Affordable Boutique Hotel in Sydney's City Center

Economical Five-Star Ambiance and Amenities

While vacationing in Sydney, stay in this boutique hotel that boasts a little piece of the city's history. The building that houses The Castlereagh Boutique Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection, was the very first reinforced concrete construction in Sydney. Today, the hotel still offers a 1920's Art Deco-inspired elegance. From lavish architecture and decor to spacious rooms with free wireless Internet, The Castlereagh offers guests a fancy hotel stay without the typical price tag. 

Take the Train from Town Hall Station for Cheap Transportation

Located in the heart of Sydney's central business district, guests will have easy access to the city's many iconic sites, shopping destinations, and world-renowned restaurants. Darling Harbour, The Rocks, and the Circular Quay Ferries are all a quick drive away. Also, the Town Hall train station is just a 4-minute walk from the hotel, making it easy for guests to use cheap public transportation to get around the city. 

Enjoy Dinner In The Castlereagh's Grand Dining Room

Cello's, The Castlereagh Boutique Hotel restaurant, offers a one of a kind dining experience with its 1920's-style atmosphere, world-class menu, and live jazz and piano performances every Friday night. After indulging in dinner at Cello's, take a quick cab ride over to the Sydney Tower and enjoy 360 degree "open air" views of the city. At 309 meters high, you simply won't get better views of Sidney.

During your stay, you'll also be a short walk away from historic Hyde Park, Royal Botanical Gardens, and the Queen Victoria Building. The iconic opera house and harbour bridge are very close too. 

Budget-Friendly Guest Rooms with Comfort and Class in Sydney

The luxurious guest rooms at The Castlereagh feature a comfortable ambiance with plush bedding, free wireless Internet access, teletext televisions, and Foxtel. Guests can choose from rooms with a king, queen, or twin beds. Suites and family friendly adjoining rooms are also available. The Castlereagh also insists on top-notch safety for its guests with 24-hour reception, in-room personal safes, and secure access to every floor.

The Bottom Line

The Castlereagh is in the heart of Sydney's central business district, a great location for those traveling for business or pleasure. The train station is a one-minute walk, which makes transportation around the city easy. With its old world charm and reasonably priced guest rooms, The Castlereagh is unlike any other hotel in Sydney.
