Hyde Park Inn
Travel Blogs from Sydney
Hadn't really planned anything bar a walk to Circular Quay to check out The Opera House and the Harbour Bridge but no sooner had we left the hotel than we spotted something going on in Hyde Park and lo and behold we had stumbled on a parade - so an early 12th for us! The Australians are very good at commemorating as evidenced by numerous memorials …
Quantis not only have self checkin but also self bag drop - works well. We arrived early afternoon. Train from airport to Museum station. Our hotel is just across the road from the station overlooking Hyde Park which has a large memorial. Lunch and a catch up with Bryan and Lesley at Scruffy Murphys. Down to the Rocks area next to the Harbour …
"Frühaufstehen" war angesagt, da wir das heutige Feuerwerk von bevorzugter Lage aus sehen wollten. Morgens um 10 Uhr reihten wir uns bei strahlend-heissem Wetter in die schon ziemlich lange Warteschlange ein. Unsere wichtigsten Utensilien: Sonnencrème, Regenschirm den wir als Sonnenschirm benutzten und natürlich viel Wasser!
Die Schlange …
Heute ist vorerst einmal Silvia's und Peter's letzter Tag in Australien.
Wir waren seit dem 1. November zusammen unterwegs und haben unzählige wunderschöne Erlebnisse zu viert sammeln dürfen.
Da ihr Flugzeug Sydney erst am Abend verlässt, unternehmen wir einen letzten Stadtbummel zum Paddy's Market wo wir Souvenirs für die …
... that it's a great shame that we didn't get to see the wonderful skyline of Sydney and all. Well you'll be wrong. We headed up the 310 metre Westfield owned Sky Tower. We booked a table for lunch on the rotating restaurant that was housed in the viewing deck of the tower, had a delightful course of pork belly and took in the wonderful views of Sydney and beyond. The restuarant took a full hour to rotate once which meant you could enjoy a course and a drink, take photographs ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyde Park Inn Sydney
Cannot praise the staff at this hotel highly enough. We booked it for Dec-Jan 2005-2006 break on the strength of the recommendations on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. We had a massive room with kitchenette, air-con, multi-channel TV, balcony and nice bathroom overlooking Hyde Park. They delivered cereals, bread, tea, coffee, juice etc to our room each day for breakfast (even though when we made our booking they said they did not provide breakfast). Staff did everything in their power to help us with things such as phoning round for car rental quotes, making bookings etc and were friendly, genuine and knowledgeable. There is a free laundry room on site which we did not discover until the end of our stay and, even though this is a city centre hotel, they provide free car-parking (even paying for a nearby public car-park for guests, when their own hotel car park is full!). Location was also ideal - opposite the road from a tube station and within walking distance of many attractions, including Chinatown and Darling Harbour (even Circular Quay if you don't mind a long walk). Very reasonably priced and a great hotel.
Recommended hotel on Hyde Park
Enjoyed four nights at the Hyde park Inn last week. Booked a superior non-smoking room through the hotels own website for $165 a night with breakfast in-room. Double bed, single, sofa and kitchen facilities.
Excellent position across from Hyde Park and Museum Train station. 20-30 minutes walk to circular quay. 10 minutes to Darling Harbour/Chinatown.
Staff seemed pleasant but had little to do with them other than getting washing powder for the free laundry and paying the bill.
Well recommended hotel in an expensive (for hotels), busy metrolpolis.
Forty bucks including tip from the airport.
Great location and value for money.
My family stayed here for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean, well maintained and provided enough space for a family of 4. The continental breakfast was great value for money and having your own kitchen a bonus when you have young children. Its location was great, we walked everywhere. Having a place to park your car safely was also an added bonus. The hotel staff were very friendly and catered for all our needs well. We will be coming back again!!!
Very nice for price
Stayed here for 1 nite in October. After reading all the reviews I thought it would be the best place for the price and location. It's right across from Hyde Park which has a nice view. The room we had (Deluxe Family Room) was spacious and fit the five of us nicely. Balcony a little small but the room itself was nice size and also includes a little kitchenette area, dining area and sofa with bench. The bathroom was also spacious. The hotel staff was helpful and even flagged down 2 taxis for us for dinner. Less than 30 minutes walk to the Opera House. Ate at Wolfie's Grill along the harbor and was excellent. Food was very good and reasonable...especially since you have an amazing view of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Couldn't have been happier with our choice.
Great value and location!
Hyde Park is well worth the price. In Sydney, you can't beat the location. Close to everything! My wife and I have been here every year since we discovered it in 2000.
Hyde Park Inn - fabulous
We have just returned from a long weekend break in Sydney and wish to convey to Hyde Park Inn and their staff our grateful thanks for such an awesome stay.
The staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They were extremely knowledgeable and provided us with all we needed to know.
We chose a deluxe room which was clean, spacious with a great view over Hyde Park and sited within easy walking distance of shopping and all the major entertainments and tourist attractions.
Highly recommend this hotel to all travellers
Stayed recently at this hotel and found the room nice and big. It was comfortable and I liked having a continental breaky in the room for my own choice and time to eat. There really is no view from the room as the road is busy and the windows don't open, but it is so handy to all of central Sydney I would definitely recommend this hotel as a good place to stay if you can afford it.
The reception staff were very pleasant and accomodating. No problems at all.
Good value for money
3 of us stayed here over the New Year Period 2004 when prices in Sydney skyrocket and it provided excellent value for money. We had a deluxe room which was spacious and a good bathroom. Beds were very comfortable, fully equipped kitchen. Laundry facilities available for guests, which was a good place to swap information with other guests. Continental breakfast delivered daily to room, daily cleaning etc. Complimentary daily newspaper. Front desk staff extremely helpful and attentive, asking questions with no problems and organizing taxis when needed (not easy on NY Eve!).
Excellent location on Hyde Park, easy access to public transport and shopping amenities. Good value for money as opposed to paying high harbour prices for other hotels.
Would stay there again.
Nice place to stay
My family and I saty there for 1 week (August). It is located in central of city, across from Hyde Park, so it is very convenient to go everywhere such as Darling Harbour, Opera House and The Rocks, Myer Department Store. etc. In fact, we usually walked many placese, and it just takes approximately 30 minutes on foot. Also they have a luggage storage room, so if you arrive earlier than check-in time, you can keep your luggage there. Not only that, the staff members are very kind and they were willing to help us. They delivered continental breakfast to our room, and both room and bathroom was spacious and clean. However, it is near main road, so at night time, it was a little bit noisy because of crazy drivers. I stronly recommend you to stay Hyde Park Inn when you go to Sydney.
My family and I stayed in Hyde Park Inn, Sydney for approximately 14 days during our recent (July/August) trip to Australia. Hyde Park Inn is ideally located in the Central Business District (CBD) which is a short walk from the city centre shopping area and the beautiful Darling Harbour. The hotel is clean, superbly maintained and the staff are magnificent. The hotel provides a continental breakfast and daily room cleaning. Hotel room rates are very reasonable - we stayed in one of the Deluxe rooms - very spacious, comfortable and clean. There is 24-hour free internet access on the first floor and secretarial services are very efficient. In addition Hyde Park Inn is blessed with good management and superb front desk staff. If you stay at Hyde Park Inn, Sydney you won't be disappointed - no worries!!
