The hotel looks good on the outside/reception area but the room look a bit tired. But it was clean and comfortable. We had the harbour view and it was beautiful. The hotel is located near Kings Cross station, therefore it was easy for us to get around Sydney.

Studio was a good size, included fridge microwave, toaster, kettle and small 2 ring hot plate. Pots and pans were all very clean. Clean & well decorated, comfortable bed. Bathroom was very clean but could do with... More

We're very satisfied with quality and cleanliness of the room. With harbor view, it was superb as we could dine in the room while watching Sydney Opera House and the sea. But be sure that you get something like Level 7 or higher. The hotel is located about 0.5 km from King's Cross station. Woolworth supermarket is just across the... More

I'd stayed earlier in the year while on business in Sydney. While I considered a couple of others (it was an 8 day stretch), I'd liked Potts Point and the staff at the Macleay had been superb so I booked in again I was warmly welcomed back by Paolo who ensured, as it was a longer stay, they'd try to...

I have previously stayed in Darling Harbour or Milson's Point, so a stay in Potts Point/Kings Cross was different for a change. Handy to Kings Cross Station after catching the train from the airport. I thought I was getting a top floor (9th) room with a direct view of the Harbour Bridge / Opera House, and it seems I was... More

I always try to write honest helpful reviews and not run a property down for the sake of it. The staff here were very good and helpful and tried to resolve my issues but there is no getting away from a disappointing stay.

Hotel is in a cute neighborhood with a grocery store. Rooms have kitchens so I bought food and ate in. But only there one night, and since I wanted to hang out around the Opera House, it wasn't a great location. Took at least 30 minutes (not a clear straight route) to get to the Opera House. Easy to get... More

We have stayed in Potts Point on a number of occasions and prefer this location to the city. Potts Point has so much to offer! The staff at the Macleay were very helpful, professional and friendly.
