Sydney's Intercontinental is a great location, very close the Opera House, Botanic Gardens and the Rocks. While it is probably due for a makeover the rooms are comfortable and well appointed, the staff at reception are great and there are enough options on site for food or a drink to ensure you can be pretty self contained if the weather...

Had a great room on the 26th floor, awesome views, the room was very well appointed and clean. This hotel is in a very handy location, so close to the harbour and the ferries ready for exploring. We had the Seafood Buffet in the Opera Cafe (in the Hotel) and it was delicious, with the added bonus of a free...

Although one cannot say that the hotel has been refurbished very recently (the bathroom would need some rethinking), the room was of a good size and the bed extremely comfortable. Now, if you're looking for something special, try their breakfast: I never saw something like that, not even at the Shangri La!!! Not only the variety was impressive, but also...

This was our second stay at this hotel, and once again we were impressed. The staff at reception are polite and efficient. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable, with an excellent view. There was no street noise, or noise from other rooms either. We did find the cost of items in the mini bar to be ridiculously high for...

Great location as you can walk to Circular Quay and catch a ferry to the numerous places in Sydney. You can also walk to "The Rocks". It is opposite the Botanical gardens which is a wonderful place to visit. The roof top bar is Amazing particularly on a clear day as you have uninterrupted views of the Sydney Harbour bridge...

I stayed here with my husband for 5 nights in early December 2016 as part of a longer honeymoon in Australia.

Our room was thoroughly cleaned every day. - The view: We...

My wife and I are Sydney residents and ofetn 'go to town' and play tourist. We reserved a room through Trivago and at $300 for one night it was on the high end. The room was clean, tidy and sharp. 5 star? Maybe not: decor was tired, some wallpaper was lifting. Very picky however one expects the best when paying...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
