Capella Sydney

The Capella Sydney offers a unique blend of contemporary design and old-world charm. Located in Sydney's historic district, this 5-star hotel provides a convenient base for exploring the city's iconic landmarks and attractions. The hotel's guest rooms and suites are elegantly furnished. There are also floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of the city skyline or the harbor. Besides, each room has modern amenities, including free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and espresso machines. The hotel's restaurant serves modern Australian cuisine, focusing on locally sourced ingredients. Guests can also unwind in the hotel's spa. This hotel is an ideal destination for discerning travelers seeking a relaxing stay in the heart of Sydney.


Built in the 1900s by architect George McRae, Capella Sydney offers a great experience in the middle of Sydney. This five-star hotel sits between the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbor Bridge – two iconic Sydney attractions. This hotel also provides guests with a view of Sydney's skyline and harbor and is part of the Capella Hotels and Resorts.

Moreover, the grand hotel lobby will transport you to an elegant world. It's also impossible to resist the warm and welcoming interior. This blends modern style with classical luxury. Besides, no exception is made for the hotel's suites and rooms. They are all designed with comfort in mind.

The hotel also has several wellness facilities. These include a heated outdoor pool and fitness center. This oasis also offers various relaxing and rejuvenating treatments. If you want a massage, facial, or body treatment at the spa, they will help you to feel your best. The hotel is also in Australia's port city. Therefore, it offers guests a truly unique experience.

At the heart of the property, an open-air foyer will be showcasing a magnificent green wall standing seven meters tall. This extraordinary living artwork will be adorned with almost 70 native plant species, and complementing its natural beauty, a one-of-a-kind kinetic sculpture by Studio Drift, an Amsterdam-based art studio, will be prominently displayed.


Capella Sydney has a great location. It sits near some of Sydney's top attractions, such as the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Circular Quay is also near the hotel. This makes it convenient to visit other parts of the city. There are also regular ferries to Manly Beach and Bondi.


The commitment of the local storytellers is evident throughout. Australia has a reputation for being reticent to promote its rich history and culture. Capella Sydney is a testament to this reluctance. It weaves local art and history into the hotel.

Moreover, they serve a cocktail named Echoes of Eternity at the evening's "welcome ceremony." This is to celebrate a Sydney-based cold brew liqueur produced by Sydney coffee roaster and distiller Mr. Black. The cocktail's name is a reference to Sydney folk hero Arthur Stace. From the 1930s until today, he wrote "Eternity" all over the city's pavements.

The wall in the dining room also has a replica of one of Francis Fowkes' earliest maps. It serves as an exhibition for the archaeological findings from excavations under the building. However, Judy Watson's paintings that lead from the entry to the desk are the most stunning of all these references. The paintings depict a palimpsest. In addition, it has artifacts such as spears and woven bags on maps from the colonial era.

Rooms and Suites

Capella Sydney offers 192 guest rooms and suits. They come with stylish furnishings and modern amenities. These include air conditioning and flat-screen televisions. Moreover, the large windows provide breathtaking views of the harbor or the city. There are also ground-level food and beverage offerings.

The hotel suites also offer a unique experience. The Capella Suite is the height of luxury. It offers guests a spacious dining area and living room with lovely harbor views. It also comes with a fully-equipped, modern kitchen.

Due to the roof extension, all the suites have large windows. However, the majority of rooms only offer views of surrounding cities. Standard rooms have original windows. These are more than enough but not massive.

BAR Studios is a Melbourne-based firm that also has offices in Madrid. They designed the interiors of the hotel. It is of superior quality fittings and finishes. It also celebrates Australian wool, stone, and wood. The eclectic additions, such as 1960s-style chandeliers, offset any monotony. Besides, the bathrooms have separate tubs and beds with Frette Italian linen. Simone Haag curated all the furnishings and accessories. She is an interior stylist based in Melbourne.


The dining experience at Capella Sydney has been rated as one of its highlights. The hotel's signature restaurant serves delicious, modern Australian food. Menu items include fresh seafood and meats sourced locally. There are also in-season vegetables. A selection of Australian wines and other international varieties complement the restaurant's menu.

Moreover, the Mcrae Bar is a great place to enjoy a relaxed meal and afternoon tea. The Bar's cozy ambiance and cocktail menu make it the ideal place to relax after exploring the city. Besides, its terrace offers excellent views of the city.


Auriga on the third floor is only open to hotel guests. The spa uses Synthesis Organics products, a skincare line based in Byron Bay made from plants. The spaces are also calm and minimalist. They use natural materials. They're also based on the theme of lunar cycles. Particular attention should be paid to the treatment rooms, which feature the light wells listed as heritage on the roof. Moreover, native plant scrubs, peels, and masks are used in the treatments.

The "Connect to Country" exhibit features hot stones collected with the permission of Indigenous elders in far-flung parts of Australia. These include Mookaite from Western Australia, Kakadu from Northern Territory, Dreamtime, and Australian black marble from Pilbara. The ground floor also has an indoor pool and gym in what was once an art gallery for the government. Besides, vintage lanterns let in the daylight.


The Capella Sydney was once the Department of Education building. But, its curriculum doesn't cater to school-age children. Reawakening as Capella Sydney, the sandstone precinct stood quietly, and its golden façade formed an unassuming backdrop to the city. Most rooms can accommodate up to three children (extra beds for kids under twelve are free). You can also book babysitting on demand.


Setting a global benchmark for luxury accommodation, cuisine, and cultural immersion, the Capella Sydney is a hotel worth considering. This Edwardian baroque-style boutique hotel is situated in the city's heart and offers guests a unique experience. As you enter the hotel, you'll be greeted by a warm, friendly staff that will make you feel right at home. So whether you're in Sydney for business or pleasure, this is a great place to relax and unwind.
