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

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

Loved the hotel, quirky in a good way. The lobby is a little hard to find, tucked away down an alley, but the bar opens onto George Street. We were well looked after and the staff were incredibly helpful, best I have experienced in years. But a lot of construction noise nearby made for sleepless nights.

We had our wedding on level 3 of the establishment, so we stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. We were chaperoned to the door after the wedding, our bags were waiting for us with a bottle of champagne. The halls smell like incense and are dim and quiet, like you're walking into a secret space. Our room had everything... More

We booked a car from the hotel to take us to and from the airport. Great experience & takes away all the hassle! With our massive amounts of luggage it was a lifesaver. Hotel entrance is tucked away in a side street but in a cool, 'secret hideaway' type way! The hotel is full of character and is for those... More

I stayed here on a 2 night work trip. The studio room is more than fine and mine (room 37?)had a view. Other rooms will not as they face the alleyway. The staff are super friendly and the while hotel has an intimate soothing atmosphere. It was pure luxury and so much better than a generic hotel for a work... More

Only those in the 'know' with know where to find this hidden gem in Sydney's CBD. We are very grateful for tripadvisor for helping us stumble across this great space to eat, sleep, rest and play. Tucked away in a narrow laneway, you could be forgiven for walking past the entrance to the hotel if you weren't looking for it... More
