Spent one Saturday night there for our wedding anniversary and it would have to be the best all round service we've ever received. The room was great but it was the exceptional staff the made the stay so wonderful. The front desk couldn't be more informative and helpful, even getting us on the door for Pasha at the Ivy. We...

The Bulgavi spa products, spacious rooms with designer furnishings and pride of place bed make this the perfect hotel for an affair. High ceilings, sound proofing, you quickly forget you are in the downtown centre of Sydney. What extra I spend on the room I more than save on taxis and by completely avoiding the Sydney traffic debacle - skipping... More

Stumbled across this hotel website, which is a lot easier than stumbling across the hotel itself. Behind a single big black door in a very old Sydney back lane way, this is just an amazing hotel. The welcome was brilliant, the foyers a great rework of what is a very solid, old building full of interesting lighting. The room itself... More

I recently attended a technology breakfast event at the Establishment Hotel, held in the main ballroom. The room hosted over 150 guests and I really appreciate the way the hall was setup. The place looked spacious and the multimedia systems were perfectly tuned with 2 large screens to display the presentations! The breakfast was sumptuous and the guests were very... More

This is a really good way to experience Sydney from a charming and funky room. Staff at Merivale / the front desk will organise entry to their best restaurants and bars that are notoriously difficult, such as Mr Wong. The room itself is a hideaway that has a warm and sultry feel. I really enjoyed staying here!

After 3 stays we now wouldn't stay anywhere else when in Sydney, there is so much on offer right under the one roof from bars to 5* restaurants. The rooms themselves are very cool and spacious with great bathrooms, surprisingly though they only have queen beds but they are very comfy. We love that we can have a weekend break... More

Excellant venue in the heart of the city, Great atmosphere and friendly crowd. One of the great places to catch up with friends, have a drink and enjoy the atmosphere. Highly recommended as a way to experience the Sydney nightlife.

I took my girlfriend to Sydney (we are from Melbourne) to see the lion king and we had the most magical time at the hotel and in the various establishments within. The room was gorgeous and huge with a cool cool feel to it. The Palmer and co. Bar was amazing, pricy, but amazing. The hotel desk can organize tables... More

Booked directly on their website, easy. Got a return email from the concierge. Got fantastic help from both Simon and Adrianne in helping to organise airport pick up, restaurant booking and also a bottle of bubbles in our room on arrival... All good, picked up at the airport great. At reception all good, we were shown to our room 42,... More
