Older centrally located hotel with city views only. The lobby is impressive with lots of flowers on display. Rooms are on the smaller side but well kept. No swimming pool and limited opening hours for gym. read hotel review

Amazing property
  • Recommended hotel

  • City break
  • April 2015
This hotel is really good and service is outstanding. I'd say it was the best hotel service-wise which we stayed at in Australia. Full recognition of Accor Platinum (however, no lounge access). Great rooms, great location. read hotel review

Time to catch up with the competition
  • Recommended hotel
  • Couples
  • City break
  • April 2015
There are a lot of other hotels in the CBD that mean there is a lot of competition and I am not sure that this hotel is keeping up... The rooms are getting a bit dated - the decor is beige in beige and rooms are relatively small for this class of hotel. There is no buzz or sense of 'je ne sais quois' to differentiate it from a lot of other offerings. read hotel review

    The size of the room was a bit small but it was clean. As stated above, it lacked pizazz... The basic equipment was fine and the bathroom was nice and reasonably spacious. I loved the bed.

  • Service
    3.0

    Both during this visit and previous one, I found the service to be variable. The staff are nice enough, but they seem overworked. Both times we arrived early and had to wait for our rooms. They promised to take our suitcases up while we were out and didn't . It took quite a bit of effort to get them sorted. In the morning the place is chaotic during check out time... We went to the special counter as we are Platinum Members with Accor but the guy serving there was incredibly slow. People were talking about it in the queue....

  • Location
    6.0

    This hotel is in a great location as it is walking distance from Circular Quay (< 10 minutes). There is a big park nearby and for people who are reasonable on their feet you can get almost anywhere quite easily on foot. The hotel is also on the right side of town to have excellent access to the airport. The trip is easy and quick. It isn't worth taking the train for two people. The only issue is that the train stations are not that close by... We walked from Circular Quay.

    The big plus l found is the French restaurant on the fifth floor. It strikes the perfect balance between formal and casual and is just beautiful... We have an Accord advantage plus card so the food is very well priced. The ground floor restaurant is pleasant but the choices are limited.

Fancy lobby, tiny rooms
  • Hotel not recommended
  • Couples
  • City break
  • December 2013
Fancy common areas, very corteous and helpful staff. Room was small though and it did not feel exactly great value. I understand that it is a 'heritage building', but that does not help a small room feel bigger and a narrow and noisy bathroom door (looks like a wardrobe door) that might have been a 'cool' designers touch in the 1950ies does not do the trick in 2014. Other than that it is located a short walk away from Circular Quay, even closer to the Botanical Gardens and in general it is a good starting point for sightseeing in Sydney. read hotel review
