Great location for Oxford Street clubs, long walk to sydney icons

Great location for Oxford street gay clubs and shopping. Right within a few steps to great restaurants, night clubs, and shopping. Stayed for Mardi Gras - perfect location for these events. 30-45 minute walk to Sydney Harbor, Sydney Opera House/Bridge, Sydney botanical gardens. Room was very moderns, comfortable bed wit red sofa love seat, large bathroom, desk, fridge. Hotel has a small indoor pool inside. Has an expensive Italian restaurant inside it and separate room service, Major drawback is there is no free wifi. It is charged by the hour or selected period. There are work stations in the lobby but they are not free either. this was the major downfall that really killed it. The hotel is a dead zone for wireless and it seems the hotel is trying to capitalize on it. However, if you haven't been to Australia before, realize you must use your room key to turn on power to the room and take the room key out when you leave kills all the power as well. This means your air conditioner, ceiling lights, phone chargers etc....will not be powered. becomes difficult when you have multiple people staying in one room. Also need the card to activate the elevator,

It wasn't very spectacular...

Really not what we were expecting. The lobby in the pictures looks cool, hip and modern but you get to the rooms and they are very old, concrete walls and not very fancy at all. Pros were that it had a little wet bar area, the location and our room had a balcony. Cons were the poor wifi, overall quality of the rooms, old bathrooms in need of updating, sloooooowwww elevators, there was also construction going on in the building next door which wasn't pleasant (they could have warned us about that prior to booking-not at check-in).

5 days in Sydney

The hotel is located very close to Oxford St. where there many choices for food, especially Asian, and nice pubs. You can walk to Hyde Park in a few minutes and make it to Darling Harbor in a few more. Also there a train station nearby where you can head towards the Opera House. You are within a few minutes from the Australian Museum, which is certainly worth a visit. So location is a big plus. The amenities are basic, the rooms are a bit on the small size (if you are from the States), the bathrooms are fine. The breakfast in the morning is ok for $14 per person. There is no view. There was also construction when we visited next door but we really did not hear anything. The stuff were very helpful. I think it comes to the price. Everything I saw in Sydney was very expensive so we are not disappointed with what this hotel offered.

not bad

Location was not so great, but considering it, the price was reasonable. The staffs were very kind and friendly. The breakfast buffet was pretty good compared to other very expensive hot breakfast options in Sydney.

Great location

Cambridge Hotel is in a GREAT location...just off Oxford Street. The room was ok but had no chest of drawers! It had a small hanging closet but no place for anything folded. Also, while I was there the power went off in the building for about 8 hours. ONLY in the hotel. They had some electrical problem. The elevators were still working but nothing else...not even the front desk power.
