Best value ever!

Amazing room! Amazing location! Very clean and our room was much more spacious than other reviews described. The blankets are a bit rough and the walls are a bit thin but no other complaints! The staff were very courteous and helpful. Castlereagh Boutique Hotel is definitely a hidden gem in Sydney. Best value for cost!!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Hyde Park is just two blocks away and the Opera House and Sydney Harbor are all about a 25 minute walk. The fish market is also about a 25 minute (brisk) walk as well!

Lovely old hotel right in the heart of great shopping

What a great find, this lovely old hotel was located within easy walking distance to fine shopping, the town hall and other amenities. The staff was most accommodating. Sophie was a jewel of the first order. The renovated dining room had its own charm. I would recommend this lovely space to anyone interested in a step back in time.

Last reasonable priced hotel at the perfect location

Hotel was very great value for the location!! Right in the middle of CBD (central Business Disctrict) - that's aussie for downtown. Walking distance to everywhere! Breakfast available for $15, which is a great deal in sydney where everything is mega expensive! Highly recommend!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

BUY THE BREAKFAST VOUCHERS FOR $15! IT'S A STEAL, GIVEN EVERYWHERE IS VERY EXPENSIVE.

shocked, it's not a 4 star!

the previous reviews before I decided to get this hotel were so overrated...the lobby looks like a four star, but once you enter the room, you'll be disappointed. Yes, it's near some of Sydney's attraction, but once you get to your hotel after a long day's travel, you're so not looking forward to get a good night's rest and sleep. Room+bathroom are so tiny (considering that I myself is a petite person (under 5'), I find it so small! They need to refurbish the interior (like carpeting, bed mattress, etc).

good priced hotel for the good location

Pros: The hotel is located in the center of Sydney, free 555 bus to the harbour bridge and the opera house (less than 10 mins ride). Two blocks away the main george st. Everything very convenient. Cons: The hotel is pretty old styled and they don't have options for 2 bed.

Exceptional location and price

Excellent, quiet location close to everything in the area. Price was very reasonable and staff friendly. While internet access is available for a daily fee, free internet is avaialable at several local eateries. Hotel staff provided access to a printer for creating boarding pass. Would definetly use the hotel if I return to Sydney.
