I'm really tossing between an "Average" or "Poor" rating here. I needed to only stay at a hotel for one night and this was a perfect location. Absolutely close to Wynyard Station - we're talking about 1-2 minutes walk only to the station. This allowed...More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Relatively cheap for Sydney, but you only get what you pay for. Rooms are very basic. Shower room tiny. The real disappointment was that there is no lift. Stairs are very steep as you enter the building, through a...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
