Excellent location - Comfortable

This hotel has an excellent location to the Opera House and The Rocks. The heart of Sydney's entertainment and restaurants were just steps in any direction from the front of the hotel. Being close to the night and weekend markets at The Rocks was an added bonus.

Avoid the expensive restaurant and drink service offered by the hotel by purchasing snacks and drinks at the nearby convenience store just down the hill from the hotel. Each floor of the hotel has a working ice machine dispenser.

Great location

The hotel was in a fantastic location for us. Just a few minutes walk from Circular Quay and the Opera House, it was a great place to start each day in Sydney. The concierge staff was friendly and shared some helpful hints and dinner recommendations. The room we had was large and comfortable.We got a great deal on[...] which made the experience all the better.

Exceptional Value - Old Style Elegance

You can't get any closer to the Opera House in old style elegant accomodations. . . period!!! We also spent 2 nights in the Intercontinental Hotel (also excellent but larger) immediately next door on the upslope side. [...] The 9th floor (10 story hotel) room was excellent, facing the botanical garden and with an Opera House view from the balcony. Large room. Large bathroom - light gray marble everyhere - large mirrorred wall - separate shower and bath - toilet enclosed behind shuttered door - double lavatory sinks with fine fixtures and ample liquids - 110 volts for shavers - plenty of towels - robes. Closet inclued hair drier, iron & ironing board slippers. Lots of electrical outlets.The staff greets you with a smile every time you enter or exit. They were extremely helpful and cheerful. We did not eat at their restaurant or bars choosing the more trendy spots on the Circular Quay.Parking is very limited in Sydney and very expensive. The Stamford offers valet parking at the front door at 45 AUD or Self Parking a very short walk on the sidewalk around the corner is 35 AUD per day for multiple entry but you won't want to take the car out uless you are sure you can find parking at your destination. The Circular Quay district offers everything you will need with a very short walk (less than 100 yards) down the moderate hill. Circular Quay (vert close) gives easy access to all forms of transportation except airport. Cab fare to the airport was only 41 AUD (far less than a rental car and parking fees)only a few dollars more than the super shuttle and wll worth the extra.

Great Location

Sir Stamford is in a great location to get to what I think is the hub of Sydney, Circular Quay. The staff was very helpful in terms of restaurant suggestions and transportation. The room is nice and clean. The hotel has a bit of a worn feel to it, but not to a point where it looks unkept. Would definitly recommend.

Classy hotel, great location.

Hotel is in a great location, just a short walk from Circular Quay, where you have access to ferry, train and bus services. Circular Quay (and nearby Rocks) has many shops, restuarants and cafes and is immediately adjacent to the Sydney Opera House...all withing easy walking distance. Hotel room was pretty much standard, maybe slightly larger than most, with a nice, spacious bathroom...as I would expect in a 5-star hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the concierge. Borrowed an umbrella a few times, just in case. In general, the hotel could be described by some people as stately and dignified, and by other people as old fashioned and stuffy. Either way, we found it very comfortable and convenient and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Take the bus or ferry to Darling harbour, just the other side of the city. It offers nice attractions like the Aquarium and also a great selection of restuarants. Hot chocolate at the Lindt Chocolate Cafe was delicious!

Ok Hotel

Sydney is expensive - the Sir Stamford provides adequate and above average accommodation at an acceptable price. Pool is outside and is small as are the fitness facilities.

Great location

Hotel was clean, friendly staff, and ideally located about two blocks from Circular Quay. We walked down to the Quay every day - you could catch a bus, take a ferry ride, take a cruise, dine, and walk to the Opera House and, of course, see Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Just walk down to Circular Quay - you'll find all kinds of recreational activities. Cruising, ferry out to Watsons Bay, Darling Harbour, and many more. Walk to the Rocks area and go to the Discovery Museum to find out informative information on the history of the Rocks area.
