Blue Hotel, Sydney

September 07, 2012

When we travel, we are not the type who will explore the hotel we stay in, especially when we visit a new city. The reason being is because we usually leave the hotel early and come back around 9 or 10. Or even midnight. So it's actually a waste to stay in a nice hotel because we never get a chance to use the facility. But when you travel with two kids, you'll be extra tired at the end of the night so a sizable room equipped with a nice fluffy king size bed with crisp white sheet and little things within reach (the tea pot, refrigerator, microwave, utensils) are always appreciated.

In Sydney, we tried a boutique hotel called Blue Hotel in Woolloomooloo. The building is not just like a regular hotel as it's actually a renovated wharf. It's very unique from the outside as well as in the inside. The room is a loft style so it's pretty big. It's nice if you want to stay for longer period as you can have guest in the living room. The view is a small marina, complete with the yachts and Sydney skyline. There's the famous Harry's Cafe de Wheels next to it, so if you're hungry in the middle of the night, you can always step out for a quick bite. The location is not exactly in CBD but it's not too far of a walk because as soon as you passed Botanical Garden next to it, the view of the Opera House will emerge. Taxi is always in line right at the front. And Sydney Hop on Hop off bus also has a stop right there. Transportation is not an issue.

Too bad we cannot say anything regarding its other facilities because the areas we stepped in were only the lobby and the room. Didn't even check out the swimming pool *sigh*.

From the front!
The side :D
