Hotel was good. Dined at restaurant on site. Ordered two entrees and waited one hour to be served. I thought it was embarrassing for the waitresses as it wasn't busy. Would never dine there again. But liked the location of hotel.
Room was pleasant on the 12th floor. Clean and functional. Bathroom was a bit tight so if you're a larger person, navigating the room might be difficult.
The bed was excellent! Very comfy.
Even on the 12th floor you can hear the metro trains, but its not overly loud.
Public transport is very close and for a return trip to the city/Circular Quay its $8 Vs $50 taxi.
Staff were friendly and knowledgeable without being overbearing
Breakfast is expensive for what you get. Also on two occasions certain items of food had run out.

We booked the Urban as we wanted to go to Luna Park for our daughters birthday. We all loved the Urban & we will be going back!!! The staff are wonderful, loved the cleaning staff so lovely very impressed with the cleanliness of the Urban.
Great location, public transport right outside the front door. An IGA 50 mtrs away, plenty of local restaurants too. Only complaint is arriving after hours licating the key box down in the bottom left corner of the post boxes was not initially obvious. No phone number for after hours was obvious either.
Easy walk to Lane Cove for dinner. Close to city, comfortable and great views. Big bath towels, comfy bed, clean and tidy. Doesn't look a million dollars from the outside but inside is the same as any hotel on Hyde park :) Only much much cheaper! Will definitely stay again. Thanks
North Sydney is a compact secondary central business district. High-rise offices, cafés, restaurants, pubs, and a few small shopping malls dominate. Busy from Monday–Friday, it quiets down on weekends, but within 1 km is the relaxed, al fresco café, pub, and restaurant scene of Blues Point Road. Trendy Kirribilli is not much further away at the northern base of the Harbour Bridge.
