“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

I had to book a room for four people for one night on a short notice and this hotel showed up as giving exceptional value. It is located in the city center in front of Hyde park with lots of buses and a train station just across the road. You possibly possibly walk to Darling harour (20 minutes across).

Another great advantage is free parking (rare in Sydney city center) though you have to advise the hotel in advance if you want it.

The hotel itself was a nice 4 star property. Clean and modern facilities, comfortable beds and clean washrooms. Staff was professional. Nothing too remarkable on the positive or negative side.

Hotel was in a great location but was dirty and tired looking. I agree with other comments that it is definitely more like a backpackers than a hotel. Also not worth the self assessed 4 stars or the money they charge. Cleaning of the room was ber half hearted and cleaners left our door unlocked and open while we were out. Also if you do choose to use this hotel make sure that you get the quote in writing as they charged us almost $50 a night more than was quoted on the phone. When I complained and said I would write a poor review on Trip Advisor the reception staff were supremely indifferent. I would not stay there again.

Comfy beds. Pillows a bit hard. Breakfast included - continental in the fridge of the room - but adequate and convenient. Didn't have towels or breakfast for the 3rd person but brought them up straight away when we phoned them. From first phone call to book and at check in staff helpful and friendly. Thanks for a pleasant overnight stay

Positives: We chose the Hyde Park Inn because of its excellent location -- across from Hyde Park, and within walking distance of the main sights. Hotels in Sydney are quite expensive, so price was a consideration as well. (We paid $209 for each of 3 nights.) Parking is available (underground) and free. There is also a free laundry available to guests.
The young lady at the front desk was very courteous and helpful. The room is quite large and has a nice view of the park. It has a kitchenette and a very light breakfast (cereal, bread) is left in the fridge every day.

Negatives: The noise was terrible. We booked one of the deluxe studio rooms which were supposed to be quieter but we must have been on the lowest deluxe floor. Even with the windows closed we could hear constant traffic and conversation on the street below. It felt like we were on the first floor with the window open! This went on all night.
We discovered in the middle of the last night that the air conditioner didn't work. We hadn't needed it earlier.
The room itself was fairly clean but the bedspread was stained. The kitchen did not receive a thorough cleaning each day. (We washed our own dishes and put things away.)

This hotel was in a fantastic location and the views were awesome which is what you expect when you pay so much money. But I wouldn't stay here again. The hotel reception staff were not friendly. The walls were thin and even though the management left a note alerting travelers that renovations were under way within the hotel they said the noise would begin at 9am and finish by 6pm each evening. This was false. The banging and drilling started at 6am and finished late at night.
I didn't have a good nights sleep for 4 nights.
