Amazing Hotel, close to aquarium

This was one of the nicer hotels I have stayed at. Got a great view of the city, wonderful, comfortable bed and pillows, huge bathroom, and location close to everything. Medium walk to the Opera House.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

We tried to get tickets online, but it charges a service fee, and negated the cost savings, so I think that's pretty dumb.

Great Location, Great Price

First trip to Sydney. Hotel is 5mins away from St. James Train Station. 2mins away from Monolrail Station. Central location to Sydney Harbour or Darling Harbor. Hotel Lobby on 8th Floor, private and quiet. Lobby bar and restaurant lovely and good value for money. Staff very friendly and profesional. Laundry facility in Hotel. Beautiful clean room and bathroom. Theatre across the street. Cafe next door for light breakfast. Losts of restaurants at the Rocks or Darling Harbour. Plenty to do and see. Great Vacation

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to Paddy's Market, China town on the monorail. Get the Day pass and tour all the different locations and use the coupons at the restaurants. Great underground shopping that leads to the Queen Victoria building. Good souvenier stores at Darling Harbor and Quays.

Swissotel in Sydney

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The location was convenient, the rooms sparkling clean with crisp linens and a very helpful staff.

Would Definitely Stay Here Again!!!

Here are some highlights from my stay at the Swissotel on Market Street in Sydney: 1)Location: The Swissotel is right in the heart of Sydney's CBD. Circular Quay is only a 10-15 minute walk (ferries to Taronga Zoo depart from here). 2)Rooms: My room was very clean, but the bed was VERY firm. I prefer a softer bed, so this was disappointing for me. The ~26" LCD TV had all the basics and more. 3)In-Room Internet: A big disappointment. The Swissotel charges ~25AUD/24 hours for Internet in guest room, and the speed is very slow (about 0.5Mb/sec). TIP: You can get a free Internet connection in the lobby/restaurant/bar area after check-in. This is achieved through a code a guest gets with their room key. 4)Pool/Exercise Area/Spa: The pool at the Swissotel is excellent! It is heated and is suitable for laps. Also, there is a hot tub out by the pool. The exercise room is small but adequate with 2 stationary bikes, 2 treadmills, and an elliptical trainer. I would definitely stay here again the next time I am in Sydney if I get the same great rate from Orbitz. When I booked in June 2009, Orbitz was running a special at this hotel which could not be beat!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

BIG TIP: If you need to get to/from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport, take the AirportLink train to/from St. James station. St. James is only three blocks away from the hotel, and the cost one-way to/from the airport is 15.20 AUD (a return ticket is discounted). Also, the AirportLink train runs around every 15 minutes. I took a taxi to the Swissotel from Sydney's International terminal and wound up paying a tremendous sum!

Consistently Good

Consistently good service from Swissotel and excellent location in the Sydney Central Business District. Short walk from the botanical gardens, bridge, and Darling Harbour. Staff was efficient and the facility was modern and clean. Outdoor pool area was nice but weather was too cold to enjoy. Only issue with this location is the use of elevators. In order to get to the lobby from the main entrance on Market Street, one must take an elevator. From these elevators one must cross the lobby and use a seperate bank of elevators to access the rooms. Just enough delay to be a nuisance, especially during morning or afternoon check-in/out times. Did not eat or drink at the hotel bars/restaurants.

great location

loved the location, 5 minute walk to darling harbour, 10 minute walk to circular quay, 2 minute walk to hyde park, right next to the tower, a quick walk through the QVB to the town hall rail station pitt st market is currently being renovated, so there was some extra noise and construction vehicles, but it looks like the future development should be gorgeous

Unbeatable location for the price

The hotel was cost effective and the place was right down town close to train station, legal office, the waters, etc.

excellent hotel, some unexpected charges

The swissotel has a great location, fabulous breakfasts and very nice rooms. There is no indication in your room however that there is a charge for local calls and a local call to a cell phone cost over $20. I think that is excessive.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Darling Harbour, a vibrant and entertaining area of Sydney, is a short but beautiful 5-minute walk from the hotel. The area is not as popular as the Sydney standards, but is not to be missed if you are in town for more than a day.
