        • Older travelers

          It was surprisingly quiet, although we were next to the guest entrance, so heard people coming and going. Road noise wasn't too bad either. The shower was really great, suited tall & short people.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          clean room, renovated and very classy.

          bathroom window was jammed open

        • Older travelers

          Close to shops & walking distance Darling Harbour. The room was a little small but was comfitable. Lots of resturants to choose from close by.

        • Single

          I most disliked the fact that the publicity about this hotel is extremely misleading. It's located in a dead area of town well away from any facilities and extremely hard to get to on foot, without having to negotiate some very pedestrian unfriendly areas. There is no bar or even a foyer and no mini bars in the rooms so if you want a drink the only option is to use the vending machine. This hotel would be acceptable for someone on an expense account using the convention centre. Otherwise my advice would be to give it a miss.

          Price, botique, close to city.

          My parkig ticket, and ease of finding the hotel.

        • Couple
          7.8

          The customer service was superb.

          The hotel was just starting renovation work. The noise was throughout the day only but unfortunately, we needed a bigger lye in than the noise allowed.

        • Older travelers
          8.0

          Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Room was in a good location reasonably close to the CBD and close to transport. Room was clean and supplies feely given when asked for extra i.e. extra washer and soaps as only given one for 2 people first 2 days.

          The room we were given (107) was a tiny claustrophobic room below ground level. We couldn't open our window as people walking past in the street could look in so very disappointing. My husband is a large man and the room was very small and uncomfortable for him to get around the bed etc as limited space. We were there 4 nights but as we weren't spending a lot of time in our rooms we didn't say anything to the reception staff but wouldn't recommend it to anyone else if they stayed on that level in a room that size. Have never been given a hotel room this small or low to the ground like that before so disappointed but didn't let it spoil our lovely holiday. Thanks

          i liked how quiet it was in my room, not much noise from other guests. I found the bed very comfortable.

          I would have liked to have an iron in my room.

          8.8

          Modern rooms, very clean and comfortable. Cafe style breakfast room was very welcoming,the coffee good, and staff very helpful. Whilst near to a busy road, the room was very quiet thanks to a noise screening shutter.

          it was quiet, clean and convenient to darling harbour being just a short walk

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          room facing the main rd was quite noisy- more soundproofing would be good.

        • Single
          9.2

          Quiet, private hotel, warm and comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          The style, location and staff. Style - pleasant room, location - dining & access to the airport, staff - very helpful, accomadating, pleasant and knowledgeable about the area

          Our bathroom did not have appropriate steam ventilation and separation of the water from the shower so that the floor remains dry. I think that this style of bathroom is not as pleasant as it could be.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Close to the areas I wanted to visit at that time. The room was small but well equipped with reasonable sound-proofing.

        • Older travelers
          9.4

          The location of the "Vulcan Hotel Ultimo" my wife and I found to to be perfect, close to the city, parks, restaurants and entertainment. Both my wife and I will stay there again.
