Great location, tiny room.

Would not recommend Sun, Nov 25, 2012
The location and the lobby were unbeatable for the price. However, the room was extremely tiny and the bed took up almost all of the walking space in the room. The bathroom was just big enough to turn around. The elevators in the hotel also appeared to break down a few times while we were there for 4 nights. All in all, the place was clean though so for the price, I would most likely stay there again, I just can't say that I'd really go out of my way to recommend it to someone.

4 star building, 2 star rooms

Would not recommend Fri, Nov 23, 2012
Old converted building. Bathroom tiny, noisy plumbing can hear water in adjacent rooms; only one window looking out of always-noisy airshaft, so no view and must be kept closed. Decent climate control. Decent wifi, which room card says must be paid for but they gave it to me free. Staff ranges from friendly to surly. Decent breakfast in stately dining room; did not try dinner. A bit hard to find as entrance is small and major sign says it is a masonic lodge. Location great for upscale shopping; 20 minute walk to Circular Quay.

Dining

Bistro Papillion, on Clarence Street, about 10 minute walk. Classic French home cooking very well done with nice staff. Book ahead on busy nights.

Great Hotel

Would recommend Sat, Oct 13, 2012
This is an older hotel in the heart of the city, the rooms are small but very clean and comfortable. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. Only bad this is no help for luggage and cafe and dining rooms not open enough hours.

Sydney City break

Would recommend Wed, Apr 18, 2012
Had a very pleasant stay over our 4 nights. Location,staff & room cleanliness were excellent. Room was a touch on the small side & with adjoining building there was no natural light into room. Hotel reception, lounge & bar area very pleasing with olde world feature. Overall we were happy with the hotel & would use it again.

Great Location in City Centre

Would recommend Mon, Mar 19, 2012
If you are heading to Sydney and planning on spending the majority of your time in the hotel room, the Castlereagh Boutique isn't for you. If you're looking for a great place to in Sydney's City Centre to set up a base of operations for exploring the city you'd be hard pressed to find somewhere better. The Castlereagh is about a 5 minue walk from the Town Hall, St James, Martin Place, Museum train stations and the main shopping areas of Castlereagh Street. Its a 20-25 minute walk to Circular Quay and Sydney Opera House. If you're on a budget or missing the States there are 2 Subways, a McDonalds, Starbucks and a host of Australian eatries within minutes. I would certainly stay there again.

Time saver

The first chance you get go to the Sydney Visitor Centre in the Rocks or Darling Harbour. Its jammed packed with all kinds of useful information from bus schedules to day trip planning tools. If you're planning Sydney's public transportation the Vistor Centre can help you decide if a MyMulti pass is right for you.

Good value, close to Central Business District

Would recommend Wed, Mar 14, 2012
Stayed here 3 nights. Decor is a little dated, but clean. My bathroom was very small which was fine for solo me, but that may be an issue for larger parties. The location is convenient: within walking distance of major tourist sites, numerous shopping galleries, and even Darling Harbour if you're reasonably fit. I didn't try the breakfast, so "no comment" there. Other hotels closer-in were more pricey on such short notice. So C-R is a good value.

Shopping hint

Woolworths for groceries is 2 blocks away, as is CitiCorp ATM (if relevant).

Good location

Would recommend Sun, Mar 4, 2012
Room was small with a full size bed. Room and hotel were very clean. No view from room but window can be opened. Hotel is very convienent to public transportation but yet on a quiet street. Several inexpensive and good places to eat within a block away. If I was spending alot of time in my room, I wouldn't stay there because of room size ,but it is a good place to sleep and get out to see the sights. Room wifi was free. Overall good value.

Money saver

The public transportation ticket is a good choice if you want to get out of Sydney. It covers ferries, trains and buses. Just riding the ferries is a good way to take in the great harbour views.

Nice Enough

Would recommend Mon, Feb 6, 2012
This was a nice place. Very small rooms but I didn't get it for the hotel as much as for the area and price. It is about 30 minutes walk to the Opera House and about 20 to 30 from China town.

The staff was courteous, friendly. The room was quite small, but completely sufficient for the two of us. Very comfortable bed. The windows open fully providing fresh air. If needed, air conditioning was available. It was a great base of operation for our five day Sydney visit which we loved.
