Absolutely Fantasticfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great hotel, great locationfrom victoriacar
The hotel is in a great location - walking distance to the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Circular Quay, shops, pubs, restaurants...
We had excellent service from the hotel. On our last night there, my husband (then boyfriend) proposed to me - the concierge helped him arrange the evening (opera, dinner, drinks, etc).
We had room service twice at middle-of-the-night hours - food was good, service was prompt and friendly.
The hotel also upgraded us to a water view room, which was nice.
The bathroom was great - bright, clean lines, with a really cool toilet with a super flush! It was like the toilet flush on an airplane :)
I would stay there again and I would definitely recommend it to other travelers to Sydney.
Great location, shame about the foodfrom JoeAtiyah
Modern, Spacious Hotel Under the Sydney Harbor Bridgefrom rschmi1
Staff was friendly and helpful. The best hotel we stayed in during our recent trip (early April, 2005) to Australia.
Quality slipping since last stay in 2003from KyGirl-Faye
I really like the fresh flowers on every floor. It is a nice touch. Overall, we love the hotel and would stay there again. The staff is friendly, the concierges were very helpful and above all, it's clean and quiet.

The extra £10 it costs to upgrade to a Water View room is worth every penny, although some may be disappointed that this only guarantees a view of Walsh Bay and not the Opera House/Harbour itself.
The location is both quirky - directly under the Harbour Bridge and excellent - on the edge of the Rocks district and an easy stroll to Circular Quay and CBD.
The room was very well appointed, tasteful and modern, but making features such as beams that harked back to its past use as a warehouse. The bathroom was a good size, there was good wardrobe space and everything was clean and kept well up together by the maids. The mini bar was also very reasonable! Whilst we didn't bother with breakfast (too busy!) it did look like a pretty spectacular buffet spread.
The hotel bar was never particularly busy, but it was lovely to sit outside on the water for a nightcap without the hordes of people traipsing past that you get around the Rocks or on the Opera House Concourse. Prices also compared extremely well with such venues.
The staff were young and friendly, nothing was too much trouble.
I can't recommend this hotel highly enough, and can't wait to go back!!
Good location but some problemsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Negatives: the room was tiny with no storage space, so we had to live out of our suitcases, which made the room seem even more cramped. Although the room was supposed to have a water view, the window was small, and there was a large metal beam across it that obstructed most of the view anyway. (The room was on the third floor -- the view from the second floor should be better.) And the view itself was really just the warehouse apartments opposite the Sebel, not Walsh Bay as advertised.
Service was also problematic. The staff just seemed very inexperienced to me, and there didn't seem to be anyone in charge. For example, our room wasn't ready until 3:30 despite a guaranteed check-in time of 2 PM -- hardly what we needed after a 14-hour flight from LA. The staff explained that the hotel had been really busy the night before and that they were having trouble cleaning the rooms in time, but plainly they just didn't have the experience to handle the situation -- it was chaos.
I expect the Park Hyatt round the corner is a lot more expensive, but it would be worth looking into as an alternative to the Sebel.
First Class...from A TripAdvisor Member
We were lucky enough to stay at the hotel for the New Years Eve celebrations this year and you couldn't be in a better place for views of the bridge and the fireworks. The hotel put on a fantastic gala dinner for the night which was great. The food is very good all day as well as the staff with the personal little touches that you don't get in many big hotels. A very happy holiday maker in deed.
Good choice for a weekend, but not businessfrom frogoutofwater

Top Local Tips for Sydney
Priscilla Priscilla is on at Star City Casino - recommend the show as it was excellent - but eat before as there was nothing decent open after the show
Sydney Aquarium The aquarium is easily accessible by taxi, ferry, or water taxii. If you like aquaria, it is an excellent one, not to be missed, especially the platypus and underwater viewing tunnels.
Doyles on Circular Quay Well worth a visit
