either our Deluxe Room or unique 1 Bedroom Loft Apartments. The Deluxe rooms all have unfrosted windows which you can open for fresh air, and allow street views (fun for people watching in the Sydney CBD!). The 1 Bedroom Lofts all split-level apartments, and have floor-to-ceiling windows allowing great city views and sunlight. Our Standard rooms are the only room types which have the frosted windows to ensure privacy (as they are near to an adjacent building), although they are very clean, comfortable king bed rooms and especially ideal for single travellers or shorter stays.

We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your journey after you left us and look forward to welcoming back when you are next in Sydney!

With warmest regards,

The Park8 Team

This is a long overdue review. My friend and I stayed in a deluxe room for 5 nights at the end of July 2013. From the minute we checked in we were very impressed. The staff were incredibly efficient and friendly, nothing was too much trouble, and they helped us with maps, directions, etc

The room was spacious, we had plenty of luggage after our month long holiday but we didn't feel crowded.

The location of the hotel was the best part for us. We walked everywhere and had no need to take a taxi at any stage. It is less than 5 mins to the main shopping area and we loved that we could potter over and back to the shops at our leisure. We walked to the Sydney Harbour and Darling Harbour areas every night for food and entertainment (about 15-20 mins walk).

At the end of our stay the reception staff organised a private bus to collect us at the door and take us to the airport. They held on to our bags for the day until the taxi collected us that evening for our night flight. There was also no issue whatsoever with extending our check out that morning so that we could have some extra time to pack up and prepare for our last day in Sydney.

Well Done and thank you to everyone at Park8!

Room Tip: Didn't see other rooms but the deluxe double room was very spacious.

We definitely do have the best spot in town and consider ourselves really lucky. So many of the Sydney sights are within walking distance, and for everything that is a little further, we have every public transport option right at our doorstep. It is wonderful to read that you made the most of the location!

Please do not hesitate to contact our 24/7 reception desk when you'd next like to visit so that we can ensure you are extended the best possible rate.

Good luck for the new year and we hope to see you again soon!
