Awesome dowtown Sydney hotel

We had a terrific experience at the Amora Jamison. The hotel is in the perfect location, just minutes walking distance from most of the major Sydney attractions. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the rooms were nice and big. Our bed was very comfortable. I'd stay here again for sure.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Both Sydney Harbour and Darling Harbour are 5 minute walks from the hotel. Save yourself the cab fare and just walk.

Fabulous Hotel - Great Location

The Amora Hotel, located in the Central Business District (CBD), in Sydney was a very pleasant surprise! With a great reputation in the city as a 5-star hotel, my stay there was 5-star as well.

Check out The Emperor's Choice Chinese Restaurant just a short walk around the corner. Located below another store, it's a hidden gem serving up great food.

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.

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.

Best Hotel in Sydney

The staff was wonderful and the room was great. The location is spot on, walking distance to both the Opera House and Darling Habor is about 10 mins. Taking the train to and from both the domestic and international airports is very easy, it drops you off a block from the hotel at the Wynyard station. You can buy a weekly pass for bus, trains and ferry's for 59.00 dollars.

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.

If you're there on a weekend, get they're breakfast special - it's excellent and there's not much else close by.

Amora Jamison Hotel

Well located within walking distance of Circular Quay. We had a great room on the "Jamison Club" level, which included club lounge facilities: continental breakfast, evening canapes and drinks. In-room broadband internet was included, but there was no wi-fi available. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms with separate shower and tub, spacious and clean. We have stayed at this hotel a number of times in the past, and it just keeps getting better. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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!

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

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.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

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.
