There are already lots of reviews of this hotel on here, so I'll just give you my take. My room was a premium room on the first floor (2nd floor to us Americans). There is no elevator, but staff will gladly volunteer to take up your luggage for you if you need assistance. The size of my room was average... More

This hotel is in a great location so close to lots of cool restaurants and cafés. We had trouble getting the air conditioning to work but other then that it was great! Front desk staff were very helpful as well.

We were here for a week and what a staff. Anything you want, they provide. Love the rain shower and the beds are to die for. Plus I had both soft and firm pillows on the bed. Score! PS Have safes too!

Very cool quircky hotel. Staff very friendly and very comfortable bed. Only issue I had was gaining access by car as GPS didn't recognize darlinghurst road as one way. Very difficult to navigate when you are from another state.

My partner and I spent a great night at the Kirketon Hotel on Darlinghurst for his birthday. This sexy hotel is uniquely decorated with dark lighting and plenty or mirrors. The old movies playing on each landing were a quirky bonus. We had a fairly spacious superior room with a very cozy bed and clean bathroom. Located close enough to... More

I stayed at this boutique hotel for business on reccomendation from my friends. I wanted something that was personal and not in the CBD. On first appearance the lobby is quite chic, simple but chic. The staff were super freindly. I booked superior room and I was quite grateful that they had a room ready for me early (11am). That's... More

The front staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we were in is very tiny for two, and so is the bathroom. You can hear all the squeeks from the room above. I will not stay here again. This is all I care to say about this place.
