Interaction with Guests

I am in Sydney 9-10 months of the year and almost always meet guests for check in to explain transport options, potential tourist activities, and local hangouts. If I am out of town, a colleague will usually meet for check in.
After check in, I tend not to see most guests again, but I am on call any time for help, problem solving or local suggestions.

The Neighborhood

Located on the popular Crown Street, surrounded by loads of cafe's, bars and stores in the inner city village-like suburb of Surry Hills. This is very centrally located to most tourist activities and local hotspots, only a short walk to downtown.
3-5 minutes walk to Hyde Park.
5-10 minutes walk to Chinatown, Darling Harbour.
20-25 minutes walk to Circular Quay, Opera House, etc.
Located 1 block off the famous gay strip known as Oxford Street. It's fairly quiet inside the studio considering how close it is to nightlife options.

Getting Around

Very centrally located within walking distance to most tourist attractions. Lots of public transport options nearby including buses, trains, taxi, and trams.
From the airport you can get to the studio by train, shuttle bus or taxi:
1) Train costs about $17 per person one-way and takes about 15-20 minutes to "Museum" station on the same train line, followed by a 5 minute walk up Oxford Street.
2) Shuttle bus costs about $14 per person one-way and needs to be reserved at least 48 hours in advance on the website "(URL HIDDEN) and select the stop "city crown motel" which is only 2 small city blocks from the studio.
3) Taxi takes about 20 minutes and costs between $45-$65 depending on traffic.

Other Things to Note

Sydney is a very safe city and there are no security or safety concerns. However the studio has double security doors downstairs and a secure elevator. This studio is a great location to enjoy some nightlife, which is safe even for a woman by herself at night.
