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

Basically not bad for the money $105 for the night, bed only.. would not be my choice for more than one night. 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

We had a great stay, very convenient, bed and pillows were very comfortable, we slept well even though it was the weekend in Darlinghurst and we had a room facing the street. Alan and Bear (the dog) are great. Just over on Victoria St you have a good selection of cafes, bars and restaurants. It includes toast, cereal, juice, tea... More
