Perfect location: Hotel Coronation at Sydney, Australia

Hi guys! I'm back! Based from my previous post on Where to stay in Sydney and Gold Coast?, here's an update on our stay in Hotel Coronation.

For those who are still looking on where to stay in Sydney that wants your own private room and bathroom, you may try Hotel Coronation. The hotel is in Sydney CBD. It's right beside Town Hall Station, and just few stops away from Circular Quay and Central Station.

We enjoyed our stay here because of the location. We did not have any problems on getting around Sydney on our own. The room is perfect for us as we only need a clean room where we can sleep comfortably.

Hotel Coronation right infront of Town Hall Station. There's also another entrance/exit on the left side corner of Hotel Coronation block.

Basic room

The room is small, but clean.  And good for two persons only.

Our view from 3rd floor. On the left corner, you can see Queen Victoria Building, a high-end shop with nice architectural design. 

Our view from 3rd floor on the right side. You can see Gloria Jeans, McDonalds, and Hungry Jacks (Burger King).

Bathroom is clean. They provide soap, shampoo, conditioner,  body towels, and face towels. They replenish and clean the room daily.

Hotel Coronation entrance is a narrow hallway. It looks like a hostel for backpackers. But for $109/night with your own bathroom and right in Sydney CBD, I can't complain.

Pros:

  • Location! Location! Location!
  • There are shops, restaurants, malls (Westfield, etc), food courts around the hotel within 100m
  • Town Hall Station is right beside the Hotel. We use the train from Airport to Hotel and vice versa. From town hall, you can go to Circular Quay and Central Station where lots of nice places to visit.
  • Walking distance to Westfield, Queen Victoria Building, Paddy's Market.
  • Woolsworth (big grocery store) beside the Hotel.
  • Room and bathroom is clean. With hot and cold water. With aircon/heater.
  • AUD $109/night with your own room and bathroom.
  • Daily housekeeping if you want; we only asked then to clean it once on our 3rd day stay.
Cons: 
  • Room is small and looks old
  • It's not sound proof. You can hear the noises from the street.
  • Curtains does not cover the whole window, so it's a little bright especially at sunrise which is 5:30am.
  • Old style elevator. Sometimes, it's not working.
  • Stairs looks scary because of dim light. 

Yes, we will stay here again as the location is perfect! We got the room that we need, and we were able to sleep well!
