An unsettling title for a blog entry from thousands of miles away, I know.
This morning, Sara and I planned to walk to the Sydney Jewish Museum. It is a gorgeous day here and we followed several maps to the museum, which was tucked away on a quiet corner. We only got almost lost once. We found the museum and the woman at the front desk …
Wow, we had a busy day today! We woke up early to take the subway to the harbour in preparation for our BridgeClimb. The subway ticket was $6.40 for a roundtrip ticket, and they don't have day passes that we can tell. Thank goodness we left a long time to travel there because we walked around in about 4 circles (ok that would be stupid, it was more …
We have arrived in Sydney and our hotel is scary. When the shuttle driver dropped us off, we told him that this couldn't possibly be our hotel and to take us back. It's called the Park Regis City Centre, look it up, pictures can be deceiving. We knew that something was fishy when they made us pay for our whole stay upon checking in. I demeanded to …
Afgelopen maandag zijn we na een reis van 24 uur aangekomen in Sydney en hebben we een taxi genomen naar het Park Regis hotel. Na aanmelding in ons hotel en daar onze koffers achtergelaten te hebben, zijn we een korte verkenning door Sydney begonnen.
Vandaag (dinsdag) hebben we de volgende locaties bezocht:
- Sydney Harbour Bridge …
Wasn't really sure what to do today, even when I woke up, but it ended up being a rather nice last day in Sydney. To start with had to switch hotels to the far less glamourous Park Regis. I then caught the monorail, just because I had seen it winding through the streets and I hadn't been on it. Turns out you actually cant see much from it …

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Regis City Centre Sydney
Would not go here again.
We were with United Vacations and they picked this hotel. There was a big moth problem here (apparently all over Sydney) in Oct 2004 but we didn't find it in other hotels. The rooms are extremely small - this is an old, no frills hotel and I was with my wife. This is good if you are young and travelling with backpackers etc. but definitely not a place to go if you are on your honeymoon or are looking for a comfy and cosy place to stay. There are plenty of options (Hotel Ibis) @ this price range.
Not as bad as feared
Following earlier reviews of this hotel we were a little worried as to what we would fid, but we were pleasantly surprised.
Only 1 lift of the 2 for the hotel was working, and at checkin/checkout times it did get a little congested. Also it seemed to have a mind of it's own, and would only open the outside doors when it felt like it.
The rooms were very basic, and could have used a lick of paint, but they were clean and comfortable and that's all you really need when you're only using it as a base.
The staff were very friendly indeed and recommended sights, places to eat etc. Overall, we've stayed in better hotels, but with much worse service.
We stayed here in September for five nights and had four rooms for a party of eight. We really enjoyed this hotel as a budget property. Yes, the rooms are a bit small but that bothered none of us as we spent little time in them. The shower-only bath was fine and water pressure was adequate for a good shower. I was concerned about earlier posts regarding the carpet and made sure I had brought slippers. No worries! The carpets were worn but clean in all the rooms we had. The bath towels were amazing, larger and fluffier than Hiltons I have stayed at. We did have a light that didn't work in our room, and the last night we were there another bulb went out that we couldn't get fixed until the next day. Directly across the street was a small convenience store with fresh fruit and two doors down from that was a McDonalds with a cafe for morning mochas. There was an ATM on each side of the hotel as you exited and up one block was a Kinkos for checking email ($6/hour). The front desk couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful with whatever we asked them. We had cars the last two days we were there, and parking was $10/day. The garage was a bit small, and parking was a bit tight but we managed just fine. As stated by others, the location is wonderful, and we were able to walk to many things we wanted to visit. All in all, for the money we paid, I would recommend this property.
good location right in the center of town, room was ok, bit shabby but we never spent much time in there only in the room to sleep and wash. i could laze around in a room anywhere in the world but i was not here for that. good location, clean but a little worn , it did well for my needs
This hotel is situated in an excellent location, just across Town Hall train station. Very convenient, right in the CBD.
Only good thing I can say about this place is the location. Rooms look as though they have not been updated in 30 yrs. Phones did not work the entire time we were there. The rooms are small, traffic sounds were awful. I would never stay here again especially considering the price is not cheap either.
Wouldn't stay here again!
About the only good thing I can say about this hotel is that it is in a fabulous location! It badly needs rennovating i.e: carpet grotty, door looked like it had been kicked in at some stage. The phones in the rooms weren't working so had the added hassle of having to go down to reception every time I wanted to use the phone or to collect messages.
Lifts dodgy....not reliable. Housekeeping staff not attentive - would not replace cups and saucers - would give them a quick wipe and put them back. You could run your finger over the Television and windowsill and it would be black from dust! Good shower, but unsightly bathroom with chipboard coming off the walls! This hotel would be great if they just spent some money and fixed it up!
Great place to stay!
Great location!! Nice room, well-furnished.
Fabulous location, great hospitality.
A comfortable hotel in a fabulous location. Was able to walk virtually anyway. Helpful staff, rooms were standard, however comfortable. We found it was definitely good value for money. If you are looking for 5 star this is not the place, but if you want a comfortable, clean and friendly hotel at a good price this is the place.
This hotel was not spectacular. If you are looking for a nice hotel, pretty rooms, friendly front desk staff, good view, quiet at night - this is NOT the place for you! The rooms were old and dirty, carpet was gross. Our room faced the main street and this city does not sleep - so the traffic, honking horns and people talking could be heard throughout the night. The front desk staff was not friendly or helpful to us. However - this was just a place to sleep for us! The room was big, plenty of space for everything, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was adequate. As for the staff - if you can handle having to ask for your key and ignore the unpleasant demeanor then it's not that big of a deal. NOW - if you can get past all of this - then you will be happy to know that this hotel was in a GREAT location! And if that is what is most important to you - then this is a great place to stay (especially for the price). It was within walking distance to everywhere - and close to public transportation if you aren't up for walking.
