About this area

Haymarket

In the city centre and near a metro station, Great Southern Hotel Sydney is in an area with good shopping. Sydney Tower and Sydney Opera House are notable landmarks, and some of the area's activities can be experienced at Circular Quay and Overseas Passenger Terminal. Check out an event or a game at Sydney Cricket Ground, and consider making time for SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the hotel's convenience for public transport: Capitol Square Light Rail Station is just steps away and Central Light Rail Station is 4 minutes by foot.

  • Liked: Cleanliness

It was very central to central station and light rail nearby as well, which made travel very convenient. Our 4 day stay was not covered by room service of which I was unaware. I approached the reception desk on day 3 and was given fresh towels, toilet paper and shampoo at no extra cost thankfully.
