    Fantastic location, staff and facility. We enjoyed it immensely. Wonderful restaurants within walking distance such as Dare, Burgers and Ribs, and 6Head. The opera house is always inspiring but the Botanical Gardens are a dream. Sydney is my favorite city worldwide.

    It is very close to the ship terminal if you are going on a cruise. There were many restaurants close by also.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    This hotel location is in the middle of everything in Sydney's business district as well as the cruise port of Sydney. It provides dining options of its own, but there are many other options within a short walking distance of the hotel. Just a perfect location from which one can see the harbour bridge, and if no cruise ship is in, you can see the Opera House. Inside, the room is nice with double beds, big screen TV, You'll need a converter to plug in your electronics if you're not from Australia, but if the hotel is out of them, you can purchase one next door at the convenience store. Check-in is at 3PM, but if you arrive early, they will store your bags until you check in, and they'll loan you a key to use the restrooms in the meantime. Service is excellent. They provide iced tea and water for your convenience, Nice comfortable chairs and couches too. I'll stay here again.

    DON’T stay here for an early check in. We tried to communicate with the property prior to our arrival that our overnight flight would arrive in the morning and we would pay for early arrival - but they never responded to either request. We paid for a Harbour view but they were the last rooms cleaned on check in day - and your Harbour view 99% of the time will be a view of a huge cruise boat and hardly ever the Sydney Opera house as they picture. The room itself was pretty small and they bathroom was a bit outdated but they had strong WiFi and great hair dryer & comfortable beds. I did not feel like customer satisfaction was a top priority, but they are very close to the cruise ship boarding and will be packed regardless - so if your cruising this place is convenient, but if your just in Sydney for a short visit I wouldn’t recommend this place due to their lack of communication and low priority of our customer satisfaction. Had they responded to our request and told us - no early check in - we could have used our travel insurance and cancelled the request and found a hotel that could have met our needs.
