Stayed for 2 nights in an Establishment Room. Were greeted warmly and had a smooth check in with Richard. Lovely spacious room, great rain shower and bathroom. Great locale. Dined at Est which was superb. Great breakfast in the atrium also. Can't wait to stay again.

In the middle of the CBD, this hotel is a perfect place to mix business with pleasure. The studio room was large with an excellent bathroom. Reception staff were informative and friendly. Housekeeping was efficient. There are numerous bars and restaurants around the hotel. Dined in Est and Sushi e (see separate reviews) which are part of the same complex... More

We enjoyed 90 per cent of our stay - thought it was an interesting place in a great location. But at 7am we had a cleaner / service staff begin to enter our room without knocking first and then proceed to ask us from the other side of the door if we'd just checked in! Being in various states of... More

Establishment Hotel is a gem!! Sited in a converted warehouse with many of the original featues retained, it has charm, atmosphere, exceptional service and very generous well equiped rooms. It's location is within easy walking to lots of attractions, but one of it's best attributes is the Palmer & Co Bar in the former cellar - cocktails to die for!... More

Had a lovely one night stay for a friend's 40th. Great location close to circular quay & easy walking distance to shops etc. Great bars & restaurants in the complex - we loved Mr Wongs for lunch and the bar on the lower ground level was fabulous for post party cocktails. Only complaint would be noise in the room -... More

My wife won a night at this hotel as part of a raffle prize. The staff are at the top of the game, the room was very comfortable. While the lighting is adjustable we would have liked to be able to set it brighter some of the time. Parking and finding the entrance is not easy. The best option is... More

I needed a night where i could just indulge! I made a late reservation on booking.com at 4.30 in the afternoon and i rocked up an hour later. The hotel has 1 parking spot they allocate so id suggest booking this in advance. Its $50. Its no valet though. I parked down the alley way to unload my bags and... More

Beautiful hotel, great location. A great shame about the extremely paper thin walls..... Both nights were kept wide awake until early morning from hearing absolutely everything in the next room. Complained to the front desk each night, this didn't help. Such a shame, would have been a great experience however this wasn't so great for us...

This is a lovely little hotel with a great location in the Sydney CBD, conveniently attached to a bunch of restaurants and bars owned by the same group. Staff are fantastic, very helpful and friendly. Everyone has a smile on their face which makes such a difference. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with a great rain shower. The gym is... More

This was a small business function, entertaining a few clients after work. A large, generally open bar, provides lots of stand up space for chatting with guests. It is very popular and crowded when we visited. Service was not great, with inadequate staff numbers, noticeably reducing as the clientele thinned out. We consistently though they were about two staff short... More
