Jesse & Luke always look after us with five star service.My husband is frail & not only are we greeted at the door with a welcoming smile but a room is always found on the first floor & our bags are seamlessly transported to the room.We have read that the rooms are in need of a little TLC but we have found the beds to be really comfortable(always sleep well) & the rooms neat & tidy.We live 2 1/2 hours away & Jesse arranges for us to park our car 100 metres away in a secure carwash for just $38!
Sydney would be lacking without cosy enclaves like the Medusa.

Room Tip: The ground floor suite was our favourite

I stay at the Medusa whenever I come to Sydney. The building is an old school Victorian terrace, but the rooms are very sleek and modern (also very spacious). The real reason I keep going back is the staff. So helpful and polite, they really go out of their way to make you feel at home in the area. Top marks!

I've stayed at this gorgeous hotel a few times now, and have never been disappointed. Located in on leafy Darlinghurst Road in a Victorian town house, the pays homage to the antique building, while updating it with cosmopolitan European styling.
I've stayed in different rooms and they have always been immaculate, this trip was no exception.
The staff are fabulous, Jesse was always very helpful and recommended perfect places for breakfast and dinner, clearly knowing his way around the area and all the best places. Nothing was ever too much bother and I left feeling very pampered.

I arrived early but Luke had a room available already. Luke is very friendly, able to read his guests well and engage with them immediately. He is very down to earth and shares much of himself with his guests. Another staff member has a cat that he brings into work that roams around the hallways that I was delighted to find rolling begging for pats.

The rooms feel more like a grand old house than a hotel - perhaps not to everyone's taste, they are slightly pokey and the design is getting slightly out of date in it's years but their customer service and attention to detail is what keeps the hotel at capacity.

The staff truly love their jobs and are proud of the hotel. I've never seen someone legitimately seem so satisfied and eager to greet and help their guests as Luke. Nothing felt like it was a bother.

We stayed here to be close to the Allianz Stadium for Rugby 7s. A great place in a great location. Highly recommended if you want somewhere with great access to restaurants and bars. Also close to bottle shop and small well stocked supermarket.
