Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel 59 Sydney
Not for families
This hotel is what it says it is. It's cheap and clean and the owner is friendly. The rooms are small and basic but to be expected for the price. The decor could do with freshening up a bit as well.
However, we checked out before we'd even spent a night there. We went with 3 children and when exploring the area we found that the red light district was on the next street with strip clubs and sex shops prominent. It didn't help that the Explorer bus stop nearest the hotel was on this street thus making it unavoidable.
It is also a fairly long walk into the centre of Sydney - further than it looks on the maps.
There are some nice looking restaurants and bistros in the area but we didn't stay long enough to try them.
On the whole, if you are strapped for cash and want somewhere clean and cheap it's fine. But not for children or if you're not into basic with a capital B!
We are located in a residential street with a retirement village opposite us.
I am sorry hotel 59 did not work out for this particular guest.
Hotel 59 is nice
We stayed in a double room at Hotel 59 for a total of 10 days(divided into two increments), and found the proprietor, George, to be very helpful. The place is quiet, clean, and comfortable, and within walking distance to my friend's flat, as well as the fabulous Botanical Gardens, the extraordinary Bayswater Brasserie(right across the street; one of the best restaurants in Sydney), and to all public transportation. Nice little hotel in a great location!
Great value and good location
We enjoyed our stay at Hotel 59. We stayed in a superior room designed for three people. The bed for the third was in its own little alcove. Everything was very clean. The room is a bit shabby around the edges, but overall comfortable and a good value. The location was great. About a 20 minute walk to the harbor and a 10 minute walk to the Kings Cross restaurants. We walked to Paddington in about 30 minutes. The only problem was some noise at night. The room was in the front of the house which may have been the problem. It got worse on the weekend. If you can sleep through a little noise, then it's worth it. The hot breakfasts are great and substancial. I would stay there again!
Hotel 59- not for wheelchairs
I went to check in there last year but very steep steps (about 21) so it's not made for wheelchairs; that's why I only stayed there 1 night.
Cosy & friendly
For the price, you can't go wrong! We weren't sure what we were in for staying in Kings Cross, but we were really happy with our choice. It's central to everything, the room was cosy and clean. The people of Hotel 59 are friendly and the brekky was a great start to the day. We definitely would stay there again and recommend it to anyone.
Great location and price!
If you want to stay in the centre of Sydney, in a boutique hotel or somewhere ultra modern with room service look somewhere else. If you want a place somewhere with it's own identity, a place that feels like home and a place where you are looked after - stay here!
We stayed here at the beginning and end of our Australia trip with our four year old. It's a simple hotel with few frills and a great cafe for breakfast. Our room (with a kitchen) was large and cheap. George, the fantastically friendly owner, constantly works hard to keep the place spick and span!
The hotel is sandwiched between a laundry (very handy) and a brilliant Thai takeaway / cafe. Internet, bottle shop, doughnuts (for the 4 year old)can all be found up the road.
King's Cross subway is 5-10 mins walk away, so you're ideally placed to get into Sydney or out to the beaches (Bondi is the next stop on the opposite line). The nightlife is near enough for you to experience but far away enough for you not to hear it!
When we closed our door at night it didn't feel that we were in a hotel but more like staying at a friends house.
Loved Hotel 59, would stay there again!
My wife and I stayed at Hotel 59 for 6 nights and it was an extremely pleasant time. The owner Goerge was very friendly and helped us with directions and tips on where to go. If you are looking for something not too fancy but nice, quiet and clean then this is the place to stay. The price included your choice of a delicious breakfast and that was good because the price of an avg breakfast in Sydney was anywhere from $7-15AUD per person depending on where you went so that saved us $15-30 per day on breakfast. i would definitely recommend Hotel 59
Hotel 59 is GREAT!
If your looking for a reasonably priced room that is clean, comfortable and has a great location then Hotel 59 will not disappoint. George the owner is very friendly and helpful. The room came with breakfast from the downstairs cafe and every meal was delicious. It took about 20 to 30 minutes to walk to the Botanical Garden, Opera Hall, Darling Harbor, the Bridge or The Rocks areas. By subway (2 blocks away) it is only 10-15 minutes. The hotel is located on a quieter street only two blocks from Darlinghurst Road, the action center for the Kings Cross area. Try the Iguana Restaurant (1 1/2 blocks away) if you would like to try some tasty Kangaroo. If we make it back I will stay at Hotel 59 again.
Cosy and Clean!
My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this B n B online and as we were on a budget holiday, we decided to give Hotel 59 a shot for its reasonable rates, good location and complimentary breakfasts. We didnt go with very high hopes but boy were we pleasantly surprised! Yes, indeed the rooms were a tad small for our liking but I was incredibly pleased with the cosiness and cleanliness maintained by the owners. Our sheets were white and crisp, the room smelled fresh and clean and most importantly, the bathroom was maintained really well which was really crucial for me as I really cannot tolerate dirty, smelly and dingy bathrooms. In addition, the location of Hotel 59 was excellent, with the station within walking distance and major attractions nearby as well. And I just have to praise the owner George for his delicious daily breakfasts and great hospitality. On our first day of arrival, he gave us a rather detailed overrun of the places we should visit and the cheapest way to get around. All in all, I have to say I was really lucky to choose hotel 59 for my accommodation and would definitely go back to stay if visiting sydney again.
VERY GOOD VALUE! Near Kings Cross - close to night life and bars, but far enough away that it is quiet and tranquil. Close to the opera house, transportation, tube stop. Not luxury, but very good value for money. George is very nice and helpful, and the breakfast is fantastic! Enjoyed your stay!

... our way into a good position to watch the amazing show projected onto the Customs House building. We had seen a little of the show the other night so knew we had to watch the full show. So spectacular, certainly a highlight. Hope I can download some of it for you.
So now two weary people board the train again for our last trip back to caravan. It has been a great week in Sydney and tomorrow we head south for home, collecting Koby on the way.
... city, but to a different parDarling Harbor. Our hotel room is on the 10th floor overlooking the entire harbor. We enjoyed drinks at the rooftop bar of the hotel as we watched the sun set. As I drank my mango bellini, I was scared of the thought that I might slowly be turning into my grandmother - the bellini queen.
We ate dinner at a restaurant in the harbour. ...
... navigate and has a lot of outdoor shops and restaurants to see. We explored The Rocks, which is one collection of these, and ate lunch at The Rocks Cafe. The menu had a couple of unique items that caught our eye…the kangaroo burger and the crocodile burger. Now, what do you think my first question was to the waitress when she walked up? You guessed it- "Is the crocodile burger real crocodile?” Now, apparently ...
... found it impossible to pronounce and insisted on adding at least another 6 "o"s into it. Can you imagine ((I think you can).
Anyway, after all that was done with we ordered ourselves a beer down on the waterfront. 30c today and very humid. Ordering a beer was quite difficult as you cannot order a "pot" as you can in Victoria, we now have to order a"schooner".
