After requesting a quiet room we were woken at 5.30am each morning by rubbish trucks in the back lane way. A complaint to management offered free breakfast or parking, neither of which we required. A request to reduce the room rate was not forthcoming as I had already paid and it was too difficult for them to figure out a...

The room sizes are okay with a modern decor, the views from level 9 aren't special, and the staff are attentive to your needs. There is car parking available. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants and near the Capital Theatre and Central Railway Station.

Rated this Motel poorly due to the Breakfast experience. This Motel caters for the Tourist Bus hordes, on both mornings of our stay there was no available tables in the Breakfast restaurant. Other than that the Motel was fine with nice rooms and location handy to Central Railway Station

We had one night at this hotel which was part of a cruise package deal. Firstly, the staff on reception were extremely helpful, courteous and friendly. I recently rang them, a month after staying there, to find out if a piece of jewellery had been left there. Although the answer was no, the staff were again friendly and efficient and...

I always stay at Rydges Centre when visiting Sydney because of it's location . The upgrade currently in progress is fantastic - rooms look great , very spacious, Good restaurant attached to the hotel. It is certainly worthwhile being the rewards member.

Stayed in the hotel for a conference. On booking in, the wrong room number was written on the key card requiring a journey up, down and up again from the tenth floor after the embarrassment of trying to get into someone else's room. Furthermore, an alarm went off at 3 am, accompanied by a reverberating loud noise, akin to a...

This was our second visit to Sydney and staying in this hotel and once again had a great time. Beds were comfortable and the pool was great to relax in after walking around the city all day. Close to the train station and Chinatown and if you have the energy it is a pleasant walk to Circular Quay. My only...

Not a classy joint by any stretch of the imagination but a totally adequate hotel. Perfectly located near Central Station. We got the train from the airport and wandered a couple of minutes up to the hotel. Brilliant. The place is very neat and tidy, but the BIG winner here are the bathrooms. I assume they've been renovated. They are...

We stayed in this hotel for five nights at the end of Jan and three nights in the middle of Feb. The location is great; right next to the train station and easy walking distance into the city. The staff were all really helpful and keen to make us feel at home. The rooms were large and comfortable though the...

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills

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.
