We stayed 5 nights in the beginning of January. The location is amazing but don't expect too much of a view. It is a few minutes walk to the bus to Bondi which is very handy. Botanical garden is 3 min walk and the same for Circular Quay! We had a deluxe room with twin beds and I must admit...

Our four night stay in this hotel was very relaxing. It is perfectly located 2 minutes from Circular Quay, the staff were attentive and friendly and the room was comfortable and quiet. The hotel has a pleasing old world feel without being over the top and impersonal. The breakfast was superb as was the menu and food served in the...

Sir Stamford is my wife's favourite hotel so with a private function at the NSW Art Gallery, it was the perfect lace to say with a short walk across the domain on a balmy summer evening. We had a balcony room, a great place to read the paper before breakfast which involved a morning walk through the Botanic Gardens to...

Hey Fay K, Thanks so much for giving us full marks. It's wonderful to read how much you enjoyed your stay with us.

An elegant, quiet and beautiful hotel located close to Sydney Harbour and opposite the Royal Botanical Gardens. We shared a twin room with a balcony which overlooked the quay with views of the cruise ship docked in the harbour. Perfectly lovely. No traffic noise from our room located on the forth floor. The room was large and the marble bathroom...

We loved our stay. The location was perfect - 3 blocks from Circular Quay so it was quiet but an easy walk to the bustling fun Quay, ferries and train. It is directly across the street from the Botanic Gardens (free), so we took a walk there each morning. The decor is definitely "old school", but pleasant. Our room was...

Great location right by Circular Quay and a nice traditional old school hotel. The room was very sizeable and comfortable. The bathroom was a tad old but the rest was great. Good service - only downside was the outdoor pool which was tiny and cold.

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.
