“Around the corner from Circular Quay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

This hotel is 'hidden' around the corner from Circular Quay and it is in many ways a better spot. The hotels bar looks out over the water and is more peaceful spot than all the tourists you find in Circular Quay. The building is in an old wharf and has lots of character. Quirks that I dont like are the banging and crashing pipes and plumbing you hear randomly during the night - assuming its the old pipes etc?? Secure parking is a loose phrase considering my car sat out on the street for 2 nights with a sticker on the window. I would call that secure - the final night it sat in a fenced area out in the elements so on check out it was returned covered in bird crap. Great spot though all things considered and would definately go back but would drive there :)

We stayed here for 3 nights in January 2013. The rooms are a good size, including the bathroom. Very impressive! Our room had a great view of the Harbour and the "finger wharfs". The staff were friendly. There is a bag room to leave your bags if there is a lot of time between check out and your flight.

Stayed here just as the Accor group had taken over, we choose this hotel due to the location as I had International Guests who had not been to Sydney before. The room rate was quite good considering this is Sydney CBD and on the Harbour. On arrival discovered our floor was being renovated however no notice of this on the booking aside from the painters in the hall all was good. Rooms have some great features like the exposed beams of the old wharf. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was great and the best thing is you can sit outside right next to the water. Apart from some small teething issues which I believe was due to change of ownership I would recommend this hotel for people looking for something on the Harbour.

We stayed here for a night. The room was very spacious and well appointed with lots of room to move, and good toiletries. Stylish fittings and very comfortable bed.

There was a function downstairs and the noise kept us awake until about 11 pm (Thursday night - work the next day).

Breakfast was fine. But nothing particularly special by good hotel standards. They should take a leaf from the book at Sebel Adelaide. Best hotel breakfast everrr.

All in all a great choice for us as we were going to the theatre up the road in Walsh Bay and wanted to walk home. Mission accomplished.

I live about an hour or 2 (pendeing traffic) from Sydney so when I visit Sydney which would be 4-6 times a year I stay at Sebel Pier one, I have stayed in other hotels around the city but none compare for quality, location & price. I have also been to two different weddings here & both were excellent, I highly reccommed Sebel Pier One if your staying in Sydney I personally won't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: I havn't used the pool or spa here so my rating on them is based on my stay in the rest of the h...

Recently stayed at this hotel with three girl friends for a girls night out in the city. We were all very impressed with the hotel.The hotel was in a great location, great views, great breakfasts and great value. We all agreed that we have not encountered more friendly staff at any other hotel anywhere. Every staff member from the House Keeping staff to the Valet who took care of our car was friendly and courteous and we would all gladly return here and recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

Room Tip: Great water views from west side of the building.
