Very Good Stay at the Vulcan Hotel

"I had a very good stay at The Vulcan. The family-run hotel where you can chat to the owners is unique. The room I had was quiet and the bed comfy.
The location is very handy to Sydney and Ultimo has enough attraction as well with Asian food outlets, Whit Rabbit Gallery, cinema and a shopping centre all close."
Ann-Maree, March 2021 (TripAdvisor)

Bit of NY in Sydney

" Staff very helpful and courteous. Reminded me of NY."

Best little kept secret

"Staying here for a month off and on and what a little treat for the solo travellers or couples who just need a neat place to stay. Hospitality old school style. Ask and they will help, lovely chill atmosphere and very clean, neat and tidy. Thanks for the great stay."
Olivia P, May 2021 (Tripadvisor)

Very good

Breakfast was very good and especially the coffee. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. This is the second time I've stayed and it now feels like a 'home away from home'.
Bernadette, May 2021 (Booking.com)

Excellent stay!

"Welcomed with lovely service, the room was clean and tidy with thoughtful ammenities! Only a short walk to central station, and a range of bars and restaurants. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again!"

Lovely hotel

Had to stay here for a business trip, great staff, spacious rooms, excellent position yet never felt really busy. Will return there if I get the opportunity, much prefer the ambiance of this boutique hotel to the sterility of the larger, multinational hotels.

I love this little boutique hotel. It is our go to for short stays in Sydney. Breakfast was tasty.

Great location, friedly staff, excellent breakfast

The hotel is in a charming heritage building on a corner site, one side facing a quiet street. The staff are super friendly, the ground floor cafe serves a great breakfast. It feels like a family business.

Nice place to stay and good value. Close enough to town to access with a walk and far enough from town to still have on street parking.

Intimate hotel with very nice breakfast room

We had to book in late and the person who unlocked the door could not have been more pleasant. Also a delightful 'trainee' behind the desk during the day could not have been more helpful. Beds comfortable, although small the room had everything we needed. Generous shower head! Particularly loved the ambience of the breakfast room.
Annabel B, February 2020 (Booking.com)

Excellent 

I stayed three nights alone travelling for work. This was an excellent hotel stay - room was comfortable and had everything I needed. Staff very friendly. The cafe is great for breakfast with excellent coffee. Good value and comfort is not easy to find in Sydney but I would recommend the Vulcan. Definitely would stay again.

Our Reviews

  • All good. As described, nice and easy. Near everything. Would go again.

    Rodrigo

  • Comfortable and quiet location. Good breakfast menu. Easy access to tram and downtown. Friendly and helpful staff. It is more of a boutique hotel, but bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and spacious. Didn't notice anything off on the quality compared to larger hotels. Definitely would recommend especially if traveling for business.

  • The location is very good as it is close to the city and public transport, but reasonably quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and we were treated with care and respect. The breakfast was delicious, the coffee excellent, and the little dining room was lovely. Our room was very comfortable and quiet

  • I asked to change to a room with a tree outlook so I cold get up early and leave y blinds open. the reception staff couldn't have been more accommodating! they also set me up to study in a pleasant courtyard and the owner found me an extension cord for my computer - so kind! My room was spotless, even the carpet which looked brand new, and the pillows really comfortable.
