Great location, close to train, supermarket, and lots of city attractions. Quite noisy at times during the night. The room was spacious and had good facilities, but needed some maintenance to the squealing sliding door and water hammer in the pipes. The cleaning and maintenance staff were particularly friendly. Good aircon. Spacious bathroom.

The apartments are really well located and very spacious. We were happy with our 8 night stay overall but felt some improvements could easily be made to lift this establishment into the 4 star bracket. The price we paid for the space, comfort and location was fair and the hotel provided ample towels, bedding, coffee supplies throughout our stay. Our...

This is a great location. It is on the upper side of a hill, but still within walking distance to all sight seeing attractions. Every aspect of the Hotel is upmarket and lovely touches throughout. Gratefully we were upgraded to the top floor, what lovely views....!

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.
