Satisfactory hotel with great location

Overall the hotel was fine. Problems we found with hotel room was there was only one chair in room, so one of us had to sit on bed. Bathroom was small and had very limited space around the sink. Eating at the hotel was very costly. Location was great, you could walk to made attractions.

Purchase your sightseeing trips before you go. This way you plan & know how much you are spending. Expect to spend a considerable amount for food as the the exchange rare for US Dollar is low and food prices are high. However, look around for places with cheaper food items to eat. We did not shop at retail stores because of prices.

This is not a 4 star hotel

I stayed one night. I was checked into a "superior" room.(Not even close) It was smoking. I asked for non-smoking. My next room was older and had dirty carpet, the tv remot didn't work, and the hair dryer died. After looking on line I paid $300 dollars and what fealt like a standard room was going for $170. The service was standard when they had time but the employees were too busy to help sufficiently. I was very disappointed and would not stay at this hotel chain again without extensive positive feedback.

The Menzies Sydney

The hotel was beautiful and located close to Darling Harbor and many other attractions. We were only there for two nights and one day, so we decided to do a day excursion. It included a boat tour of Sydney Harbor while enjoying a buffet lunch. Next we boarded a bus to tour North Sydney. We were lucky to enjoy a short time at the Manly Jazz festival that happened to be that weekend. Finally we ended up at the Tower where we had dinner at the top while enjoying the view of Sydney's night lights. We had a great time!

Great Hotel, Great location

The lobby and rooms were luxurious and spotless. The location is unbeatable (would expect to pay $200 for a similar room in NY or LA)The only problem is the a/c was not working and the weather was unseasonably warm.

Pick up a Sydney Saver brochure at the info desk at the airport. It has coupons for the airport shuttle (door to door for $12 pp) Opera House, Harbor cruise and many other attractions. We estimate it saved us over $200.

Great Location. Good Value

The Menzies is one of the old-charm hotels located in the heart of the city. This used to be the best hotel in Sydney but as time goes by some upgrades are obviously needed. Overall, very friendly staff, unbeatable location--a 15 minute walk from Sydney Opera House--and a good value for money make this hotel a great find in such a busy and expensive Metropolis as Sydney.

great location

The Menzies is centrally located within walking distance of most of the sights. The rail station was just across the street (underground) so transportation to and from the airport is quick and easy. The hotel is clean, the room was relatively large and the bathroom was nice. My room faced the interior courtyard so there was nothing to look at except walls but the location and price made this a hotel I would certainly recommend.

Good location

The Menzies was located right outside the train stop from the airport and it was within walking distance of Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. The hotel was nice except for all of the smokers crowding the entry. This worked very well for us.
