Perched between Sydney’s grown-up central business district and fun-loving Oxford Street, the 241-room Pullman is like a businessman in a sober pinstripe suit flashing neon cartoon socks. The guestrooms feature a vibrant purple, orange and charcoal color scheme, while the spacious lobby’s glitzy cylindrical chandelier illuminates a psychedelic circular rug, enormous deep purple snaking sofas and highly polished marble floors.
Bed and Bath
Arty bed heads frame comfy beds piled with pillows and decorative cushions. The recently retiled marble bathrooms are spacious but monochromatic — quite a contrast to the living areas’ bold block color palette. The corner baths with overhead showers are more functional than glam; the Roger & Gallet amenities are a nod to the Accor chain’s French heritage. Premier Suites offer panoramic views of Hyde Park, while the roomy Junior Suites measure in at around 581 square feet, with a separate lounge area and views of the park or Woolloomooloo Bay. Superior Rooms come with either windows that open or a spacious terrace.
A workout with a view is on offer in the well-equipped adjoining gym or from the Jacuzzi/spa. Or you can just sprawl on a deck chair next to the rooftop pool to take in Sydney’s skyline and its tallest building, Sydney Tower. Dine poolside or head to contemporary restaurant Windows on the Park, which serves international dishes such as grain-fed beef tenderloin in red wine along with a leafy vista over Sydney’s Hyde Park. Café 36 is great for light bites and coffee, while Bar Rendezvous is the place for well-shaken cocktails.
In the Area
Hyde Park separates the Pullman from Sydney’s central business district. Don’t rush through this lunchtime haven for office workers without admiring fig tree–lined Central Avenue. For outstanding sculptures visit the granite-clad, Art Deco ANZAC Memorial to see the Archibald Fountain and Rayner Hoff’s dramatic homage to Australia’s WWI dead. If you dare, battle the city’s chess fanatics on the giant board in Hyde Park’s Nagoya Garden. The Art Gallery of NSW’s Wednesday evening Art After Hours sessions offer live music and art and make a good warmup for the bars and clubs of Oxford Street.
How to Get There
Stayed there for a long weekend. Check in staff were average but breakfast and cafe staff outstanding. Breakfast great value and lots of choice. Cafe had an amazing steak and caramel brulee. Rooms very spacious and lovely to see sunrise each morning. Pool needs to be heated. Asked for later check out and got an extra hour which was useful but staff on desk could not tell me which platform to use for train back to airport which is not good as this is a fairly frequent request I would imagine with train station 100m away.
For Sydney this hotel is reasonably priced but not impressive at all. The rooms are ok and certainly clean and well kept, but the public areas are extremely dated and the restaurant disappointing. Some of the staff are nice and helpful but overall it’s average at best.
Great spot beautiful view of Hyde Park room spacious and clean lovely staff close to CBD and station. Room service bit pricey for average food but overall great hotel will be back. Lovely roof top pool awesome views
I stayed here after my flight from Sydney was cancelled due to extreme weather. After a VERY long day trying to get back home after being away for a month for work, I arrived at the hotel in the early hours.
I received a friendly and sympathetic welcome and was quickly checked in to a really nice room on a high floor overlooking Hyde Park. Despite the hour, I was able to get a hot meal through Room Service which arrived in good time and was hot and very tasty.
The breakfast team in the morning were happy and welcoming and the buffet had a sensational offering of hot and cold food with plenty of healthy options and some nice indulgences too.
Check out was quick and easy with the gentleman who was helping me giving me simple directions to the closest shop so I could pick up a few things. I left my Opal card at home so when I asked him for the nearest place to get one on Saturday morning, he gave me directions and then offered to give me his own card!! Now that is amazing service.
On a day when I just wanted to get home and see my family after a long time away, the forced, but very welcome, stay at the Pullman made a whole lot of things better and easier.
Thanks to all. Highly recommended hotel and now at the top of my list for the next time I am in Sydney.
We had plans in the city on a Friday night. We decided to stay Friday and Saturday and got a great deal at the Pullman, one complimentary night using our Accor Membership and the other reasonably priced.
Check in was easy. All staff we encountered here were great. Location was fantastic, we usually stay closer to darling harbour but this was easy for us to explore the bars and nightlife of other areas in Sydney we don’t usually and we found amazing places to eat close by.
Our room was amazing! (1514) had 2 double beds and amazing view over Hyde park and the city, large, spacious, clean, huge bathroom with a large corner bath that we made the most of. Beds were comfortable and we had long lazy mornings and a late check out. Would definitely stay here again and again. Parking is secure under hotel but is $50 per night FYI.
