Great hotel

We stayed for three nights for a family vacation. Have to say the location is perfect since we had spent the first three days at circular quay, and have well explored that area. This location got us closer to the actual CBD as well as other area such as George Street shopping, Darling Harbour, Chinatown, Hyde Park, or QVB (which is right across the street). Thr day we were leaving was a raining day, we decided to go shopping at Myers which is in the sme building. Perfect location. Other thing is that the staffs are super friendly and helpful. Breakfast at tr executive lounge was great, too. Can't ask for more.

Other than the stores on George street, you've got Westfield, QVB, and Myers, within one block of distance.

Quite nice

Functional, attractive and well located, but nothing to really make it memorable. I would certainly stay here again, but wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to make it happen. One complaint- I don't understand why nice hotels feel the need to charge large amounts for wi-fi. That ought to be included for what you pay for the room.

Swissotel Location

The hotel is excellecntly located in the middle of CBD, it is around 20 minutes from the airport by train (then a 5 minute walk from St James Square). It's a 10 minute walk to Darling Harbour, Harbourside and the Star City Casino, a 15 minute walk to; Circular Quay, the Rocks and Central station. The hotel is located within 5 minutes of all the major shopping centres the QV building, the Vicotria Gallery's, Pitt Street mall and David Jones. If you don't mind walking the Swissotel Sydney is the best place to stay, with great staff who will take a personnal interest in you, with a good service, pool and a half decent gym, it is without a doubt if money is not too much of an object, Swissotel Sydney is the best place to stay. By far the bets hotel i've stayed in, and i've been travelling for 5 years all over the world.

The best restaurants are by the quay side at either Darling Harbour or Circular Quay, with both lunch time and dinner specials, Sydney is relatively cheap place to eat as long as you look around.

Sydney holiday

Quite nice. Hotel is above an office complex (starts on the 8th floor) and the ground floor is very nondescript. However, once into the hotel itself all is well. Quiet and clean. The breakfast buffet and all other food services (and bar) are very expensive but the hotel is located in an area with easy access to other options. Also has easy access to all the shopping venues you could ask for.

Don't. Too expensive. Other locations are more reasonable in price and have just as good food.

Location, location, location!

The location was superb in the middle of everything - sightseeing spots, shopping, food, transport, you name it. You could reach all these places by walking for a few minutes.

Expensive amenities, otherwise great experience

The Sydney Swissotel gives guests a five-star experience; the staff respond quickly to any requests, the room was spotless, and almost could be described as spacious. All in all, a fantastic hotel experience. The one big drawback was the cost of amenities. Does it really cost $25 to connect to the Internet for 24 hours? Honestly? Is that necessary? I enjoyed the full breakfast one morning; while good, it was certainly not worth the $35, especially when one can walk out the door, around the corner and find great food at any number of places in the surrounding shopping mecca.

Good value

The location is fantastic and I would stay here again. The staff was very friendly and willing to help. When I emailed asking about transfers to the hotel, they promptly responded with a document detailing my options. I would note that it would be good for travelers if the staff keeps informed of the rules for foreigners trying to get tax back at the airport (i.e. you can go to the customs office Before Checking Bags to get inspected and a stamp. This way you can put your stuff in your luggage, rather than carry it the whole trip because the tax refund center - TRS - is after security.) I carried my purchases because no one knew the procedure, or the rules as to what qualifies for tax back.

Sydney's top restaurants likely book up Before you arrive. Do your homework, or ask the concierge before you travel for recommendations, and then book your restaurants asap.
