I stayed at this hotel with my mother for 5 nights. From the moment we walked up to the front door, the hospitality was exceptional. We arrived from our very long trip in the morning and we were lucky to have a room available. Jesse and Luke were super nice with any of our needs and guided us well in organizing our days. The room was super clean - room isn't super big but is sufficient and the bathroom was spacious with a great shower. The room temp was well adjusted ( as it was a hot week in Sydney). We learned how to take the train (from Kings cross, a 5 min walk) to circular quay which was convenient once we learned how to go. Sydney has a lot of hills and with the heat, the train was a good way to avoid walking uphill. There are lots of restaurants in this area. There is a flight of stairs to enter the hotel, however they brought our luggage in and out so no worries! Hotel also offers free wifi which was very easy to utilize.

I really liked staying at the Medusa. The building is beautiful. The rooms are quirky; fairly simple but with all the conveniences (including mini-kitchen). The staff were great - really welcoming and no-nonsense - and the surrounding area is so much more 'Sydney' than when you stay in one of the bigger hotels in the CBD. Recommended.

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.
