Got back from Sydney last Sunday night. My 3 nights stay with Vulcan Hotel has been awesome. I would like to thank the receptionist, Julia. She has been very helpful and informative on Sydney.
The hotel is situated in a reasonable good location.
Nearest station: Central Station (15 minutes walk from the hotel)
Nearby places: Chinatown, Paddy’s Market, Sydney Fish Market, Darling Harbour
I am someone who loves to walk. This place was good for me because I could take a walk from hotel to Sydney Fish Market. It took about 20 minutes.
The room I had was on the 3rd floor, facing the road to Sydney Fish Market. I love the simple design of the room.
They provided me candies and the week’s weather report on the bed. It was sad because it rained throughout my trip.
There is a mirror on the door so you can “check” before you head out.
My room has bathtub! Awesome to have a warm bath on my second day after walking since 5.30am. I could barely feel my feet but the hot bath was a saver.
I also had hot chocolate at the cafe. It was good, especially on a rainy morning. Took pictures on my cellphone but it broke the next day when I was back in Singapore.
When I first got to the hotel, there was some renovations going on. The building was built in 1894, I understand many works had to be done to maintain it. Just don’t be surprise with the renovation. I believe they are doing their best to keep the disturbance to the minimum.
Just take note that you might hear people talking from other rooms if they have loud voices. It was fine for me and I also took consideration of the television volume. Lowered it so I wouldn’t disturb others.
There has been a mixed reviews about Vulcan Hotel on tripadvisor but I took my chance and I am a very satisfied customer.
If you are hungry, you can order food either from the reception counter or through a call. They do not have a restaurant but they have 2 deliver options from nearby restaurants.
Just take note that the receptionist works till 10pm only. The main entrance to the hotel reception will be locked after 10pm and you will have to get through the door beside the main entrance with a key.
In case, you are hungry after 10pm, take a stroll to Chinatown and be spoiled with many food options. I did just that and I was amazed by how delicious the Thai food were in Sydney!
If you are someone who like boutique hotels, you will love this place.
