A very good place for a pre-cruise stay

We stayed one night at Amora Hotel before starting our 18 day cruise. Hotel is conveniently located close to the Cruise terminal, and within walking distance from attractions like Opera House, Royal Botanic Garden, Westfield Sydney Tower. Room was compact but comfortable. It was nice to find a glass enclosed shower stall. They even provided robes and slippers. The staff was courteous and efficient. They held our luggage and let us walk in the town before the room was ready. Concierge gave us a map and directions. We did not use the in-house restaurants.

Royal Botanic Garden with majestic trees on one side and Sydney Harbor view on the other is beautiful and is worth spending at least half a day.

Good location for Sydney City

No real complaints. Could not really state that this is 5 star tho, to be honest. Room was of basic standard. Staff good. Location good. An excellent base to explore the city from - 10 mins walk to circular quay, and the same for The Rocks area.

Overpriced and poor standards!

Stayed a week here just. Lived and stayed in Sydney many times, this hotel is NOT 5*, it would be 3 Only! Housekeeping staff are over-stretched, and stressed. Bed linen rarely changed unless you ask, beds not made properly with sheets hanging over, single mattress protectors on a double bed. Bathroom fittings are rusting and dusty. Light switches very old, cannot put light on in bathroom until you in and look behind folding door, impossible in the dark Terrible storage capacity in room, filled with useless hotel placed things, so we had to move things out and place them above the wardrobe to fit clothes in draws and have some decent space. Rooms are behind the times, carpets need cleaning, Aircon thick with dust and grime, lift panels faulty, look above you and you see months of flies and dirt in the lift lights! Urgh! Maintaining a hotel to a standard appears a problem here. Amora is Thai owned, but fails to meet their Asian standards. It does NOT sit in the Marriott, Sofitel, Four Seasons, Swissotel range which are 5*, yet they want the same rates. Disappointing, misleading, and i would Not recommend nor stay here again. Basic hygiene, proper housekeeing and Maintaining, are a sign of very poor management, with poor knowledge of their staff and hotel. The basics are not met here.

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.

You'll never open the door yourself!

I never touched the front door as the staff was always there to open the dor for us.Arrived at the hotel from our overnight international flight at 9am. I emailed 48 hrs ahead and they had a room for us right as we checked in. If you don't call ahead they probably wont have a room for you. Rooms are very large and first class. Bathrooms are almost as large as the bedroom. Bed is very comfortable and quiet. Nice lighting too.

Lots of dinning options on the Rocks and Wharf area. About a 10 minute walk. Try the restaurants near the Hyatt hotel. There is Australian, italian and Chinese all in a row. All top notch. Look for the cruise terminal. There are some nice bars and dining options inside overlooking the opera house. USA tourists...remember tipping is not required at smaller restaurants that have you order at the counter then they bring it out. Tip max 10% at full service restaurants or where you get good service. They all are well paid!

Luxury hotel in financial district

Stellar first-class service without being overly superficial. Great service from each member of the staff. Loved the pillow menu and dentrifice kits. We got a corner room on the 4th floor that looked like a studio! Would have liked a plasma on the desk and fluffier towels, but loved the bathroom design and the firm mattress. Five minute walk from the Circular Quay (take a ferry to Taronga Zoo or Manly Beach) and the Rocks where you can shop at DFS Galleria or grab a beer. Highly recommend Pancake House, which is about a 200 meter walk.

Take the Cityrail from the airport ($10 for students, $15 for regular) to the Wynard Station, which is a 2 min walk to two min walk to the hotel. It's much faster than any shuttle. Georges Street is also very close and they have the free 555 green/blue buses on the weekends that will take you up and down the city centre to the Queen Victoria Building, World Square and Paddy's Market.
