Boutique hotel 5 minutes from Darling Harbour. Great deal if you book direct - free continental breakfast & happy hour! Staff welcoming & cheery. Booked a shoe box room & was exactly that! Bathroom average with a inadequate shower, no view and (annoyingly) blackout blinds...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
