Location was great for wondering around the city, close to The Rocks, Circular Quay, George Street shops. 5 minute walk to Wynyard Train station. The apartment we stayed in was very clean, serviced daily, full kitchen, balcony and bed was very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Problem with wifi during our 4 day stay, however I understand technicians... More

Location is extremely convenient, regardless of the destination. With public transport just minutes walk away, and a couple minutes walk to George street, it does make the day more productive. Thank you for your posting. More

My Teenage Daughter and I booked the York for a girlie trip to Sydney, and were very fortunate to take advantage of a mid winter special that was available directly via their Website.

Catching up with friends, I knew i would have to stay in Town rather than struggle home in the early hours on the train. Room was excellent overlooking the city landscape.

Stayed a Friday night, Very central location, close to Wynyard Station and parking around the back. Check in at 1.30 very good. We stayed in an un-renovated room at a great discount, but it still was good with a small kitchen and large open plan room. Would definitely stay again.

Our family of 5 stayed in a two bedroom apartment. It was okay, could do with modernising. The main bed was very low to the ground which would be difficult for some people to get in and out of.

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.
