Great Venue, Great Location, Great Staff
Jeremy was fantastic. He was professional and helpful, ensuring that I had everything I needed to make my stay comfortable. I prefer to stay at the Vulcan when I am in Sydney. The hotel is well appointed, central and with so much within walking distance. The staff and owners are always friendly and welcoming.

Great Value Hotel
The Vulcan Hotel in Sydney is a great value accommodation. Check-in was simple and quick, having arrived at an off-peak time, I had to call reception to let me in to the building, however, this wasn't a problem and was fast. The room was clean, modern and very comfortable. The bathroom was also very clean and had an amazing shower. Unusually, you only receive one lot of shampoo and conditioner, despite having two guests checked into the room. My only real concern, was that on Australia Day my room wasn't cleaned despite having put out the 'clean my room' sign. Upon asking at reception the following day, I was advised that the cleaner hadn't come in that day due to low occupancy. Althought this wasn't a major concern, as I was able to get clean towels upon request, I believe that guests should have been advised that cleaning would not be taking place on this day. I had to checkout early and was able to easily utilise their express checkout form located near the reception. Great value and price compared to other hotels in the CBD, definitely would stay here again.
