I booked two night during our stay in Sydney because my travel guide recommended that hotel. I must say it was a good recommendation. The hotel is good situated in Oxford street. Public transportation is just around the corner but it´s also a nice walk into the city center. We had a room with "garden view". It was very quite,... More

In the perfectly located Arts Hotel on Oxfordstreet in Sydney we booked a Room with Garden View. How disappointing to find out the room was on the first floor and all we could see was an opposite building. When you push your nose to the window glass and look down, you can see the pool... The room itself was okay... More

We usually stay in Potts Point at the Macleay but we were looking for a change of area for 4 nights. This hotel is well situated close to the Verona cinema, Darlinghurst and Paddington and well served by buses. The management are very helpful and friendly including letting us have a 2 hour extension on our morning departure. The standard... More

For the price paid we were very happy with this hotel. It was clean and had everything you needed. Attention to a few minor fixes such as missing dimmer on the light switch and some TV channels not being very good picture quality (especially fox sport 3). Some bathroom amenities such as shampoo, conditioner and shower gel would be good... More

Stayed one Sunday night before surgery at St Vincent's Hospital (walking distance). Hotel is a bit dated but pleasant enough. Sited on busy Oxford Street but did not notice noise - I took a more expensive garden-facing room; everything worked OK. Not a bad option for those wanting affordable accommodation handy to the Paddington/Kings Cross/Cricket Ground districts, and a bus... More

The hotel is location is great. There is a bus stop almost directly outside the hotel that takes you to Circular Quay and Bondi Beach. The bus takes about 15-20 minutes to get to circular quay. Buses run very frequently in both directions. A short bus ride up Oxford street takes you to the paddington markets which are every Saturday... More

The location was perfect. The staff was very nice and helpful. The same bus takes u to the Beach and to the Opera House in 10-15min & The Bus stop is 10 feet away from the front door. The street has great cafés, boutiques, salons, bookstores and a small movie theater. The bookstore/cafe next door has great coffee and sandwiches.... More

Thank you for posting a review of our hotel. We are sincerely sorry about your experience with cockroaches. Unfortunately weather conditions in Sydney at this time of the year can mean insects are more prevalent. In rooms with sliding balcony doors we encourage guests to keep the door closed whenever possible. Sadly we were unable to offer you another room... More

We were looking for accommodation close to St. Vincent Hospital & the Arts Hotel was exactly what we were looking for . Right on Oxford St. I expected some noise , but apart from a refuse truck reversing up the lane-way ( around 8am ) during one of our three nights , it was very quiet . The room was... More

The Arts Hotel, whist not an upmarket hotel has the most amazingly friendly and professional staff. Everyone of them was helpful. Our holiday started with our car being involved in a collision outside the hotel. Thanks to the staff and their knowledge of the area and their advice our holiday was not ruined!
