4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Just stayed one night for business but a very good modern hotel in an old terrace. Room well appointed with kitchenette and nice and quiet. Great location near Victoria St bars and restaurants and only a short taxi or bus ride to CBD. Can also walk to Kings Cross rail station.

Our room was a good size and well appointed with closet space, a small kitchenette, and a bathroom with nice toiletries. The hotel is in a great location on a quiet residential... More

Wonderful location, we walked most places, awesome restaurants nearby. Wanted to avoid the anonymous big hotel chains and were looking for a more intimate experience. Met at the door by the Luke who was the most fabulous and knowledgeable guide as well a delight to chat with.

The Hotel staff were the best and looked after us very well, my daughter cannot climb stairs so they always made sure they had a ground floor room, was still some... More

We loved this hotel tucked away in Darlinghurst. We liked so much we stayed two weekends in a row which wasn't in the plan. The staff are really pleasant, friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but perfect. They are immaculate every day and smell delicious. The location is wonderful, very close to lots of great eating places. The 389... More

The staff were really friendly and really helpful and made our experience . Our room was just newly carpeted and lovely and clean. The aesop toiletries are a nice touch. There was a small kitchenette so it is perfect for making a quick breakfast in your room. The bed was big and really comfy. The negatives were the shutters in... More

This is a lovely, small boutique hotel in a fabulous location - walking distance to Paddington and heaps of cafes in Darlinghurst, Kings Cross and Potts Point.. Fabulous staff, nice little extras (Aesop toiletries, quality magazines), and delicious breakfast. Big atmospheric room with lovely furnishings, I look forward to staying again with my family.

What can I say - I had a fab stay at the Medusa Hotel! Started off my weeklong trip to Sydney with a night's stay at Medusa and couldn't have picked a lovelier place to start off with :) The hotel is set in the Darlinghurst area, which, while not in the heart of Touristville, Sydney (i.e not smack-dab at...

Only stayed for one night but had a great experience. Staff were friendly, the room clean and comfortable, great toiletries and the hotel was trendy and quiet in a great area. Enjoyed the pastries left for guests near reception in the morning too. Highly Recommend
