A great location in the heart of the city, close to all transport links and even a supermarket on your doorstep. We stayed in an un-refurbished studio unit.

Our arrival at this hotel was very welcoming and the location is excellent. The apartments are quite dated, I almost felt like I was stepping into the 70's, however, still very comfortable.

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.
