1: Describe the service you experienced.
The check in service was easy and welcoming. This is a small hotel and the service is a little more personal than a big city chain so it’s nice. The hotel looks like an old Sydney Terrance house and when you walk in the reception is really pleasant.

2: Tell us how you liked the room
The room was up a couple of flights of stairs, which I found easy going. The room itself was bright and airy, I’d say recently renovated, it was small but efficient for a night in Sydney with a comfortable bed and nice bathroom. It has all the usual aspects of microwave, mini bar, TV and music system. All in all, a good room.

3: Talk about the location & amenities
The location A 5-minute walk from Kings Cross train station, and there are lots of little restaurant’s, pubs and coffee shops nearby. It was only a $10 cab fare to the SCG where I was going, so it’s very good to stay at and central to the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, it’s actually nicer than staying right in the city. There are no breakfast facilities but like I said there’s plenty of options close by.

4: Say what you liked best & least
I did like this hotel, and would defiantly stay here again. The location is great it’s reasonably priced and well worth staying here is your heading to the SCG or a night in Sydney.

Returned again to Medusa, and again had a great experience. We got great service, extremely clean rooms, and all the things you want from a boutique hotel. They keep ticking all the boxes …. thanks …. and will see you again soon!

I booked a Deluxe Double Room.

The rooms are clean & comfortable and feature a sink, fridge, microwave, cutlery and spacious bath/shower.

The hotel is conveniently located within Darlinghurst and is in walking distance of many galleries, restaurants, cafes and bars.

The free fruit and pastries in the lobby and complimentary chocolates in the room were a nice touch.

Would definitely stay here again

I needed a hotel close to St.Vincents Hospital and by luck found the Medusa. I had a room upstairs for a couple of days but needed to be at ground level when my wife was discharged from hospital. Luke shuffled reservations around and we moved to 202. The rooms are compact, but spotless and I never heard any noise from outside or other guests. The Classical music playing upon arrival was a lovely touch. The kitchenette is ideal for snacks and coffee. Very comfortable bed and windows that open, allowing fresh air in at night, was wonderful. A short walk to almost unlimited restaurants. I am not partial to the big name city hotels with no soul, I would definitely stay at this lovely little property again. I considered the rates most reasonable. Top marks to Luke, he absolutely went out of his way to provide help and support.

The first word that springs to mind is "cute". Lovely boutique hotel close to Oxford St and the Cross. Spotless rooms with great amenities and quality fittings. The management are a delight and the peaceful and quiet atmosphere is delicious. Free and reliable WIFI. Cute bathroom with a great big bath, plenty of large fluffy towels and lovely toiletries. Comfy bed and a good, well equipped little kitchenette set up for preparing meals and snacks. Quiet courtyard with a soothing water feature. A top spot to chill out and relax with all the action spots and a zillion restaurants and cafes at the the doorstep. I will most definitely return here on my future excursions to Sydney.
