“1st class city boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights during our Aussie trip.

We upgraded to have access to the business lounge which gives you snacks and soft drinks during the day and a great breakfast in the morning plus cocktails and canapes for a couple of hours in the evenings. We had already booked a deluxe room so there was no need to upgrade this. The rooms and hotel is very modern in decor and easy on the eye. Our deluxe room was spacious and had an excellent bathroom also.

All the staff we dealt with where very helpful, particularly the business lounge staff.

It is a great location for getting around the city. Only about 5 mins walk to Circular Quay but far enough away to be away from the noise at night.

We didn't use the bar downstairs or leisure facilities so I can't comment on these.

Would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Pay for access to business lounge

We just stayed 2 nights at Radisson Blu. We had a very good rate & our first floor room might ?have been less inspiring than others, but it was clean & well equipped, pillow menu allowed for delivery of feather & down pillows. The service was generally great & friendly, exception being that our room wasn't made when we returned to the hotel 3pm. Very convenient for us, walking distance to Rocks, Art Gallery NSW, Circular Quay & QV.

Great location near circular key and the rocks. It's quite expensive but you get what you pay for. We had an excellent Wagyu beef steak in the hotel restaurant. Friendly service offered by all the staff we encountered. Great breakfast on offer.

I thought the staff were very friendly and always greeted you anywhere in the hotel. The hotel was clean and very well maintained, the room and bed were very comfortable. The location is excellent with in close proximity to key businesses, and restaurants and bars. The westfields shopping complex is only a short walk away. You can walk down to circular quay in 5 mins to be next to the Opera House and great views of the Harbour Bridge.

We recently stayed at this hotel and enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful, especially Wayne, who was always a pleasure to see in the lobby/reception area, with his smiling, helpful ways. He, along with the rest of the staff are a credit to the hotel and I hope that our remarks and thanks will be passed on to them. We had heard good reports of this hotel beforehand and was not disappointed. It is ideally located in Sydney.

We spent five nights at the Radisson in January. We stayed in a room overlooking O’Connell Street and I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. We required two double beds for the three of us (mother and daughters on holiday) and the room had more than enough space for three people, three suitcases and all the extras girls travel with. Excellent location, within walking distance to circular quay, darling harbour, shopping, restaurants and the train. Staff were wonderful, with one the door attendants seeing assistance was needed at concierge and he came over and helped out! Saved us from standing in line for a prolonged period. Wish I could remember his name, he was extremely helpful and friendly. Definitely a hotel I would chose to stay at again next time we are in Sydney.

We got a really good deal and would choose to stay here each time, although the price ends up making that decision for us. The hotel restaurant is lovely and I would eat there even if not staying at the hotel. Location is very central and the staff are attentive at the right times. Free wi-fi is also a big plus.
