Funky hotel, huge bathroom (could do with a bigger mirror though). Comfy bed. Parking is an issue. Central to everything. This hotel has personality, different from other standard city hotels....even has fabulon to iron clothes lol. Clean, staff friendly, fruit bowl nice touch, good selection of tea and coffee in the room, highly recommend this place!!!

My partner and I stayed overnight during the week for a special getaway. We had the best experience! The studio room we stayed in was generously sized and included a myriad of added little extras which made the stay extremely comfortable and luxurious. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the bathroom was exquisite. All staff were extremely helpful and nice....

You really know what you're in for when you spot two sets of earplugs in the bathroom. But let's start with the positives: Great city location. Attentive and polite staff. Comfortable bed. Beautiful and modern interiors. Delicious room service. Good amount of space inside. There's an iPad in the room that you can use as well. Lots of items in...

The best and attentive service from the first moment we checked in. Beautiful rooms, professional stuff, perfect location, lovely breakfast area, the night club at the first floor can be overpacked some days, but if you want excellent dinner and more relaxed atmosphere- my advice to go to Japanese bar at the 4th floor

Best location if you want to be in the middle of night life in Sydney CBD. You can definitely hear the outside noise. You need ear plugs (provided) if you need to sleep early and wake up late. Room is very spacious as well as toilet and shower. Toilet is thoroughly cleaned everyday; I can smell cleaning products this is...

It's been a while since my last visit and I don't know why. I really love this place. The rooms are super cool and the bathroom magical with stunning white marble and a fold away screen so you can view the tv from the comfort of your bath-tub. The bed is set up on a platform that makes you feel...

Great location. Fantastic City. Excellent entertainment and good way to get into Mr. Wong restaurant. Staff quirky, maybe need a better presence, a uniform perhaps. The bars are excellent. Rooms are located in an old building and this is definitely historical as well as charming. Bathroom spacious and excellent. Now for the not so GOOD. The room is not user...

My wife and I stayed at the Establishment Hotel on our first visit to Sydney. The reception was welcoming. The room was spacious and of the highest quality. The breakfast in the atrium was wonderful. I echo some of the comments about the water from the shower. Another frustrating feature was the seemingly high tech light switch. Overall a very...

As an aging baby boomer - Im not really the target market for this trendy boutique hotel but enjoyed my overnight Sunday stay nonetheless. Good service and not having to queue for Mr Wong's was a huge bonus. Lovely room. Only niggles were the flood from the shower that others have noted and not having anywhere to hang up our...

From the street you might never stop at this motel. It was obviously built in the seventies and has no street apeal. But once inside it is terrific (let's be honest here for $99 you don't expect the Ritz) we were just stopping over one night on our way to Queensland so we were not after something that was too...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
