Reviewed 13 October 2013

Stayed there for the weekend. Loved the location, close to everything. Right smack in the CBD which also means noise from the streets on the weekend. But I am a heavy sleeper so no issues. Just a short walk from Town Hall station so easily accessible via the airport rail link which stops at Town Hall. Next to a huge Woolworth's supermarket, and all the major malls in the city. You can also walk to all the major attractions from there. Room was cosy, double bed with some room to walk around. Clean and impeccable. Just a shower stall and no bathtub but thats really good enough. The receptionist, upon check-in, explained how the hotel was secured after hours, with a 24hrs lounge manager next door as a back-up resource if we ran into any problems. He also explained how the old caged lift worked. Lovely experience and will definitely stay here again for the price and location. I only wish they had provided a hairdryer.

Room Tip: Room 303-305 was facing the Park Street. Ask for rooms away from the main streets if you wish to avo...

Hi Rinster2211,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review, and also for choosing us on your trip to Sydney. Being in central Sydney there can be some traffic noise, and we are glad to hear you were not affected by it.

We were also pleased to hear that our reception staff were so helpful and ensured you were made to feel welcome. Thank you also for your feedback about the hairdryer, we will take it on board.

We hope to see you again when you next visit Sydney.

Kind regards,
Hotel Coronation.

Top spot to stay for location, ALL staff friendly and helpful, rooms clean and all amenities, 24 hour bar, good food at great prices. Stayed an extra night (3 in all), no problems booking the extra night, the elevator is a real treat, old but a step back in time, will stay again and have already recommended it to friends. Anyone who winges about this hotel will never be pleased with anything!

Hi David F,

Thank you for your great review. We love hearing positive feedback about our staff and service and are pleased you had such a lovely experience with us. We were also more than happy to help you out with the extra night.

Our elevator is a real feature and we're happy to hear you loved the step back in time. We get many people telling us they love it.

Look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Sydney.

Kind regards,
Hotel Coronation.

I recently took a delegation of 8 shire Councillors and myself, some with partners and kids, to the annual nsw shires conference. We were so impressed with everything about the hotel, the staff couldn't be more helpful, the service was excellent, rooms were very satisfactory, I was on the 4th floor with a lovely balcony looking onto the busy street below, well done guys and anyone reading the negatives, it is not the case, you will find it very enjoyable, the downstairs bar is great, as is level 1 for a quieter experience, we will be back again and have told many of how good the Corro is, excellent location and superb prices

Room Tip: Rooms with balcony are great!

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights on level 2 in one o the rooms facing Park Street.

The room was basic. It had little space to move around the bed, a tv, coffee and tea making facilities, a bar fridge and a small cupboard. For $109 per night, it was perfectly fine. It was clean, moderately comfortable and the location is top-notch.

There was some construction noise (drilling) that went on until past 11pm. Being sound sleepers, it didn't bother us but would be very irritating to others.

Overall, I would happily stay again.

Thank you for your review and we are happy to hear that you would stay with us again, and that the accommodation met your approval. Being in the heart of Sydney there is occasionally noise which we can't help, but glad to hear you and your partner were not affected by it. Looking forward to seeing you in the future.

This hotel was so bad that I asked for my deposit back and I had booked for 7 people for 3 nights. Even when we were waiting to book in we were ignored while the person on duty just kept answering the phone. I asked to see the room before I payed and was disgusted. It looked like a derelicts hostel.
Here I am now with 7 people who have flown to Sydney for a wedding and no accommodation but thanks to the lovely people at the Park Regis who went on line and found us accommodation at another Hotel for not much more than what the Coronation was charging

We are disappointed that we couldn't give you the experience that so many others have had with us, as we pride ourselves on our cleanliness and friendly service. We remember the day you came in, and being a small hotel and only having one receptionist, it can at times become overwhelming around lunchtime for our receptionist to direct calls for bookings to our Restaurant, answer enquiries for accommodation and manage people checking in early. In saying that, this is not something we ever wish to affect our guests.
While we were disappointed you decided not to stay with us on this trip, we are happy to hear that our recommendation of trying another hotel worked out, and we were happy to store your bags while you checked them out. We thank you for your feedback as we are always looking to improve on our staff training and level of service.

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.
