Lovely stay
We were very happy with the location of the hotel, we had little noise from the street and it was in walking distance of most nice suburbs, as well as public transport. The room's furniture might need a little updating and the bathroom's grout was going black which looks nasty. But all in all the room felt clean otherwise, the staff was all incredibly nice and helpful and we loved staying at the Vulcan :)

was not expecting too much but turns out surprisingly good
i was there for a short night, booked a standard room but they upgraded it to superior for free. thought we were lucky. room was super clean. it has a book shelf loaded with few good reads. however my room was right next to the lift so sometimes it was quite noisy. the reception lady was nice and helpful. overall i'd recommend this hotel as a good place to stay in Sydney.
