Be Central , Be Sydney- Tank Stream Hotel
As a solo traveller, there are certain things that matter to me when it comes to accommodation. The location is one of my main motive choosing a hotel . I like to be centrally located with lots of shops , restaurants, attractions ,a vibrant scene with interesting people.
When I venture out in the world, I like to mingle with the locals to learn cultural differences , perhaps know about the best coffee house or learn a piece of history only the locals know. It makes my stay a unique experience.
Cleansiness & feeling safe , especially travelling solo, tops the same ranking as location. Add a yummy breakfast and it becomes a definite perk . Tank Stream Hotel has provided all this for me.
As in any service industry , a hotel serves to be polite, available and helpful. The occasional , how may I help you or thank you or have a good day , are standard procedures in every hotel I have been too.
Yet , Tank Stream Hotel in Sydney Australia is different; a new hidden gem pushing its way on the front stage. Tank Stream Hotel not only has a memorable name that grabs you like a hook but a personal service that becomes an added bonus.
I was very happy to hear and be part of a hotel that embraces solo travellers ; defined as either a single person or more recently , spouses wanting to venture out without their better half.
So , finally a hotel that welcomes solo travellers but most importantly, pays attention to us . Tank Stream Hotel clearly understands this is a new trend in the travel industry, finally someone is listening to us.
This attention is why the service is so personal , it is not the standard hotel ‘hello how may I help you Mrs. MIlano ?” but a warm invitation to a safe and welcoming place I felt was my home. The whole staff truly were looking out for me & this as a solo traveller is uniquely special , unlike any other hotels I have been to.
Tank Stream Hotel in Sydney Australia is centrally located so it is very easy to navigate around the city; stay central , it is always easier. It is walking distance to the main tourist attractions , Sydney Opera House, The Rocks ,The Harbour , restaurants and shops .
One of Tank Stream Hotel‘s charm is enhanced by its location in a very historical area of Sydney. It sits directly on top of an important piece of history on the first water supply in Sydney.
In 1788 Captain Arthur Philip sailed into the Harbour searching for a settlement site. What he had found was water flowing from the Sydney Harbour.Here is the beginning of a new colony that was established the, new European Australia. It has been said that this Tank Stream was main source of water and food for the Gadigal people , group of indigenous Australians. Signs of the life of the Gadipal people had been uncovered around the tank.
To get a better understanding on the this important history, there is a Tank Stream Heritage Walk you must take.There are 6 Footpath installations built from Alfred St to Park St to follow. 6 separates sites are installed on the city’s sidewalk to understand the history of the Tank Stream . Ask front desk at the hotel for assistance.
Chic and Urban
Tank Stream Hotel is a chic & urban hotel that has a modern yet minimalistic design that emulates a contemporary and open lifestyle. The room was comfortable, clean and I had the perfect view of downtown Sydney on the 13th floor. What more can a girl ask for.
This boutique style hotel that sits on a very historical part of the city will & has started a new history on their own.They are the first and only one embracing and accommodating to solo travellers . A trend that is shaping the travel industry and Tank Stream Hotel are the pioneers.
I enjoyed my stay at the Tank Stream Hotel because it felt like home. The staff were all so courteous, polite and helpful.A big thank you to to Mr Peter Hook, Mr Klaus Kinateder, front desk Katia and Fatih Atilgan you have all exceeded my expectations.
