Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Upon arrival, staff were friendly. Our heater wasn't working, was sorted out immediately ( on/off buttons on the nightstand for TV light and heater). Definitely staying somewhere else next time though . Our room backed onto a laneway.. Lots of honking ( constant fifteen minutes of it on Saturday night ) and the skips get emptied EVERY MORNING at 5am, not great for a light sleeper. The bed is too soft.. Not a big deal for a couple if nights, but after 5 nights our backs were sore.

Great for the price, but too noisy for our liking.

Stayed: July 2014

Once again,we stayed here,overnight in sydney,great seniors rate of 99.00,including breakfast.We appreciated we were able to get in room by 9am after travelling by train overnight from melbourne.
The stairs are a hassle but the friendly staff helped with our cases,great thereis a woolworths over the road sells all kind of food etc,A bus leaves from out the front going one way back to central station and the other way to circular quay.
We also appreciated the advice we were givento purchase the pension all day ticket for 2.50 each and we could use this ticket to go on any bus light rail or ferry,but not to airport.
Once again the staff were friendly,upgraded our room so we could see the water and nothing was to much trouble,This hotel is like us old and tired,but clean and a great price,andposition for budget travellers,once again Devere staff thank you

Undoubtedly, the location is the best you can say about this hotel: just few minute walk from great Elisabeth Bay, Elisabeth Bay House and King’s Cross area. The structure is rather average, but not expensive. Some rooms are very dark. Breakfast is ok.

Stayed at The Devere for one night for work. A fantastic location and such good value for money for accommodation in central Sydney. While the rooms have aged and the property may not be what it once was, the value for money is unbeatable. I would recommend The Devere for a stay for any reason. Close to rail station and shops and restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Choose a single room if travelling for business. Great value

Very average hotel, but then sometimes all you really need is a firm bed and running hot water. Sydney is a pricey city when it comes to accomodation so Devere is decently priced. But sometimes it's worth it to pony up the dollars for a nicer place in a less seedy part of town. During the day it is not so bad but on a Friday and Saturday night it can become a little unpleasant.
Kings Cross train station about a five minute walk, hotel close to the nightlife, if that's your thing.

If all you need is a place to stay this hotel ticks all the boxes. Not concerned about ambience or grand and spacious foyers? Devere is what is politely termed as 'quaint' and 'budget'. Remember you get what you pay for.

Great value for money. Needed a place to stay asap and they were the best we found. Actually cheap for great value.
Was just what we needed. Nothing fancy. Just a place to stay.
Would recommend to backpackers & people not looking to spend too much.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled with friends
