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.

We had the pleasure of staying in the Arts Hotel in March and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The hotel is a little out of the hustle and bustle which is what we like as it allows you to see other parts of a city, as well as the main tourist spots. We were lucky enough to get... More

The Arts Hotel is in the ideal position for all the places I'd like to visit when on a quick trip to Sydney. Situated in Paddington, but on the cusp of Darlinghurst & Surry Hills, it's perfect for a food & culture weekend. A quick & easy bus trip to the City or Bondi; it's the dream spot for any... More

This is a reborn hotel apart from the not unpleasant sprayed concrete ceilings from the early 70's. Compact and clean with newish sheets, towels, carpets, air/con etc. Upgraded free to a garden room, which probably had a more pleasant outlook than non-garden rooms. Other rooms seem to be very near Oxford Street, which might bother some. The hot water in... More
