Amazing Syndey Hotel in Central Business District

Large room with high ceilings and many big windows, extremely large bath with separate soaking tub (always harder to find in a hotel these days). Absolutely LOVED this hotel. Out of the madness and crowds at The Rocks, yet close to the light rail to get there and to the Sydney Opera House. Very affordable for what you get. Super friendly staff, plus a dozen restaurants right outside your door.

This place is just gorgeous. We only got to stay for one night but we have plans of staying there again very soon for a longer period of time to not only take in what the hotel has to offer but also the food, culture and atmosphere around the hotel. Our room was delicious! Very modern, very boutique. Cant wait to get back there, I give it 2 very enthusiastic thumbs up!!!!
