I chose this hotel after looking at several options in Tripadvisor. I'm glad I could join all these complimenting people :) The front staff was really friendly, helpfull and professional, I can only wish we had the same kind in Finland! They're all in the right profession!

My room was big enough (I stayed alone, so the doublebed was huge :D ) and it was absolutely clean, like the bathroom (I had a shower). My room didn't have a window, which was kind of a bummer. My friend was staying in a room with a window (at the same time) and she said I had the better deal, because the street was pretty noisy. I didn't hear a thing.

I opened a bottle of water on the desk, thingking it wasn't part of the minibar (the hotel seemed so fancy I thought they offered it), only to realise later I did have to pay for it. My bad.

The location was awesome! Near the Hyde Park, near train station, near Monorail stop - all about one block away! To me it was also a walking distance from the Sydney Opera House.

Dear Delenna,

Thank you so much for your kind words! We are very happy that we lived up to your expectations in every way.

Our Standard rooms do all have the frosted windows ensuring maximum privacy and noise control - they are perfect for single travellers and we are so glad you enjoyed it!

We always encourage guests to contact us directly with reservation enquiries, that way we can do our best to accommodate requests such as higher floor allocations for lighter sleepers (the Sydney CBD can indeed be quite vibrant at times!). For anyone who is concerned about street noise we would definitely recommend our split-level level Loft Apartments which are on the top floor of our hotel and very quiet.

Please let us know when you are next planning to visit Sydney so that we can look after you with the best possible rates. We love to welcome back familiar faces and look forward to having you with us again!

Warm regards,

The Park8 Team

Perfect location, outstanding service, very clean apartment. The front staff are very courteous and profestional. They are definitely a credit to the organisation. As mentioned location is perfect for all those who wish to shop all day and perfect for Sydney's transport system with train stations close by in all directions and taxis just around the corner.. Its also great to walking to all the great restaurants Sydney has to offer. A real bonus is the 24 hour coffee from their attached coffee shop... and it's real coffee. That in itself is worth the stay. When in Sydney next staying here is a must if you want all you expect from a hotel. Could'nt fault it.

Room Tip: If you are offered the upgrade take it. its not that much more and worth it. Make sure you have thei...

Dear KiwiStevechch,

We were so excited by your kind words - thank you for such a shining review!

It is wonderful that you enjoyed the coffee from our espresso bar, Cafe8. We are truly lucky to have such a wonderful little extra service for our guests (and ourselves! In fact, we're indulging in a macchiato and spaghetti & cheese jaffle for lunch right now - yum!).

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to Park8 Hotel and remember that our reception is 24/7 so we are here to help with reservation enquiries at any time.

Warm regards,

The Park8 Team

I am a Aussie who travel between Tokyo and Sydney and work in the hotel industry. Every aspect of Sydney hotels are well below the standard that of Tokyo Hotels. So I try to compare to Park8 to the Sydney Hilton. The difference is the price , u pay more for the same standard u receive at the Hilton so that means u should stay at the Park8 and pay less and the Hilton is only a block away in location.

This was an easy choice given the central location within 1 block of Town Square train station and 1/2 block of Hyde Park (great for walking or a morning run).

My huge corner room, 403, was bright and airy with a gorgeous deep bathtub. It was a bit noisy but had double pane windows that help a bit. Check out is at Noon which helps when you're traveling for business.

Good equipment in the room - safe, iron, fridge, coffee/tea making, desk, etc. All the normal things one needs when traveling. Bed was a bit squishy for me but nonetheless I slept well.

Front desk help was superb - warm, friendly, and professional. Great first impressions.

Only concern was when I came out of my room and found a woman wandering the halls looking for an Accountant's office (which was 1 block away according to the business card she was holding). Not sure how she got onto the floor given the security swipe card required to get to a particular floor. Her story seemed a bit off and I did wonder....and made sure I had my valuables in the safe or with me from then on.

Then, housekeeping came in the following day without knocking thinking I had checked out. Good thing I was dressed! He seemed sincerely apologetic and probably just needs a bit of training to knock 2x and call out "housekeeping" before entering. Might be a good thing to check the guest list to confirm check-out. Yes, I had the lock on the door but it didn't work. No harm done though.

I travel all the time for work and these two events will put me off staying at the hotel again on my own. However, I would book it for when my husband and I are in Sydney.

Room Tip: 403 - large corner room with a nice partial view of the Park.

Dear VCD1,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback and we are delighted that you enjoyed your room!

We are most grateful that you bought that odd incident regarding the woman on level 2 to our attention. It appears that she gained access via the elevator with some other guests who were returning to their room on level 2. We do often get people at our property looking for the well hidden accountants office (located just on the other side of our neighbouring post office), so it is not unusual to hear that she was a little lost, but it is highly unusual that she gained access to one of our levels. Our 24/7 reception desk will be sure to continue to closely monitor all entries and exits to the hotel with this instance in mind.

Similarly, thank you for you notes regarding the housekeeping intrusion. They do indeed have a list of occupied rooms and this was, unfortunately, a simple case of human error. You are very kind to note how apologetic the staff member was and all we can do is extend our most sincere apologies again, and assure you that we have reiterated to our housekeeping team the importance of attention to detail to avoid this happening again!

It is such a shame that these instances have affected your confidence in our property but we are so happy that you will return with your partner - maybe then we can mend the relationship and make you feel secure once again.

Stay well until your next visit!

Warm regards,

The Park8 Team

We stayed here in early July. We had 2 rooms, a deluxe room for us and the 2 brm apartment for my sister and her two teens. We all had a fab holiday and loved the location and amenities of the hotel. I think the free wifi is a nice touch too. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly, right from booking to after we checked out! Only 2 grizzles is the room we had was quite dark and the lights weren't great to read by. Mercedes assured me she was sorting that out. The other was, using the sister hotel laundromat involved a trek to Chinatown. A local laundromat recommendation would have been better if there is one. I'd recommend staying here, it's reasonably priced for a central Sydney hotel. We also enjoyed eating breakfast at the Coffee Club round the corner. The food was good and gluten and dairy free were no problem.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and apartment and got them.

Dear princess5222,

Thank you so much for choosing to spend your time in Sydney with us and for your glowing review!

You are absolutely correct - we are sourcing new bedside lamps with much better lighting for reading. We are looking forward to having them in all rooms and to hearing your thoughts after your next visit!

Self-service laundromats are a tricky one in the CBD area, certainly at our end of town in particular. Of course, we do have serviced laundry and dry cleaning available for our guests at the hotel, but we understand that some travellers prefer to do their own laundry (especially to save costs when travelling for extended periods of time!). So, we will keep searching for closer options and if any readers out there know of any self-service laundromats near our hotel, please do let us know!

We are so looking forward to having you with us in the future and wish you all the best until then.

Warm regards,

The Park8 Team
