The hotel was in a great location, near lots of bars and cafés. The hotel lobby was lovely and the staff were very friendly but our room was very small and the heating was difficult to control. The bathroom was freezing which wasn't great but we were visiting in the winter.

I loved my stay at the Kirketon. I would stay there again without doubt. Perfect location in the heart of action, clean and comfortable. Looking out the window to gorgeous London Plane trees made my stay very enjoyable. Thanks very much for a nice stay.

On an annual girls' weekend to Sydney we decided to give the Kirketon a try and we were so impressed that the this will most likely be our regular hotel from now on! We booked two of the standard rooms (double beds only) between 3 of us and even though they were on the small side, they felt cosy but... More

Just 50m from the infamous Coke sign in Kings Cross but away from the raucous, this is a funky little hotel. The service was friendly and overall the hotel is well fitted out. There is no lift so you need to be happy to get some exercise if you are on an upper level. The bedroom is average in size... More

I actually stayed at this hotel in October 2011 and still remember how wonderful the experience was. A stone's throw to King Cross and all the action this cozy boutique hotel symbolizes cool.

Stayed here on a friday night. The room was adequate, and reasonably well fitted out. Service was pretty good. Overall for the price it was not bad. But I found the double bed small and personally would pay a bit more to stay somewhere else in future.

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).
