Stunning Hotel Amazing Location

Posted Apr 11, 2014
Pros: Great location, great choice of local restaurants - just brilliant really!
Cons: Was disturbed one night by a party on the main part of the building but it did stop at a decent time.
Location: You have the whole of Sydney on your doorstep. Fabulous walk through the botanic gardens to the opera house and circular key.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this stunning hotel in the heart of Sydney. the rooms were fabulous, the staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a bargain - amazingly! i wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

LOVELY HOTEL CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: walking distance to opera house, Sydney Harbor Bridge, etc. down pillows, down comforter, quiet, dark.
Cons: n/a. it was great.
Location: Famous pie shop just out door and to the left. CHINATOWN: don't miss it!!! Bridge Climb. Taronga Zoo. Bondi & Manly Beaches. Great Restaurants!!
My husband and teenaged son stayed in a loft room. Room was VERY quiet and could be made very dark, which we like. Had 1 1/2 baths. We were mainly in room for sleeping as there is so much to do. Lobby is tres chic with club music in background. We had drinks at bar one evening and that was nice. There is so much to do in Sydney. Walk through Botanic Gardens. Bridge Climb. Walk through China Town and eat at the amazing, very affordable restaurants. Taronga Zoo. Manly Beach; Mex Cafe at Manly Beach. Bondi Beach and Icebergs Pool. Oyster Bar right near Opera House. China Doll Restaurant. Aki Indian Restaurant.

Comfortable room away from the hustle and bustle

Posted Mar 24, 2014
Pros: Very comfortable beds, great bath and decent sized room. The staff were friendly and obliging too.
We had a really comfortable twin room in Wooloomooloo at the Blue Hotel. The beds were great and the room was a very decent size. We stayed here three times during a 1month break for up to 3 days at a time and were very glad we picked the hotel.

A short business stay

Posted Mar 21, 2014
Pros: It was a W. The bar is very good. The bell boys have nothing to do, so are very helpful.
Cons: Not much. It is what it is. Too bad the pool is so short.
Location: I like the location because it was close to my friend's residence. It is not easy to get to CBD, but not difficult. The buses are not frequent
There are no king size beds apparently without having to climb the loft stairs. Two levels are always extra work and should be cheaper.

Unique Hotel

Posted Mar 17, 2014
Pros: Loved the appearance of this Hotel both inside and outside. The room was unique and over looked water which gave a good view.
Cons: The swimming pool was a little cold and would have been better if it was a bit warmer.
Location: Very close to the botanical gardens. Eating places near by.
On arrival at the Hotel we were met instantly and greeted by the concierge team who could not be more polite and helpful. We arrived at the Hotel much earlier than the booking in time but again were welcomed. The bed covers were turned back at night ready for use which also made you feel special. The room was clean and well maintained. The swimming pool was secure from intruders and was of good size.

Nice but 5 star?

Posted Mar 16, 2014
Pros: Ambience / location
Cons: Stupid to say but toilet paper was like sand paper!
A nice hotel. Attention to detail though could be better when it comes to the little things. Stay was a gift for my brother and his wife for their birthdays and anniversary. Had rang the concierge and arranged a bottle of wine to be in their room on arrival. Unfortunately they didn't receive it and what's worse is that they charged me for it!!!!

A relaxing

Posted Mar 5, 2014
I had a fabulous time at Blue Sydney. The restoration and renovation of this stunning wharf is charming and exquisite. The Luxury Marina View Double Double room I stayed in was delightful. The view over the marina and harbour is stunning, and the amenities and furnishings of the room are modern and in very good condition. The bathroom is modern, clean and spacious. The beds are very comfortable, and the turn down service is a special touch. If, like me, you prefer staying at hotels where you can retreat in comfort after a busy day of touring, the Blue Sydney is perfect. The hotel offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD, although it is in walking distance to the Botanical Gardens, CBD, Circular Quay, the Opera House, and restaurants and cafes in Potts Point and Elizabeth Bay. If there is one room for improvement, it would be the front of hotel staff. They were quite aloof, and lacked a friendly and engaged manner that you might expect. But even with that issue, I highly recommend staying in a Luxury Marina View room.

A Pleasure to stay

Posted Feb 23, 2014
Pros: Location, comfort, facilities, staff
Cons: I couldn't find a fault
Location: Pleasantly situated by the wharf, good restaurants and bars and easy walking distance to shops etc.
I had a really positive experience, the location is excellent for what I needed to do. It was a business trip, finishing off by catching up with friends in Sydney. I would particularly like to mention Tony one of the concierge team, he was professional and vey helpful. Thanks for a great stay.
