My daughter & I had dinner at Medusa on our recent trip to Sydney and would highly recommend it. Attentive, courteous staff, and fabulous food (at reasonable prices) in easy walking distance from Darling Harbour. The shortage of toilet facilities was the only disappointment - there was only one to service the whole restaurant!

Dear Dianne Thank you for taking the time to write your review, however you have placed your review onto Medusa Hotel's page by mistake instead of posting to Medusa Greek Tavern's page. Medusa Hotel is located in Darlinghurst and we have no restaurant located on premises. There is a restaurant, which has no affiliation with us, called Medusa Greek Tavern... More

Very impressed with this boutique hotel. I would describe this as not a photogenic hotel. It looks stunning in real life compared to the photos. Solid brick walls throughout the room we stayed in meant absolute quietness. It was so quiet that the only sound at night was from the air conditioner. But the solid brick walls does mean that...

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
