Although they offered us an early check-in and a great view of the harbor, their housekeeping is not dependable at all. I had to pay a premium price for the room just for the holiday weekend, and to my utter disappointment, the room was still not cleaned even when we left at 7am and put the sign out. I don't...

Well positioned for all the attractions even though the steps up from the Circular Quay road are a bit of a struggle if you are not terribly fit!! The hotel fulfilled our needs while we were there, only a 2 night stay.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Macleay Hotel. We had a room with a fantastic view from the 9th floor onto the harbour. We only stayed 1 night unfortunately, but would've loved to stay longer. Just a lovely location, and very happy with everything incl the staff. Free WiFi was also appreciated - with great signal strength in...

Very reasonable, convenient location for our stay in Sydney. We are very active travelers and rarely spend much time in the hotel. Many excellent restaurants in the area as well as kitchen facilities in the room. Laundry also available on every floor. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Elevator available. Access to most sites within walking distance or a short cab...

Just finished a month here and it's been great. Have stayed for years at this place but not for as long. Susan is spot on and sorts any issues and queries out straight away - her team as well couldn't be more helpful. Great location as well!

We enjoyed our stay at the Macleay Hotel in Sydney. It is about a 20 minute walk to the Harbour made enjoyable with a stroll through the beautiful Royal Botanical Gardens to Circular Quay. The staff at the Front Desk were very accommodating, especially Susan, whom we found to be exceptionally helpful and understanding.

The room has everything we needed. The hotel's staff were friendly and accommodating and they were always ready to assist us whenever we need something. A male personnel (we were not able to inquire his name) also provided us with a map to use and has taught us all the modes of transportation that we could avail of to go...

Excellent service, very friendly staff and a gorgeous view. The kitchenette was perfect for our needs. It was only a 10min walk to St. Luke's Hospital. Having Woolworths directly across the road was very convenient. Lots of nice eating places close by. Kings Cross station only 7mins walk. 24 hour reception also a bonus.
