We recently had a lovely little stay at the Kirketon hotel. We were in Sydney for a surprise birthday and I could not have picked a better location that was close to everything and walking distance to the restaurant I chose on Riley street. The staff were amazing and very helpful. We were surprised by the lovely cocktail bar at... More

A classic boutique hotel. Exceptional service. Close to the trains and easy to get around Sydney from this location. Plenty of restaurants nearby. A cosy room which was comfortable. Great recommendation for breakfast across the road and this was added to our account at a discounted rate. Well worth asking for a voucher at reception when checking in.

This is a budget hotel which is about a 10-15 Australian Dollar taxi ride away from the city - very easy to get a taxi from the hotel road. Staff are very nice and welcoming and free wifi is great! The mini bar is nicely stocked. However the rooms are a bit shabby, bedside tables chipped, things that should be... More

Great reception, helpful and friendly staff. Room and bed very comfortable. Location in Sydney hard to beat. Loved the neigbourhood with its shops and cafe's catering for daily needs of the locals and visitors. Our only complaint was a lack of wardrobe storage. Really enjoyed our stay.

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.
