Great location

The hotel was centrally located, easy to walk places or hop on the metro. There were several cafes and convenience stores within a few blocks. The shower was the best I have ever used by far, amazing water pressure and massage setting. The hotel bar was nice and had decent happy hour specials. The cost of breakfast was expensive, but no more expensive than everything else in Sydney. Overall was a good value.

Swissotel Sydney

This is a great hotel within walking distance to most of Sydney attractions and sites. However, the area in experiencing a construction boom, specifically with several retail centers either being developed or retrofitted/renovated. Easy access to public transportation.

Location, location, location!

Our stay was for four nights, and everything was fantastic. All of the personnel were caring, conscientious, courteous, and polite; they went out of their way to help. The location is perfect. This was our first trip to Sydney, and seeing the sights, going to the opera, shopping, and finding nearby public transportation were easily accomplished. If/When we return, we will stay here again.

Great Location in the center of downtown

The hotel has all that we required for our stay. The location was an easy walk to the Rocks, Darling, Oxford area and shopping. It is located above a Meyer dept store and has a very limited street level footprint so it is easy to miss upon arrival.
