This hotel is minutes from Wynward station so it is extremely easy to take the metro from the airport (buy an Oyster card at the airport either at the station or in the shop near baggage claim). The metro station exit next to the hotel has a Woolworths for grabbing snacks, fruit, juice, etc which we kept in our minibar fridge.
We walked to the opera house, on walking tours, and around everyday and the area is very safe. You can take the metro or the bus to Bondi beach. Getting around was so easy walking or with our Oyster card.
The bed and furnishings in our room were very nice and modern and everything you would expect from a luxury hotel. Housekeeping and all the staff were also great.
I recommend this hotel and if you are looking for a place to eat, skip the fancy restaurants or the areas near the rocks and stick to the food courts. We ate at Chat Thai which was great, Din Tai Fung, and so many other places that were great and better than the touristy, more expensive places by the Opera House.More
