Wld appreciate any comments on these hotel we are looking at. Looking at "clean and safe".(value-for-$ won't hurt either.) Thanks.
Pensione Boutique Hotel
Capitol Square Hotel
Oaks Hyde Park Plaza
The Wattle Hotel
I stayed at the travel lodge and found everything there fine. The rooms were spacious and the staff helpful. Everything was clean.
Don't opt for bed and breakfast, when I went down for breakfast no one was ever about to confirm who you were! Just help yourself!
Unfortunatly not aware of the other hotels but would advise you book in advance depending when you are going.
ive heard of the oaks hyde park, travelodge and capitol square.
oaks hyde park - highrise. to get to anywhere in the city you need to cut across/around hyde park. (5mins)
travelodge - if this is the one near martin place, great location. i'd stay here. its easily walking distance to the rocks/circular quay..and even easier to get to pitt st shopping mall.
capitol square - this is a nicer hotel than the travelodge i think its a rydges. nearer to chinatown. so food is no problem. its at the other end of the city when talking about circular quay and the rocks. more hustle and bustle under you compared to the travelodge, but travelodge is more central to everything compared to capitol.
Best deals are there!
Me and my husband arrive in sydney in two weeks time and have not yet booked at our accomodation. We have a budget of around £50 per night which is flexible. We are looking at the following hotels:
Meriton Waterloo/Moore Park - is it near the city?
Oaks Hyde Park Plaza
Central Park Hotel
Savoy, Double Bay - not sure if this is too far out, after a night out in the city.
Metro Hotel on Pitt or Central
Capitol Square Hotel
Hotel Ibis World Square
Mercure Hotel Ultimo
Stamford Plaza - Double Bay - maybe a couple of nights here
Would be grateful for any advice or feedback from anyone who has stayed at any of the hotels.
Ive heard you can book accomodation at the airport, has anyone done this, do you think its advisable, are the prices any cheaper than wotif?
Thanks in Advance.
Meriton at Moore Park is newish and most Meriton establishments are good value, but it is a little out of where you would probably want to be.I'd give Savoy a miss,good location but poor standard and unfriendly and unhelpful staff. However, the Stamford at Double Bay is very pleasant, lovely area, close to rail at Edgecliff station and plenty of public transport, taxis aren't expensive to the city etc from there. Oaks at Hyde Park should be alright as well but I have never stayed there. Check out deals on Wotif and Needitnow. have a great time, I love visiting Sydney even though I only live 3 hours away and have been doing it all my life, I never tire of the place.
Hi - my in-laws stayed at Oaks Hyde Park a couple of months ago and were disappointed with the accommodation and value for money.
Friends of mine stayed at the Ibis in Darling Harbour Susie, and found it to be very good for the price and quite central to everything. Cheers, Ann :o)
I agree with Ann (G'day Ann), have a look at Darling Harbour. There's Ibis, Mercure, Novotel, Four Points - a whole lot of good hotels and the location's great. You can check on www.darlingharbour.com
We're now looking at staying at the Capitol Square Hotel for 3 nights then 3 nights at the Stamford Plaza Double bay so we can experience abit of Luxury.
Has Anyone stayed at Capitol Square Hotel?
All of you were very helpful with different sightseeing ideas for our trip. Now, our daughters' study program ends earlier than planned and we will need a hotel for her for 5 nights. She is 20 years of age, has been to Sydney before as well as doing the study abroad there. When we travel as a family we normally stay in Marriotts, but since it is just her she doesn't need to have that level of hotel. We definitely do not want a back packer hotel, and we don't want one near Kings Cross. It needs to be about the standard of a Holiday Inn and near to major sites, etc. Obviously she needs a very safe area. I have checked out the various chain hotels but am wondering if there are smaller ones that might fit the bill.
Have you tried www.wotif.com? Lists heaps of hotels and at a discounted rate. It will give you an idea of the prices expected to pay as well as location etc. You cannot book more than 2 weeks in advance but I always use this site when I travel up to Sydney with work or pleasure.
There's the Ibis Hotel (3 star hotel, part of a big hotel chain)in Pitt Street (CBD) near Town Hall Station. Also check out the Medina Apartments which have a few properties in the city- apartment/hotel type accommodation. Bonus here is she will have a full kitchen with kitchenware to save on eating costs. I used to stay in the one in Crown Street, Surry Hills, but they have other locations in other parts of the city as well, if Surry Hills is not familiar to her.
You could try the Metro Apartments on Sussex St. They are situated near Cockle Bay sort of opposite the Maritime Museum and just across the road from that famous pub...The Slip Inn. Where Mary met Frederick.
Hello Carolyn, just back from Syd. Did not use these hotels but they are along main roads & away from Kings Cross.
VIBE - has a proper lobby plus resturant. (5 min from Hyde Park)
Oaks Hyde Park Plaza - just opposite the Park itself - belongs to the Oaks group which has abt 2 other hotels in Syd. Think it is just next the Marriotts.
Or how abt the B&B on the North Shore ?
Thanks all of you for your great help and advice. I will check on each of these and supposedly, the university will even allow the students to stay in the dorms for a minimal amount. That would be ideal since it would be less hassle for her, and it is very near Coogee Beach.
