We've stayed in Sydney many times and know how important location which is why we choose the Establishment this time around. In addition, we also planned to dine at the Est. restaurant, arguably the best in Sydney and we'd also been impressed by the hotel bar during a previous weekend in Sydney. This time around we were travelling with our... More

This is a nice alternative to the five stars in the area. The price is very good (actually excellent) and the interiors are trendy and don't disappoint (a nice room feature was the remote control scene/mood lighting). The service was very good, friendly. The staff were appropriately invisible and visible. The bars were nice. The main bar seemed to be... More

Stayed at the Establishment from Christmas Eve for 4 nights with my wife. This boutique hotel is fantastic. There is a definite "cool" vibe and the staff are very friendly and helpful (not snobby at all). If you are looking for a quieter room, simply ask to stay away from the club or go during the week. I would definitely... More

We arrived early in the monring after a very long flight, and we loved the room. It was lovely, spacious and great design. However once we went to bed, there was so much noise, it felt like our bed was standing in the middle of a very busy bar. Also the neighbours kept slemming the doors and were very noisy,... More

The Establishment is a perfect hotel. Though there are no spa's, pool's, etc.. the design and creativity is five star, and the architecture is amazing. With two kinds of rooms and two kinds of penthouses, you're sure to have a perfect stay here. This is a top-notch security hotel, where you'll need your key for the hotel entrance, to operate...

Very chic, boutique hotel. Exactly the thing if you are after something different from the Marriots of the world - which are fine but tend to look the same everywhere you go. The rooms are modern, minimailst but comfortable. Loved the bathroom which had a folding blind separating the bath from the bedroom. This was great as after a long... More
