I have stayed at Kirketon a number of times, and have always really enjoyed it. The rooms are modern, and funky, with big bathrooms, comfy beds, and ample cupboard space. The hallways are dark and mysterious, creating a unique vibe to the whole place. Plus, free Wi-FI! Whats more is the location. Its right in the heart of Kings Cross,... More

This hotel is in a great location - we walked to Darling Harbour, all through Kings Cross and up to Oxford St. But I believe the best thing about it is it's amazing bar.

As others have commented, the rooms are not spacious. But we found it was completely adequate for 2 people with 2 large suitcases. The room was arranged well enough and had the proper amenities for us to find a place for everything and still move around during our 6 night stay. Positives: Fabulous location in King's Cross. Free wi-fi. Friendly... More

First off, the hotel room was probably the smallest I've seen in all my travels in Australia. But don't let that dismay you. The hotel is great. There is free wi-fi, the look of the hotel is beautiful and "boutique"-style, and they have an amazing bar. The bathroom was pleasant and the shower was spacious. But really, it comes down... More

the rooms is really on the small side, standard room's bed are too tiny. windows open out to nothing. location is ok but not perfect. decor is up to each individual's taste, but i'm not a big fan of the heavy bygone era Audrey Hepburn style use of black and dark colours, but that's just me. it's just a bit...

Dear Rich8rd, Thank you for reviewing the Kirketon Hotel, we truly appreciate our guest’s feedback.

I was in Darlinghurst for Pinup Doll Australia Sydney heats - I was held up in traffic and running hideously late. Luke was amazing, so welcoming and helpful, I could not have asked for more!

The Kirketon is located in Darlinghurst road, which is surrounded with great restaurants and bars, also not far from Crown St, which has more great restaurants and bars. The reason we like this location is that you are not around all the touristy restaurants etc.. We came over for work and to see Madam Butterfly on the water which was... More

In the last 12months I have stayed at the Kirketon many times when visiting Sydney. This is by far my favourite hotel. I love the funky decor & quirky touches such as Audrey Hepburn movies playing in the hallways & vintage lamps allowing for mellow lighting. The standard rooms are small but well appointed with great wardrobe space allowing for... More

Had the in-laws in town so took the opportunity to lock in a night in the Cross. With the Kirketon just round the corner it allowed us to dip in, but more importantly head back to what is a very nice hotel for a bit of class.
