“Great location, Great value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

As we all know Sydney accommodation is not cheap. This hotel was really close to all the attractions we needed to see at a really good price. No in house dining was not a problem as we were close to a great assortment of food restaurants. Close to Circular Quay, bus routes only 30 mins from the Airport out of peak times. Strongly recommend this Hotel if you don't want to pay to much for your accommodation.

I stayed 4 nights and chose the hotel for 2 reasons.
The location is Elizabeth St ,across the road from Hyde park and Museum station,only 15 mins by train from the airport.It is about 10-15 mins walk to Circular Quay or one train station.It is not far to walk to Central station (one station) or Chinatown.
The free city loop bus 555 goes past and is great but has limited hours.
I also wanted a studio rather than a hotel room.There was one single bed and one double bed,a sofa and chair,small dining table and a kitchen bench with microwave.It was a very comfortable room but the only negative was very uncomfortable (hard and irregular) beds which need replacing.If the beds were comfortable I would have given 5 stars.Parts of the hotel are being refurbished so maybe they will get new beds.They provide basic provisionsfor a light breakfast that can be supllemented from the large Woolworths supermarket nearby.

We have been here 3 nights of a 4 night stay. I was a little apprehensive about it because of some of the mixed reviews, here is what I found: we come to Sydney pretty regularly and a lot of the accommodation is really expensive .Hyde Park Inn is a mid range family hotel in an excellent central location, just opposite Hyde Park. Easy walking distance to most things, lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. The hotel is being updated and there is still some renovation going on but we didn't find this an issue. We stayed in room 803 on the 8th floor. There was some traffic noise, but there is double glazing. We have what they call a deluxe room with, a queen size bed and a single. There are two lounge chairs, small table, with three chairs, a flat screen tv and small but adequate bathroom. There is breakfast left each day in the fridge, sort of an Aussie continental breakfast of cereal, toast, juice with tea and coffee facility. This is a good value place to stay. There is parking available on site. The staff is a little impersonal but okay. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for one night only on a special of $192 a night for a large studio room, on the 4Th floor, which was a lot larger than most deluxe hotel suites - the bathroom was new with a very good shower and no fogged up mirrors! The compact kitchenette had everything you could need and the included breakfast products were of good quality and enough for two adults. The room had 2 double beds, TV, VCR -, lounge area with couches and coffee table, very spacious!Even though the location is on a busy road, we heard nothing all night once the windows are closed - the air conditioning was brilliant ( it was a hot and humid night), being absolutely quiet while we slept.We heard no noise from other rooms or the hallway despite our floor being quite full.
Check-in and out was quick, simple and efficient.
Our only issue was the cleanliness of the bedspreads having really obvious stains on it (photos included), and there being hairs ( not ours) in the bathroom from the previous guests - these were easily spotted and were a disappointing sight.But we would stay again.
The hotel isn't 5 star and doesn't boast it, but I would give them a solid 4. if they attend to the little cleanliness issues, they would be a solid 4.5.

My wife and I were in Sydney for 5 nights and we spent them at the Hyde Park Inn in Sydney. We were there Friday night through Tuesday night. We were on the 7th floor in room 707 facing the park in a deluxe room.

There have been many reviews and many complain about the noise. We had one of the renovated rooms. I have traveled internationally and around the USA for business plus we do a lot of personal travel. This is by far one of the very best places we’ve stayed.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Check-in and Check-out was fast and easy.

The room was comfortable and the climate control system worked great. We normally use ear plugs but we found the room to be very quite even though it is over a busy street and park and we were there over a Friday and Saturday night. There was plenty of closet and drawer space for cloths and things. The room was huge and it was great having a range, oven, microwave, and refrigerator. The bathroom was spacious and there was plenty of water pressure. The hot water was excellent and available quickly. All the rooms on our floor were occupied and we never heard any of our neighbors.

They have free laundry for guests off the first floor and we used it several times. Internet is not free and maybe a little pricy but it was fast!

An in room breakfast is included. In was adequate for us. It consisted of small orange juice cups, fruit cups, bread with butter and spreads, and cereal and milk. For use this was fine especially with how expensive Australia is. We would eat breakfast there and then go out exploring. We would have a big lunch out wherever we were and then come back and stop by a market and get some thing to take back to the room and fix a light dinner there.

The location is great. It is within easy walking distance to Circular Quay and the Museum subway station is right on the corner and it is one hop to the Central Station that takes you any where or you are two stops to Circular Quay. There are several places right next door to get carry out to take to your room and a Bottle Shop just a block away. A full supermarket is only 2 blocks away as well.

For the price, location, staff, and quality of the room made this a top choice for us. We loved it and would go back there in a heart beat.

Room Tip: Try to get a room higher up. The 7th floor was fine at least for us.
