We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights to spend some time in Sydney before embarking on a 12-day cruise, and picked this hotel for its price and location. From the airport, we took the train to Museum Station and walked to the hotel. It was an easy walk if you can carry luggage up some stairs, but doable. The location of the hotel is ideal as we walked everywhere from there: Circular Quay, Harbour Bridge and Opera House, Sydney Explorer Hop-on-hop-off, Darling Harbour, The Rocks, Hyde Park, and on and on. We booked a standard room thru Expedia, but were upgraded upon arrival to a larger room on the street side. The room was not very large, but comfortable, and we found that being on the street side was somewhat noisy (single pane windows). However, simple earplugs (we always carry those...) took care of the noise and all was quite well. The room was clean and the staff very friendly and accommodating.

We really enjoyed at stay at this hotel back in mid-November. We were indecisive about booking accommodation for our one week holiday and finally chose this hotel via Trip Advisor a few days before arriving in Sydney. What a great choice it turned out to be, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was great. Couldn't beat the location on the corner of Park and Castlereagh. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone, esp the loft room which we had, that was something a bit different!

Room Tip: Choose the loft room!

We were booked in here 3 night pre cruise. Have to say although the staff were pleasant and friendly it was not ideal for our needs. We should have done more research and stayed at the Rocks area .
We arrived tired and dirty after a long overnight flight, no rooms available and no shower facilities which a larger hotel would have had. Our agent had booked us a basic room with no windows and no bath. We asked to upgrade which they could do for 2 nights only and although the upgrade room had windows no bath. The basic room was small, okay for a few days business but we had 4 cases and were tripping over them.
The reception area is very small again a problem when we arrived trying to open luggage and get out what we needed for our day in the town. No public toilets so luckily we had relations in the Holiday Inn and we taxied over there to use the facilities.
The room was not cleaned very well, a lot of dust on the units.
Coffee shop area too small, we found a lovely coffee shop to the left of the hotel, Pablo & Rustys.

Dear ScotlandTravel-lover,

Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts, which help us constantly grow and improve, and we are so sorry that we did not meet your expectations on this occasion.

We are very disappointed about your note on cleanliness, and have followed this feedback up with training and reinforcement on the importance of attention to detail. Thank you for letting us know!

Our on-site espresso bar is very compact, and although we offer delicious coffee and hearty, simple little breakfast options (ham & cheese croissant, thick cut toast, double-egg&bacon rolls, Brookfarm muesli etc), for anyone wanting to enjoy a sit down breakfast during their stay we can definitely give some good local recommendations! Pablo & Rusty's is a new neighbour and it is great to hear that you enjoyed your meal there.

We do hope that you loved your cruise and are now home safely, ready for a wonderful festive season.

Take care!

Warm regards,

The Park8 Team

Great for the solo or business traveller - the foyer/street face of this hotel can be deceiving, rooms are clean, modern, generous in size and reasonably priced for a weeknight CBD stay. Service (as with my experience at all 8 Hotels) is exceptional, espresso coffee available 24 hours is a plus!

My husband and I recently celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and stayed at the Park8 Hotel in Sydney CBD. The young girl on the desk, Mercedes, was extremely helpful and friendly. She upgraded us to a deluxe suite. Nothing was a problem for her or any of the staff.

The room was very nice. It was really well decorated and quite roomy. The bathroom was great. My husband, who is very fussy about his showers, was rapt in the rain shower. It was good to have a decent shower. It also had a nice big bath.

The hotel was in a good position. Close to everything. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This little hotel is just what I needed for a week long work engagement in Sydney. Close to everything and has just the things you need. Easy walk to all the good food places.
Staff were freindly and helpful, nice big bathroom. Good prices. Will be staying here on next work trip.
