Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Excellent Central Business District location for exploring Sydney
  • Spacious rooms have retro-modern decor
  • Apartment-style rooms with kitchenettes
  • Sexy, dim lighting and dark walls provide atmosphere
  • Convenient and stylish lobby bar for coffee or cocktails
  • Sleek bathrooms, some with deep free-standing tubs
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • On a busy intersection -- street noise is an issue
  • Some complaints about dim lighting at night

Bottom Line

Park 8 offers hip, apartment-style rooms in Sydney's Central Business District. The 36 rooms have 60s-inspired, minimalist decor, as well as kitchenettes with mini-fridges and electric kettles. The rooms are large, and go up in price from standard to the deluxe to the loft room, a two-level space with lots of light. Bathrooms are bright and sleek with vessel sinks, and some have free-standing tubs. The location of the hotel is fantastic for seeing Sydney, and the price is usually fair.
