Staying at the Savoy is based on whether you want to be in this particular location. It's not the world's most exciting spot - suburbia by the sea - although it has a few decent cafes and restaurants. That seems to be the thing to do here - hang out at one of the outdoor cafes,w atch the world go by in an unhurried manner.
I wish the hotel matched the genteel wealth of the cafe goers. This has to be one of the most disappointing hotels I have stayed in in Sydney. It's clean, it's functional, the staff are friendly and its pretty cheap. But only after booking (through wotif.com admittedly) did I discover that the majority of the rooms face into the central atrium and there are no outside windows in these rooms. And the slatted blinds at the interior windows and door used to provide privacy were partially broken, didn't drop completely to the floor etc.
Rooms are also quite small - functional for one person, but I would imagine something of a squeeze for two.
Apparently, for more cash, you can get rooms with outside windows which are also bigger , but there's little to make me want to pay more money in this particular hotel.
Unique Quality: Surrounded by decent cafes and restaurants, good place to get breakfast (but careful of the weekend/holiday surcharge and that some of the cafes do not include GST in the menu prices -important if you are budgetting) but those rooms without outside windows are just basically unpleasant.
Wouldn't recommend unless I had to stay in Double Bay and had no choice.
