Sydney is, in fact, the home of Duncan McCartney (he's Laura's boyfriend for those dear readers who may not know, and Laura is my sister, and my name is Dave). Where Duncan is from specifically, within Sydney, we don't know. Was he raised right in the downtown core? Is he from Manly Beach or Bondi Beach, or one of the other many beaches along the …
Tuesday 14th Jan 2013:
Arrived in Sydney at around 5pm after a lovely flight... except for the fact that we had a screaming child behind us and the person infront of me decided to recline their chair to MAX so I had to read my magazine up close and personal. Lucky I'm short sighted just quietly.
I thought the train to the city was …
Day 1. Holiday got off to a less than perfect start!
We received SMS notifiation that our flight has been delayed by 24 hours. We were initially leaving at 0400 to fly from Melbourne to Sydney so we booked (with out consulting our travel agent....) accomodation in sydney for the night. It turns out that Qantas automattically also cancels your …
"I come from a land down under...." (by Men at Work) - song reminds me of Oz!! Arrived into Sydney under a bright blue sky but one of the most uncomfortable flights we have experienced so far! Singapore Airlines thought it would be cool to put in some metal foot rests which, when raised, dig into your shins, and when lowered, fit only one foot!! …
Jeudi 1er Mai, j'ai beau chercher du muguet a Sydney, je n'en trouve pas. Cette année, j'espère que quelqu'un aura pensé a acheter ce petit brin de bonheur, que j'avais l'habitude d'offrir a toutes mes femmes du bureau, j'ai une petite pensée pour elles. Je me retrouve donc a Sydney, et devinez quoi, il fait toujours aussi dégueulasse, c'est la …

Historical Traveler Reviews Metro Hotel on Pitt Sydney
The location on Pitt Street near the corner of Bathurst Street is really convenient, with Town Hall Station, the QVB, Hyde Park, Museum Station and numerous bus routes just a minute away.
Booked this hotel as it was relatively cheap. Booked a superior room as had read that the standard rooms were small. The superior room was still quite small but it was adequate. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked and the room was clean.
The hotel is ideally located, within walking distance of most places.
The hotel cashes AUD travellers cheques for no charge which was extremely useful.
Stayed in the IBIS on Darling Harbour at the start of our trip and would probably stay in the Metro Hotel over the IBIS as it is cheaper and for the amount of time you spend in the Hotel in as good a location.
Good Hotel - Great Location
I would recommend the Metro hotel - standard rooms are on the small side but very clean and beds are very comfortable. Staff were friendly and I had no issues. And great location!
Great hotel, great location
The hotel was good value for money! It's location is super: next to chinatown and only a 15-20 minutes walk to the opera (with a lot of nice restaurants in the neighbourhood!)
The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpfull.
If you 're looking for a nice hotel in Sydney...this is the one!
You get what you pay for and for us that was location. Within walking distance to all sights. Rooms however are small and walls are paper thin. Staff were friendly with the exception of housekeeping who continuously ignored "Do not disturb" signs and were sloppy, barely making the bed on some days.
We got what we wanted which was location and did not spend much time in the hotel. There are numerous small cafes which do good value breakfast nearby
Would try somewhere else next time.
The metro was great!
Two of us stayed in a twin room at the metro hotel on pitt street for 4 nights.
It was everything that we wanted!
Close to the shops and night life, a short walk down the road to the monorail, the markets and darling harbour.
Everything was very accessible to the hotel which was clean, comfy and a friendly place to stay right in the heart of the city.
If your wanting a hotel that is value for money and in the city centre, then I would highly reccommend this hotel.
Only stayed here for a night but we were very impressed. The Metro is classified as a three star hotel and as we got a great price online we were not expecting much. Our room was certainly small, but it was well equipped and tastefully decorated. The room overlooked an inner courtyard so the view was more or less of a brick wall, but this was not a problem - we did not come to Sydney to look out the window!! Had a great night's sleep - the room was quiet and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was clean with a great shower. Checked out too early for breakfast, but even if you did not want to have it at the hotel, there are many cafes nearby. Location of the Metro is excellent - near to Hyde Park, the QVB shopping arcade and great transport links to get you around town. Will definately stay here again.
Had a great time!
My family and I loved the Metro. We had just come from another hotel which had been very bad and asked about a weekly deal--they knocked AU $30 off of the initial rate, making it less than the bad hotel. The rooms are a bit small and ours was shaped a bit funny, but the beds are extremely comfortable and had piles of pillows, a duvet, etc. Rooms were well appointed, quiet, and had spacious bathrooms. We were right by the elevator and still had no trouble with noise! The location is great as well and the desk staff were fantastic, letting us store our luggage for two weeks while we vacationed in Queensland. There was also a fresh bottle of water for each of us every day. I would highly recommend this hotel!
For our trip to Sydney from Hawaii, my wife and I wanted the best deal for our money while staying as close to the action as possible. That is exactly what we got. The Metro Hotel on Pitt was more than we expected in regards to quality, service, price, and undoubtedly - location. Admittedly, the room was quite small, but it must have been refurbished fairly recently because it was immaculate with very modern furnishings and decorations, fixtures, etc. I was very impressed. What the hotel lacked in amenities, it made up for in location. There was no fitness center in the hotel, but we went running in Hyde Park a block away. The staff a great job of going out of their way to make sure that we were taken care of. We didn't dine at the restaurant located inside the hotel (which seemed to be suitable), but there were lots of great resaurants all within a block or two. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to be in the heart of Sydney but doesn't want to spend a few hundred dollars a night to do it.
...particularly having read the other reviewers comments! We arrived at this hotel having just flown in from Singapore, expecting the worst, having read the one review that we could find about the hotel. Having just spent the previous few nights in the Shangri-la hotel, we were by no means shy of quality.
