Old charmer

While the rooms decor is a tad 'tired', The Grace is still my preferred place to stay in Sydney.

Stylish hotel in the heart of Sydney

I have stayed at this hotel several times and it remains my first choice. The decor is distinctive and original features of the building have been retained which makes a pleasant change from the somewhat standardised features of many hotels. Rooms are a good size and clean. During my last stay the hotel was being refurbished; this did not affect me but a friend on a different floor said she could hear work being carried out.

Nice Hotel but!

I was charged for mini bar purchases when I did not use anything from the mini bar. Had to call hotel to rectify after checking my credit card statement, they did reverse the charge....but was an unnecessary inconvenience.

Convenient and classy city hotel

Pros: Location
Cons: The speed of the internet connection. Reminded me of an old dial up speed!
A one night stay in Sydney CBD and the Grace was good for that. I like the location, within easy walking distance of so much and close to public transport. The place has an old world ambience about it but with modern facilities. Shame the internet speed is so slow and unreliable though. Ask for a room with a street view. The first room I was given had a window on to an interior courtyard. Though the room was large the light was poor and the overall feel was depressing. Staff were happy to change my room to a street view. The room was smaller but had a much nicer feeling to it.

Great hotel , great location. Near QVB .

Pros: Location, charm and cost.
Cons: Water pressure. Nothing is worse than a lousy shower.
Location: York street is fabulous. Close to buses, QVB , Pitt street shopping. Hotel is charming. And friendly. Cafes and pubs nearby .
Great location near the QVB . Best shopping experience and now decorated for Christmas. The Grace Hotel had old world charm , very pleasant staff. We arrived at 12.30 pm and happily checked us in. Our few complaints were the cold room, hard to regulate the temp, but we slept fine with another blanket, and obviously cutting back on water. The pressure was not great if you wanted that fast hot shower. Other than that, no real problems. We enjoyed out stay.

Well located near public transport, shopping areas, financial district and numerous tourist attractions. Hotel accommodation was medium-expensive, but relative to other Sydney hotels was competitive value. Room was good size, comfortable and serviced well and early each day.
