Historical Traveller Reviews of Amora Hotel Jamison
Perfect for Exploring Sydneyfrom PabloMonkey
For location in Sydney you can do no wrong. This is slap bang in the middle of the city. The Harbour Bridge is 10 minutes walk max, and around the cove to the Opera House is another 5 minutes.
The hotel itself was very nice. The entrance lobby is kept tidy and quite, and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
You have to use your room key/card for the lift, which we had no problems with, but some people seemed to have trouble with this as their cards would not work.
We were on the 29th floor, and although we couldn't see the bridge or opera house, we had a view of harbour and we had no sound from the road below.
The bathroom was great with a large walk in shower and seperat deep bath. The room was complete with tv, hair dryer, iron, drinks (which weren't overly expensive) etc.
There is a food court just down the road (literally 20 paces) which was great for snacks, and there is a 24/7 store and a McDonalds (should you wish) just down the road.
The mattress on the bed was extremly comfy, but I felt the carpet looked a bit grubby. I booked an airport transfer through the hotel and they were there to greet us in a lovely new BMW 7 series which was great to slide into after the long flight.
If we ever go back to Sydney I would definatley stay here again, the location is perfect, and the value for money was also very good.
great location, great hotelfrom katyjoyNewZealand
Perfect for 2 days exploring Sydneyfrom TracyTraveler
Location, location, locationfrom Karen
Staff very attentive and helpful and foyer very grand. Lifts can be busy at check out times though.
Rooms great and a huge queen size bed! Especially liked bathroom with black tiled floor, walk in shower and standalone tub - great for late night dips (for 2).
Pool although petite was good and never very busy although on one occasion jacuzzi did not work and there were no towels available.
All in all though great hotel and would strongly recommend.
Impressive on the outside, ok on the insidefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The minor issues were the housekeeping; basically the person in charge needs to go.. dusty rooms, some mold in the showers, dirty carpets,old towels, etc... We also made a complaint about our A/C, as there were record setting temps in Sydney and while the (young) staff tried to correct them, they could not. Not really a good idea to send a concierge to correct a mechanical issue.
However, the location is ideal, the security tight (you must try to use your keycard to access your room via the elevator.. good luck). I would avoid the restaurant at night, as the food is overpriced and not great.
Fantastic!from A TripAdvisor Member
Great hotel convenient for major sitesfrom LXG03
Staff are very well turned out polite and knowledgeable about city attractions, restaurants etc
Rooms are well appointed and very well maintained, those on the upper floors give you access to the Jamison Club which provides a private breakfast area and evening aperitifs and light bites as part of the rate has some nice views across to the Harbour from the Jamison Club which are unfortunately partially obscured by other larger high rises.
Fantastic location, Helpful staff, Clean quiet roomsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We were in a duluxe room, very large bedroom, great view across the sky line of sydney at night, and a huge bathroom, bath and shower. The room was always cleaned and stocked up with new toiletries, towels. Also an important point was that it was a very quiet room, maybe because we were 14 floors up or perhaps because there was not that many peole in the hotel i don't know but it was lovely to relax in peace and quiet!
If you take away one thing from this review- take this. We had previously read reviews on here and decided that we were not going to take the hotels offer of $33 for breakfast each morning. We spent a lot less on breakfast out of the hotel. There are so many places to choose from:
A)Over looking the Bridge and the Opera House. Around Circular Quay.
B) The undergound shopping centre. (Actually goes under the Rydges Jamison, stretches for something like 3 roads in each direction!) This centre is home to so many cafes, juice bars, fruit and vegatable shops, bakeries the list is endless there are all sorts of breakfasts avaliable. Ok so it doesn't sound appealing but you can always buy your breakfast as a take away and eat it whilst taking in some of the wonderful landmarks in Sydney- ie sitting on the Opera house steps, The botanical gardens. (Or go one better get on the Manly Ferry and have breakfast at one of the cafe's there.)
whatver you do have a good trip!

Top Local Tips for Sydney
24 Hour Restaurant There is a great restaurant in Circular Quay which is open 24 hours called City Extra. The service & food was great! Not expensive either. Beats a McDonalds breakfast any day!!
Cheap Seafood If you want to eat a lot of really delicious seafood at a low price go to the Sydney fish market for lunch. You can get huge platters for 2 people for about 25 AUD. You can also select anything you would like and have it prepared at very reasonable rates.
Getting around in the big city!! If you are staying in the CBD, everything is just a stroll away. Grab a map and head off for a walk! It is next to impossible to get lost and most major attractions are fairly close to each other. Not only this, but public transport is readily available and is reliable and the cheapest way to go. Usually there are tickets you can get that includes transport on all modes of public transport for just one price!! And taxis are way too expensive! The buses and monorail are very handy!!
