Nice Location, Great Overall Value

Overall a refreshing change from your standard city hotel, starting with the location that feels a bit more like a resort than being in a busy city, yet you're only steps away from Sydney's busy city center. The rooms are more spacious that what I'm used to in Sydney and I found the overall value provided to be excellent. Yes, the rooms would perhaps benefit from a few minor touch ups, but everything functioned perfectly and was impeccably clean. The building itself is really cool, with nice public spaces and a great pool.

Excellent

We enjoyed our stay and found it close to everything we wanted to do. We did a lot of walking and visited the Art Gallery. We had tours of the State Library and attended a concert at Taronga Zoo also the local Hotels had some great entertainment.

Hotel has gone down hill since new ownership. This hotel had closed their bar couldnt get front desk to answer calls toilet was leaking. All the niceties you get for a top dollar hotel has gone. I told them so. I wish my next booking on the 22nd feb was with another hotel now. After staying there many times I am very disappointed. Julie simon apres.she.

This hotel is the best I have ever stayed at. The bed was so comfortable and they have a pillow menu. Staff were friendly and it was a fantastic location. We loved our view of the Navy ships.

Great Sydney overnight.

A fantastic hotel, outstanding location with numerous top class restaurants on the wharf. We were in town for a family overnight stay and chose this hotel for its location and proximity to the city. Totally different to any other hotel we have stayed in. Very friendly, helpful staff I can't recommend it highly enough. We will be back for a longer stay next time.

Great Location

Blue Sydney was lovely ! Convenient to where we needed to go and provided many dining options. The proximity to the CBD without being right in the hustle and bustle was refreshing. The old wharf interior was charming yet modern and a nice change from the generic hotel interiors.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are visiting Garden Island Navy base or are a Navy or Ship buff this place is right on the doorstep of the Wharf depending on which side of the hotel you are on there are great views out your window of the RAN warships based at Garedn Island.

Great location and very comfortable

A wonderful hotel with a difference. Nice to be in a non stock standard hotel room with a wonderful view and ambience. I love the industrial setting and use of color. Great location near the gardens, an easy walk to the city and near some of the best restaurants and pubs in Sydney. Highly recommend for a weekend or longer trip to Sydney.

Treated like royalty

From the moment we arrived, this was the most excellent venue we have ever stayed in. Our comfort was their goal, very personal and polite service and the staff have been excellently trained to the highest level of customer service. It didn't matter if it was the staff dealing with our needs or just passing us in the corridor or lift, all the staff were so friendly. I will and have recomended to everyone I know that this is the best place in Sydney to stay.
