Bottom Line

The Cambridge Hotel Sydney a mid-range chain hotel in Surry Hills, near government buildings and to the immediate southeast of the Central Business District. The decor is modern, with pops of bright color, and most rooms have ample space. In addition to modern bathrooms, some rooms have kitchenettes and small dining areas, while all have electric kettles. An additional perk here is the large indoor pool and Jacuzzi under a massive skylight. The hotel has one restaurant, but with Oxford and George Streets nearby, there is plenty to eat, drink, and do just outside the hotel.
