We booked hotel 1888 and for the money you pay go somewhere else when you can get a better sleep.
To me the most important part of a hotel is the ability to get a good nights sleep, that didn't happen here. Booked a king bed and got 2 single beds pushed together. Seriously? $300 per night and cant even get a proper bed. Whats more the ipad compendium wouldn't turn off. Pressed the off button like a million times at 2am when the blue light glare woke me up, just gave up and flipped the stupid thing over.
Finally opening up the window revealed a very lovely concrete wall a metre away from the window. The perfect Sydney view right?
So take your money to hotel with proper beds and a harbour view.
