The staff at Medusa are wonderfully personable and really add something special to your stay. If service is important to you then this is the hotel for you! I had a deluxe queen room and while it wasn't huge it had everything I like in a hotel room - big bathroom, lovely bath amenities, efficient kitchenette, windows that open, huge... More

I totally adored my stay at Medusa and if I come back to Sydney this is where I will stay - and recommend. The staff are amazing (helped me from the taxi in the pouring rain - yes Sydney has recently copped a drenching), helpful and fun without losing their professionalism - the perfect mix. They recommended some great local... More

I've been here three times in the past year - mostly for the odd few days as a business traveller. The front of house staff made me feel really welcome, they honestly couldn't have been more helpful. This is clearly a gay-friendly hotel, but not exclusively so. The decor is OK (a bit 1980's and needs a good spruce up... More

This 17 bedroom small boutique hotel is located about 25 minutes walk from the CBD. The hotel is stylishy furnished but what gives this place an edge over other accommodation nearby is the people who work here. A characterful bunch of employees really communicate with guests in such a positive way that it leaves you feeling like you're treated as... More

Quirky place hidden away but what a gem of a find. Gorgeous rooms and such a peaceful outlook onto an enclosed courtyard with soft lights and running water. The aroma of lavender flowing through the air was not overpowering but relaxing and welcoming. Staff were helpful and friendly and not too intrusive. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a fabulous... More

Very central location and easy to drive past because it's a renovated house, but extremely comfortable, modern, clean and friendly. Staff were very keen to please, room was spacious and spotless, and there were free pastries in the morning! Best of all, you can park your car down the street overnight, and pick it up valet-cleaned the next morning! Perfect... More

I'm not a traveler who looks for hotels with fancy gyms, saunas, restaurants, or pools as part of the hotel experience - I want a comfortable, clean, convenient place as a base to get out in the city I'm visiting. Medusa fit that for me. Got a great deal here, even around Mardi Gras time, and was thoroughly pleased with... More

This is a quirky / boutique hotel about 5 minutes walk from Kings Cross station. When I first walked out of the station (daytime), it felt like a slightly dodgy area (Kings Cross of old) - but this quickly disappeared as I walked around and got a better feel for the place (in the daytime). If you exit on to... More

We stayed one night to have dinner with family in Kings Cross. Service was excellent, location to Kings Cross, the station and a morning walk into the gardens was superb. Room was spacious but not huge - perfect for the two of us. Would definitely book again.
