Even the Executive rooms are a little worn in some respects, but this has to be traded off against the location (which is fantastic), the balcony (a rarity these days) and the very practical manner in which our room was equipped - very functional, comfortable and practical - including the 2000 watt hair dryer (untethered and easy to use because...

Stayed for 3 nights with 4 other friends. We booked a deluxe 2 bedroom apartment with a trundle bed. Apartment was really good. Bathrooms recently renovated and everything clean and very comfortable.

Dear Trish B, Thank you kindly for your review and feedback, As our apartments are all individually owned, we are striving to encourage the apartment owners to invest in improving the apartment status. The sizes, however, are undeniably spacious. Location is a great bonus for our guests as well. We look forward to your next stay with us!

I was visiting Sydney for a conference on George Street and couldn't have picked a better location. Everything was within walking distance and the train station a couple of hundred meters away was so convenient, coming straight from the Domestic Airport Terminal. I walked to Darling Harbour for a dinner cruise and there were plenty of shops, restaurants and supermarkets...

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.
