Forget eating at the hotel, eapecially breakfast, the place is full of lovely food joints for all budget. Charming hotel but rooms are a bit tired, but the location is second to none: we walked everywhere!

Old style hotel in a fabulous spot. Food was excellent, service hit the mark every time and I felt like home from home. The size of the room was very generous and facilities had a touch of luxury feel to them.

When we checked in we were given an up grade and our suite was amazing felt very spoilt. All staff were very nice and professional. Great location and easy to get to. Parking was good. We can wait to go back one day.

I received a warm greeting upon arrival and check out. The room was a decent size, clean and comfortable. Room service was quick and adequate. Good location if you need to be near the Quay and within budget.

Dear garetheo, How right you are the Sir Stamford at Circular Quay is definitely ideal for a before or after a cruise with the family. We may be a little more expensive than hotels out of the city, but oh how conveniently located we are. This does save on tranport and shoe leather if wanting to get to the Opera... More

Was expecting to book into a 4 star hotel, which it would've been in 1970. Great location but needs a complete refurbish. I felt like Id stepped back in time but in an out dated, smelly and worn way, not a classic and classy way. The staff were friendly and helpful but it didn't make up for the disappointment at...

Sir Stamford at Circular Quay is without doubt my favourite hotel in Sydney. Its beautifully appointed rooms remind one of the Grand Epoque and the hotel has justifiably one of the best hotel bars in town.

Close to all you want and near the Opera House, the Rocks, restaurants and transport. This place is amazing with delightful staff, service and clean big rooms. Breakfast was great and so was the price. High tea was to die for as well.

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.
