We arrived early morning after our cruise. Alice on Reception was fantastic. She gave us great advice for breakfast, restaurants and markets close by. Even though check-in was later in the day, she rang us to say our room was ready at 10.30am. We stayed on the 2nd floor overlooking the street which we thought may be a bit noisy,... More

I was recommended the Kirketon hotel by a friend who lives in Sydney, he knows I like high standards and quality service, but not at a price that makes me wince and quietly weep when I hand over my card. The Kirketon excelled in standard and service. I stayed 3 nights at the start of November 2014. The hotel is... More

Dear Gareth P, We love your recognition of the great value the Kirketon represents, and for sharing all the parts that made your experience special. Just on our beds; all the Kirketon beds offer Micro Cloud bedding; so no matter what room style our guests choose; guest get that same comfort (glad to hear you loved the size too). Darlinghurst...

Stayed here for 1 night only while on a business trip, as all other hotels were fully booked. On entry from Darlinghurst Street the "lobby" layout felt very strange - like I just walked into a vampire bordello. Rooms are accessible via stairs only,and the rooms themselves are quite small. It's an older building renovated in quite modern tones. The... More

Excellent hotel in a perfect location. The service from Alice was first class and very helpful. Nothing was too much of a hassle for her. All staff acknowledged guests as they were passing through reception. The superior room was very well appointed and spacious, which is hard to find in most hotels. In a nutshell, I'd highly recommend The Kirketon... More

We stayed for a weekend in early October. Was well served by reception, who spent plenty of time assisting us to maximise a short visit. Nice room, and vibrant location - would go again. The bars onsite are expensive, but they are niche cocktail lounges so not for everyone anywat.

We stayed at The Kirketon Hotel in Darlinghurst (inner city of Sydney) for a wedding we were attending. The rooms although were on the small side, it gave us what we needed as we weren't in the rooms all that much as were attending a wedding. The staff were very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The Hotel was in... More

With an ambition to stay at every hotel in the 8Hotel portfolio, my second stop was The Kirketon. You couldn't get more peak inner-city Sydney - step out onto the street straight into Darlinghurst, wander through Kings Cross, hang out in Potts Point. The rooms may be a little tired, but the staff are super friendly and there's so much... More

Absolute gem of a hotel - great ambiance, friendly staff, stylish decor and a convenient location. A home away from home that's much better value than even some 5-star properties. Would definitely stay again!

I stayed at the Kirketon for 4 nights for a little vacation to Sydney. It was my first time in Sydney and had no idea where to stay and picked the Kirketon almost at random, and I couldn't have been luckier in my selection. Good location, very good cafés and bakeries in Darlinghurst and you can still conveniently walk to... More

A great location - we enjoyed walking to Surrey Hills, Paddington, and Potts point, plus fantastic restaurants and cafes nearby in Darlinghurst. Friendly staff but the room was very tired. We paid for a more expensive room - 'supreme'? - but it had no frills. The bed was ok, but the couch was very worn and the bathroom was not... More
