I recently stayed at the Establishment Hotel whilst visiting Friends. The rooms are beautiful and extremely clean, with wooden floors boards and beams, a marble bath and Bvlgari bath products. It was the little touches that really surprised me, daily baked fresh cookies and a turn down service in the evening, the music playing softly as you enter into the...

I have stayed at The Establishment for business travel in excess of 10 times in the last 2 years and whilst the rooms are well appointed, spacious and clean why is it they cant improve the service. On several occasions I have had to ask to be switched to a different room due to either noise or smoke. Surely as...

My husband and I had a great stay at the establishment. The room was beautiul and very relaxing. It was a shame the beds were all queen sized but it was comfy nonetheless. Great location but it is noisy when the club is blaring it's music - go straight to the bathroom and grab the earplugs! The restaurants in the...

Just completed a business trip to Sydney with my first stay at Establishment Hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, the location was convenient for business, the room amenities (bathroom, TV, A/C) all solid, and access to/from restaurants owned by the group that owns the hotel (Merivale) was excellent. In fact, at one of their premium spots on a difficult...

Establishment Hotel is in the financial district of Sydney. Still within walking distance of many of the "places" to visit in Sydney. The hotel is small with only 31 rooms. They are attached to another building that has a number of restaurant/bar venues. It is definately the place to see and be seen if you are in your 20's or...

We stayed here as a bit of a treat for our first few days in Sydney and certainly weren't disappointed. The location, service and room all exceeded our expectations - the hotel is situated a short walk away from both Darling Harbour & Circular Quay as well as the main shopping areas in the city so we were never far...

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.
