Great location, very good service and friendly staff - nice, clean rooms with great view. Easy access to the Opera house and ferries and trains. The Royal Botanic Gardens, the National Library and Art Gallery of New South Wales just short walking distance away. Perfect!

Great location. Skip the full breakfast not worth the money. It was more like a low budget hotel breakfast. Nothin special at all. Easy access to the E opera house and ferries and trains. Walking distance to the best of Sydney.

Booked a "room with a view" and most rooms have balconies. Reality is no view unless a building and the Cahill Expressway counts, no balcony either. When I mentioned my disappointment i was taken to another room which looked out onto Macquarie Street on the second floor and still no balcony. We decided to stay where we were, staff member...

Pleasant place, close in to CBD and Circular Quay. Room was large. Sitting room seemed pleasant, but I didn't have the opportunity to enjoy it. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Had a good sleep. My only "gripe" is that the room was a little dark in the evening, even with all the lights on - but this seems to...

Good sized rooms, nice bathrooms and very clean. Thank goodness for a place that supplies a decent number of coathangers and has some drawers to put underwear, etc into! An old fashioned hotel with a bit of character and good service. However why can't ALL hotels just provide free wifi these days?

I loved the grandeur of the old building. Service was high on my list here too - vigilant and helpful staff who were helpful and friendly. Intrigued by the old fashioned trouser and jacket rack in the room - not even sure what its called.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
