3 or a 4 depending on the price. I had a good price for this trip which made it reasonable, I have seen prices for other dates >$300 and heading to $400 and at those prices, you would question the value. They are very basic apartment rooms but still have what most people would need - doubt though if the...

Apartment was on the 28th floor. Was so amazing to be able to be amongst the Sydney skyline and still see the harbour each time we looked out. Location was brilliant. Key sites were walkable or in easy reach of public transport. Hotel was clean and had all the facilities we needed. There were 6 of us in the apartment...

We only stayed one nite, but it was very enjoyable and we highly recommend this hotel. We've stayed in other Swiss Hotels (in China) and like those, this one did not disappoint. The room was a suite, very large with laundary room, two baths, kitchen, living room, and bedroom. Exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated with a great view of the...

Loved this hotel - great location, friendly and helpful staff and very comfortable room. We had a studio apartment with a balcony - the studio was quite large and included a kitchen and lounge area. The room and bathroom were very clean. Beds and pillows were comfortable. The pool area looked very inviting! I wish we could have stayed longer...

Great location, close to train, supermarket, and lots of city attractions. Quite noisy at times during the night. The room was spacious and had good facilities, but needed some maintenance to the squealing sliding door and water hammer in the pipes. The cleaning and maintenance staff were particularly friendly. Good aircon. Spacious bathroom.

We had four nights here and booked based upon its location in between Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. We had a one bedroom apartment on floor 8 overlooking an old church which was nice. The room was spacious and came with a washing machine in the batroom. The standard of decor was poor with marks on the carpet and chips...

The apartments are really well located and very spacious. We were happy with our 8 night stay overall but felt some improvements could easily be made to lift this establishment into the 4 star bracket. The price we paid for the space, comfort and location was fair and the hotel provided ample towels, bedding, coffee supplies throughout our stay. Our...

This is a great location. It is on the upper side of a hill, but still within walking distance to all sight seeing attractions. Every aspect of the Hotel is upmarket and lovely touches throughout. Gratefully we were upgraded to the top floor, what lovely views....!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
