Blue Bikes

Starting from October, BLUE, A Taj Hotel, Sydney has an exciting new way to enjoy Sydney's beautiful harbour foreshore. It's BLUE bikes! Well, they are actually gold, in keeping with Taj's flagship colour scheme. And they are for the exclusive use of our guests at BLUE Sydney to ride around Woolloomooloo and its stunning surrounds during the glorious Spring Summer months.

Two vintage style "fixie" bikes will be located at the front of the hotel and can be booked at reception. You can also talk to our fabulous staff about packing a picnic lunch to take with you on your travels. We're quite sure that we are the only hotel in Sydney to offer this gorgeous, very "hipster" service. Another cool factor at BLUE, Sydney's coolest hotel.

Blue Refurbishment

Guests staying at BLUE, A Taj Hotel, Sydney will notice that our iconic property has had a subtle makeover, designed to refresh its cool urban décor just in time for Spring. In the unique warehouse style hallways, a new custom-designed carpet featuring an indigenous-inspired aquatic motif has been introduced, echoing the hotel's watery harbour setting.

Each of our 100 Guest Rooms, including 36 stunning Loft Suites, has been refurbished with chic flaxen carpet and new finishes and touches. The rooms retain the authenticity and charm of their wonderful, historic wharf setting whilst providing the latest in modern luxury, with views of either the eclectic Woolloomooloo Bay Village or the sensational Sydney Harbour foreshores.
