Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Unique, bespoke, eclectic much like The Porter House over the road but better! Close to Central and World Square, short walk to Darling Harbour, reception is the bar which is quirky and fun checking in at peak times, staff are extremely polite and welcoming, drinks at the bar are a must, breakfast/dinner is in the bar area, the lifts are quick, hallways are narrow but beautifully decorated, better than a Sofitel, book the biggest room possible as you get a lounge area in addition to bed area, beds are like sleeping on a cloud, it's not a great view but I observed parts of Sydney I'd never seen before, no in room mini bar (you can order in) but plenty of tea, coffee maker etc., the bathroom has Soigne shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand cream which are devine plus a hair straighter and a massive showerhead. The only negative is the "$100 bond" which is debited to your credit card on check-in, I was not expecting a "$100 bond" I knew nothing about that, as I've said before, if I can afford to stay there, why insult me and make me pay a bond, the five star Sofitel doesn't and yes it takes allegedly "3-5 days" to disappear from your credit card and checking-out : your invoice isn't itemised which was a bit strange.

I found the Hotel Morris Sydney Handwritten Collection when looking for a hotel to stay in for a trip to Sydney.

The hotel was based in the heart of the city in Pitt Street in walking distance to both China Town/ World Square and also the city centre.

It is also really close to public transport to get to wherever you need to go within Sydney.

When finding the hotel I was a little confused initially as the entrance is also the entrance to the downstairs bar and restaurant.
The staff were very helpful and got me to walk in via a side entrance so I could also bring my bags in.

The hotel is adorable and really beautifully appointed. I loved the decor and warm feeling it had. When going up to the room I was expecting to walk into a much bigger room but I will admit the room was small.

Though being it was small it was decorated to create more space than I have ever had in this size room before. Both myself and my husband never felt squashed in, even with both our suitcases. The room was very comfortable, the bed felt nice and the bathroom and shower were again small but really well designed. We didn't have a great view but who's staying in Sydney to sit in your room looking out the window right?

The bar/restaurant downstairs was such a great addition with a gorgeous little continental breakfast which was added to our room each morning to start our day. The bar throughout the day and night definitely added a vibe to the place.

The staff were really welcoming and wonderful, they really went out of their way to ensure you had all you needed and were being looked after.

The hotel itself is somewhere I would definitely visit again as it was exactly what you need and at a good price. The location was definitely a really good bonus. The staff are definitely a great asset.

I have to thank the hotel for the flexibility of allowing me to check in early morning, instead of a 5 hr wait for normal check-in time. In so doing I lost my 2 stage special room upgrade though. My experience therefore relates to, I guess, to be their smallest room.
Firstly, I found the entrance hard to find as there is no signage under the verandah, ( but a huge sign can be seen from the other side of the road hanging down the facade.) One then enters via some steps, and then it mistakenly looks like a cafe, with a long bar on the right side. But half way down is the check in computer, that I guess also serves as a register for dining room /cafe operation.
Following a friendly check in I was allocated room 301 facing the street. I had some initial concern for possible street noise, but found it generally acceptable.
The room and bathroom decor was very nice, with the bed firm but comfortable. There is no wardrobe but a wall device with 2 coat hangers. Luggage has to be placed on the floor, which was somewhat difficult to open out with my medium size case, due to limited space around the bed. ( I can't imagine how a couple with two large suitcases could manage.)
Even though I stayed 2 nights the tea/coffee provided was not replenished, and the milk pods were located in the inoperable fridge ( I reported this on check out ).
Notwithstanding, I found the room quite comfortable, staff very friendly and helpful, the hotel very convenient for access from either Central Station ( 15 min walk ) and just over a block walk to the Chinatown Tram stop in George Street.

A new hotel in the Accor group. Previously a backpacker hotel, it has been transformed into boutique hotel opening 4 weeks prior to my stay. Located in central Sydney close to Central station and in easy reach to Sydney's attractions. No foyer, so checking in at the main bar / cafe is a little different. Very small rooms, but was upgraded to a Dante room which allowed extra space. Would suggest booking Dante (24 sq metre) or Grande (28 sq metre) rooms unless you're comfortable staying in compact accommodation. Friendly staff and great service, especially made welcome by duty manager Evangeline who went out of her way to make my visit memorable.

I’m a (fussy) Accor Diamond member and usually stay at the Sofitel in Sydney but this popped up and because it was close to Central station and I needed to use the train on this visit I thought I’d give it a try.

I’m so glad I booked this hotel, from the minute I walked in the door I knew I loved it. The staff are all so warm and engaging. The restaurant is sleek and very sexy.

I was upgraded to a stunning room. I was prepared for a small room (I was only there for a night) but my room was massive. Based on the quality of the refurbishment I’d say even a small room would be awesome and I’d be happy (think London size and you’ll get the idea)

I don’t usually eat breakfast but their simple spread looked so awesome I had to try it. And it was yummy.

I didn’t eat dinner but came through the restaurant and saw the diners and the food. The people are clearly the cool Sydney set and the food on their tables looked amazing. I’ll eat there next time for sure.

I loved this place so much I’ll absolutely stay here again. It’s very cool and would not be out of place down a lane way in Melbourne or in London or NY.

I didn’t know what to expect after reading the other reviews. I checked in on a Friday afternoon and felt like I was walking onto a movie set. It was somewhat busy with a cross section of people having afternoon drinks and I checked in at the bar with the “bartender” who gave me my room key. The elevators are just beside some booths at the back of the bar.

I had a king room which seemed small but efficiently laid out. I suspect the smaller rooms would seem very small.

The bed was VERY comfortable.

The location of the hotel is excellent — just steps from Central Station.

Would definitely stay here again (and I recommend having lunch or dinner or drinks downstairs…friendly and fun staff! ) Louis was particularly welcoming to me and my friends who ended up having drinks on the Friday night. He is a real asset to the property.

It should be a 4.5 review but you can’t do halves.

A lovely, small new hotel that was previously a backpackers. Nicely renovated (except for, perhaps, the heavy timber roof facade in the narrow hallway). Beds and pillows were comfy.

We also had a small supper in the restaurant which was very good and there is good selection of nice wines by the glass.

We were upgraded from a bambino to a king room (thank you!) however, when we opened the door I was surprised how small the room is….I wonder how small the bambino would be!

Also, we could clearly hear the people in the shower of the room across the hall which was a bit disconcerting.

For the price, there are better hotels.

First impressions of the hotel were good. Check in is in a suave, well decorated bar. Furnishings are modern and the rooms are clean. While small, they make great use of the space. The Nescafe machine in the room is a nice touch.
However it was probably the worst night's sleep in a hotel I've ever had. Our room was directly opposite the elevator (level 7, room 706) and it was loud all night. My earplugs couldn't block it out. Whenever the elevator stopped, there was a bang that would echo all the way down the shaft.
The bed was very firm, which could be a good thing depending on the person. One pillow was a brick in a pillowcase, the other was slightly more pliable.
The toilet leaked and refilled at random times during the night. The design of the bathroom was awkward, with the sink directly in front of the toilet. I think anyone taller than me (5'7") would find it hard to use.
If staying there, I would request a room well away from the elevator.

Would not recommend any room smaller than Morris King. The King Room in this hotel is about the small size room in other hotels. You need to do a side turn to get from the coffee machine to the bathroom. Interior design is beautiful, from lighting to the tiles, and the bed was comfortable, but that's about it.

You can hear whenever someone uses the bathroom above, all their shower noises. The King room is closest to the street and furthest from the elevators, so you hear some street sounds and other people's plumbing. Having a room closer to the elevators would be even more noisy at night. There are no views unfortunately, as the building is among other taller buildings.

The hotel is right across the street from a brothel, if that is the sightseeing you want to do.

Also unfortunate for a 1 night stay that one of the hotel staff decided to knock on my door in the morning and was about to enter for no reason and without permission, I was half naked.
I don't know of any other hotel that has someone open my door for housekeeping when it is only a 1 night stay. They also asked me when I was checking out, shouldn't the hotel know this? Who checks for housekeeping 1 hour before my check out time?

Would also comment that the breakfast is not a 4 star hotel breakfast, just very average continental.
Best part about this hotel is the interior decorations.

We stayed 2 nights at Hotel Morris and couldn't fault it. The staff are great and the room was spotless and very comfortable. The rooms are very nicely appointed with everything you need. I love that you enter straight into the restaurant/bar which was a great space to enjoy a drink or a meal. Location is excellent and just walking distance to the Pitt St Mall and the Capitol Theatre and Darling Harbour. We would definitely stay there again!
