Hyde Park Inn is there a pool near by?

Ok we are a family of 4 coming to Sydney in December.

I have booked a room at Hyde park Inn but only just thought with the heat in December the kids might want to cool off in a pool.

This hotel hasn't got one!!

Do I change my booking to a hotel with a pool or is there one near by we could use?

Closest public pool would be the Andrew Boy Charlton Pool down along Mrs Macquarie's Rd. You'd have to walk through Hyde Park, and down along through/ along the Domain which is quite pleasant and shady, but a bit of a trek. Quite a bit out of your way most of the time I should think.

If you search on www.wotif.com you can tick the "pool" box & see the full list, although most tend to be indoor pools.

Closest pool is Cook and Phillip; literally 500m diagonally across the park.

It's not really a relaxing place though - lots of office workers doing laps and quite warm inside with the pool heating.

Your hotel is right on the bus route for Bondi, Bronte, Clovelly, Coogee, Maroubra, Malabar, Little Bay and La Perouse beaches... travel time from 25mins-50mins depending on route and traffic. Great way to cool off at the end of the day (best time to go down IMO is between 4 and 6pm)

I agree with aussieboy and suggest you visit the beach to cool off: head there in the later afternoon, go for a swim, have some dinner and come back. You'll also sleep like a log.

If you really want to swim in the city, the Boy Charlton pool is a great place for a swim, even if it is a little bit of a walk away.

Enjoy!
