“Enjoyed my stay - simple and comfortable”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

After reading all the reviews here I decided to book the Cambridge for my weeklong business trip in Sydney.
I purchased the wifi and breakfast package which is excellent value.
The room (a premium queen) was simple and small but quite clean - just some scuff marks on the walls. The bed was comfortable, television worked and had free to air as well as some cable channels. The bathroom was clean with a good sized mirror and great shower pressure.
The windows opened a little also which is important to me.
Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was basic but totally acceptable.
You can't beat this hotel for value for money. It's location is perfect if you want to be around the surry hills darling hurst area and super close to the city.
The key here is simplicity. It's not fancy but it totally ticks all the boxes. I was towards the back of the building so traffic noise a wasn't an issue.

The Cambridge Hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming on arrival. The lobby looked tired . The room where I stayed was clean and comfortable. I stayed in a room with friends then I stayed on for a few days by myself and I was upgraded to a deluxe room which was nice and comfortable. The breakfast we had I thought was pretty ordinary. The hotel was in a great location close to Hyde Park and Oxford Street and Crown Street where there were plenty of eating areas and only a 5 minute to 10 minute leisurely walk to Museum Station. A very interesting walk to Circular Quay and Opera House via Hyde Park. The staff made me feel welcome as a lone traveller. Lorraine at reception was very friendly and bubbly. A great person to have at a establishment like this a credit to her.

We stayed here with some friends. The rooms are to a high standard with lovely comfortable beds.
The location was great a short walk to Oxford St plenty of vintage shops and restaurants. Staff were very helpful. The only negative the carpark is narrow and you would have a problem if your car is lowered. Breakfast was great. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

Hi Gillian L,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your ‘weekend away’ at the Cambridge Hotel Sydney. It is a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed the high standard of our rooms, the location of the hotel, and the service you received throughout your stay.
I understand the narrow car park can be challenging, it is more suitable for smaller and medium-sized vehicles.

The Cambridge Hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming on arrival. The lobby had a warm, contemporary feel to it as soon as I walked in. The room where I stayed was immaculately clean and decorated in modern design. Everything was supplied in the room that I required. Breakfast was delicious with the choice of buffet or continental…it’s a great start to the day on the ground level café. Parking wasn't a problem and I left my car in the secure parking under the Cambridge Hotel for the entire weekend. Everything is in walking distance being in the heart of Sydney city. I had a fantastic weekend away all thanks to the Cambridge Hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter...otherwise be prepared to put up the the night time noise of pe...

Our room was spotlessly clean with a wonderful view, located close to central station and well know local shopping areas. The service we received was faultless and the staff were very professional and helpful. I will definitely be a return visitor!

We stayed for four nights and had a wonderful time. The room had a reasonable size, bathroom was very clean and the beds as well. The whole buildung must have been renewed recently and you could really feel it. The lobby is very nice and modern to look at, the staff super friendly. The only negative thing was the noise of trucks and cars in the morning after six. We'd come again!

Room Tip: Try to get a room higher up and away from Riley Street
