9 night stay - Clean well serviced room and super comfortable beds. Crisp white sheets with a mattress cover like sleeping on a cloud. No fussy bed covers just a crisp soft white quilt. Beds are made every day. Great rain head shower and clean line design. Rooms are tight and the view pretty non existent but you don't stay... More

I just spent my 2nd night in a month at this hotel, and I wouldn't hesitate to return in future. They don't pretend to be some 5 star luxury hotel, and if you're looking for a pool, bars and restaurants, room service, concierge etc. etc. you will need to go somewhere else. The things the Kirketon does offer are: fabulous... More

A cool 'underground' feel. I would suggest for a short stay as rooms are small (not a bad thing). I loved my room. The bed was SO comfortable and the awesome decor and big mirrors are very unique and stylish. The 70s bathrooms and awesome and give the room character. The corridors are eery and make you feel inner-worldly. I... More

Nice & friendly staff, good location in Darlinghurst. The rooms would benefit from a little facelift, furniture & bathroom looked quite used. Cool bar for evening drinks but no breakfast served at hotel. Instead I was handed a voucher for a nearby café, which was actually quite nice.

Hotel staffs help us for big luggage, after some welcome drink, we checked in a room on 3th floor. It was clean. Hotel is in the central, it is very convenient to access tourist place. Staffs are friendly with us and help us all way we did.

Hotel in general met my expectations. Room was small, but fully functional. Bathroom ok - but below my expectations. View from the hotel window - disappointing.
