I was in transit but wanted go to The Rocks so this hotel was close to Wynyard station, Circular Quay and the Rocks. Very easy walk to all. The York is a place to sleep - no restaurant and no bar but a great pool and adequate gym. Reception was easy and the lifts close. My room was high up...

Firstly location great, 10 min walk to darling harbour or circular quay. Lots of shopping and restaurants very close by. The one bedroom apartment wasn't as it appeared on the website. Very large but very out dated (clean though).

We arrived on an early flight from Christchurch and got the train directly from the airport. I can't remember which line it was on, but there was no need to change and we then had about a 4 minute walk from the Station to the hotel. It would probably be quicker if we hadn't been pulling large cases. The hotel...

Arriving on Xmas Eve for a 3-night stay, we were impressed with the size of our deluxe two-bedroom apartment on level 24. Pretty clean, but room service was limited to taking garbage out. No vacuum cleaning or refilling of complimentary items in the kitchen. I understand most of the days of our stay were public holidays, but that's why we...

We had our 'girls weekend' here in November, and enjoyed every second. The hotel is in a great position for catching the trains, one stop to Town Hall, and in the other direction, one stop to Circular Quay. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded from the rooms we booked, had a great view over the harbour, no noise. We...

Location was excellent by Wynyard station. Large apartment. Upgraded to a 1 bed and not a studio apartment free of charge. Check in was easy and quick and very informative. Check out was quick and easy. Toilet cistern needed replacing (so they claimed on the "sorry note"!) and it was replaced without us even knowing!

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.
