Greeted by a couple of friendly dogs at reception, we knew were in the right place. Clean, spacious, comfortable rooms. Great location and quiet, which is surprising based on the busy location. Would stay again.

This is a really nice hotel pet friendly and different decor, a big of a Tuscan feel. The manager Alan is very accommodating I would certainly recommend this boutique hotel and stay here again very well situated close to restaurants And bars.

Love, love, loved the Altamont - favourite place to stay in Sydney. But it's shut! Going to be knocked down so that a block of ugly apartments can go up in place of this historic, funky and truly original boutique hotel. Where is all that great Balinese leather furniture going to go - that's what I'd like to know! There's... More

I spend every second week in Sydney for work and have for more than a year. After trying various hotels and private apts I was becoming very disheartened with finding the right place that would make my time away from home and family more comforting and enjoyable without imposing on friends all of the time. I came across the Altamont... More

I stayed here with a close friend who was visiting Australia. All I can say is that it was just perfect. Being a Sydneysider myself, I was particularly proud of the quality of this hotel, and the decor and all the little touches - the ever so friendly owner, or perhaps even just the receptionist, I wasn't too sure, because...

I had walked past the Altamont many times but never stayed. It had been on my list, just not high on my list. It does look less inviting from the outside than it actually is. Having tried (and been rather disappointed with) Morgan's (across the road-ish) and with the Medusa (my personal favourite) booked out I ended up finally giving... More

Simple hotel with just enough for a short stay. My company put me up in the Hilton for a few days...then on my own budget booked a room in the Altamont for a single night. This place is smack between a backpackers hotel and a "proper" hotel. Don't expect any perks like room service or a mini-bar. The front desk... More

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst my husband was in hospital, I chose this hotel because it was within 5 minutes walking distance to St Vincents Private Hosp. I was very pleased with my choice. The hotel was clean, the proprietor pleasant, and the room spacious, and comfortable. I would stay here again, it's in a great location, close... More

I stayed at the Altamont for three nights for a work trip. I chose it because it allows pets which is brilliant for me because I hate leaving the little guy behind. For such a small hotel in a busy location the room was whisper quiet. Service was friendly and unobtrusive and the location is excellent. My room was clean... More

Attentive staff member when we booked in and we were shown to our room, the bedding was clean but the room very dated and in need of repairs and a face lift esp the bathroom, if your fussy... More

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighborhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
