Reviewed 17 September 2016

Great central location in the heart of Sydney with secure underground parking. Staff were very competent and accommodating even including our unusual request for a microwave. Very basic rooms but priced accordingly. One of the highlights was the fantastic, well priced room service. The excellent room service food was sourced from the Porterhouse Irish Pub across the road.

The location is great, the staff are friendly. But the rooms were poorly sound-proofed meaning from around 6am onward I was woken up by people talking in the hallway. 300mb WiFi with only one user allowed to login is really not sufficient for 2016.

It was good to have our own space while visiting family. Spacious room and beautiful view of the city. Walking distance sightseeing around the city. Ideal and safe for morning or evening run or just walking.

This hotel is close to Central Station (but not close enough to walk with suitcases), it is within walking distance 35-40 minutes of the Opera House (beware that it is slightly uphill the whole way back), and very close to Hyde Park. So it is actually in a pretty good location. What was interesting is that there seems to be...

I found the Cambridge Hotel to be a comfortable, affordable, and safe place to stay. Professional and friendly staff at the front desk. Close to cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes. Most popular tourist destinations were within easy walking distance. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Stayed for a weekend on level 13. Room was clean and modern. Small but adequate for a short stay. Easy walk to city, the Rocks and a large choice of local restaurants! Staff are great and helpful. Nice views over the city and reasonable mini bar.

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills

This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
