Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney
Ranked #22 of 181 Hotels in Sydney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2012

This hotel hides away in Jamison Street in Sydney - handy to The Rocks. We boked through a mystery deail on wotif and paid a small amount to upgrade to Club Level - had a wonderful view of the harbour and huge room with a great bathroom. Wonderful drinks before a show and breakfast next morning. Staff all very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view on Club Levels

I have absolutely NO idea why there have been negative reviews of this hotel. I stayed with a friend for one night and it was lovely. As we were not a couple, the twin room was lovely and the bathroom great. No problem at all with service and although the bus got us in at 11.30am (from Canberra), reception had absolutely no problem with finding us a nice room much earlier than the 2pm check in. The pool and spa beautiful and the location gorgeous. I am not sure what people have been expecting but there is absolutely nothing about this place that I can be negative about. Lovely cafe across the road where we had brekky. All in all a great stay - and at $180 for the 2 of us for the night in the middle of Sydney - well it's brilliant!! Get over yourselves you silly people!!

After reading reviews and seeing photos on trip advisor I was very concerned that I had made the wrong choice. We booked the hotel through a mystery deal on wotif. I even called wotif and the hotel to get a refund but could not. However, when we arrived at the hotel we were extremely surprised at how nice the hotel was. The staff were very accommodating, the conceage took our bags immediately to our rooms and the interior of the hotel was modern (both in the foyer and room). The location is EXCELENT! Could not ask for a better location. It was close to everything. The gym located on the 1st floor was also very adequate, including the pool and spa. Overall we had an excellent stay and would definitely return.

Great location, walk down the the Rocks, or down George St for some shopping. Beautiful indoor pool, spa, steam room & sauna. Day beds to relax on & overlooking the city. Upgrade to the club floor for free cocktails & food for 2 hrs in the evening & free breakfast.

Room Tip: ASk for an upgrade.

Stayed for one night. Rooms are very pleasant and spacious although need some maintenance. Couldn't work out how to use the lights in the room, far too complicated ! Lift card was dodgy too but overall a nice hotel but not in the league of a good 5 star accommodation

The rooms were large and the location is ideal, especially if you are going on a cruise as it is a short downhill walk to Circular Quay or over to Darling Harbour passenger terminal.

The staff were very helpful to us with some queries that we had

Okay - so we were on a wot if packagE, and I'd seen some concerning reviews however I struggle tower how this hotel maIntains a five star rating. Staff were very helpful and we found the lOcation very central but our floOr had lots of dirty marks, the fridge had a puddle of water making the cbocates etc very soggy and when we opened the curtains fond a blInd I would be horrified to see in evn a three star hOtel. Hubby hesitant to cOmplain as we had a busy schedule and weren't In our room much however on second day I did discuss with the manager we were promised a room change which never happened and I wasn't in the mood to persist with complaints. Overall it was just a disappointing stay as these issues hadn't occurred overnight there is no excuse for them not being noticed and addressed. On a positive note the bathroom was beautIful.
