Historical Traveller Reviews of Comfort Inn Cambridge Hotel
adequate accommodationfrom SBArules
The rooms are dark and old. They were clean. There was a kitchen counter type thing with a sink along one wall and when I went to wash out a few things in it, the faucet came off.
There was an electric kettle but the cups were so filthy I had to wash them before I could use them.
There was a safe in the room, which I used, fortunately. As when I left to go somewhere - I came back 1/2 hour later to pick up one more thing and found my door to the room wide open with no one around. NO ONE. My laptop was sitting there, my suitcase, etc. I locked up and complained at the front desk but no one seemed too concerned but me. They said they would look into it and get back to me (never did) but that it was probably the maid and she'd gone to get something. I asked if they always leave the doors open when they go to get something.... I didn't like that at ALL.
The location - in the "pink" area as one woman discribed, was great for me. I prefer, as a woman traveling alone, to be in a more gay part of the city. I feel safer where as she obviously has a bit of homophobia.
There isn't a train station real close but I don't mind walking. There is internet access in the lobby. Room service or a bar and restaurant downstairs and down the road (very close to oxford st), markets nearby, laundry nearby - actually not a bad location.
Hope this helps. Not a bad place, just don't expect much more than a 2-3 star place. And there is NO gym.
Good value location not greatfrom threespires
Maybe because it was Thursday to Sunday that the rate was very good
Location not great either walked or got a taxi although central station not far away
Breakfast quite Good
Cleanliness & Staff no problems
Clean - Friendly - Great Location - Value For Moneyfrom JoannaW
The hotel has done a fabulous job by upgrading the facilities and rooms, all contemporary feel. I found the rooms very clean and comfortable and great value for money. If you wish to get a quick snack - the rooms service menu is there for you and if you just like to get some snack for the room - a great supermarket is just a minute away. So is the gym, and much more.
Everyone was so friendly and happy. I met many other travellers and visitors to Sydney staying at the hotel who also shared the many laughs and good comments about their stay.
I would recommend the hotel to other travellers for sure and since I have stayed at the hotel in the past I must say - they are putting alot of effort into making it even a better hotel for the guests.
Brilliant, Close to all attractionsfrom EnglandHighflyer
we booked our stay through M-Power booking agents, and found the hotel more than satisfactory. They were just finishing re-furbishing, but this did not affect our stay in any way.
Our room had a balcony (they dont all, so if you want one specify when you book), t.v., fridge (very handy ).safe(2dollars a day), mini bar (with price list), tea & coffee making facilities, hair dryer & iron. Everything you would want really.
The room was cleaned every day,and clean towels provided. the reception staff were very helpfull with diections, and provided us with a map of the city.
The hotel is positioned just off Oxford st. near Hyde park. Riley st. is a residential street, so nice and quiet at night. About a 20 min walk to circular Quay, and 15 mins walk to central station. If you dont want to walk, bus stops are close by. A number 380 will take you to Bondi beach!!
Ther is an "Irish" pub just up the road that serves good steaks, among other things. Good sevice.
We didnt sample the Dinners in the hotel restarant, but the breakfasts were very good, as much as you could eat (help yourself) for 12 dollars (£5). cooked / cereals / fruit / continental. enough to really set you up for the day.
We booked about 9 months in advance, and found that we saved about 50% on the nightly rate. we paid 130 dollars (about £50 per night),
We really enjoyed our stay in Sydney, the people were friendly and helpfull (especially the bus drivers). oodles of places to eat, and at very reasonable prices. The local beer is Tooheys, recomended by the locals!
Be sure to go up the Oz Tower, it really is worth it, the view is wonderfull. Also, we found that the ocean beach (not the harbour beach) in Manly was far supperior to Bondi, as it was shaded by trees near the promenade.
Where ever you stay in Sydney, I hope you enjoy the experience, we did,

Dangerous, dirty, awful place!from nutgrove
Good for the Budget Travelerfrom debsimmonds
Our room was of decent size , however, it was a little dark and damp feeling with high windows(from the floor) that looked into another building. But, it was clean, quiet and proved a good place to crash after a full day of sightseeing. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable -- I think the best we experienced in our 8 weeks of travel. We enjoyed the extra couches in the room for reading our tour books and maps. Yes, the elevators were a pain, as stated by other travelers, -- small, slow and unpredictable. It took us 15 minutes to get from the 4th floor to the lobby to check out with our luggage. But, overall, for the price and the close proximity to the center of the city, this is definitely a good budget option for travelers.
I would stay there again.
Coffee at Gloria Jeans is a must!
I recommend great Thai food at Wagamama one block off Oxford on Crown Street, just a couple blocks up from the Cambridge.
Happy with the Cambridge Quality Hotelfrom Queensland456
The hotel is situated in a quiet street off the busy thoroughfare of Oxford Street. We had no problems with the lift as some of the other reviews mention, but the hotel is installing brand new lifts as the final stage of their refurbishment. The only annoying thing was the bar closed at 9.50pm on Sunday evening!
I would recommend this hotel for anyone who doesn't want to pay top dollar for a hotel and doesn't mind being a little out of the main city. It's not the sort of hotel that you would spend alot of time in as there are not many facilities, but if you just want a base in which to explore Sydney then it's fine. I would definitely stay here again.
Excellent presentationfrom Miss_Funky
Hmmmmm.... could have picked better.from docdanz
The room was spacious and had a view (we were on the 10th floor).
The worst thing was the malfuntioning lifts. Both of them! They were tiny, would take you to the wrong floor or stop at floors of which the buttons had not been pushed. The worst thing is sometimes it would just "reset" returning to the ground floor (or sometimes the basement!) just before you were about to arrive at your destination (especially bad for someone on the 10th floor. It usually took us several goes to get back to our rooms and we ended up always using the stairs to get back down.
The pool was not great being almost enclosed by oppressive apartment style rooms (not sunny and open as suggested by the photos).
What was more there was a large tour (high school students) group from the United States staying at the hotel. With the amount of luggage they had, you would think that they were moving to Australia. Needless to say that this combined with tiny malfunctioning lifts meant an arduous exercise getting back to our room each day (10 minutes plus at times from the front desk!)
On the positive side, the service was reasonable and friendly and it was very cheap (less than $100Aus per night).
I think we'll try something else next time.
