I usually stay at the Radisson Blu, but decided for a change this time. Park8 is located close to Park, Elizabeth, etc. It was close to all my meetings on Bridge St., Pitts, etc. Amazing. In the heart of the Sydney CBD! Coffee was great and free :) All Park8 employees were incredibly nice and professional ... I will say it once again .. One of the best places at stayed at in Sydney and in may other countries for that matter. BTW, free unlimited internet as well which is a very important thing for us business travelers. Rooms are specious as well. Thank you for a great stay, Park8! Robert

We (myself and my husband) stayed here last night to attend a show at the State Theatre- great location for this purpose too, being a very short walk down Park then up Pitt street. Impressed from the start when I made an email enquiry about parking and had an almost immediate response. The staff were super friendly, we were checked in by Daniel who was really lovely, and offered a great recommendation for dinner.
The room was spacious, including a large bathroom with a free standing bath and rainfall shower. I loved the nod to the park with a field of lush green carpet and tree stump side tables. The bed was huge and comfy with quality linen. One of my favourite and super convenient features was the sink in the bench over the mini bar fridge, unusual for a room that doesn't include a kitchenette but very welcome!
Park8 offers a cute mini in room dining menu, breakfast was really reasonable ($6 egg and bacon roll) with no charge for room service.
Also !!!free!!! Wifi which is almost (ridiculously) unheard of in Australian hotels.
Room stocked with quality t2 tea bags and lovely sls and animal testing free toiletries.
Checkout was effortless with a very friendly young lady and the manager, who offered a business card for future contact in relation to an enquiry I made.
We will certainly return to this hotel!

Dear KittyCorfield,

What a lovely review! Thank you so much for your generous feedback.

We are thrilled that you found the location perfect for your needs; we are indeed lucky to be right in the heart of town (although our bank balances might not feel so lucky, with all the nearby shopping and eating to be done).

Daniel was really proud of his personal mention and happy to have been of service!

We love the T2 too - actually it was only a relatively recently development that we started stocking it in all of our rooms, so we're really happy to see it appreciated by a fellow T2 lover..

We hope you will contact us again any time you are travelling to Sydney, hopefully sooner than later. We are 24/7 so please feel free to call regarding any enquiries at all.

Warmest Regards,

The Park8 Team

Our kids booked us with Park8 as part of my 50th birthday present. As we own a 7 day/week business it is rare that we go away. Park8 was perfect for our few nights away. The staff extremely friendly, courteous & helpful. A pleasure to enter their reception area. The beds & pillows to die for - extremely comfortable so comfortable that I've ordered a mattress topper & pillows for home. Located in a convenient spot. And I must mention they have great coffee. Hope to stay there again. Thanks guys!

Room Tip: Pleased with our room The chocolates on arrival was a lovely touch. Thanks

I needed to come to Sydney at the last minute and booked this off one of those multi hotel web sites. To be honest I wasn't hopeful of a good result or at best perhaps being stuck in a 'bad' room - how wrong was I.

This little motel is situated right in the heart of the CBD and luckily has a large sign for visitors to head for as the actual entrance is quite small and could be hard to spot. The foyer is small with a nice little coffee bar and the front desk staff are great! -attentive, happy and so obliging. They display a really polite sense of casualness which is so refreshing when compared to the stuffy attitude displayed by some '5 star' hotels. No matter how often you walk through the foyer you are always greeted with a smile and genuine greeting - very refreshing.
Our room was clean and well presented, with one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in for quite a while. The air conditioner worked well and the room was quite even though you are right in the heart of the city.
One great feature is free unlimited Internet - a great little feature and such a refreshing change from the $30 + a day other hotels charge - they could take a tip from this little motel.
All in all a really enjoyable stay at a funky, fun little hotel - I'm looking forward to coming back!

Park8 Hotel was the perfect place for our family break in Sydney. The staff were simply wonderful! They were extremely friendly,helpful and patient with my two young kids. They gladly assisted with everything from our luggage, to parking, planning our outings and even making us breakfast in the little nook cafe downstiars! Located in the heart of the CBD Park8 was the ultimate location with all the shops of Pitt St Mall and Westfield around the corned, Hyde Park almost across the road and short work to Darling Harbour. We will definately be back at Park8 Hotel for our next visit to Sydney.

Room Tip: Two bedroom loft style apartment was excellent for families.

Very friendly and good service. Room was clean and stayed that way throughout our stay.

Has a nice place on the left corner to have lunch or breakfast and all your shopping needs are super close by. All in all a good stay!

This hotel is conveniently locate in sydney's central business district. Within a 10 minute walk are the high end stores (Prada, Gucci, Tiffanys, etc), sites such as the Sydney Eye, and also Darling Harbor. We stayed for only one night but saw all three shifts of staff and they were all very friendly and helpful. We arrived early in the morning and the staff graciously held our luggage for us, provided a useful map, and answered any questions we had. When we returned to our room late that day the staff had brought our luggage up and it was waiting for us in the room. The room was clean though there was no view.

Dear Robert S,

It was a pleasure to host you at Park8 Hotel and we greatly appreciate your lovely review.

Next time you visit, if you would like to try a room with a view, please contact us directly so that we can provide the best rates on either our Deluxe Room or unique 1 Bedroom Loft Apartments. The Deluxe rooms all have unfrosted windows which you can open for fresh air, and allow street views (fun for people watching in the Sydney CBD!). The 1 Bedroom Lofts all split-level apartments, and have floor-to-ceiling windows allowing great city views and sunlight. Our Standard rooms are the only room types which have the frosted windows to ensure privacy (as they are near to an adjacent building), although they are very clean, comfortable king bed rooms and especially ideal for single travellers or shorter stays.

We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your journey after you left us and look forward to welcoming back when you are next in Sydney!

With warmest regards,

The Park8 Team
