    Great rooms at great prices”

    Very nice rooms with comfortable beds and good ensuites. I stayed in a Single Shoebox room and it was terrific and just all that I needed. It was not only close to a venue I was going to but also so close and easy to get to Darling Harbour. Breakfast in the cafe was very good too.

    Spacious room with warmth, feels like home”

    Spacious room, good location, warmth-helpful staff

    We stayed at Vulcan Hotel to spend New Year in Sydney. It's one of the hotel that had the lowest price considering its location (and the fact it's New Year period!). The hotel used old building but has modern interior and rooms with complete utilities inside. The room we had very spacious with nice bed, good for us travelling with young children. The staff are friendly, warmth, and very helpful. Honestly, our stay was so smooth and it felt like your own home. Very easy to walk to few attractions in Sydney including Paddy's Market. Also easy if you want to take public transport, close to bus stop and 5-10 minutes walk to tram and train station. Strongly recommended!

    Great location, excellent room, friendly service”

    Position, large, well appointed room

    My daughter and I had a fantastic time while staying for 2 nights at the Vulcan Hotel. The office staff were friendly, open and always at hand. They helped as when we needed it. There were food delivery services close at hand and had no difficulty accessing the hotel. The room we stayed in was excellent. Large TV, kitchenette, tea making facilities and comfortable chairs. The large bed was made with crisp linen sheets and plenty of pillows. Everything worked well (except the left hand bed side lamp's bulb didn't work - this was reported on leaving the hotel). Everything was clean and the staff were great at tidying and cleaning our room throughout the day. Access to the Hotel was easy on the main road for taxis and we were able to walk to main areas of Sydney. We would easily book this Hotel again and recommend it to our friends and family.
