The Swissotel Sydney - Review

You may have read my review of the kids room at the Swissotel Sydney which is quite frankly the most amazing child friendly hotel room we have ever stayed in. It's now time to tell you about our room and the rest of the hotel.

The Swissotel Sydney is a 5* hotel with a fantastic central location on Market Street. It's within walking distance of all the major shopping centres, darling harbour and the cities major attractions.

We used the valet parking service which I would highly recommend if you are driving to the hotel. With 2 children in tow and a busy street to deal with, it was so easy to just drop the car off outside the hotel and to also have it dropped back off when we wanted to leave.

The hotel reception/lobby are is very large and has a wonderful contemporary feel to it. We were checked in to the hotel very quickly which I thought was great. There is nothing worse than waiting in a huge queue and spending half an hour in reception (especially when travelling with children).

Our room was connected to our daughter's room. It was one of the newly renovated premier rooms. I loved how the room was styled. It was very 'clean' looking. It had a colour palette of crisp white and shades of grey and was filled with modern furniture. There was a long corridor to the actual bedroom and bathroom which I liked as it made the room feel more like an apartment.



The bed was absolutely huge. It really was the focal point of the room which I like. You had an option of changing your pillows if they weren't to your liking from the pillow menu. There was plenty of room around the bed. We were able to put the travel cot next to the bed which didn't make the room feel cramped. 




The mini bar was well stocked with lots of different delights. The Swissotel really tries to make your stay as comfortable and as stress-free as possible. The fact that they had a worldwide adapter for you to use is such a helpful idea. It may seem a small gesture but I think it's a brilliant one.



The bathroom was a really good size and it had a separate bath and shower. I hate rooms where they have the shower in the bath. I didn't manage to use the bath but the shower was lovely. 

We ordered room service for dinner which arrived fairly quickly. I was very impressed with the food especially the Sydney Oysters. Hubby had a steak as a main and I had a nasi goreng.



Wifi was provided free which I think is a great feature. I must admit I hate anywhere where you have to pay for it.

The selection of food for breakfast was massive. You could have had anything you could wish for. There was hot, cold, a massive selection of cereals, waffles, continental and more. You name it, they had it. My eggs benedict was perfect.




The hotel has a fully equipped gym, spa and an outdoor swimming pool and jacuzzi. I was desperate to try a spa treatment but we ran out of time after sightseeing.

Overall, we were very impressed with our stay here. The hotel room was a great size. The room service food was so tasty. I'm currently salivating remembering those oysters. The location is perfect, so central and within easy walking distance of all the best attractions. 

**The Swissotel provided us with an overnight stay and breakfast in exchange for our honest opinion**
