Having not heard of Sydney’s Megaboom City Hotel, I wasn’t sure what to expect on my arrival. I was pleasantly surprised.
Having walked along York Street many times, I didn’t even realise the hotel was located in the busy heart of Sydney’s CBD. This may be due to the hotel’s lack of a street presence. To get to the small reception area you need to take the lift or stairs to the first floor. Furthermore the hotel has no dining facilities.
Reviews suggested the hotel’s rooms were small, so I was surprised by the size of my room. It later turned out I was in a “deluxe queen room with disable access” explaining the large entry area.
While the room had no view – my one window faced another hotel room window – I didn’t find it claustrophobic.
The hotel reminded me of many Asian hotels I have stayed in and I wasn’t surprised to discover the hotel is owned by Asian interests.
Initially choosing the hotel due to its reasonable rates (I payed $165 a night) in the very expensive Sydney market, I would happily return to the Megaboom. Although, given the popularity of the hotel, especially with Americans during my stay, I’m not sure how long rates will stay at such levels!
