    Very central place to stay, handy to trains and central Sydney. Room was clean and tidy and bed comfy we slept well. Eat out places are very convenient Mcdonalds are only a 4minute walk and a Chinese restaurant is almost next door

    If a hotel is going to charge $479 for two nights, I'd expect it to be at least half decent. I booked 2 nights accommodation 4 days prior to our stay through Wotif and the next day I found out that my auntie might not...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
