The hotel is terrific and the staff lovely and welcoming. But the food! I had room service both nights - the fish and chips were excellent but the Thai was outstanding. I regularly visit Sydney but will stay at the Establishment much more, if only for the quality of the food.

The hotel was a bit hard to find adding to the overall uniqueness of the property. As we arrived we were greeted and our bags were whisked from the taxi! The staff was so very helpful! The room was large, modern, and the bed was very comfortable. It was a Monday so the restaurants were closed but they offered a... More

Justin, we love you. Drinks delivered in no time, friendly staff, Bvlgari items, iPad, late checkout. Great mini bar items. What more can you ask for really. Perfect romantic Friday night venue. We come back time and time again. Highly recommend.

We loved this boutique hotel. The rooms are sensational as well as the bathrooms. Very sleek and modern. The staff at reception were always very helpful and friendly. As guests of the hotel we were able to get a booking next door at Mr Wong which was absolutely fabulous as well. So we didn't have to line up outside to... More

Decided to stay at the Establishment as it was a convenient choice due to catching up with friends at Hemisphere on the night. The hotel itself is a little hard to find down the alleyway and drop off bags, but the staff are eager to help. I had sorted parking with the hotel which was very handy. The hotel is... More

We've stayed at Establishment three times. It is truly a great hotel but the noise from the surrounding clubs is hard to take. We thought we'd try different room locations but always the same. It spoils what would otherwise be a perfect hotel.

I liked the establishment, really excellent rooms, great bathroom, big comfy bed and well appointed room. Each room comes with its own iPad and Apple TV along with its free wifi. The hotel is above a bar/nightclub complex so even though I was on the 4th floor you could still hear the noise from downstairs. I would qualify and say... More

Nice hotel , clean , friendly staff. Advised upon check out extra charge for payment by any type of card - why ? Surely it must cost more to handle and bank cash so I think this is greedy to pass visa charges onto its clients , payment by card is both convenient and cost effective for the hotel. Also... More

Stayed overnight at The Establishment in a studio room and it was very spacious. Bed is very comfortable and the added bonus of an iPad in your room is very helpful. Great shower and bathroom facilities. Staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble. The only negative I would say is that the shower is poorly designed with window walls... More

THe hotel had character but lacked usability. For example the mirror in the bathroom was not over the sink but in the middle of two sinks. makes shaving complicated. The shower was great except there was no way to use it without flooding the floor outside the shower. I had to put down all the towels. My friend in another... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
