An easy walk to the botanical garden, Opera House, and tons of great restaurants on the hotel's block and surrounding blocks. Located in a quiet neighborhood on a quiet street. Would definitely stay again when in Sydney.

Hotel Challis is a gorgeous accomodation right in Potts Point with plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. Only 10 minutes stroll to the train, or a casual walk to Art Gallery and the Harbour. Rooms are clean and tidy at a reasonable price.More

Hi, According to the law and regulations in Australia, smoking is strictly prohibited in most of the public places. Smoking is not allowed at the balcony. Heavy fines apply for violating these rules.
