Swissotel Sydney Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Central Business District, Sydney, Australia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located in the Central Business District's shopping hub
  • Close to many tourist attractions and landmarks
  • Modern, sophisticated decor
  • Spacious rooms, some with excellent city views
  • Executive level rooms come with free Wi-Fi, breakfast, drinks
  • Fine dining at JPB and cocktails at Crossroads Bar
  • Peaceful outdoor heated pool on the rooftop

Cons

  • Fees for Wi-Fi and parking (free valet for hybrids)
  • Necessary to take 2 elevators to reach rooms
  • Some complaints of worn furniture
  • Flat-screen TVs in lower-level rooms are small
  • Expensive breakfast

Bottom Line

The luxurious Swissotel Sydney is located in the Central Business District, close to the Pitt Street Mall and Queen Victoria Building. The layout of the property is a bit of a hassle, as guests must take two elevators -- the first to the eighth floor reception desk, the second to their rooms. The 359 rooms are what you'd expect from an upscale chain -- contemporary and spacious, and about on par with those at a typical Westin or Marriott. Bathrooms are above average, with bathtubs and separate showers, and some rooms have excellent city views. Executive level rooms come with extra perks, including free breakfast, nightly drinks, and Wi-Fi. JPB restaurant offers Australian cuisine in a fine dining setting, while the Crossroads Bar is a stylish, casual place for high tea, cocktails and light snacks. Hyrbrid car drivers also receive free valet parking.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Located in the heart of Sydney’s shopping district, next to the Pitt Street Mall, Queen Victoria Building and the Westfield Sydney

Swissotel is located in the Central Business District's shopping hub, next to the Queen Victoria building and a few blocks from Hyde Park.

Sydney, the site of the first British colony in Australia, was established on January 26, 1788 -- a date that's still celebrated with festivities all over the country. Home to over four million people, the city has grown to become one of the most cosmopolitan places in the world. The state capital of New South Wales, it jumped into the international spotlight in 2000 when it hosted the Olympics. While it is mentioned alongside other major cities like London, Paris and New York, its vibe differs from the usual hustle and bustle of those metropolises. Sydney usually receives 300 sunny days a year, and the lifestyle is more slow-paced; though the people are classy and cultured, they're also laid-back.

From the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, to the fun Bondi Beach and Queen Victoria Building, Sydney is rich in historic landmarks, art and cultural institutions, wildlife and nature, gastronomic hubs, shopping centers and a vibrant nightlife scene.
