“Great Upstairs Restaurant”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

My girlfriend stumbled upon the upstairs restaurant at Hotel Coronation on a previous visit to Sydney, so when we met up on my visit to Sydney this is where she wanted to go, and I can totally see why she wanted to go back to the upstairs restaurant in Hotel Coronation. The tables have beautifully laundered white fabric tablecloths, and the meal we had was really enjoyable, and great value for money. We had a very energetic waitress, and we couldn't fault the service we received. Highly recommended!

My mom and I stayed here for 2 nights. We were a bit shocked at the location - smack dab in the middle of the city - having come from the quiet, serene beaches of north Queensland, but immediately warmed up to the place. The rooms are small but impeccably clean. I requested a quiet room and I can vouch that room #404 IS quiet. The only bummer is the elevator was broken while we were there, and after reading some of the reviews on TripAdvisor before we left, I was bummed we weren't able to experience it. Don't worry - if the elevator is broken the staff will carry your bags up the 4 flights of stairs. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is superb - 1/2 block from Queen Victoria Building, a short walk to Hyde Park and the Botanical Gardens. It's a little further to walk to Circular Quay and the Opera House, but it's not that far. My mom is 70 and she was fine - we walked all over the place. Would definitely stay here again!

Our stay was in mid-November 2012 for 3 nights during the Sydney portion of our Australian trip. We had 4 adults and 2 kids (8 & 10) sharing three different rooms on the same floor, and were very pleased with our accommodations. The location is unbeatable, within walking distance to too many amenities to mention and right along the free-bus route. The staff was incredible - friendly, helpful and welcoming. Many of the staff worked at the restaurant and bar, so we got to know them a bit, and they gave us wonderful advise on things to do within the CBD. The hotel was definitely "old school" - the elevator being from the mid-19th century, but it was charming. The rooms were nice sized, and for a family of 6, this hotel was had at an incredible value, given the cost of everything else available. The accommodations were clean and tidy. We could not have expected anything more at this price-point. We had two of our three dinners in the attached restaurant, and would also recommend that as well due to the value for what you get. We will be staying here again on our next visit to Sydney.

Room Tip: The normal travel engines (Expedia, Travelocity, Hotels.com, etc) do not have this hotel come up on...

What else to say? Town train station just opposite the hotel, woolworth supermarket just next door so convinient to top up our supply of water, bread etc. Darling harbour ten minutes away on foot, Opera house 20mins, Hyde park and Westfield five mins only... I can't be more grateful for this superb location. After a long day walk around the city, to know that u are less than hour to reach your room was a bless! The room was clean, nice size for two adult plus baby. Definitely stay here again! Thanks Luke for a wonderful stay! ;)

I spent a lot of time searching for a reasonablly priced hotel in Sydney and picked Hotel Coronation after reading Trip Advisor recommendation as budget deal. My room was comfortable, quiet and clean. Actually was surprised the bathroom was larger than expected as I thought this would be small like a London hotel deal! Luke at the reception was great - so friendly and helpful. He booked my shuttle to the airport, gave directions, advice and always had a smile or something funny to say. When you are doing budget, that is exactly the kind of extra front desk attention that earns your hotel big points. Thank you LUKE!
Woolworth's is right next door so I just picked up some cereal and milk and had breakfast in room. There is small fridge to keep your stuff. There is no internet but again Woolworth's has a huge internet center and it was a reasonable price - $5 for a 100 minutes I think. You were close enough to everything whether you wanted to walk or take public transportation. Remember it's a budget hotel - were there towels yes, were they soft and fluffy - no - if you keep this in mind, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Coronation is a really clean, tidy 'old-school' hotel in the centre of Sydney. All the big central attractions are a short walk away - even Circular Quay is only 15mins down the street. The rooms are small and basic, but clean and tidy. The bathroom was immaculate. The price is very good and the attached bar and restaurant serve cheap food and beer. What more does one need?! The hotel's other best asset is the staff - friendly, very helpful and welcoming. I enjoyed my stay and will return on my next Sydney trip.
