Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really small double room for price you pay. Just make sure you check properly the sq footage on the description. The room was barely wider than the length of the bed, which was right up against the wall so you had to climb over a person in the bed. No bedside light or charging port, and no drawers, cupboards to storage luggage except for a few hangers that float above next to the bed.

I was disappointed with this stay. Thought the staff was friendly and helpful, and the access to gym nearby was a nice perk, I was put into a room WITHOUT windows. Moreover, the Wifi was frustratingly spotty to the point where I could not use it to conduct business.

The hotel is falsely advertising King (size) beds as the measurements are nowhere near Aus standard. Bathroom shower head was very poor condition, phone didn’t work, a shower curtain-not really up to 4 star standard I felt. Staff v’good and always tried to assist. But some endemic issues with the facility that the staff really couldn’t be held accountable for, My aircon didn’t work properly, phone not at all, TV kept loosing digital signal … not a great experience or one I’d repeat again. Saving grace was location and staff… but there was a lot I wasn’t happy about.

Really loved the decor and set up. Perfect for a one night stop! Beds were comfortable. Room very clean and temperature comfortable. Bathroom in our unit #101 was unique against the street side. Front staff very friendly and quick. Nice and close to train and a 30 min walk to Circular Quay

Conveniently located near Central station with light rail, buses and trains to all parts of Sydney within close walking distance. Rooms were very comfortable and hotel well maintained. The complimentary snack type breakfast available in the hotel foyer each morning was a pleasant and much appreciated surprise.

This was such a disappointing stay. I stayed here a while ago and thought it was wonderful. But this time, the space was tired, I was given a room with a tiny 40cmx40cm window facing a wall that was completely frosted. the bed was sunken in the middle and was on wheels that rolled around the room like a skateboard. The shower head was cracked and had holes in it combine that with zero pressure it was not the best of times. The thing that got me the most was there is no kettles or tea or coffee facilities in the room. The facilities downstairs are great for breakfast but a little nighttime fix isn’t really fun, having to go back downstairs, and make sure you don’t forget something like I did and have to head back down again. Finally, the doors are paper thing. And although the walls are sound proof, the doors echo everything that comes from the hallway. I just felt so frustrated by this stay and for the price. It really ticked me off. So I decided to write about it.

Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, even though it's accompanied by a lower rating. We're truly sorry to hear that your stay didn't meet your expectations. It's disheartening to learn that our newly refurbished rooms didn't meet your expectations, and we apologize for any disappointment caused. At 57 Hotel, we offer a variety of room designs and layouts, and we regret if the one you were assigned didn't quite suit your preferences. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly on your next visit to Sydney, and we'll ensure to find the best fit for you. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by the cracked shower head and the lack of water pressure. Your comments have been forwarded to our maintenance team for immediate attention, and we'll work diligently to rectify these issues. While we don't have in-room tea and coffee making facilities, we do offer complimentary 24/7 barista-style coffee and a premium tea bar in the lobby. Additionally, we're more than happy to provide tea and coffee trays upon request. Just a quick call to our 24/7 team, and we would have swiftly delivered it to your room. We're sorry to hear that you experienced some noise from the corridors. Your concerns have been noted, and we'll make sure to assign you the quietest rooms available during your next stay.
