Hotel location is ideal as I was able to walk to the CBD shopping precinct and the Paddington shops and cafes were almost on your door step! Browsing the local book shops only doors from the hotel was fun. The Hotel room -although small was clean and the staff friendly and helpful.

This hotel is well located on Oxford St, Paddington, and is ideal for visiting St. Vincent's Hospital. There is easy access to the City or Sydney's Eastern Suburbs and beaches. In the immediate vicinity are some of Sydney's Top fashion houses, art outlets, cafes and book stores. While modest, it is clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. Staff are courteous and... More

Professional, welcoming and accomodating staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We requested a room fronting Oxford Street. With the double/triple glazing it was quiet and we enjoyed the little balcony. The courtyard was a lovely place to relax and catch some sunrays. The free WiFi was a bonus. And the discounted meals with the hotel next door was great as... More

Situated in Paddington this boutique hotel/ motel is on the main bus route to the city centre and Bondi. Within a short walk of the SCG and Sydney football stadium it's an ideal base for someone travelling to Sydney to watch an AFL or NRL game. An older building the rooms are small but comfortable. on site parking is limited.

I must concur with Penny H, the Arts Hotel is very well located and quiet considering its location on a main road. The hotel is literally minutes from cute cafes, restaurants and pubs; and everything that Oxford St in Paddington has to offer, including the RSL which offers meals and drinks at very reasonable prices. My room had been freshly... More

Was missing the basics that normally come in a hotel room like washers, mini bar, shower cap etc. Very average ròom, neat bathroom. Bed was comfy. Aircon didn't work. Would try somewhere else next time

Can anyone find a better deal than what The Arts Hotel offers? We stayed in a twin courtyard room in beds of crisp white linen (my fave), with newly laid plush carpet and free parking? From internet booking to check out, The Arts Hotel was faultless. There was a genuine sense of pride and courtesy from the staff, who cater... More

Great location being 15 min taxi ride from the airport (I believe they also have an airport shuttle bus), right around the corner from St Vincent's hospital and walking distance to the cbd. On one side you have a great bookshop with cafe above it, and next to that the Verona Palace cinema. On the other side is a little... More

If you are looking for a quaint hotel that has charm and is located walking distance from downtown, this is he place for you. Very friendly front desk, good breakfast (work paying extra for it), wifi, and good people. Very helpful staff. They also have a discount at the restaurant and bar next door.
