Profile: Sydney Central Business District

No visit to Sydney CBD, in the vibrant heart of the downtown area, would be complete without stopping off to explore one of its several parks. At Hyde Park, you can visit the stunning Archibald fountain and the ANZAC War Memorial, while the Royal Botanic Gardens features an oasis of landscaped gardens and colorful wildlife.

This neighborhood boasts an assortment of soaring skyscrapers such as Sydney Tower, as well as some of Australia’s oldest buildings. Heritage-listed buildings include the historic St Andrew’s Cathedral, built in Gothic Revival style, as well as nearby Sydney Town Hall and the Queen Victoria Building.

  • 8.0.Very good

    It’s an older style property. It can get noisy of an evening. The room light switches drove us crazy otherwise all good. The staff are extremely friendly polite and attentive.

    A beautiful, heritage building but has hardwood floors, so can be loud. The air-conditioning in my room broke, but I was offered another room very quickly.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Cool, trendy ... but OHH that bed !

    Really trendy and cool hotel , everything is dim light and gives off an enhanced shadow look. Was a little hard to get ready in the morning though as all the lights have warm tones . Excellent help from the concierge but the worst bed I have ever slept on - at one point my partner had to get up and sleep on the lounge ! Not sure if we just got unlucky with an older bed , but would not recommend for anyone with back issues !
