When in Sydney we normally stay at the Shangri-La, but have been wanting to try the Establishment Hotel due to the fact it houses some of the best restaurants in the city. It's a hidden gem - some taxis drivers will find it hard to find. The rooms are chic and beautifully appointed.Very spacious for an inner city hotel.

Love this hotel-stayed 10 days. Was recommended by a friend who is equally a "points person" and I'm so glad my daughter and I booked. Hidden in the nice part of the city on a back alley next to the amazing "Mr Wongs" it is surprisingly quiet, bathroom is insanely spacious and hotel staff quaint and made you feel like...

We managed to get in last minute for a 9 o'clock booking but they weren't fazed when we arrived earlier. We had pre-dinner cocktails and leisurely chose our food. I had the 2 course chef menu and my husband the 3. They even brought a small taster in the course where I wasn't eating. All of the courses were beautifully...

Very attractive hotel and room. My husband and I spent two nights in a Penthouse apartment, and looks aside, the other great feature of this hotel is the accessibility it offers to Merivale restaurants. On the downside, it's expensive, noisy, has no views to speak of, is hard to find and feels unsafe at night, and doesn't offer much in...

Had a great time at this trendy bar. It is very large and had a great interior. If you want a good place to go that is not a tourist but local destination this is the place to go. The snacks are quite nice and not to badly priced.

This hotel can be hard to find in a back laneway with no real frontage but once found is a delight to behold.What was once an old seemingly abandoned building has been cleverly restored and reborn into a smart hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, a large modern room with all the modcons, free wi fi and a comfy bed. Our...

My partner and I stayed overnight during the week for a special getaway. We had the best experience! The studio room we stayed in was generously sized and included a myriad of added little extras which made the stay extremely comfortable and luxurious. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the bathroom was exquisite. All staff were extremely helpful and nice....

You really know what you're in for when you spot two sets of earplugs in the bathroom. But let's start with the positives: Great city location. Attentive and polite staff. Comfortable bed. Beautiful and modern interiors. Delicious room service. Good amount of space inside. There's an iPad in the room that you can use as well. Lots of items in...

The best and attentive service from the first moment we checked in. Beautiful rooms, professional stuff, perfect location, lovely breakfast area, the night club at the first floor can be overpacked some days, but if you want excellent dinner and more relaxed atmosphere- my advice to go to Japanese bar at the 4th floor

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
