With friends we shared an apartment on the 28th floor with view of the harbour. Rooms were spacious and decor tasteful. Couldn't fault, beds luxurious, extras like bathrobes all made our stay wonderful.

The view we had from our deck was amazing! The interiors are a little dated- but not necessarily in a bad way. It really felt like I was walking into an apartment that could be my home- spacious and everything we needed for a weekend mini break. Great location near Wynyard, Circular Quay and super close in a taxi to...

We stayed at the York before going on a cruise to South seas. It was a convenient location. We were able to easily get there from the airport. We did a bit of sightseeing which was within easy walking distance from the hotel. The York does not have a dining room but is conveniently located with restaurants and other eating...

A functional hotel if you need CBD at the lower end of the hotel scale. The hotel is nothing flash - best described as functional. One very positive point - excellent bed, douvee and pillows. very comfy. One major downside - the street noise is terrible. This hotel should think about investing in double-glazed windows. For those requiring space -...

Great spot for the hotel, apartments are huge and have great views off the balcony, although the staff seem a little intrusive. I stayed with family and friends and we felt as if we were being watched and judged. Lovely facilities but the staff kind of let this place down.

In a nutshell I found this Hotel to be exactly what I thought it would be. Great location and studio suite was a great size. Spent 4 nights in total and enjoyed the space of the suite.

We have used these apartments on four occasions over the past 15 years (twice before it was taken over by Swiss-Hotel). The apartments are spacious and well located albeit adjacent to a busy main street howling with traffic noise that carries above to your rooms. Further, the standards of what used to be a good apartment block have fallen considerably...

This hotel is just off the Harbour Bridge so it is very convenient to the city. Our apartment was large with great aspects to the harbour, which would have been great in the day it was built, however additional buildings have taken over and blocked most of the views. There was some 'small' print suggesting the $50 parking fee which...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
