I was only staying in Sydney one night and only literally just to sleep, so I was not looking for anywhere fancy but wanted to stay somewhere central and this hotel does the job. It was less than $200 per night which was my budget. Located on the CBD end of Oxford St so close to both Paddington and the... More

We stayed for one night in this hotel, but unfortunately there won't be more. Parking was a real problem. The hotel's car park was full even though we tried multiple times during the day. Finding parking in the area is a huge challenge as parking is highly restricted. We ended up having to walk a fair distance with all our... More

A small and cosy hotel with a fantastic location in Paddington, Sydney. The bus stop was just 40 m outside the hotel that could take you anywhere. The rooms were indeed quite small but perfect for a short term visit. A good internet connection in all the rooms. If you are interested of exploring Sydney and won't spend much time... More

We stayed here in January 2015 and were happy with the hotel. We were able to check in early and as we were taking the last space in their on site carpark one of the duty managers helped direct us into the very squeezy spot! The room was not huge but it did the job. It had a small balcony... More

This hotel is located on an interesting street. It has an interior garden where you can sit and read. It's easy to walk to the botanical gardens and harbor or there's a convenient bus. The front desk staff are extremely helpful with directions. Rooms are small but had everything I needed.

The location is great! lots to see and do within walking distance of the hotel but the hotel itself left me a little disappointed and here's why. It is weary and needs some attention...It was only on inspection of the 3rd room that is was close to being an acceptable place to stay. The first room had a REALLY bad... More

I accidentally book my accomodation for the wrong weekend and when I arrived at my original hotel I discovered this and that they were fully booked. I found the Arts Hotel at the last minute and booked online. I arrived 30 minutes later and they were all ready for me. Rooms are basic but clean and tidy and surprisingly quiet... More

Tired of spending your trips in large international class hotels, try the Arts Hotel on one of Sydney's most iconic streets. No such thing as 2 pm check-in, if you arrive on an early morning flight your room is immediately put at your disposal, with no questions asked. Breakfast is simple but excellent value and the hotel has a secluded... More

Close to the city, friendly staff, and a neat tidy room - couldn't have asked for better for a weekend away with my mom. Twin room - comfortable beds - huge fluffy white towels. Double glazing kept the worst of the street noise out of the room. Pub next door had great food, fast. Parking under the building was a... More

I thought this hotel was ideally suited for getting around good bus routes to circular key and bondi. The rooms were clean and I was in a garden room so very little noise. It has no frills but the bed was comfortable. Tea and coffee provided and a fridge in the room as well. Breakfast was extra $16 buffet lots... More
