The Bayswater was comfortable, convenient and great value for money for a business trip. Air-conditioning was welcome at the end of a long, humid day, and every basic amenity we needed was provided. Our rooms were simple, clean and comfortable, and the cafe downstairs was very welcome in the early morning. Location is excellent and convenient – easy access to the...

The Baywater's manager Ken turned a potentially really bad experience into a really good one for us… We attempted to modify our booking online using Booking.com (switching for bigger rooms), but something broke down in the process and even though we have received confirmation that the change had been made, our booking had somehow been cancelled altogether. It was a...

Probably a better accommodation for the young and middle age traveler. The neighborhood was convenient and the atmosphere at Kings Cross was good for people watching. Lots of strip joints and massage parlors but not dangerous.

Excellent service ~ very helpful and friendly staff. They offered to help with our luggage. They also let us leave our luggage with them in reception until we were ready leave. Very comfortable bed. Quiet room with no traffic noise. A cafe right next door. Good quick & cheap breakfast. Taxi pick-up stop right outside.

Good location, near the metro, very clean. Yo can walk to some attractions but it is a long walk. There are restaurants and a supermarket around de place. The room was too small, when I entered the room I touched the light table with the door.

Room and location was disappointing. Couch was worn out, several stains on the carpet, very poor lighting in the bathroom. As a single woman traveling for business, this was a less than desirable hotel choice. Only good note, the bed was comfortable.

Parking is .2 miles away from hotel. Reception did poor job of giving directions to parking. Room was small but very clean. Cool restaurant and bar across the street. You have to carry luggage up steep flight of stairs to get to lobby. Never able to connect to internet.

Staying in Kings Cross

Neighbourhood Profile
Kings Cross
Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The Cross," Sydney's red light district. These new rules have encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the area, as well as organic markets on Saturdays. The area's nightclubs are still popular with youngsters, however, who will dance to the early morning hours on weekend nights. There are plenty of artifacts from Kings Cross' shady past when gangsters and liquor houses owned the place. Today, one can still find a variety of adult entertainment venues in this evolving area.
