The Ultimo Sydney, Haymarket

Sydney | The Ultimo Sydney is a four-star hotel inside a heritage listed building that dates back to 1911. The hotel blends a contemporary design with heritage-listed elements to good effect. The result is a hotel that feels fresh, while retaining an element of historic charm.

Make the most of this fantastic location, set right in the heart of Chinatown and where affordable stays meet comfortable style. This is where the action lives, in close proximity to the ICC and Darling Harbour.


The hotel is located in Haymarket, the heart of Sydney’s Chinatown, offering guests easy access to the wealth of amazing food and drink options in the area. It’s a five minute walk to Central Station, and a four minute walk to Darling Harbour and the International Convention Centre. This location means that everything you need is easily accessible, be it in the CBD or further out.


The Ultimo offers seven room configurations, all featuring a combination of exposed brick walls, sleek white tiles, and contemporary furnishings. The smallest room type ‘Ultimo Single’, features a king bed in a compact space. The large ‘Ultimo Studio’ rooms, meanwhile, features a king bed plus an additional sofa bed, with enough space to comfortably sleep four guests. Other configurations include things like rooms with access to a rooftop courtyard.

Each room features a wall-mounted flat screen TV, air conditioning, private ensuite, hair dryer, and tea and coffee making facilities. Bathrooms are small, with toiletries included.

There’s free Wi-Fi in all rooms (and throughout the hotel), and multiple Australian standard power outlets.


The hotel features a 24-hour front desk, pet-friendly courtyard rooms, convenient barista coffee station, guest laundry facilities, and tour desk services.

Secure undercover parking is available at the Wilson Parking station located at 169-179 Thomas Street for $38 per 24 hours with unlimited entry and exit. Parking tickets must be validated and paid for at hotel reception before exiting.

Eat & Drink

There’s no food and drink offering at The Ultimo beyond the option of a continental boxed breakfast and barista coffee for $15.00. When you’re located in this part of town, however, this is not a problem.

Some of my favourite food and drink spots located within a 10 minute walk of the hotel include Thai restaurants Chat Thai and Porkfat, Cantonese restaurant Steam King, modern Australian restaurant Longshore, Malaysian restaurant Ho Jiak, ramen spot Gumshara, and Japanese cafe and coffee specialists Edition Coffee Roasters.

For a nearby drink, check out Batch Brewing Company’s Darling Harbour bar, cocktail bar Banchō, and Italian wine bar, Bar Morris. All less than a 10 minute walk from the hotel.
