My family and I stayed at the Hyde Park Inn from 10 December to 13 December 2010.
I spent ages trying to look for a hotel in the Sydney CBD which not only catered for large families but was also friendly on the pocket. After an extensive internet search and with the help of Trip Advisor, we settled on the Hyde Park Inn. I have a family of 5 and we stayed in a Family Deluxe room on the 9th floor which consisted of a queen bed and 3 singles. Our balcony looked over looked the beautiful Hyde Park. The room contained a kitchenette, bathroom and all the usual mod cons. Just be aware though that all the beds are located in the one room so if you want your privacy, you would be better off booking a family suite. A continental breakfast is supplied in your room free of charge each day. The cost per night was great @ $242 for the 5 of us which was by far the cheapest I could find, especially for a 4 star hotel in the heart of Sydney. A few tips......
We flew in from Melbourne and caught the train from the Airport to Museum Station which is located across the road from the Hotel....This was expensive! It costs $20 per adult & $10 per child, a total of $70 for my family. We ended up booking a private maxi cab through the hotel on return to the Airport and it only cost us $50. Apart from the Airport train, I must say that Sydney has a great public transport system. Buses arrive/depart frequently every 3 -5 minutes. The bus stops are located on either side of the road and close to the Hotel. The 555 bus is free which takes you around the CBD to Sydney Harbour and the ferry service. The mono rail is within easy walking distance to the Hotel with the World Square stop only a 2 minute walk.
Darling Harbour is a comfortable 10 - 15 minute walk or you can go by mono rail. A good food court which is relatively cheap is located there.
China Town is a 10 minute walk.
Paddy's Market a 15 minute walk and you can also take the mono rail there.
Sydney Harbour a 20 - 25 minute walk. I suggest a bus if you want to give walking a miss or catch the ferry from Darling Harbour.
Well you're pretty much right in the city centre. Try the World Square, Westfield Shopping Centre (which is a bit more upmarket that the Melbourne stores), plus the many malls.
Overall, my family thoroughly enjoyed the Hyde Park Inn and the Sydney experience. We would return again to this Hotel because of the cost and great location.
