Lofty rooms with water views on the Woolloomooloo Wharf

Retaining original features of the historical wharf structure--including exposed timber beams and black pipes--BLUE Sydney has infused the elderly building with a dash of serious cool. Coveted loft rooms are apartment-size with five-star amenities and boutique style. The award-winning Water Bar draws Sydney starlets, business executives and jetsetters who sip fanciful cocktails by candlelight. The Wharf at Woolloomooloo never looked so glam.

Highlights
  • Fabulous address on Woolloomooloo Wharf
  • Hip bar attracts celebs and socialites
  • Loft accommodations with giant windows
Rooms

Dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows covered with dual blinds feature shimmering Pacific or city views from the hotel's 100 rooms. Standard room interiors in shades of stone and sand are sparse, but do not lack luxury. The hotel's 36 loft rooms are worth the splurge with high ceilings, plush couches and deep tubs. Emerald throws, pillows and glass panels pay homage to the hotel's name while deep timber beams and exposed black pipes nod to the building's heritage. Hotel quarters feature high thread count linens, pillow-top mattresses, Wi-Fi and LCD TV.

Features

BLUE Sydney, a member of the Leading Small Hotels of the World, knows how to deliver amenities and experience. The hotel features a state-of-the-art fitness center and indoor lap pool, plus six restaurants in the wharf complex. The award-winning Water Bar has a cinematic setting populated by lovely patrons who sip colorful martinis on silver ottomans. The entire property features Wi-Fi.

One Night Treat

Came over to Australia for my girlfriend's birthday, who is in Australia for 12 months. Booked this as a treat for us on my last night and initial impressions were excellent, friendly greeting at the hotel entrance and directed to reception for check in. We hadn't rushed there, it was 3pm so expected to go straight to our room but were informed it wasn't ready so we had to wait approximately 30 minutes before being given our room key. During this time our cases were left unattended at the bottom of the stairs that lead up to reception. The room was excellent, everything we could have hoped for. Only slight negative being a large cobweb on the beams near one of the windows; shouldn't have been missed by housekeeping. The bed was very comfortable and we even found the pillows to be supportive, something that seems to be lacking everywhere else we've stayed. On our way out for the evening we enquired about a transfer to the airport the following morning. The young lady appeared very helpful advising us as to what time to book it for due to the anticipated volume of traffic and checking if it was for both of us. She confirmed that it was done for us. After a really comfortable night we left the room and went to check out. Again we were greeted in a friendly manner before going to reception and we were told that they would look out for the transfer provider and let us know when they arrived. After waiting until 15 minutes after the supposed arrival time we checked with reception; they looked and couldn't find any record of the booking, very disappointing. We had to get a taxi as the two companies they use couldn't get to us in time. Not a great end to my stay and soured my opinion of the hotel somewhat. If they can sort out silly problems like that then they are on course for perfect scores because the hotel premises are superb. It's only because of the room not being ready and the poor performance from the lady who didn't book the transfer that the staff rating is so low.

Can you say, "pillow menu"??

Stayed for two nights with a few girlfriends. We had a harbour view loft room. Perfect amount of room, great service, and a lovely view. Inside is very funky/swanky/hip - worth a look. Would definitely stay here again. Had a really lovely bar, but was empty at night time.

Wonderful location and gorgeous views!

What a FANTASTIC place to stay! Twenty minute walk through the Botanical Gardens to get to the Opera House, and about five minutes form heaps of yummy restaurants. Hotel is absolutely lovely! Stayed in one of the loft suites with a marina view, and would go back in a heartbeat. Perfect size for me and my two girlfriends. Bar looked really lovely, though it was pretty quiet. Staff was extremely friendly, and very accommodating.

Perfect hotel on Sydney

The location in the water was perfect. The view of the city from our window was great. The proximity of the botanical gardens was wonderful. Loved the restaurants around and the running paths everywhere!

Blue Hotel after cruise stay

The Blue Hotel is great, a short distance from the center of Sydney. a lot of places to have lunch and dinner right outside the hotel. The rooms are great and the bedding is very comfortable. Next time we are in Sydney we will definitely stay at the Blue Hotel again.

perfect hotel

From the very beginning when I was helped out of our airport shuttle the staff could not have been more helpful.They were friendly with genuine smiles and very kind.It was so nice to be treated as a friend with no expectation of a tip(tipping is not the practice in Australia)They answered all our questions and I never felt rushed or like there was anything that was too much trouble.My daughter mentioned she loved the big bath but had no bath salts and they sent some up right away. Wonderful beds and pillows. The location is terrific with great restaurants below along the wharf.It is right beside the Domaine and Botanical gardens and I only wish it wasn't pouring rain.
