Convenient location

Although a small room almost everything one could expect was provided. The location was great if you want to go to the Maritime Museum (we did) and dining options were not far away.

Hip and stylish - great hotel!

Only stayed for one night but would have enjoyed it for longer. Very modern, very hip, very good. Understands today's traveller better than any other hotel I've been to. (free WiFi, hotel and surrounding information available on provided iPad, wired and wireless AV connector to TV, charging port etc. -- great!) Good location (once you know how to get there)

Excellent rooms and service! Location is ideal!

My sister and I stayed for 2 nights in a King Room. It was very generous for the two of us and the bed and pillows were so comfortable. We stayed in room 108. My only concern was the amount of noise coming from the highway which was right outside our door. It would have been good if we were offered something for compensation given the amount of noise we had while we attempted to sleep. Overall, very good hotel and would love to stay again. Close to the harbour! =) thumbs up

Small but elegant

Stayed in room 220, shoebox room between lift and stairwell. I expected it to be noisy because of the location but it was very quiet and cosy. Lovely styling, new and clean rooms. Happy hour a nice in the bar makes it a good pre dinner meeting place. Staff very keen and most of them great to deal with. Room is European sized so you might find it annoying if there's two of you, but for a weekend it's great.

Excellence Choice

1888 is a unique hotel compare to large brand names sitting in the neighbour. Good location, takes about 15 mins walk reaching Darling Harbour and the Fish Market and even the Sydney Opera House in 30mins. Rooms are in reasonable size with cool industural design. Some down side I found was the shower was not strong enough in my bedroom and the bed was too soft. Overall, a very pleasant stay and will definately come back for my next visit in Sydney.
