The City Lodge is by far the cheapest hotel in the Sydney CBD. It is pleasantly clean and the rooms are well organised. We have a King size bed and the en-suite is large and well maintained. They free wifi and there is a kitchen...More

Pictures are very deceiving. Stayed in a "premium" double. Yuk yuk yuk. Rooms are tiny, bathroom plumbing stunk. Bedspread was old and dingy - not inviting at all. TV reception fuzzy. Definately over priced for what it is. Staff nice enough but barely told us...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
