    Very good

    The hotel was within walking distance Circular Quay. A free breakfast was served there. It was truly a lovely stay. Woolloomooloo neighborhood was worth exploring.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    I like the style of the apartments and the building design

    Noisy with the windows open. My partner does not like airconditioning. Water at $14 a bottle ridiculous

    Good service Views Proximity to restaurants/hotels Pleasant surrounding to hotel - nice walks

    Didn't realise there was loud music until 12. ok for one night

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The room style is beautiful, the location from the city is a short walk

    The toilet wasnt clean when I checked in, in fact, it wasnt not only not clean but it was 'dirty' on the outside of the bowl. Each time I stay at this hotel, I never ever get a sea view, so dont think you are getting a sea view, even though its on a pier. Very disappointing.

    Perfect

    We loved the whole look and design of Blue A Taj Hotel. The whole stay was luxurious and I really couldnt complain about anything. The staff were excellent, helpful and made us feel very well looked after. I used the Day Spa and was very impressed with their service too. Thankyou to everyone who made our stay in Sydney truely wonderful.

    Location, it was very close to the reunion that we attended that night

    Having to pay $40 for parking after already paying for accomadation, very un Australian

    We liked the unique design.The location was great,close to the city and lots of good restuarants and of course being on the water is always a bonus.It was also suprisingly quite considering it was close to tunnel freeway.

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    the staff were attentive, the rooms comfortable and the location was great, close to the cbd

    I think it should have been pointed out on Booked.net that the payment for the motel was to be paid when you checked out. I was under the impression that it was paid for when the booking was made

  • 6.6
    Nice

    The quirky use of an old wharf building and location

    We felt the emphasis was on business rather than leisure travellers. Breakfasts were a big dissappoinment - recently started buffet style but just hadn't got it right. Restaurant staff were delightful but needed more direction from experienced management.

  • 8.2
    Great

    I liked the quietness even though the “city” is within walking distance. The hotel is located very close to the botanic garden which is excellent for a morning run.

    The prices of the different services, i.e. Internet, laundry, valet parking.

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    Helpful, friendly enthusiastic staff, Decor and view, style, room size, food

    Internet overly expensive - it is mandatory for most and I was missing a cable so had to pay twice for iphone connection and computer.

    The Blue A Taj Hotel was a great stay. We frequent the city and this was the first time we used this hotel and enjoyed it alot. Great blend of heratige and modern feel in and around the hotel.
