It's a nice hotel in the middle of Sydney. Located about 5 minute walk from a bus stop, the hotel is close to China town and Thaina town, Korea town, Japan town, etc. Seven Eleven and many convenience stores are in a short walking distance. The little swimming pool and spa on the 2nd floor are just ideal for my three kids as well. When my 3 year-old girl was angry and went hiding, the hotel staff was VERY helpful. They searched all floors until we found her. They called us to check if we had a good stay, and also gifted chocolate bars to my kids on check-out. I highly recommend Cambridge Hotel for your visit to Sydney.

We are happy you appreciated our service and the personalised chocolate upon check out. We value you feedback and look forward in welcoming you again in the near future. Warm regards,
Great Value For Money”
Cambridge is great value for money considering Sydney hotels are really expensive.Cambridge is really cheap when on sale. Check in and check out was really fast. In room service is also reasonably priced. We got a balcony room and could see Sydney Opera House. Room wasn't huge (very good size compared to others witht the same price) but was very clean and comfortable. My only complaint is TV. They placed it very low (same height as our bed) We will definitely go back there.
Value for money!”
Great location! Near to train station and easy access to bus stop, chemist warehouse, markets. Big spacious room! Very clean! Definitely will stay here again if we are coming to Sydney. Special thanks to Anastasia (pardon if my spelling is incorrect) she made our stay wonderful. Thank you again Cambridge Hotel. Highly recommended! ☺️

Lovely hotel, friendly service, great location.”
hotel room was spacious, clean and confortable. location was excellent, convenient to oxford street, haymarket but also a reasonably walk to hordern pavillion and moore park. overall, well worth the price. staff were friendly and helpful and knowledgable of the surrounding area. undercover parking was available for an extra charge. room could occasionally be a little noisy with traffic noise even through we were on the 6th floor, although overall it was a very pleasant stay at the cambridge hotel.
Great location on a budget”
The location was perfect as we were in Sydney for a day at the Sydney Cricket Ground and a night at a show in Oxford Street. The twin single room was clean and modern and ideal for a quick overnight stay but a little small if you intended spending more time in the room. Great standard of facilities at a very reasonable price (for Friday night in Sydney). Only downside was, like most hotels in Sydney, WIFI was an extra charge. Don't understand how hotels in small country towns can supply free internet but most hotels in Sydney put excessive fees on internet access.
excellent stay with good value”
Nothing much to say. I enjoy much for my 6 nights stay at Cambridge Hotel Sydney. The location is perfect very near to main street Oxford St, lots of entertainment club and resto. At my check out they give me chocolate as appreciation, it taste just like my stay here: sweet!

Excellent service, great room, best value around”
Our one night stay was very enjoyable. We chose the hotel because of its location (we needed to be in Surry Hills) and price. It turned out that the Cambridge was the lowest priced 4 star hotel around. Check-in staff were helpful with a special requirement (extra parking time). The 12th floor Queen Premium room was well-appointed and had big window with a broad suburban view. Despite the hotel's proximity to a (Saturday night) Oxford Street, the room was quiet. Venturing out into the Oxford Street buzz for dinner was great, too. The only down side - many of the basement car park spaces are squeezed between closely spaced pillars. Nerves of steel can be required!
Heart of Sydney”
I stay at the Cambridge whenever passing through Sydney and it is always the best price and most convenient. This place is a gem...a diamond in the rough. For those that want some nightlife..it is close by. Restaurants just down the street and a pub 100m away. It doesnt get any better. Stay on floors 1 to 3 and the elevator goes direct to the car park. They always have parking available...it is a bit small so be careful turning the corners in the car park!
Hotel staff were very nice and prompt when it comes to our needs. The room was clean and very comfortable. I will surely consider staying again in Cambridge Hotel next time I get the chance to visit Sydney. Thank you.

Satisfied despite minor issues”
Staff were very friendly. Had an issue with water pressure in the room as well as hot water not coming through. Staff were quick for solutions which was great. I did find it a little pointless to complain due to it being an overnight stay. Other than being interrupted an hour before my check-out time by maintenance arriving to see the damage I have nothing but good thoughts about the experience. Thanks Cambridge Hotel Sydney!
Hi Elliot, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us about your recent stay. It is disappointing to know your stay was slightly dampened by an issue with the hot water and I apologise for this, however, I am pleased this issue was resolved. We appreciate all feedback from all guests whether it be just an overnight stay it helps us improve and develop our accommodation. It's wonderful to know you have good thoughts only about your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards,
Great Hotel at a Reasonable Price”
We went back to Cambridge again after a few weeks. We booked a queen balcony. The bed wasn't really a queen bed but double. However, the room is very spacious facing the front of the hotel. We had another comfortable stay at a very reasonable price. I'd say 'cheap' actually. It is very hard to find a hotel in Sydney with a balcony and a decent room at this price. Thanks Agoda for running specials all the time. We already booked our third stay for next week and treat ourselves by booking a delux.
The quality Cambridge hotel is nicely located near the heart of Sydney. It has very helpful friendly staff. It is in a little bit of noisy neighborhood but was nice and quite with the balcony door closed. Would certainly stay there again.
City hotel without the bustle”
Hotel was just 300 meters to Sydney Central station. If walking up/down hills (its in Surry Hills) doesnt suit you, there are 2 bus stops nearby just 50 meters away. This is actually 3 hotels in a building: Cambridge, Adge apartments and another one whose name i forgot that can give you a wide selection of rooms to fit your needs. It's located beside the Surry Hills police station -- how much safer can you be?
Quality Cambridge Hotel Sydney”
I was very impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at the hotel. Always willing to help with directions and advice. The Hotel Cambridge is very close to the city and public transport. It was a 10 minute walk to the centre of town and 15 minutes walk to Darling Harbour. the bus stop was a 2 minute walk so you can be at the beaches in 15 mins and circular quay in 5 mins. A fantastic variety of restaurants and cafes can be found in Oxford and Crown streets. And great shopping in Oxford and Crown streets as well; boutiques, galleries and vintage clothing etc. etc. I would definitely stay here again. Comfort and convenience without the high price tag.
Nice Stay no complaints - was up to expectations”
Overall a pleasant stay, and reasonably well located (it took me about 25 minutes to walk to the opera House) my comments on the car parking and internet access are not really criticisms but simply points worth knowing before you travel (especially if you are thinking of parking that big four wheel drive there!).I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Cambridge again if I am fortunate enough to get to Sydney again. I cant comments on the food/bar or pool as I did not use these facilities during my stay.
My stay was fantastic, always enjoyed their simple and great location room near Oxford St, parking can be a stretch cause its first in first serve, price was great for the room I got which was spacious and clean. Without a doubt I would go back to The Cambridge Hotel as they were great with service, the room and help with my stay.
Friendly staff and great location ”
I cannot tell you how helpful the staff at this hotel were - great at giving directions by foot, bus or train information accurate and super pleasant with it. Our room ( 1405) was spacious and clean. The pool area was clean and more than acceptable for an indoor pool. Towels available at reception. Checked out and was given a personalised bar of chocolate which was a lovely touch to our great 7 night stay at Cambridge Hotel x
Dear Sara, Thank you for the amazing review. We are extremely happy to know that our dedicated and hardworking frontline staff provided exceptional service throughout your stay. We are glad that you were satisfied with our comfortable rooms and indoor pool. We are delighted that you appreciated our small farewell gesture at the time of your check out and our overall efforts during your stay. We hope you stay with us in the future as well. Warm regards.
Very nice and quiet place. ”
The hotel tuck in a very quiet place. About 5 minutes walk are all the restaurants, bar and pub. Staff are very polite and handle our check in very well. Understanding of the surrounding area also was good. Thumbs up for that. It was to our surprise as well, when we received a chocolate with my name printed on it upon check out. Thanks Cambridge Hotel. You have made our stay memorable and we will definitely come back in near future.
Hi Leong, Thank you for sharing your brilliant feedback with us. It is pleasing to know you had a memorable stay with us appreciating the level of service you received especially the personalised ‘Thank You’ chocolate on check out. I am pleased you appreciated our location; quiet and close to a variety of restaurants, bars and pubs. Our friendly team look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind Regards,
No frills but good price and location.”
I've stayed here a few times now on weekends away with friends when we visit Sydney for concerts or events. I've found it often has enticing discounts if you know ahead of time that you'll be in Sydney and can book at least a few weeks out from your stay through sites like Agoda. The location is appealing and I've found at night it's a little quieter than some inner-CBD hotels. Surry Hills is a nice 10 minute walk from George St which is the 'main strip' of the CBD and also close enough to other interesting night spots like Darlinghurst and Kings Cross that you could walk on a nice night or just a very cheap taxi ride. I have only stayed in budget rooms on the lower floors. These are clean, no-frills places to get a good nights sleep. The elevator is possibly the slowest I've ever been in, and both occasions trying to check out right on the 10:30am deadline resulted in waiting in quite a long queue in the foyer. Underground parking for guests is a reasonable $20 a night if you validate at the front desk when you check out which I think is better than many other Sydney hotels. All in all though, good value for money.
