Vulcan Hotel, Ultimo
Quick overnight in Sydney before flying home
Our experience at the Vulcan Hotel was good. It is near a train station and several eating option. We stayed in a room with double queen beds for two adults and two kids. The room came equipped with wine glasses and a wine opener, which was nice.

Very pleasant hotel near Central Station
Very pleasant hotel near Central Station, TAFE and University Technology. Everything worked and was in fine condition. I appreciated the "no noise" policy. My room was on the 2nd floor on the street side, and some traffic noise came through, but as I had to be up in the morning anyway it wasn't an issue.

Great choice
The price and location were perfect. Staff were also very helpful with suggestions about sightseeing and transportation. The hotel was very quiet, which was my favorite aspect.
