Stayed two nights during Vivid festival. Hotel location is very convenient within walking distance of Circular Quay. Walk from Circular Quay does involve a short uphill section to get to the hotel entrance.

Our room was clean and tidy. The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to help us with any special needs. We had a drink and a meal at the bar and it was really good. There was an open fire at the bar which really added to the atmosphere.

Sir Stamford hotel has the conservative ambience of yesteryear. Quiet, calm, polite atmosphere meant all aspects of check in and out were easy and smooth. Room was just above main entrance but as quiet as could be - slept through to 8.30am without a blink! Room was roomy and comfortable if a little dated.

This hotel oozes old world charm of the Art Deco era. Beautiful fire place in the lobby. I stayed in room 208 which was very spacious and had a large lounge room and bedroom with a decent sized bathroom, hall and powder room. The only negative was the car park.

Staff were friendly & wonderful. antique decor. & lit fireplace gave the lounge extra atmosphere. heated small pool but did the job for me and there is a gym, but it's close to everything, so walking is an easy stroll. Transport to airport bus took a $16 fare door to door. Much easier & cheaper than the train.

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.
