        One night stay”
        Booked as an impromptu stopover on our way back from the Phillipines. Great location for Darling Harbour and Chinatown. Great facilities, the only real downside was the shelf in the shower, you had to be very careful not to catch yourself quite badly and watch the tiny step in and out of the bathroom.. you barely notice it until you stub your toe. Comfy bed, very clean and great staff. Would recommend and stay again.

        This is my first time going to Sydney and I am glad that I picked The Ultimo as my stay because it is one of the highlight of my trip. Location is very very good. There are many attractions and food options within walking distance. Central station is only minutes away. Room is super clean and the decoration in room is simple and neat. We love the high celiing and space of the room. Besides, ALL the staff at front desk are very helpful and friendly. We have talked to different people and made some special request. All of them are providing impressive service. We are totally happy that we made the right choice in staying with The Ultimo and I can't wait to have a friend going to Sydney soon so that I can recommend them to The Ultimo.

        Great location right next to CBD. The room is very clean and tidy too. And great friendly staff. but it's a bit pricy for the very small room. It's also a bit noisy especially if you're arranged the lower floor room. Sound proof is not ideal - I can easily hear noises at the hall way / next room.

        We've stayed at the Ultimo a few times now when we've come to Sydney to go see a show at the Capitol Theatre. It's location is ideal for this as being only a short walk to the theatre, straight across the road from Paddy's Markets & a short 1 block walk to China Town. The staff are always friendly & helpful, the rooms are clean & tidy & comfortable.

        Small quirky room with good location ”
        The room was quite small with only a single bed and the TV was in a separate alcove such that I could enjoy the usual news feed in bed in the morning. The step between bed room and 'living space' is unexpected and also one to watch out for in the middle of the night whilst still half asleep. However the room was clean and more than adequate for a solo traveller. The location was great for sightseeing if you don't mind a short walk and the local food amazing. Considering the location the room was not noisy at night. The staff were also very friendly and happy to help.

        Excellent Hotel and Venue - Highly Recommended”
        This hotel is excellent with very comfortable beds, clean and quiet environment - my family including 2 kids love it. Its location is also strategic and convenient, that we can walk to China town and Darling Harbour, or even to/from Town Hall train station to/from Opera House area (Circular Quay). Lots of food variety around this hotel, including Market City which is just situated opposite of it. The only inconvenience that I dislike is the hotel free wifi, that requires your social media account (facebook or Instagram) to login, or it kept on requiring me to repeatedly input personal info (if no social media account was used) in order to get the wifi access each time. Overall, this hotel is an excellent choice, highly recommended.

        There was a special which made it really good value for money. Located behind paddys market makes it easily accessible to all the city and to central trim station. It can be a little bit noisy but nothing out of this world. Staff are really nice and they use a star sign concept which I found pretty unique. Everyone was very helpful and nice and facility was very clean and nice!

        Found the bed to be very comfortable, and the room very clean and fresh. the hotel was central to everywhere I wanted to go. The only slight downfall (not the fault of the hotel) is that being from the country, I found the traffic noise from outside very loud. That being said, I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

        Kinks to be worked out but great service”
        The bad: The hotel was recently renovated so some things did not function properly. The lift was still not working.The very first room we were assigned had a broken painting left on the floor, which wasn't a good first impression as it looked like careless room keeping. We requested to be shifted to another room. But after shifting and settling down there was no hot water at all on the first night and the staff arranged for us to go to another room to use the shower, which was troublesome. The neutral: On our last morning, the fire alarm in the hotel went off and concerned guests like us evacuated the building. It turned out to be a false alarm however. The good: What the hotel lacked in facilities, it made up for with good and friendly service staff. This made the stay pleasant despite the initial hiccups. It does look like things at the hotel will improve once these details get sorted out. The hotel is also very conveniently located near Chinatown.

        Room 234 - miserable size. Non-existent WiFi. Had to go shopping malls for free WiFi. No luggage rack, no closet, very soft mattress, very thin walls. There is a lift but you have to lug your luggage 4 steps and walk to end of corridor to get to Room 234. There are 2 round stools which we used as luggage rack and a small round table 12 inch diameter. Hairdryer, iron, coffee/tea provided.
