Well, it's a week later but I am getting to our week's adventures now. We had a good time in Sydney, the day out on the Ferry was all our favourite probably because the sun was shining and we saw some amazing sights.
The 1st day began exploring our surroundings a bit. The hotel was in Chinatown, a big, big Chinatown and not too far from …
Hey guys Got back from Sydney a few hours ago and had an amazing time!! Eventually got to do my skydive and it was the best thing ever. Would actually do another one (not straight away tho) it was higher than I thought it was gonna be but still the most amazing thing I've ever done. After my skydive I went around Sydney to see the opera house and …
I always forget how much I love cities until I find myself in one after a long absence. It only took a couple minutes of walking the streets of Sydney for that feeling to hit me. The hustle and bustle of people of all walks of life walking here and there. I just soaked it all in.
Those first blissful moments were enjoyed during our walk …
Maddy woke us all up bright & early this morning at around 6am... about 3 hours early for her, but still a solid 11 hours of sleep, so not bad! We hung around for a few hours hunting up a good breakfast (quite a challenge in this country) and then after treking to Central Station (similar to Grand Central in NYC) we took the train across town …
Bonjour à tous,
Alors me voici officiellement rendu en Australie. Après plus de 25 heures de vol de Mtl, sans compter les escales à Calgary et à Vancouver, je peux vous dire que j'ai eu un merveilleux choc à Sydney à mon arrivée le 19 octobre dernier : gros soleil et un 25 degré Celsius ! Malgré que ce trajet puisse vous sembler long à …

Good location, but not much for amenities. Needs some updating!

Historical Traveler Reviews Capitol Square Hotel Sydney
We stayed at Capitol Square Hotel in Sydney September 13-16, 2005. Overall I would give this hotel a strong three stars. It is comparable to a decent Howard Johnson and Holiday Inn Express. We were out and about and mainly used the hotel for the purpose of sleep & shower after a long day of touristy activities.
Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights - wonderful location right in the middle of chinatown next to capitol theatre - a couple of blocks away from the central station.
The rooms were ok - clean and well appointed - the only disappointment was the bathroom - looks like it was built in the early 80s - but kept clean and tidy...
The only problem for this hotel is the layout - the lobby is tiny and I did not manage to find the coffee house until the last day
In conclusion - it was an Ok hotel for its price - especially one so centrally located in Sydney...
We stayed there for three days in January of this year. Excellent hotel with good facilities including swimming pool. Nice friendly staff and the holtel is spotless. Room comfortable, we were on the 29th floor which offered stunning views of the city.
Booked a non smoking room but none available on first night and no apology from staff. Reception staff unfriendly / unhelpful and arguing with guests on frequent observations. Room small and grotty.
However great central location.
Hi, Unfortunately we stayed here for one night and found it to be terrible. We initially got a key for a room on the 2nd floor and wherever you walked, the floorboards creaked. When I took the key back downstairs and send it is not a good room, the man said that the whole of the 2nd floor moves! We got a room on a different level and found it was sooooo small and tiny, you had to side-step past one bed to get to the other! We cancelled the next night and they said b/c we booked on the internet we have to go through the online internet booking. When we contacted the online internet booking, they said we had to go through the hotel. It was "back and forth" blaming one to the other. I would not recommend staying here at all. It is a fire hazard too with only 1 lift in the whole building. Hope people from overseas do not book it and then are very disappointed. Thankyou for your time.
The Best Vacation Ever!!!
Great friendly staff that offered the best value ever, in a superb Location. WELL DONE CAPITOL SQUARE!!!
Good Value, Good Location
I stayed here the last few days of December, 2002. The room was small, but adequate. The rate was very good for the convenient location. The busy corner location made the room noisy most of the time and the building is only about 4 floors. I have no staff complaints. They were very responsive to my multiple emails and they answered my questions.
Breakfast was quiet and comfortable and there was an OK, not fantastic selection - perfect for the $110 USD rate. The building is old and seems to be constructed of wood since the floors creaked. My only concern was with my chances of escaping any fire. 10 minute taxi ride to the Opera House and The Rocks. If you are on a budget and still want convenience within Sydney, this is a good place to stay.
Forget trying to book a room here!
Forget trying to book at this hotel, the reservation staff/system is terrible! I e-mailed and was told they had availability for the dates and type of room I wanted and asked to send in credit card details. I did so, but then received a second e-mailed saying I had to book online. So, I went online and booked and then waited and waited for 3 days with no response. I ended up e-mailing them (yet again) and received a reply saying they had no availability !
Don't waste a week like I did, save yourself the hassle and book somewhere else.
Good value for money
This hotel is conveniently situated only a short distance from Chinatown and Darling Harbour. The tram stops right at the door!
Although the rooms are small, they are very clean and modestly furnished. The reception staff were very busy and we would have appreciated quicker service. They weren't as friendly as they could have been either although they were kind enough to upgrade us to a queen deluxe room for free when we requested it. The parking station next door was convenient and the rates were decent. Our only complaint was the restaurant - the food was very ordinary and I wouldn't bother eating there again, however I would definitely recommend the hotel as it represents fantastic value for money!!
Once in it was OKAY
We stayed there in December 2001 and dispite a number of problems with our booking the stay was quite good. The main problem was they had lost our booking and rang us the day before to tell us we didn't have a room. They had our phone number but not our booking??? In the end they found us a room. On arrival the staff were great, room small but spotless. We didn't eat there but other guests told us the breakfasts were good. Location is fantastic, very short walk to cinemas, entertainment centre, Darling Harbour, Paddy's Market & Capital Square Shopping Centre. Starbucks is also right outside & plenty of public transport on the doorstep. Definitly not 5 star but a good mid range hotel.
