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.

There's nothing I can say that the previous reviews haven't already said...pretty spot on. I'd rather give this place a 3.5/5, but it's not really a 4/5. Good: Location Neighborhood Reception Public transportation options Walkability Average: Room size & functionality Bad: Wake-up call (we didn't get it) No clock in the room Nothing major, unless I want to be nit-picky...

Hotel in general met my expectations. Room was small, but fully functional. Bathroom ok - but below my expectations. View from the hotel window - disappointing. I needed to wait for my room for several hours, even I let the hotel management know in advance that I will arrive earlier. It looked that they didn't pay any attention to that.... More

It is not often that I go out of my way to write a review but I really felt I have to share my experiences of this place. The Kirketon really is a little gem of a hotel. Quite unassuming from the outside but as soon as you step through the door it has a wonderful feel to it and... More

The hotel is located not far from station and bus stop, plenty of cafes around the area. The room is quite nice and clean. The staff is nice and friendly. You could walk to oxford street or other major attraction.

Dear Csl R, Indeed, it is a mere 5 minute walk to kings cross station, to take a train where ever you like and the same distance for a bus to popular Bondi Junction. Thanks for sharing your experience with us, and hope to see you again! Warmest regards The Kirketon More

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

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.
