Macquarie Boutique Hotel
Ranked #135 of 181 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed 3 October 2013

After a stay in another hotel which was hell we moved to Macquarie Boutique for our last few nights in Sydney. What a great decision, contacted reception and they had a room ready for us within an hour.

Worked out to be a great base as transport was very close (hop on hop off 200m and 5minutes to central station) and we were straight out to Bondi, Coogee, the harbour and all the usual touristy spots.

Another big plus was the free WIFI and not your usual login sites, funny password by the staff :)

Basic rooms and very clean. Super comfy pillows in the bed which was great after a day out and about.

Finally have to mention the staff, they were super which always makes a place so much more enjoyable, always there to help and great fun. Thanks to chef as well for some lovely meals which went down great with the in house home brew, what more could we ask for.

No full time reception. Third floor office open sometimes.
You are on your own. Had to change rooms, first one unacceptable. The first floor is a bar, second floor a resturant. The website picture is deceiving.

I stayed here for the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed my time here. As soon as I arrived I was greeted by the lovely receptionist who already had our room ready and checked us in straight away. The room we had was very spacious and the beds were amazing and so comfortable! Housekeepers were always kind and the receptionists were always very helpful and the best part is the WIFI is also FREE!!

Its very close to Public Transport and the shops are just up the road which was very convenient for me. The pub downstairs was also a good choice to socialise and taste some of the beer they brew themselves.

Would I recommend this to a friend? Most definitely!! I look forward to staying there again

Thank you for making me stay a comfortable and enjoyable one!!

The Macquarie Boutique Hotel (also known as the Schwartz Brewery and most recently renamed the Sydney Brewhouse); is a great pub just on the edge of the inner city (nearest Surry Hills and not far from Central Station). It jumps and jives with wonderful live music; there is a brewery downstairs; there's food; there's a couple of party venues and the place is a good late nighter (open until about 2:00am on a busy weekend night). The people are 'transient' so there are no real 'regulars' and everyone seems to flow in and out of The Mac as it is known and to be friendly to one another. Hotel guests (those staying in accommodation) visit the bar and can luckily retire upstairs to the clean, no fuss rooms without having to seek a taxi although cabs a relatively easy to catch from this venue. Public transport is readily available just up the hill at Oxford Street or down the hill from Elizabeth. Always a really fun night and a great place to go with friends. There's pool and other 'entertainment' items thrown in as well if you're into that ... and a take-away bottle-o if you're going to a restaurant close by and need to grab something to take with you. A great place for quality live music. I always come back to The Mac.

This hotel is ok value for a cheap night / layover close to City / Airport / Train.

Don't expect luxury or great service, but rooms are adequate and reasonably clean.

For convenience and price (and 1 night only) this works well.

I stayed as I was attending a function close by and was only in town for a night.

Central rooms, whilst a little claustrophobic (no windows) are probably better for street noise.
