This hotel is in the Kings Cross area which is a long walk from the main Quay, however there is a regular bus service. The rooms are very small and do not have any twin rooms. Otherwise it was very clean and the staff were excellent, helpful & friendly. Breakfast is not served in the hotel but in a cafe... More

Boutique in this case means small rooms which haven't been renovated, seemingly since the hotel was built. Bathroom tiny with smelly drains. Carpet old and dirty. Location good and bed comfortable but overall poor value for money.

Dear Neville G, Thank you writing a review about your stay at the Kirketon. We apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced.

We stayed at the Kirketon for 2 night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel staff where greet and offered helpful advise. The hotel is well positioned only 5 minutes away from the heart of the city. Funky and fun coffee shops and bars all located nearby. Great place to stay for business or pleasure.

I stayed here for 4nights. Cannot fault this place. The staff should give training to anyone interested in working in the hospitality industry...they are superb. Friendly, knowledgeable, personable and efficient....nothing is too much trouble. Location wise this hotel is perfect. 5 mins walk to kings cross station, or a 25 minute walk into the city. I used the gym which... More

For quick overnight stays, out of the city consider Kirketon Darlinghurst. I stay here when I'm working around the Paddington area, super convenient. The team are friendly and the beds comfortable. And I recommend Fu Manchu alongside uf you're looking for a quick bite after a day of business.

Dear Ann-Maree M, It was a pleasure reading your review. Our location is indeed very central and close to Paddington so we are glad that you enjoyed that. Thank you for your feedback on the team and beds and we agree, the food at Fu Manchu is super nice! See you during your next trip! The Kirketon Team More

Our stay at the Kirketon was sound, the rooms very small and in need of some maintenance, shower head looked snapped (although still worked) but when you draw the shower curtains it is pitch black (dark red shower curtains?). On the plus side the staff were really nice (they took our luggage up for us), the rooms were clean and... More

If you're looking for a conveniently placed, affordable hotel in Sydney the Kirketon should be considered. Located on the border of Kings Cross and Darlinghurst, the Kirketon is also a short walk to Oxford street and a quick train ride ($4 one way) to the sites at Circular Quay and the CBD. In a not too busy street surrounded by... More

I just spent my 2nd night in a month at this hotel, and I wouldn't hesitate to return in future. They don't pretend to be some 5 star luxury hotel, and if you're looking for a pool, bars and restaurants, room service, concierge etc. etc. you will need to go somewhere else. The things the Kirketon does offer are: fabulous... More
