Nice room

We paid a bit extra for a 'bay view room'. Very light and a nice view #small window# of a bit of the harbour and boats in the bay. Great location with excellent restaurant choice nearbye. 7 minutes walk from Kings Cross station and great Saturday markets near the fountain.

Handy for train travel

The hotel is ideally located just 5 minutes walk from King's Cross Station. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable.There are many different styles and shapes of rooms but this was standard double. The room was spacious and had a separate kitchen sink area with fridge and tea/coffee facilities. Fast checkin and checkout and good security-the room keycard also opens the front door for late night entry. Many food outlets and convenience stores nearby that are open late or all night

Excellent, economic, decent and convenient accommodation in the heart of the city!!!

My wife and I booked our vacation in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia during an extremely busy period. In spite of all the hotels throughout the city being saturated with Rotarians traveling to the 2014 Rotary International Conventions which include the DeVere Hotel we were fortunate to find a suite there. Initially we were a bit hesitant because the hotel was only at the level of a 3 star and had preferred a 4 or 5 star hotel, but eventually we confirmed our booking and hoped for the best. Upon arrival we were attended promptly, but with a slight delay. Apparently during the booking with the travel company an error was made and it went undetected by us until days before traveling, long after the period to make changes without penalty. We explained the situation to the front desk clerk who referred us to the Manager who listened to our situation (the travel company did not take into account our travel period and the difference the time change. They booked the first day of accommodation to start on the same day we left our country, but our arrival was not until two days later and they booked our departure from the hotel a day earlier). Without confusion the Manager made the adjustment. Not being able to give a refund of caused, but instead he gave us a voucher for a breakfast buffet for the total time of our stay and adjusted the date of our departure without penalty. Our stay at the hotel was very accommodating and we totally enjoyed our time there. The room was very clean and the room service was extremely efficient. When the maid see the do not disturb sign on the door she would put a note under the door to ensure that we know she was there and to let the front desk know if we left the sign on in error. This was followed up with call from room service. The hotel have a dining room on the fifth level that serves a generous breakfast buffet which we found to be very tasty and delicious. The hotel also have a restaurant for fine dining on the ground floor level which serves dinner daily. The hotel is situated with in walking distance to everything. For example: the shops, restaurants, parks, museums, tours, the train station is along one of the city's common bus routes which includes several different buses. Car rental is almost not ever needed. The busses and trains are very efficient and reliable. The upkeep of the hotel is great and I think it's with in accordance with a three star hotel. The security level at the hotel and throughout the city is very high. CCTV cameras are everywhere and the police station is less than five minutes walking distance away. We felt safe while walking everywhere we went. The things I did not like about the hotel was the internet was not free and I think it was very expensive at a rate of about $15.00 per day or $4.00 per hour. I would recommend that the hotel highlight the cost for the breakfast buffet and dinner(min. Cost) on their website to ensure guest do not mistakenly think it's included. This would allow guest to budget for meals in advance. I think the internet cost should be reduced and they should allow to accommodate more than one device connected at a time (a minimum of 2).

Enquire in advance about the tours and book in house in advance. Also enquire into the cost of the breakfast and dining in house and book in advance. If you are traveling with children or which to save on meals book a room with a kitchen so that you can

Unexpected Happiness

I booked this hotel because it was within walking distance of the Navel base. I did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Foyer is very welcoming, neat & tidy. Room was tired however bed was most comfortable and every thing worked well in the room. I would come back if needed

One night

Hotel location is great in the heart of Kings Cross, my single room was very small, slightly bigger than the bathroom. So unless you can stand the heat in the small room you have to sleep with the floor level AC on. Not a room you want for a longer than one night. It's an old building with old décor, very basic.

an ok stay in the city

room always clean, room 111 staff always friendly, had to move 2x in 5 days of visit... no view at all in this room. 1st move room next to lift and too noisy (i was in a queen superior tho, so a bad position for the best room they offer) moved along corridor to double superior but no offer of discount, room again was nice no view again tho! but app no rooms as bank hols w/e. stayed in room 107 for 3 nights but the sat night had awful neighbours - walls were thin, arguing all night, so noisy, no sleep.. next morning moved to 103, slept better, still double superior as no queen left .. view was bit better but still not worthy of queen superior room quality. walked past reception and a couple were offered an upgrade to bay view window even tho i had been told there was no rooms free with view or superior... staff were always helpful with moving and apologetic (even gave me a btl of wine as apology to help me sleep if i had trouble again) .... would i stay again .. prob not, but then again i wouldnt be in sydney again anyway
