“Great Value, Great Location!”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

I stay here for work very frequently and I am always very happy with the room and service! AWESOME CENTRAL LOCATION, that is perfect for city, harbour even suburban visits as it is right next to Toen Hall Station.

Stayed a week in July 2013 and would recommend the Hotel Coronation for anyone looking for a clean, comfortable and convenient hotel in Sydney at a very reasonable price.

The Pros:
Friendly and helpful staff.
Right smack dab in the middle of the Central Business District.
Very nicely priced lodging for a rather expensive city.
Next to Town Hall Station (the airport train stops here).
Next to a four story Woolworth's Shopping Centre that offers free wifi.
Hotel Restaurant is an absolute bargain.
10-20 minutes walking distance to Central Train Station, the Circular Quay/Ferries, Museums, Chinatown, Darling Harbour - or take the trains right outside the front entrance.
Close to a variety of restaurants including Subway/McDonalds/Burger King.
Very comfortable beds.
Mini-fridge (not stocked though).
Luggage rack, closet with hangers, iron and ironing board.
Coffee, tea and condiments refreshed daily.
Multi-function alarm clock.
Well-stocked tourist brochures available in lobby.
Two bars on-site with a liquor package take away.


The Cons:
No wifi available.
Limited TV stations.
Front Desk only manned 8:00 AM-8:00 PM.

Room Tip: Book early as they full up quickly.

The only good thing I have to say about this hotel: great location, with easy access to the Sydney Convention Centre (10 min walk), Circular Quay (20 min walk or 7 min city rail), Chinatown (5 min walk), plenty of fast food restaurants and convenience stores just around the corner. However: noisy, very ancient elevator (you have to manually open 2 doors to get in/out), bed not comfortable (could feel the inside of the mattress), shower was barely my height and would alternate hot/cold water by itself... would definitely look for another hotel if I'm ever in Sydney again. No breakfast, however a gloria jean coffee shop just across the street.

comfy beds - had a queen bed and a sofa bed which when set up is almost the size of a queen bed. friendly receptionist. The main door is closed after reception hours but is accessible by room card. busy and safe area because there is a bustling woolworths next door. We are on level 2, facing main road - every night we hear siren from fire engine/police car, as well as loading and unloading of goods by woolworths staff. But the noise is bearable. House keeping is at 9.30-10am, they will knock on the door loudly, usually we will tell them to come back later - stating a time. Our room has always been made-up by end of the day. location is very convenient. George street - the major shopping street - is nearby. The free 555 shuttle bus is just round the corner, convenient to get to circular quay or chinatown. We took the airport train to town hall but realised that the cost of the train for 2 adults, 2 children is about the same cost of a taxi ride! On our departure day, we opted to take a taxi to airport (non peak hr of 10am). The receptionist guided us on where to get a taxi. Just walk towards McDonald's - there is a Q of taxi waiting.

Great little hotel in the middle of Sydney. Close to all the attractions and a short walk to Darling Harour. My room was small and simple but had everything I needed. The room was clean and well kept. The only down side was that it was a little noisy during the evening but didn't prevent me from sleeping. There is also a restaurant downstairs that is absolutely awesome! Great service and amazing (and cheap) food. Staff were friendly and very helpful! Will stay again!

Thank you for such a great review. Loved to hear that you will be staying with us again on your return. The Mezz Bar will be just as awesome as last time, only better as it has just had a small refurbishment. Thank you again.

The rooms at this place maybe old, but they arecomfortable and the price is excellent value. The location is great, just outside Town Hall station, very central and and easy walk to Darling Harbour and China Town. The price is cheap for Sydney and the rooms are clean. The rooms are all upstairs, with a restaurant which is very popular as the prices are also very very reasonable for Sydney.
Will be staying there again in the near future as I will be attending a concert in Sydney and the transport is excellent.

I have stayed at Hotel Coronation on 3 occasions now, and just booked my 4th stay. I've never found anything to complain about at this lovely little hotel, and I am quite particular. For such a low rate they provide comfortable and secure rooms and the beds are great.

It is a 30 second walk once you get out of Town Hall train station, right next to Woolies and has a restaurant and bar inside - what more could you want! For those late night escapades there's also a McDonalds just across the road. It is about equal walking in either direction to Darling Harbour or Circular Quay - I'd estimate 15-20 minutes.

The restaurant has some great 'Happy Hour' specials that are worth checking out and all the food I've tried there has been great. So glad I found this place, it comes highly recommended from me.
