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.
