We began our visit to Sydney, checking in to the Sir Stamford. Most importantly, after surviving the plane trip, the staff, especially Krill, were friendly and helpful - accommodating to Yanks with a million questions. The hotel has a bit of "old world formality" with an Aussie twist. Their breakfast possibilities were varied: either from the buffet or the menu....

We booked into this hotel on-line and looked forward to our stay of 3 nights beginning 4th April 2016. Being so central was a bonus. Compared to 5 star hotels in the UK this did not match up. Morning 1 we got no cooked breakfast at 6.30 even though it states that breakfast starts then. Breakfast 2 was good but...

Great Location & Beautiful rooms, the staff were so very helpful. Quick easy trip from the airport, close to all Sydney has to offer.. My daughter and I were very happy with our stay. Room service breakfast and a swim in the pool are a must!

My lovely lady and I visit this hotel every six months and we don't even bother to look anywhere else - why would you when you find perfection. We travelled from the airport by train and walked up a small hill to the hotel. Much cheaper and more timely than a taxi. The hotel is 5 minutes from the Opera...

Hard to be critical about the Sir Stamford. So I won't be. It is exactly what it is, i.e., an old-school luxury hotel that caters to the moneyed crowd that can't quite stretch to the Four Seasons. And that is fine. The room was large and the beds comfortable without being too soft. The bathroom was huge with a tub...

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.
