room was nice but windows alittle too thin with the city traffic oustide and the walls a little to thin with passing hallway traffic. we were there for a convention and the airconditioning failed on the second day but other than that it was a good hotel

Comfortable room & bed. Location good if you need to be near Central station. Not too far to walk or catch light rail to Darling Harbour 15-20mins. Pleasant reception staff also replaced a broken hairdryer in room. Food & Beverage department staff pleasant too but half the restaurant closed on Saturday night over long weekend. Bar wasn't stocked adequately & took 30mins to get a cocktail. The pool area needs ventilation for the chlorine fumes. If the price was right I'd give the hotel a second chance to fix the little things to make the stay more enjoyable for 4 stars.

The location of this hotel is great, walking distance to Chinatown, Korean St, near Central Station and bus stations. Any food is within walking distance. Staffs are friendly and helpful , can direct you to the place of interest that you want to go and have some recommendations on the popular locations. Room cleanliness could be improve , but not so bad. Room is spacious , we like it a lot.

Having been told someone has checked into my room already was a bit of a surprise as I was travelling solo - ahh just a computer error... went to use my in room safe - mmm not working sorry sir no maintenance staff on duty. wanted to watch a movie - have to ring reception to unblock movie channel - sorry sir its the movie company's fault movies are not working. the tiling in the bathroom looks like its was patched up by a five year old and certainly not looking like a 1 star hotel standard let alone the standard claimed of this hotel. BUT the staff were extremely professional and made the stay bearable. Seems like the company which owns the establishment are skimping, lucky they have good staffing otherwise it would be a disaster.

A pretty decent place to stay. Close to the attractions of Surry Hills and very easy to get to, being almost next to Central Station.

Everything was excellent, except for the air-con system being a bit noisy . It would wake up a light sleeper.

Reception staff extremely friendly, helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was a bother to them. Room nice and clean, plenty of room for two and quite quiet. Very good location for Central Station and free Shuttle bus. Would stay again.

A beautifully appointed room with a massive very comfortable bed. It was very quiet even though so close to Central Station and the city. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

In a word, excellent! My wife and I were most impressed with the courtesy and efficiency of all staff, particularly Lilian and the other young women at the front desk, and the young men who undertook the valet parking and ferried our luggage to our room. Thank you: we shall be back!

Sydney was almost completely booked out during Labour Weekend 2010 so we stayed here rather than stay at the serviced apartments that I have been using - they were booked out. We had two rooms with a couple and 5 children from 11 to 15 years. The king size bed had an enormous amount of roll-together, with a mattress overlay that was thick in the corners and thin in the middle. I woke up more tired every day. The sofa beds were also very uncomfortable, with a spring poking up in one. The rooms were nice and clean with the glaring exception of a syringe (no needle thankfully!) hiding under the desk. On the plus side, the kids loved the fish in the lobby floor and had a blast in the pool.

I booked two rooms at the sebel when i turned up at the reception desk to check in the man receptionist said that I wasn't on his computer list even though I had provided him with my booking voucher and the cost of the rooms had been taken from my credit card, he said there was no problem and gave me one room, I pointed out that I had booked two rooms and he again said no problem and checked us into the second room. the rooms were fine, clean and had everything I needed and was in a convienient location for what we were doing that evening so overall I was happy with the hotel but next time I will call in advance to make sure they actually have my booking on their system before trying to check in

Good location to the show I was attending - 20 minutes walk to Sydney Football/Cricket Stadium or $10.00 in a taxi. Few minutes walk to Central Railway Station. Good size rooms and a great swimming pool. This was my second stay.

Overall, we were a bit disappointed with our stay at the Sebel Surry Hills. First of all, there was a used contact lens case left under the basin in the bathroom. This might seem minor but it shows how "thorough" their cleaning routine is. Then there's the indoor pool, spa & sauna. The supposed heated pool was icy cold and the sauna was only luke warm. After we contacted the reception, the staff told us some of the elements weren't working. The only reason we chose them is because of their pool, spa & sauna so it was disappointing that we could not enjoy these facilities at all. Then there's the air con, which we were not able to lower the temp and because the doona was quite warm, we were sweating throughout our sleep. Also, I would not recommend drinking anything from the fridge as we found one of the bottled water has mould all over it and who knows how long it has been sitting in the fridge. Other than that, the location was good and the price was relatively reasonable.

We love this hotel as it has something to offer everyone. A great place to catch the city bus, trains, and hop on hop off bus. Wonderful food on Crown Street. Lots of choices. Great music scene for all genre's. Wine bars, pubs, cafe's, all types of food. Not far from Woolworth's which is important for those who like to take some meals in the room, or picnic in the park. Staff were very helpful with maps and directions. We are walkers and so could walk to Opera House without trouble. However the free bus nearby will give you a ride almost to the door. Very Clean, Very Modern, Very well taken care of. Love it and highly reccommend this hotel. David Jones, Myers, and all major shopping very close. Day tour buses will pick you up and deliver you to the door. Try it you'll like it.
