    Above are just some of the adjectives Id use to describe this place. Certainly NOT a place you'd want to stay when visiting Sydney. The pub is grubby. Try's but fails to match the traditional Sydney pubs. Go to the many other pubs in Park...More

    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
