We stayed at the Hotel and were pleasantly surprised. No parking, but can get free nearby street parking after 9pm or deals in surrounding hotel parking for $30/night. Food is great, enjoying a bespoke rump dish while partner loved the grilled salmon steak! Close to monorail to Darling Harbour and city lights. Room is modern and fair size with northern...

Cost of other hotels in the area were considerably higher and, from reading other reviews, involve rooms that barely fit the bed or have shared bathroom facilities. This hotel was excellent value for the money paid. The room was very spacious with a double and a single bed and a desk! Ensuite bathroom, breakfast and wifi all included. Short walk...

5 stars from me for location (walking distance to darling harbour), cleanliness (beds made every day), budget (priced right for those on a budget), friendliness (always very helpful). If you want 5 star accommodation then pay the price! Glasgow Arms Hotel was perfect for my budget and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Very pleasant and helpful staff again. Let in t our room 12 am. Even though it's a 1.30 check in. Close to the city and Darling Harbor's a 5 minute walk over the bridge. Room was adequate and value for money $108.00 for the Mardi Gras weekend, bargain!! Pub below and $8 Uber into CBD. Great!

I found this property using Wotif and looking for a modest priced overnight. I found the Glasgow Arms and its accommodation upstairs (no lift/elevator). I found the staff helpful, the room, including bathroom clean. Beware Saturday and possibly other nights with live bands performing. The lights outside by night were a concern for a light sleeper. I managed to make...

Spent one night here, as my wife and I visited Sydney for a Vivid Cruise. Rooms were above a pub. Rooms looked old as well. Inadequate light along the corridors as we arrived back during the night from our cruise. "Breakfast option" was bread and your choice of cereals from the corridors. I think that we were drunk enough to...

Basic rooms above a pub. Rooms are clean if a little dated. I asked to change my room on first day and had no problem with the staff who are very friendly and helpful. 24 hr self serve continental breakfast is excellent. Free wifi available and noise from the music below was not a problem. The hotel is directly opposite...

The sign says "We are not a 24 hour hotel." They could drop the "24 hour" and be accurate. They have a few rooms above a bar. Steep stairs and no elevator. It doesn't open until 11:00 am most days and does not seem to be associated except they hold the keys. The continental breakfast means there is a loaf...
