Budget room for 3, v small but we were only sleeping there so didn't really care about size. Free wifi everywhere in hotel with fast connection and no noise at all from busy highway outside. Supermarket, Kings Cross station and restaurants within 5 min walk. Would recommend if you're not too bothered about size of room!

Arrival at the hotel early morning after a long trip from UK. Was expecting to leave luggage in the store but unexpectedly we were able to check in. Pull out bed and double bed. Bathroom reasonable size. No plug for bath. Took a while for the hot water to come through. Toilet stained. Headed down into the city via one...

Very nice rooms not far from central. Good buses and train stations. Cleans start cleaning to early in the morning and you could hear them banging around out the front door. Nice and help to check in early if there is a room available.

One night stay in a 4 bed room on arrival on Sydney. Reception allowed us to have our room immediately despite check in later in the day. Were very grateful for this after a long flight. Room clean and tidy. Great location. Would recommend as a base.

Personally, I rate 6/10 for overall hotel.Location is great, just few minutes away from Kings Cross night life! It's very economical and it's very close to the city attraction. For the price is more than ok.

Stayed here for 2 nights over the Mardi Gra weekend. Rooms was clean and comfortable and I was surprised we had a perfect view of Harbour Bridge & Opera House. Even more surprising; it was quiet!! No slamming doors all night. Not a place to stay if you're looking for a luxury getaway, but if you're just looking for a...

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
