Grand (definition)
adjective
1.
magnificent and imposing in appearance, size, or style.

I wanted to preface that, because this place is antonymous in every meaning. The rooms have no bathrooms, there's a communal bathroom that I would say is for the traveler who is equal parts brave and foolish.

The rooms themselves look like they haven't been maintained since they opened. There is a basin in the room, "why?" you ask, well simple, that's so after you use the communal toilet you then walk to your room and wash your hands.

Now this is specific to ourselves but we arrived early and asked to check in an hour early, they said no. And in hindsight I find that funny because they didn't need time to clean the rooms because I dont think that's a thing they do around here.

The staff downstairs were friendly, I have no issues with them at all.

Cannot stress this enough. Don't stay here. Ignore this at your peril.

I like to start with the positives and there are a few. First of all, this location is close to all the "touristy" places if you're a visitor to Sydney. It's very cheap and the girls manning the bar/hotel desk are quite friendly and hot. Hotel patrons get 10% off bar prices.

The not-so-good bits are, the rooms look dated and I mean 70's dated. There's no air conditioning just fans which wasn't too bad tbh. It's entry level budget when it comes to facilities. They have a manual elevator which means that you need to push two metal doors to get in and out, good luck if you're weak, injured, or drunk.

So why would someone stay there? And who would stay there? A solo budget traveller or a young couple would, it's an upgrade to a backpackers dorm. Someone that wants to be close to the must see places in Sydney.
I stayed there because I do reviews of random hotels, etc for google.

Service and location was ok i guess

But the rooms are in terrible condition. My friend had an allergic reaction from all that dust. Do they even clean the carpets? It's reallllllly dirty. Would not come back again. Lifts are also so old you have to manually open da doors and they are indeed sooooo heavy

This review it's all about the Bar downstairs. It is my favorite place when I visit Sydney. Small and cozy place. Very good service e and cheaper beer compared to many places around. Just walk away when the bossy "far bald and racist" manager is attending the bar. He gives very different service depending on the race. I have seen him several times and always the same. At the end another "powerful bartender" I don't post pictures for respect but you will know who he is

Visited Sydney from adelaide with my family who came from overseas. We booked 2 rooms. Rooms were old smelly no air condition, full of dust not cleaned as per standard.

Main thing is we didn't felt safe, our both rooms were wide open with lights on whole day till when we were back at 9.30pm since morning. We felt embarrassed in front of our parents from overseas Australiain hotel is this low with saftey issue.
We complained manger but they were not aware of it, she pointed out mistake to morning cleaners. Whoever it was its not our problem our valuables were left in room trusting hotel, luckily nothing were missing but rooms were not cleaned though was as it is.

Manager James offered a dinner on the house food was good though. Hats off to chef. Manager also offered refund for that night but they didn't bother to refund till now been waiting so I had to write a review.
Lift is manual door may be from 16th century bit scary.

Will never recommend to anyone ever. But I will recommend food there.

Ate here with my family and seriously blown away on how good the food was. Upstairs was beautiful and complimented the downstairs bar perfectly.

Would certainly make my way here again when in Sydney.

Room was no better than a prison cell. Very very basic. Bed got remade on morning 2 but no stock up of tea bags, or emptying of bin. Noisy hotel all night - hotel noise. Window didn't close. Curtains didn't block out much light so room was hard to sleep in. Awful mould in shower. Location is great though.

I don't often write reviews, but I feel the need to write this one so that no one else has to endure the situation I found myself in. The room was absolute rubbish, with none of the appliances working, a broken window lock that let in constant construction noise from nearby, and excessive dust. Their escalator only goes down halfway some of the time, which isn't bad if you fancy that 'final destination' thrill. Speaking of final destinations, this will indeed be the last time I visit this hotel. STAY AWAY.

This is a pub accommodation so keep in mind that the rooms are located from level 3 after two bars, a casino and two restaurants. There are no lifts so keep this in mind if you have large suitcases. The rooms smell like mould and I believe it's because of how old the building is, the lack of maintenance and the fact that there is no air conditioning. The bed and towels seemed clean but we still used our own. The toilets and showers are shared and therefore they were always smelly and dirty, the only thing you have in the room is a sink to wash your hands or teeth. The staff is friendly and you get 10% off your drinks. The best thing about this place is the location, quite close to Circular Quay and light train station that takes you to Chinatown, Haymarket, central railway station and many other tourist attractions.

The service was below average. I asked for a Jameson neat and was told I could only get it watered down on the rocks. I assume this is due to some previous caution with drunk patrons. Next, I notified them of the bathroom leaking and they just nodded and went on their way. There was no soap to wash hands with either. This place is a mess.

After my partner's sudden death, I needed to "budget". I'm ok with backpacker level, but The Grand has dignified 'class'. I recommend it 110%, but please, save me a room for my variable visits from Newcastle for theatre. See you in the bar for a drink... you'll enjoy the vibe! Steve ???-

It was fairly underwhelming this place. The housing is actually decent and affordable and the bar is nice but the service is lacklustre and the food was, well meh. For a hotel this location is fine. And it is located in the city which is nice. But the service is poor. I ordered food at the pub area and despite being the only one there, I was served 40 minutes after ordering. The food quality was nothing exceptional but not bad. But the food prices are expensive for the portion that you get. I would rate it 3.5 if I could.

Just left this place five minutes ago after being ignored like I was invisible despite being well dressed in a suit just coming from a speaking engagement with my brother who was dressed the same. I didn't catch the names but there was a gentleman with an Asian background and a blonde haired gal who repeatedly ignored us and served people repeatedly that came in behind us. Honestly we felt insulted so we walked out! I've traveled to over 70 countries and never experienced this. We actually came in to go to the scotch bar upstairs but it was closed, big mistake I'm coming to this smaller place and I don't recommend it to anyone despite the place looking great with a historic atmosphere!

Amazing friendly atmosphere FULL marks to Lawrence and Nikki, I was made really welcome (whilst being 11,000 miles from home) ... The Beef / Guinness pie and mash is superb..... do you deliver to England ? ??? nice room, bar downstairs. Highly recommended.

Our experience was great. The Grand is centrally located with an easy walk to the Wynyard train station - convenient if you take the train from Sydney airport. It's very close to Circular Quay, the Rocks, and a 2 min walk to George Street which takes you to the centre of the city. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Ruddy, the manager is just awesome. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a cheap place to stay. Just remember that it is an old building with old rooms, with that old building smell but the beds, rooms, bathrooms are very clean, and there is an iron and ironing board in the hallway if you need one. Also, remember to press the button on your door when you leave the room so that it locks.

Great simplicity, when all you need is a room to sleep, down stairs the grand hotel bar is really busy on a Thursday and friday afternoon from about 3pm onwards, the only down side to this experience was the 100 year old lift (still better than walking up stairs) and cleanliness in the room could be better, floors where dirty, sink was blocked, but I feel these are minor things when you weigh up location ( great location ) and cost. I do recommend grand hotel

I recently stayed at The Grand Hotel for a work trip as it was the only place available at such short notice. It's pub accommodation, and for that it's quite good for what it is.
The building is an older renovation for the most part, and the shared bathrooms are clearly leftover from a time where that was common, but it gave me the best shower I have ever had from a hotel - I suspect because it was old enough to get around the water efficiency regulations that exist today.
The only downside was that the TV in room 47 didn't work the one time I tried it. This wasn't a big deal though, as I was able to stream what I wanted to watch on my laptop using the free WiFi.

What ab excellent way to end a morning meeting (or strike)...
Rooms everywhere, simple ordering system using QR code on your table, very accommodating for the princess garlic pants present, not so noisy that you couldn't hold a decent volume of conversation, and super friendly staff, all within walking distance of Martin place. Old world charm, good range of meals and they even sell beer!

Value for money.
I found it a comfortable place to stay.

It's a pub , so don't expect a hotel accommodation.

Well located for city sights.

Bit noisy, but again, you are in the middle of the city, on a pub.

Interesting elevators
Baths in bathrooms.

Keys pickup from from bar, which is busy

Friendly check in and staff

Decent pub with standard pub food done very well. Not much seating on ground floor but that just adds to atmosphere.

Was there last night (Friday). Your staff are excellent, as was the pub food. That and not being drowned out by loud music made it a really good casual venue.

For the budget price for stay, the room was pleasing enough for one night. Comfort level was ok, sheets were clean and room tidy but unfortunately only hot water in the room sink was available and no milk for hot beverages available in mini fridge.However, the lady who checked us in was friendly and polite and so were the other staff.
