More about The Grace Hotel

More about The Grace Hotel

The Grace Hotel’s close proximity to all the major tourist attractions in Sydney combined with attentive staff and fair rates make this a top choice. The Heritage-listed 1930s building’s neo-gothic exterior is wonderfully complemented by the Art Deco interior design for all of the guestrooms as well as common areas. Located just a short walk from the popular Chinese Garden of Friendship, The Royal Botanic Gardens, the Captain Cook Cruises, as well as a superfluous quantity of world-class dining options makes this location second-to-none when choosing a comfortable and convenient place to rest your head while touring through Sydney.

Great hotel in the heart of Sydney”

Cloes to key City attractions; top rate service with a smile.

we ended up staying at the grace hotel following agoda's price promotion and are fully satisfied with the result. it's got plenty of health / relaxation facilities - pool, spa, sauna, gym in a nice relaxed environment. and is located in the heart of sydney, within walking distance of darling harbour, chinatown and probably the harbour bridge / the rocks areas. the rooms are spacious and comfortable - they feel like rooms (rather than the standard hotel cubicle that passes for one these days) with comfortable and modern fittings. we were particularly impressed by the staff who were very accomodating and attentive, be it taxi bookings or help with information and directions to nearby attractions. the only minus was the compulsory valet parking (due to lack of space in the city centre) with its steep price, although this is not expensive compared with parking elsewhere in sydney

A stylish 1920s building now a modern hotel”

Mixing the buillding's past with contemporary traveller needs; brilliant location; attentive staff.

It's not often you stay in a hotel in your own home town. The Grace was a delight, retaining many of the art deco architectural prompts of its 1920s origins as it was transformed into a quality hotel. The breakfasts are generous (get the pre-paid voucher from the front desk for a big discount). The location makes good shopping, public transport and major tourist attractions (Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and The Rocks) only minutes walk away. We even did the touristy thing of a Sydney Ferries (public transport) ride to Watsons Bay and back - a few dollars for a closeup look at one of the world's great waterways (and some big bucks real estate!). Only one negative: I detest hotels' attempts at high charges for internet access. $25 a day for wired (WIRED!!) access at The Grace isn't acceptable. The funny blue cable was a blast from the past. Many hotels provide wireless as a free service, or there's always a nearby coffee shop.

World Class Hotel”

Great Services, Great Location, Spacious and Clean Room

Basically i checked in Grace Hotel at their promotional rate and thought that it might be a disappointment as it is really a good catch. Surprisingly, everything turn out just not what i expected. The location of Grace Hotel was right at the heart of Sydney City, walking distances away from Sydney Aquarium, Daring Harbour and Chinatown. There is a 7-eleven right next to the building and you can be able to grab anything in the middle of the night. I would also like to extend my appreciation to the staff in Grace Hotel for returning my phone that i leftover. They DHL express my phone my phone back to Singapore!! Overall, it a great hotel to stay in. I enjoyed my experiences here!

Lovely hotel and services with a smile”

Hotel is fantastic, the room is clean and quiet.

As this is our first time at Sydney, we're glad to choose the Grace Hotel for our accommodation. As the staff are very helpfull and nice to our kids. The hotel's location is near to the Sydney attractions and shopping mall and can be reached in walking distance. We stay at he hotel for 6 days. And one day it happen that I left my iPhone being charged in the room while I was on my way to visit the Blue Mountain, so I just called the hotel asking for their help to un-plug it and keep it until I came back. And at night when I came back to the room my iPhone was perfectly laid on the table. ;o) I thanked to the hotel staff for the excellent services.

Very happy at The Grace”

Lovely old building, very classy and very efficient service

We were in Sydney for a family wedding - we had family staying all over Sydney so staying in the cbd suited us. The Grace Hotel looked great on the Agoda website and we booked purely from previous reviews - I'm really happy as everyone is spot on, great location, great staff, lovely rooms - we had the most comfortable king size bed! If I could nitpick the tiniest thing - we asked front desk staff about local restaurants and cafes and they couldn't help with any suggestions as they didn't know Sydney, but the staff were very friendly and efficient. We would be happy to stay at The Grace Hotel again in the future.

Great location and great service”

Staff was excellent, concierge service one of the best that we have experienced.

the grace is a classy old style hotel that is very well maintained. we were greeted warmly at the door and by the the front desk staff. our room was very nice and inviting. the bath tub was extra large in size. the lifts were some of the fastests that we have ever been on in a hotel. the location of the hotel is centrally located to the area attractions and shopping. we must speak highly of troy and the concierge services in helping with planning day trips and giving advice about local attractions. probably the only negative would be having to pay for internet that streamed rather slowly. ...but without a doubt, if we would stay in sydney again we would book at the grace.

We stayed overnight at the Grace for a wedding, after many years of thinking about staying there and using it as a base for rediscovering Sydney. After finding the agoda price for a room we couldn't wait to spend a weekend at a classy hotel (all dressed up in our fancy black tie clothes - felt very special). We were not disappointed by the high standard of service and friendly staff, although the weather limited our expeditions into the CBD. Overall a great experience that we look forward to repeating soon!

This is our second trip to Sydney and have stayed in the Grace both times. It is hard to beat the CBD location as it is centrally located to so many things. Darling Harbor, Queen Victoria Building, and multiple shops and restaurants are in easy walking distance. They are remodeling the rooms which was very nice.

I recently returned to stay at one of my favourite Sydney hotels. The Grace is just that, gracious, welcoming and comfortable with a touch of class. For Art Deco devotees its a must. I requested a room with a bath and enjoyed a luxurious soak in the large well appointed bathroom.

Definitely a good hotel! Worth the stay.”

Location, Rooms and Price.

I had an amazing stay. I needed a night away from my friends so I decided to look for a hotel in Sydney CBD. I was surpised to find Grace Hotel to be so central and affordable, and best yet, the rooms are close to 5 Star standard and cleanliness. Was pleasantly surprised that it is Malaysian owned, by the Federal Hotel Group. More so I am pleased. But the in room dining MUST BE IMPROVED! I ordered the Malaysian Curry Laksa for AUD 15 only to find it is made from Maggi Curry Noodles with some Chicken, Veg and Half a boiled Egg. Come on...Aussies know their Curry Laksa ok...this is certainly NOT IT, what more a Malaysian like me??? Buckle up boys. Make Malaysia proud.
