Capitol Square Hotel Sydney

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

close to many eateries, mainly Chinese. but with a choice of Malayasian and Australian. Quiet room with ensuite Not overly impressed with Buffet breakfast. Short walk from Central. or short light rail trip. Room had 2 single beds, very clean with TV & WiFi.

Location id very very convenient, right next to Chinatown in Sydney. Close walk to Town Hall or Central Station, Starbucks Coffee right down stairs as is lots of restaurants. Rooms can be serviced daily if you wanted. They will store your luggage for free before/after checkin/out. The hotel room itself is dated, the bathroom in particular needs work.

My partner and i had a 1 night stay to see Kinky Boots. The hotel is a easy walk to most things. And there are lots of local eaterys on the door step. Basic hotel but clean. Great base for people wanting to sight see around sydney CBD and only a short drive from the airport

This hotel is located next to the Capitol Theatre. We had the $15 buffet breakfast here up on Level 2. There were some cereals and a couple of bowls of tinned fruit. There was toast and the usual hot fare of eggs, sausages, bacon and tomatoes. The coffee was ok. Whilst it was welcomingly filling - give it a miss if you really want something scrumptious.

While the room was adequate enough, the Asian front desk staff was consistently rude and unhelpful. I would not stay here again. There are plenty of hotels in this price range in just as decent locations around Sydney so as not to have to bother with this place again.

Friendly staff checked us in, room had lovely new carpet, curtains and appliances. Bathroom tiles need to be re grouted to get rid of the mould and the bath tap dripped constantly. Toilet seat must be 100 years old but the bed seemed fairly new and comfy. Decor needs some fine tuning, tv in front of the mirror, and the hair dryer cords not long enough to let you style the right side in front of the mirror! Location is awesome! 2 mins walk from Chinatown and probably over 100 assorted restaurants/ eateries within a 5 min walk. Immediately next door to Capitol theatre and 1 min walk to light rail to take you to Central or Darling harbour. Would definitely recommended this hotel as a great location, room was overall pretty good.

I've stayed here 3 or 4 times and for me it's always the best choice for convenience. The rooms are large enough for a single or couple and the bathrooms are a good size. Always ask for a room at the rear as it's away from the street (and the lift!!). I once had a room next to the lift and it was a terrible noise - especially when the theatre people all come home at 10.30 and the lift never stops its excruciating rumble). I had asked for a rear room, but was allocated a "lift" room - but they immediately moved me to the rear - far-left - probably the quietest room in the hotel. Great. It was 3rd or 4th floor I think. I've always had a good stay here and it's my first choice for any location round the Central Station area.

I stay at this place a number of times now everytime has not disappointed me at all staff are nice and friendly very good customer service and easy checkin good hotel to stay at close to city and china town and good shopping around.

Polite, helpful staff. Good value and central location. Room 216 clean bedding and towels. Bathroom could do with freshen up - bit of mould and needs a paint. Tiny bath. Facilities basic but adequate. Currently they are renovating level 5 so may be worth requesting when finished next week. Breakfast $14 if purchased night before. Simple tasty buffet with cooked breakfast, toast, cereals and little fruit and yoghurt. This room was pretty quiet.

The Capitol Square Hotel is located in Campbell Street right near the corner of George Street Haymarket, very central to the CBD. It is staffed by really great and helpful people who did everything they could to make my stay there a very memorable one. The rooms are well maintained and immaculate and are of good size. A real pleasure to come back to after a day out and about. Early morning reminder calls, booking taxis all no trouble for the staff no matter what time of day or night. Everything attended to efficiently and to your satisfaction. My stay there was most enjoyable and I intend to stay there again. I thank the staff most sincerely for the way they looked after me and urge you to come and stay, you will be glad you did!
