Fantastic X-Mas and NYE

Hotel is placed 5 minutes by walk away from the famous Opera House. You are in the center of Sydney and the hotel was worth its price. Friendly and gentle hosts, clean rooms and a nice spa.

Central Location

I have stayed here a number of times in the past, and was pleasantly surprised to note a definite improvement in staff attitude and service. Payed extra to have access to the executive lounge, which provided a rather meagre breakfast (lots of room for improvement), and evening drinks/canapes. The canapes were more plentiful than a previous trip, and the lounge is a generally comfortable place to have a drink and relax before dinner. Unlike other hotels in the area, however, this lounge does not offer free wifi. The lounge staff were pleasant, but did not speak English well enough to understand or answer questions, and seemed fond of clearing up the evening refreshments 20-30 minutes before the posted closing time. Rooms are large (for a city), well appointed, and were spotlessly clean. Some traffic noise noted, even on higher floors. Broadband internet in rooms. Concierge desk personnel were extremelly helpful. Location is close to transportation (both bus and trains), and the tourist areas. Great choice for a hotel in the Sydney CBD.

Amora Jamison almost perfect!!

This was mine and my wife's first trip to Sydney and in fact Australia. The Amora Hotel was without a doubt one of the better things about the trip. They checked us in early, the bed was huge and comfortable, the bathroom was like a resort - gorgeous clear glass shower. It was very quiet, had a nice balcony facing the Rocks area, the room was big for the price and it's in a great location. The Rocks and Circular Quay are about a 5 minute walk, Darling Harbour and Kings Cross both about a 10 minute walk. The area around the hotel has a ton of amenities inlcuding quick access to Sydney's AWESOME rail system (Wynyard station). In the rail station is a cheap laundry (dont use the hotel for this, $$$$$) - a Coles (big grocery store with good prices) and a ton of little fast food restaurants. Mcdonalds is actually good here- as are Oporto (chicken/burgers) and Starbucks (2 within 3 blocks.) Within a few blocks in the Rocks are a lot of good Italian restaurants, lots of little tourist traps, souvenirs, etc. The only NON awesome thing about the Amora is the internet access - being from the USA, we expect cheap or free wifi everywhere we stay. Theirs in $10 for an hour or $50 for the week. It is slow, wired only and not fast. A hotel otherwise of this calibre should get with the program. I am more than willing to pay a few extra bucks to have the internet free. Get a clue, Amora. Otherwise highly recommended - but bring your aircard!!!

DONT take Sydney airport shuttles - do the CityRail if you can. The shuttle takes forever and they keep driving around until it's full. Complete waste of $24 a person.

sydney Amora Jamison

We arrived at 8 am after an all-night flight and they were kind enough to let us check in early without any problems. The concierge was incredibly helpful in arranging tours and dinner reservations. We signed up for a Club room, which included free internet access and a nice continental breakfast and evening wine reception. A great value when you consider that internet access was normally $9.99 for 2 hours and breakfast was $30. Great central location with easy walking (<10 minutes)to Darling Harbour, central shopping district, Circular Quay, and the Rocks.

Amora in Sydney

We enjoyed our stay. The staff, especially the concierge, were most helpful. Nice extra touches, like fruit, provided. Although we arrived on a very early morning flight, the hotel had a room ready that they allowed us to check into at 9am, which was so nice. I would suggest a fresh duvet cover for each guest instead of the fancier one that is likely not changed between guests.

Look for souvenirs in Chinatown or at Paddy's Market. They sell the same merchandise as the shops on the harbor, but the asking prices are less, and they will bargain a discount.

amora jamison

overall very nice service and many stylish touches in the rooms but the tvs are small/old. the tiling in the bathroom area needed to be regrouted/cleaned around the shower and tub. gym was small and old equipment. overall had a dated feel. one other issue---they charge extra for using a credit card so be prepared to pay additional 1.5 to 3 percent. definitely not a 5 star but probably 4 star is right

Location, location, location.

I stayed at the Amora Jamison for two nights so I could see a bit of Sydney before continuing on to New Caledonia to visit a friend and vacation there. The hotel staff were excellent and the room was spotless and surprisingly quiet for being in the heart of the city. Since the Opera House and Harbour Bridge were must-see items, I appreciated the fact that they were within easy walking distance. There is also lots of restaurants, pubs, and shopping centres along the way, so you could essentially find anything you were looking for. I took a tour that included a harbour lunch cruise, and the Circular Quay where the cruise boat and water-taxi`s arrive & depart is only two blocks away. Perfect! The only complaint (or irritation) I had with my stay there was being charged an additional $1.80 AU for a local call to confirm my harbour tour, and the fact that when I had the munchies late in the evening, they wanted $6.00 AU for a tiny bag of potatoe chips that was available along with the similarly ridiculous priced items in the bar fridge. Maybe it`s just my way of thinking, but I resented them price-gouging their guests.

Stylish, convenient comfort in the city

The Amora has it all, very stylish decor with a warm and inviting atmosphere, excellent staff and services, spacious (corner) rooms with great views, and a perfect location - walking distance to The Rocks, Circular Quay/Opera House/Botanical Gardens and Darling Harbour yet set away from the crowded tourist areas. The only negatives were the lack of cafes/restaurants open on weekend mornings within a two black radius (plenty in more touristy areas) and they need to replace the window shades that are falling apart. But the positives far outweigh the negatives.
