Great location, clean hotel, very personal service
Great location, affordable, so clean
I had hesitations in booking at this hotel when i read the reviews that the rooms are very small, but decided to go for this hotel because of its great location.
To our surprise, the hotel room wasn't that small at all. It was just the right size. Not very spaceous but, there is enough space for all of your luggages and enough space to walk around the room.
the room was so clean, bathroom looks very new. the glass doors of the bathroom looks so new, without watermarks. The sheets were clean and fresh. Everything was nice. And for the price we paid, it was way more than worth the stay.
There were 2 computers near the lobby which you can use for internet for free!
Alot of restaurants nearby. and we were just on time for the food festival which was a walking distance to the hotel.
Commuting was easy as well.
Front desk personell were very nice and willing to help. Always smiling.
All in all, our stay was short, but memorable and nice.

Great Location and excellent service!
Good location and comfortable bed.
The location of this hotel is great. Surrounded by good cafes, supermarket, clubs, train station, taxi stand, bus stop. It can be very noisy along the streets especially on Fri and Sat. The room and toilet are cleaned daily without fail. Free use of internet station, ice water, mircowave at the lobby. Very good service provided by the reception especially by Mr Martin. Will definately return to this hotel when i visit Sydney!

Great location, very close to attractions!
stayed at the bayswater of the 2012 nrl grand final weekend. very close to kings cross station but away from the seedy strip of the golden mile. great hotel. we stayed on the fourth floor and had no problems with noise, unlike other reviews we had seen on agoda. the lift was slow but fine and not nearly as annoying as what others had written before. the room was very comfortable with fine furnishings, great king size bed, foxtel, and the bathroom was fine. not much room to store things but you can use the cupboards that are provided. the hotel was made up every day and kept very clean. the only disappointing thing was that we asked to have a check out at 11.30am to coincide with our flights (check out is 10am and check in 2pm - on the day we arrived we checked in at 9pm)we were told we could but that it would cost us - this was fairly unreasonable especially considering the hotel was not busy at all and 90 minutes would not really effected anyone.
the hotel is about a 15 minute walk to town and to the beautiful attractions such as the sydney harbour bridge/opera house/cirrcular quay - definitely recommend a ferry trip to watsons bay. all in all the bayswater was a great place to stay and we would stay there again.
The free tour - near The rocks - 6pm every night. The girl that runs it is fantastic and talks about the history of Sydney.

Decent but not amazing
Right at the Kings Cross area
Hotel is decent and quite clean, however rooms called Executive King Suite, is way too tiny to be called that, barely room to move around bed and had to keep suitcase on the couch.
Bed so close to the bathroom that you sleep with your head almost in the shower.
But that is all specific to the architecture and not clear policy about how rooms are named, what size they really are or lack of floor plans...
On the bright side - staff is very welcoming and helpful. Bed was good and overall hotell feel is clean and decent. Parking for the car is a small distance away but rate is reduced for hotel clients.
excellent sushi @ sake!

Very dark room but friendly staff
The rooms are very dark and i asked for another room, even they've upgraded me but the room is still very dark, and it smells like dead mice.
Bars all nearby, not recommended for families!

Nice hotel but small rooms
Laundry room, staff, internet room and shuttle bus to the airport
We hace really enjoyed our time at this hoel in sydney, we were upgrated to a queen size room and still being so small, i think the bathroom and room is quiet narrow for stay many days there.
The best things are the staff and the hotel facilities.

Great location but small rooms
Great bed and linens, nice shower
If you want to stay in the Kings Cross area, this is a decent hotel. I did not like however that the hotel said it had an airport shuttle service included but really, they phone and 3rd party shuttle service and make you pay for it. There is no room for toiletries in the bathroom and the room was very small.
The room was clean, staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel is close to the Kings Cross subway which will get you to the places you want to visit downtown.

Lovely hotel but small room
Gd location, about 5 mins walk to King Cross Station
Gd location with superb guest services but the rooms are quite small.
Hotel Feature Tip:
Try not to get rooms on L5 as you need to carry your luggage from L4 stairs to L5. There is only 1 elevator which is very small and slow. Can occupy abt 4 pax with luggage and takes quite some time for the lift to move.

Poor location but very clean rooms
Two restaurants next door are very high foods and services.
The Bayswater Sydney Hotel located in Bayswater street, in the red district. First time we came in, it was very surprising. The staffs was very friendly and helpful. Very clean room I have never been seen before. But the first night and the other night we was staying there, I can sleep well cause of the sound from the other level. We was staying in level 2, sound was coming from level 3. But breakfast in Ultimo and dinner in Pizzaria next door from the hotel is very tasty and good friendly services. My daughter was asking breakfasts and dinners to this cafe and restaurant.
For gentleman who are interesting in night life this location is very good area and hotel to research.

clean rooms, helpful & accommodating staff
having a shuttle service going to the airport is a plus! just make sure you book before 7pm.
it was challenging having a 23kg bag up the entrance stairs (about 10 steps I think), and the room I was assigned had 2 steps up also which was at the end of the corridor. Lift was very slow.
But, if you don't have a heavy bag to pull and not in a hurry to get out of the lift, the place is very very nice! Clean room I was in, and stylish too. Small maybe, but can't be bothered with space, as long as its comfortable. And the staff, HELPFUL, cheerful, accommodating. It was one very nice stay I've had, and definitely will come back again, even with a heavy bag still! :P
Hotel Feature Tip:
Book your shuttle going to the airport before 7pm.
