Pullman Sydney Hyde Park Rating: 4.5 Pearls
Darlinhurst, Sydney, Australia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Daily fee for both valet and self-parking
  • Pricey daily rates for both wired and wireless Internet
  • Some rooms are in need of an update
  • Rooftop pool is small, with limited lounge space
  • Fitness center is small

Bottom Line

Located just off Hyde Park in Darlinghurst is an upscale, business-oriented property with many meeting spaces and a business center (though there's a fee to use the Internet). However, many guests feel it doesn't live up to its advertised five-star status. Though common spaces feel posh -- the lobby exudes class and sophistication with fresh orchids, marble floors, and a cozy guest lounge -- rooms are typical of a nicer Pullman hotels, with chain-like contemporary decor and flat-screen TVs. The kitchenette amenities, including microwaves, coffeemakers, and toasters, are a bonus, however, and some rooms have high-end bathrooms with soaking tubs. The classy Windows on the Park restaurant, with its beautiful views of Hyde Park, is worthy of a luxury hotel, as if the rooftop pool with great city views -- but the small fitness center, not so much.
