I was surprised when I entered into the lobby. The hotel is quite hidden in a small road but once you pass the doors you enter in another world. Very exclusive and "raffiné". The rooms are soooooooo cozy. The bathroom is sooooo "oh my god" with Bulgary beauty products. I loved it. In the evening you find cookies on your... More

Great hotel, reasonably priced, just don't drink at the bar on a Friday or Sat night, it is packed with kids drunk and rude...otherwise rooms are good, good in room derive are excellent! Word of advice only stay with someone you know well, baths are in middle between room and bathrooms! They use Bulgari

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!
