Exceptional”

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.

Dear Soleak, Thank you for choosing to stay with us at Cambridge Hotel Sydney.

Great Value For Money”

Price, Cleanliness

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.

Great location on a budget”

location, clean modern room, good staff

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 service, great room, best value around”

Friendly, efficient and helpful service. Good room and amenities.

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!

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!

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!

Great Hotel at a Reasonable Price”

Price, Room

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.

Relaxing neighborhood, adequately-sized rooms, multiple room selections to suit your needs

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?

there really wasn't anything i dislike about the hotel.

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”

Nice sized room, and bathroom both bigger than the average for this class of hotel. Up on the 11th floor i was not aware of any noise from any nearby bars and so on. Staff were helpful and friendly
If you are going to use the hotel's car park (additional charge made for this) be aware its under the hotel and on several levels with quite tight turns and is not suited for large cars (small/medium are best) both because of the tight turns and that there are more parking spaces for these types of vechile. I had wired internet access which was fast enough for email and web browsing and using VOIP functions such as skype and google talk but not much good for online games - Speed tests came out at an upload speed of a max of 300 kbps

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.

No frills but good price and location.”

Clean, modern and well located.

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.
