Cambridge Hotel Sydney

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed at the Cambridge hotel on our return trip to Sydney after traveling around Australia, before we headed back to Los Angeles. The room was a great size. Bathroom was a tad small (counter space, shower space), but manageable. The bed was comfortable, as was the room temperature. Mini bar offering was good, but we didn't buy anything. Wifi was pretty good. We were allowed 3 devices on the network with 10mbps speeds; had to reconfirm wifi every 24hrs. You had to put in a room card to get electricity, which I don't love. We requested 2 cards so we could keep one in the slot. Check in / out was super quick, and I got a chocolate bar with a thank you and my name printed on it when we left!

This hotel experience was excellent. The staff was friendly, and the location is great.

The hotel was great and the staff was super friendly. The location is perfect for those of us that love fun and entertainment since the hotel is right off Oxford Street which has lots of pubs/bars and Crown Street which has all local restaurants.

The hotel is located right off of Oxford street and very close to everything. There is a fitness center and grocery store steps away.

Cambridge hotel is not too far from College Road, the street that leads to Museum, Botanical Garden, and ultimately to Circular Quay.

Stayed in 6 hotels in Australia, this one was by far the best.

very close to the center of the city. rooms are clean and cozy. good value

Excellent location, close to all attractions and public transportations, comfortable bed, staff were very attentive to our needs, allowed us to check in at 6 am when our room was available, will stay at this hotel again and highly recommend this place to friends and family.

everything was good/excellent BUT... i payed for a queen suite with city views and a buffet breakfast??? I was given the 1st floor inside room which looked onto/into a bricked box looking at the other guests frosted bedroom windows you could tell the guests were wearing nothing i bet they did"nt know we could see that and air conditioning units asked about the buffet b/fast the receptionist said it was"nt included, had to show them the receipt again after they lost the 1 i gave upon arrival?? friends stayed at the same hotel on the same night they only paid for a standard room and they got the 12th floor? PLEASE EXPLAIN THAT ONE? will def stay there again but will just book a standard room and we will see what happens. I do not hold O_ BI _Z responsible for the room i got.

Good location, very easy to get around, close to the Central station. Room is nice. Staff was quite helpful

Great location for Oxford street gay clubs and shopping. Right within a few steps to great restaurants, night clubs, and shopping. Stayed for Mardi Gras - perfect location for these events. 30-45 minute walk to Sydney Harbor, Sydney Opera House/Bridge, Sydney botanical gardens. Room was very moderns, comfortable bed wit red sofa love seat, large bathroom, desk, fridge. Hotel has a small indoor pool inside. Has an expensive Italian restaurant inside it and separate room service, Major drawback is there is no free wifi. It is charged by the hour or selected period. There are work stations in the lobby but they are not free either. this was the major downfall that really killed it. The hotel is a dead zone for wireless and it seems the hotel is trying to capitalize on it. 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, ceiling lights, phone chargers etc....will not be powered. becomes difficult when you have multiple people staying in one room. Also need the card to activate the elevator,

Really not what we were expecting. The lobby in the pictures looks cool, hip and modern but you get to the rooms and they are very old, concrete walls and not very fancy at all. Pros were that it had a little wet bar area, the location and our room had a balcony. Cons were the poor wifi, overall quality of the rooms, old bathrooms in need of updating, sloooooowwww elevators, there was also construction going on in the building next door which wasn't pleasant (they could have warned us about that prior to booking-not at check-in).

The hotel is located very close to Oxford St. where there many choices for food, especially Asian, and nice pubs. You can walk to Hyde Park in a few minutes and make it to Darling Harbor in a few more. Also there a train station nearby where you can head towards the Opera House. You are within a few minutes from the Australian Museum, which is certainly worth a visit. So location is a big plus. The amenities are basic, the rooms are a bit on the small size (if you are from the States), the bathrooms are fine. The breakfast in the morning is ok for $14 per person. There is no view. There was also construction when we visited next door but we really did not hear anything. The stuff were very helpful. I think it comes to the price. Everything I saw in Sydney was very expensive so we are not disappointed with what this hotel offered.

Location was not so great, but considering it, the price was reasonable. The staffs were very kind and friendly. The breakfast buffet was pretty good compared to other very expensive hot breakfast options in Sydney.

Cambridge Hotel is in a GREAT location...just off Oxford Street. The room was ok but had no chest of drawers! It had a small hanging closet but no place for anything folded. Also, while I was there the power went off in the building for about 8 hours. ONLY in the hotel. They had some electrical problem. The elevators were still working but nothing else...not even the front desk power.

A friend and I recently stayed at this hotel. Great location for nightlife, shopping, and restaurants. The hotel is close to Oxford street, a very trendy and eclectic area. We had a blast and the room was perfect. This would be a great one for mardi gras!

The pictures posted on the website are a little deceiving. The rooms are lot smaller than American hotels. But, they were conviently located and the price was better than most of the others in Sydney. If you're planning on doing a lot of exploring and not spend a lot of time in your hotel, this is just the right place.

The room is small and clean. But the noise of lift and outside footstep is very loud.

Staff very helpful regarding all aspects of stay, ie check-in, out, directions around area, booking day trips, being genuinely interested in your stay.

You pay a lot for very little. Everything is extra. A bucket of Ice, Internet service,converter, conenental breakfast,everything.

Dear Whitney, What a lovely review! Thank you for choosing the Cambridge Hotel and also for taking your time to share such a positive review about us. I’m glad you enjoyed the various elements of your stay; from our great location along with your spacious and comfortable room. It’s great to hear your experience with us exceeded your expectations; from the high quality of our furnishings to the standard of service we strive to provide. I'm sorry to hear that you felt that your bathroom was on the small side. Due to the shape of the hotel some of the bathrooms can differ in size. It’s always pleasing to hear that our staff and service exceeds our guest’s expectations. I was delighted to read that you enjoyed the personalised chocolate upon checkout and passed on your feedback to our wonderful staff. It is guests like you that keeps us striving to give our guest a stay that we hope will leave them with fond memories of their time spent in Sydney. We are pleased this didn’t dampen your stay too much and we do hope that we will be seeing you again when you are next visiting Sydney. Warm Regards,
