Great location and breathtaking harbour side views

We had booked 2 rooms with harbour side views and requested early check in if possible. We got to hotel at 8 and were greeted very well by the reception staff. Although rooms were not ready, they promised to get them ready as soon as they could. We were given keys to gym so we could freshen ourselves after a long flight. We left to do some sightseeing and returned after 12. Rooms were not ready yet but within 15 mins or so we got the rooms. Rooms were next to each other on the 18th floor with breathtaking views. Rooms were large with nice bathroom and all amenities one would need eg. Kettle, iron, fridge etc. A short while later, there was a knock on the door and we were given a complimentary bottle of champagne as the trip was to celebrate my mums 70th birthday. Not sure how they got that information. We had a perfect stay there for 4 nights. We didn't have breakfast included but there are plenty of eateries nearby including a supermarket next door with a coffee shop. The breakfast in hotel was quite expensive. Wifi is free through the hotel which is great. There is no swimming pool or proper bar although the small restaurant on ground floor does serve some alcoholic drinks. Check out was brilliant as the concierge picked up our luggage and ordered us a cab to take us to the cruise port and loaded the car. When we got down, we were all set to go. Would highly recommend this hotel for its great location( easy walk to sydney harbour, shopping, darling harbour and less than 5 mins to kings cross area, also many restaurants nearby on Stanley street) and breathtaking harbour views on high floors.

Sydney, Australia

Location is good, bus stop for Hop on/off tour bus is right across from the hotel. My room was medium size, stained carpet and old furniture. My queen size mattress was made from two twin size mattresses, so you have to sleep on one side only, otherwise you will feel a gap in between. Good cleaning service, free WIFI, good customer service. Overall, this hotel was not bad.

first Visit to Sydney

To be honest i couldn't find fault with the hotel it served it's purpose, but I was very disappointed to learn that no shuttle bus service was available from the airport to the hotel, even though e - bookers advertising for the hotel stated that there was! Having flown from Ireland, the last thing i wanted to do was walk up and down the concourse looking for the shuttle bus. I had to resort to a taxi and was charged an extortionate price. (Aust dollars 54). When leaving the hotel for the airport to meet a 09.25 flight, the concierge stated that the shuttle bus service was unreliable and I would be better off getting a taxi. At least he only charged me Aust dollars 36! Shame really, because i only picked the hotel for this service!

Just what's needed

Good hotel in very convenient location for most of the usual areas tourists want downtown. At first sight the neighbourhood is not brilliant but the hotel is only just down from King's Cross which is much better than it used to be and has handy shops and restaurants. The Boulevard is only just one street away from a whole line of restaurants with excellent range of choices and reasonably priced. The pub across the road is also very good. Brilliant staff and good quiet environment. Used by flight crews so it has to be good choice. No reservations, for the price this is an excellent choice for access to CBD

Great location…centrally located!

The Sydney Boulevard Hotel is a really nice, centrally located hotel in the heart of Darlinghurst/Potts Point. It's a short 15-20 minute walk from there to Circular Quay or a 5 minute subway/train ride. It's a short walk to the Sydney CBD. The rooms are clean, comfortable, well equipped and if you have a harbor side view, you'll see the Botanical Gardens, Opera House and Harbor Bridge from your window. Staff was super friendly and helpful and very receptive whenever we needed help. The only annoying thing was the cards for your hotel room and elevator access, they seemed to always go bad after a day and we would have to get new ones. Other than that, all around great time and would stay there again!

Head down Crown St. which runs right by the hotel. It goes into the Darlinghurst neighborhood, which is ripe with amazing restaurants and coffee shops. You won't go hungry if you just wander a few steps from your hotel.

Situated in between all the main areas but beware hilly walks

The hotel is fairly well situated to explore all of the centre of Sydney being around 10 minutes walk of 3 train stations. However, if you find walking difficult, you should be aware that it is situated in a lower level than most of the rest of the city, which we found surprisingly hilly. This means that in every direction the walk was up hill and to both Kings X and Oxford St, very steep. Having said that there are buses that stop outside, but train was our much preferred transport. The hotel is of a good standard and our room on the 6th floor was spacious, with a king sized bed and a decent view of the harbour bridge in the distance. The staff were helpful and courteous and our room was cleaned well daily. They used to have a highly recommended restaurant on the 25th floor but that has now closed and in its place is a very small bistro bar on the ground floor. We ate there one night and had a very pleasant meal but wouldn't want to eat there every night. Overall a very pleasant stay and would definitely recommend if you want access to all of the city, but if only staying a few days and just wanting to do the tourist things, you may be better staying a little closer to the harbours.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are staying a week it's worth getting the weekly travel pass to take advantage of Sydney's excellent transport system. Available from the kiosk by the hotel for A$63 it includes all trains, buses and ferries and even included a 2 hour train journey to the Blue Mountains.

great location for botanical gardens, opera house, harbor

Great location within walking distance to downtown, the botanical gardens, Sydney opera house/bridge, Sydney harbor and oxford street clubs. Rooms are good size. However, if you haven't been to Australia before, realize you must use your room key to turn on power to the room and take the room key out when you leave kills all the power as well. This means your air conditioner, phone chargers etc....will not be powered. becomes difficult when you have multiple people staying in one room and needing multiple keys. Fitness center was small but worked ok. Has steam room and sauna. Weight room lacks equipment but has a great view from the top floor. free water. There are a few restaurants and coffee shops in the lobby. Grocery store access the street as well as several rental car locations. Shuttles available to and from the airport for $14 aud but must be paid in cash.
