Location was great, room was ascetic. WIFI was good. I appreciate the will of the owner who is keeping this Hotel far from any renovation. You share the toilet and shower with others and they are disgusting.

Stayed here before a friends wedding, we were impressed with the quality of the room, and spaciousness. Located in a wonderful spot right in the heart of the city. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends

This is the most disgusting excuse for a "hotel" i have ever had the misfortune to stay in. I have travelled internationally extensively, yet even in the depths of Africa, India or SE Asia, I have never stayed at anywhere close to the level of...More

The Criterion is not a nice place to stay. I booked it because I need a cheap place for a couple of nights and it is in a good location in the city, and near a train station. On arrival, you go into the bar...More

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
