Excellent location to everything. Wynyard Train station less than 100m down the road - we caught train from airport to Wynyard Station and hotel was very easy to find. We had a one-bedroom apartment which was absolutely fabulous and roomy. Large balcony. Easy walk to Circular Quay. Staff were lovely. Could be a little bit noisy due to motorway nearby,... More

Stayed here very recently and had a pretty pleasant experience. It's certainly located in a good part of the city.

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.
