Good price, five minutes walk from the train and bus. Shared kitchen and bathrooms. Rooms are basic with an overhead fan a tv, mini fridge, bed and clothes rack. Situated about a bar.

Ok well we stayed in 2 room's at this hotel, which were both clean and tidy. Beds were good and i didnt hear a thing at night. The hotel is in a great location with shops close by and train just a few minutes walk...we walked everywhere.

My husband and I stayed here on July 31st. The room was little but clean. Above the bed was a bad repair job, and to the right was a hole in the wall covered with tape. The website is misleading - it says "All rooms have cable tv". They don't. We had 3 channels, and only 1 was cable, and the picture wasn't great. The remote didn't work. The sign outside advertises food specials on the weekends, but the kitchen was closed on Saturday night. The free breakfast was stale wheat bread and cereal. You're better off bringing your own food. Our biggest issue was that the bar is closed on Sunday. We had no idea where to check out - we knocked on the locked bar door, an employee (I hope!) said just to give the keys to him without asking our name or room number. The only reasons we would come back are the price (90.00), the comfy bed, and the location.

Room Tip: Booking on their website is cheaper

Seriously, I've stayed in some dives before, but this takes the cake. Think Psycho and the Bates Motel...not the luxury shower scene Motel rooms, think the creepy house on the hill. The room smelled like a toilet, the shower was disgusting and had a towel with blood on it hanging on the rail. Their website is very misleading. Significant safety issues too. This isn't a hotel of last resort for me, I'd prefer to spend the night on the street.

I've stayed in worse places around Sydney.. For the cost of the accommodation, I found it to be very clean and the bed was comfortable.. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived which is understandable at 10am but the hotel staff were friendly and allowed us to leave our luggage while we went out for breakfast. They even took our bags up to our room.. If your looking for somewhere just to sleep, then its a great hotel.. I did take my own pillow after reading other peoples reviews but it wasn't really necessary.. The meals in the hotel were no worse than any other hotel we had dinner at while there.. For a 2 star hotel, I would highly recommend it over other places.. Its a great location, close to Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Public Transport..

Our recent stay at Wynyard Hotel was met with appalling and unprofessional service. A communication error between Wotif and the hotel resulted in one of our guests without a bed. In trying to resolve this calmly with staff, the response on numerous occasions was one of indifference, they simply didn’t care and were unwilling to find an adequate solution. In the end, one of guests was left to sleep on the floor. Staff were also condescending and rude. We were most unimpressed with our stay, and the stress of the incident ruined our trip. I would never stay at Wynyard Hotel again, and would strongly advise others against doing so.

Absolutely filthy. Bar was closed over the weekend, so no-one came to clean the communal facilities. I had to complain twice to the caretaker before he eventually came and ran a dirty mop over the floor.

Continental beakfast consisted of stale cereal and mouldy bread.

If you have a cardboard box to sleep in, I would consider that first!
