    The room was substandard, even for hotel accommodation. The facilities were dirty and almost everything was broken. The location was so noisy, all night long, that it was impossible to sleep. I saw one very large cockroach. I was not game to go looking for...More

    I spent two nights at the Criterion, and maybe should have shopped around more. Staying here is basically like camping, but you get your own locked room. That said, the location is great. I don't spend much time in my room when traveling, so I...More

    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
