We booked a three night stay some months in advance and on arrival were assigned a studio room on the 10th floor. The room was clean and spacious, quiet but however dark without a view. As we were planning to be out most of the time that was fine with us. There were some maintenance issues with plumbing, telephone and...

Stayed here one night before catching a cruise, very handy location to walk to Overseas Passenger Terminal and easy to get to from airport via train (Wynyard Station). Spacious unit, private balcony nice, comfy bed, didnt get to use the spa, pool, gym etc but all looked good. Not that much road noise considering CBD location.

I'm sure some rooms have a great view. Mine wasn't one of them. Free wifi appreciated. However not so good when it comes and goes. Especially as the TV ran through it and really wasn't watchable for chunks of time. In a cold day in June the hearing was a bit insufficient. Overall I enjoyed the location and the apartment...

Stayed for two nights in an apartment room. The room was nice and large, with a comfortable firm (ish) bed. The pillows were reasonably firm and i had two good nights sleep. My room had little or no outside noise which helped. The lounge furniture and bed are quite low to the ground, which can be difficult for some people....

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.
