Not kid friendly!

I would never recommend this hotel for anyone bringing children. The pool is not heated and so you can't play in it. The room is small. There is noisy construction going on all day. The lobby restaurant poisoned my young daughter by giving her my alcoholic drink and management did nothing to compensate for this nor did they show concern for their grave mistake. Since she drank the drink before I realized, she could have been badly poisoned. The two good points are that the hotel is centrally located and they gave us an early check in.

Central Hotel

Hotel very good central location, not deserving of 5 stars. Room basic but comfortable. Strange - reception area on 8th floor. Breakfast basic (was pulled up to pay for breakfast by restaurant manager and I had to leave breakfast room to go to reception - even though it was in our booking cost - embarassing for us as a family?) Right next to Tower and walking distance to all major attractions.

Stay down the street

This property is far from being 5 star. After a 17 hour flight and hours of delays in customs we were ready for a stiff drink. When we checked in I asked where the ice machine. was and was told down the hall and if there was a problem go to the next floor. Well the ice mach is on the 17th floor but the room key is restricted to your floor only. called room service and after 50 min. no ice so I called again. Eventually went down to the bar in the lobby for ice. This Hotel is an old remodeled re-branded property. There is little frontage on street level, save the concierge's desk. Lobby is on the 8th floor. No towels at the pool, Spa closed on weekends. There is a 5 star down the street with a name beginning with "H", Stay there! You won't be sorry.

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 Sydney (near QVB)

Swissotel is conveniently located just steps away from the best shopping in Sydney, The Queen Victoria Building shopping complex and many other shoppes are within 3 square blocks, including some of the most delectable multi-cultural restaurants. I walked from the hotel to Darling Harbor, the Aquarium, and the Sydney Tower and China Town.
