My husband and I have just had a long weekend at this hotel and have to say can't wait to return. We visit Sydney quite often to get away from Sleepy Hollow (Canberra) but usually stay closer to Darling Harbour in an overpriced hotel and get stung copious amounts of money for parking!!! Not any more. We had a fantastic... More

I enjoyed an overnight stay here to go to a couple of concerts. On arrival the people at reception were very friendly and helpful, and that continued throughout my stay. The hotel itself shows wear and tear although it is clean and tidy and clearly well looked after. The hallways are dark but inside the rooms there is plenty of... More

I stayed at this hotel in Paddington for 3 weeks. Great value, great location ( I walked into the CBD a few times) and lots of interesting walks. A fairly old hotel, but clean and pleasant, comfortable bed, excellent customer service. Not fussed on the breakfast offerings, but there are many great cafes within walking distance, and very close (about... More

Stayed here as my husband was having surgery at St Vincent's private hospital last week. You could not get a better location! Rooms are a little pokey but we really didn't spend any time in it. Hotel is clean, staff are friendly and helpful and the bar next door does a great meal ( also there is a great Thai... More

We happily stayed, Feb10-16/2015, in a Garden/Arts room, #316, which over-looks the interior courtyard. The room was of modest size but was comfortable, very clean, completely upgraded and more than we expected for the price. Our greeting by the staff and continued interaction with them was stellar...extremely helpful and friendly. The location well suited our need of being out of... More

Sydney is quite expensive and this is the least expensive hotel in Paddington, while still living unto the standards of a hotel. Have stayed here a few times and found the location excellent and felt quite at home. The breakfast downstairs is quite nice too.

Had occasion to join a friend at this hotel recently and would definitely return. We were having to be in close contact with St Vincents Private Hospital and it was the perfect location. Rooms are not large but very compatible with twin beds for us, plus bathroom amenities which were small but not uncomfortably so. Staff were amazing and just... More

This is a basic but functional hotel. The rooms are small and clean, the bathrooms even proportionally smaller, but it works well. I stayed there Friday week ago (6 Feb 2015), because I had an early morning commitment in Woolhara, and merely needed a bed. I got that! The bed was comfortable. The best thing about this hotel, in my... More

Stayed at the Arts Hotel for one night and found it to be clean and comfy. Had 3 single beds, fridge, TV, air con and en-suite bathroom with shower. Range of bars and restaurants down the road and within walking distance to Sydney sights. Swimming pool was a bonus. Would recommend.

Its a perfect location in sydney for a quick stay. we stayed for three nights and we literally got surprised by the luxury it offered us in such a reasonable price. Rooms were not so big but were very clean and comfortable comprising of almost everything under the sun. The gardens and the pools are a lovely bonus. I got... More
