Posted on April 21, 2011 | HotelsNo Comment

Get ready to explore the 19th century feel amidst the modern luxury in the Observatory Hotel Sydney. The name itself suggests that you are certainly to recall some of the astronomical features such as the Globe (it is the bar here), shining night sky (that is the ceiling architecture here), and Galileo (it is the restaurant name here). Although it is named observatory, the guests are not only left observing its beauty, but are also given the chance to remain active by a myriad of entertaining as well as thrilling activities. But despite endless fun and proximity with the hustling Sydney Harbor Bridge, this Orient-Express sanctuary in one of the most expensive cities on the planet is famous for its peaceful ambiance. Besides that, this boutique-style hotel is famous for is Day Spa offering a pampering session, creative gourmet preparations in the most famous Galileo Restaurant, and a high tea in the bar.

The Observatory Hotel Sydney enjoys a central location in the city due to which one can easily start to explore this energetic city’s major attractions such as the Opera House and the Bridge simply by walking for few minutes.

You can expect all the standard facilities as well as services such as DVD player, CD player, pay movies, premium bedding, hypo-allergenic bedding, complimentary newspaper, climate control, phone, voice mail, coffee/tea maker, mini bar, daily housekeeping, hair dryer, complimentary bottled water, designer toiletries, turndown service, private ensuite bathroom, bathrobes, mirror, bathroom phone, in-room massage, separate bathtub and shower, desk, slippers, cribs, cable television service, opening window, welcome amenities, clock radio, cribs, rollaway beds, curtains, iron/ironing board, wired/wireless high-speed Internet access (surcharge), safe even for the laptop, double sink, and television internet access (surcharge).
