“The perfect place to stay when visiting Sydney”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

I can only repeat the comments of the last few reviews. From the moment we walked into the hotel until the moment we left everything was perfect. Every member of staff was so helpful and friendly, it made our stay especially enjoyable. On arrival we upgraded to a club room on the 10th Floor which was great value. It entitled us to an outside view, breakfast, drinks and snacks all day and food and drinks, including wines from 5 to 8 every evening. The location was also superb, a 2 minute walk from circular key and the botanic gardens. The hotel is also next to Australia Square where we visited O the revolving restaurant on the 47th Floor. We would not stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Consider an upgrade to a Club room if available

I was very impressed with this hotel. It's in a fantastic location in a great building with lots of history and character.

The checkin staff could not have been more friendly and positive. Without asking I received a double upgrade which was most appreciated. I also enquired about where the nearest full size gym was located, not only was I shown exactly where there was a nearby Fitness First - but instantly two free day passes were provided. That's great service!

My room was fantastic, modern, comfortable with a great bed and high quality linens.

The internet is provided free of charge and was simple to set up - my only slight negative here was the signal in my room was quite weak.

The hotel does have a decent sized pool, big enough to do laps which is great given it's premium city centre location. There is also a small gym within the hotel which is fine for those wanting to do cardio.

Interactions with the staff throughout the building were positive - everyone is friendly, helpful without being overbearing.

Radisson Blu is my preferred hotel chain and this property is one of the best I've had the pleasure to visit.

Highly recommended.

Fantastic location to Circular Quay end of city-very short walk to ferries, Opera House and buses. Close to The Rocks. Very quietly tucked away from hustle and bustle. Staff very attentive and customer focused. Upgraded without asking. Everything very good except for cold water for shower on the last day. The a la carte dinner was average though the service was outstanding. However, the buffet breakfast was very nice with gluten free options. Very good all round.

Room Tip: Spa/pool area may have rated higher but work was being carried out so difficult to rate fairly. The...

Arrived here after 1 month on the road in New Zealand. Spent three relaxing days in Sydney in the superb, quiet and comfortable king suite. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The location was perfect for walking to everything and the dining experiences were local and very good. Good hotel to unwind, get renewed energy and sleep in air conditioned room in a very comfy bed. We would return in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for a total of 5 nights but were not offered the upgrade for a fee. Hmm! The staff was extremely helpful with luggage or directing you to nearby restaurants for lunch/dinner. Their breakfast was wonderful. The room was lovely, beds very comfortable and the hotel is near circular quay and many other attractions. Though it is a large hotel, the staff makes you feel like it is home for your time there. We would highly recommend this hotel to our friends.

When checking in we were upgraded. The room was big, the bed was comfy and the bathroom stylish and clean (loved that you could have a bath and open the shutters to watch tv!!)
The location of the hotel is great, very central to night life, restaurants, transport and tourist attractions.
The staff were also great. Front desk staff were lovely and very helpful as were the staff in the restaurant.
The buffet breakfast was also very good with a good selection.
I'd definitely stay here again.
Thank you.
