Park Regis City Centre, Sydney: 1,700 reviews and 3 photos

It'll not win any awards, but the Park Regis a perfectly comfortable budget business hotel, rooms approx $150 in a great location (2 minutes to Hyde Park in one direction, 2 minutes the other way will find you at Sydney Town Hall).

Tiny foyer at street level (locked after 10pm but there is 24 hour security so not a problem) and a bit of a crush at the lifts, but the hotel occupies floors 5 - 14 of this 45 storey building (you can also take the lift to the 45th floor - great views over the city and a small pool available for hotel guests). Public access spaces are generally 'tight' (corridors on the room floors do not give you much space) and I assume that the hotel is an office conversion.

As a result of the lack of space, somewhat suprised by the size of the rooms (although I had booked a King Size room for A$10 per night more) - for this price range and location, certainly the biggest rooms I had stayed in in Sydney (and fairly funky too!)

Unique Qualities: King size bed, one wall is virtually all glass overlooking the city towards Hyde Park. Windows can be opened but as the hotel is on the junction of Castlereagh and Park, can get noisy at weekends late at night. Plasma screen TV, lots of space in the room, walk-in shower (no bath) with limited products. Pool on the 45th floor and sun-lounge area with great views over the city.

Friendly, easy going - very good value for money. Clean, central, friendly, funky without being overdesigned, functional. Large Woolworths 2 minutes walk for provisions (open until midnight) and lots of cafes, bars etc in the vicinity.

LIKE THE CENTRAL PARK, GOOD VALUE BUDGET IN THE CITY, NOTHING TO DISLIKE BUT DIFFICULT TO RAVE. I WOULD BE OK ABOUT RETURNING HERE.
