Good cheap place to stay if willing to travel into the centre. Not good for those with mobility difficulties. Unable to provide a walk in shower, steps to breakfast room. No quiet, well lit place to sit and only one armchair in bedroom, which was poorly lit. Staff very good. This is a very busy hotel.

A nice cool, clean and comfortable room with nice big comfy room and great shower. We were allowed early check in as our room happened to be ready early which we were very grateful for after our journey from London. Friendly staff too! :)

I travelled to Sydney in Oct 2016 to attend a conference and the Cambridge Hotel was recommended by my travel agent. Upon arrival I was greeted by the friendly staff and it was then when I encountered the first problem. When my booking was brought up on the system it was in my name but I was surprised to see...

The service and attention I receive at the Cambridge sees me coming back repeatedly. I can rely on the quality of all aspects of my stay, and this gives me the reassurance I need regardless of the purpose or duration of each stay.

Nice hotel, clean and comfortable, near shopping. Staff very accommodating by letting me shower at the pool after a long trip as I arrived before check-in. They then worked on getting the room ready asap.

I have stayed at the Cambridge Hotel on a number of occasions over the years and find the location to be convenient, the rates to be reasonable, and the room and facilities more than adequate for a comfortable stay.

Stayed here for two nights with my wife. It was hard to find something reasonably priced for a weekend stay. Having stayed at three other hotels on previous visits to Sydney I would say this was above average. We decided not to use the pool because of the overpowering chlorine smell. The poor people who are in the rooms overlooking...

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
