About this property


A nicely done boutique establishment with recently renovated rooms and common areas, this hotel also provides superior access to the city. Considered by many to be a great value in an otherwise expensive city, the Best Western Plus Hotel Stellar provides simple luxury and larger than expected rooms and baths. Only a five-minute walk from the nearest subway station, the city is literally at guest's fingertips. Hyde Park and Circular Quay are in the immediate vicinity as are a plethora of museums and a myriad of dining and shopping options. Something a bit out of the ordinary, the quaint feel of the 38 rooms has a decorative feeling quite different from an ordinary hotel. For guests who desire a great location without emptying their wallets, this may be the correct establishment.

Overall rating is good, however...
Convenient location, clean room, staff was nice and very responsive. However,... - not providing bath room slippers unless you ask for - two body creams were provided but no shampoo (may be the housekeeping staff should pay more attention on this) -hot water in shower runs slowly and it runs out shortly, not enough for your whole bathing. Also you need to wait for 10-15 mins (as told by the housekeeping staff) for the shower to turn hot, but it eventually not getting hot enough and we need to have a quick (very quick) bath. It was frustrating. - poor lighting in room is quit problematic Friendly reminder to the coming guests, air-con/ electricity supplies will be cut-off in the mid-night. Be prepared for this Econ friendly policy of this hotel. Generally speaking, I won't mind recommending this hotel to traveler, yet the hotel manger should make improvements on the above-mentioned area.

Good location, facilities and services
I have a stay of 6 nights at the hotel with my family, highly satisfactory. The hotel room was spacious with three windows, one of them facing the Hyde Park and even the St Mary Cathedral. Inside the room, there is a small partition wall to separate the entry areas and the living room that allow the entry area becoming a small cloak room for the bags and shoes. I appreciated the design. The hotel have two coin-operated clothes washing machines that add much conveniences to my journey. The room is quite and the bed was comfortable for sleeping. The neighbouring Oxford street has lots of restaurants choice as well as supermarkets. The small cafe at the hotel G/F is very good and its It is my first time to Sydney. The staff offered useful advice on my visiting plan and the check-out is simple and efficient. The hotel is within minutes walks to the Australian Museum, Hyde Park, Arts Museum, Art Gallery of New South Wales, St. Mary Cathedral, and Hyde Park. I visited Blue Mountains during the stay, and happy to note that it was only around 15 minutes walk to the Central Station to take the train. I visited most of the scenic attractions on foot. As I remembered, it took less than 20 minutes to China Town, and around 40 minutes' walk to the Darling Harbour and Circular Bay.
