Middle of winter, biting wind, freezing cold, heater not working, aircon zip, and a window that would not close, leaving a 3.5 inch gap for the wind to get in. No-one to ring to fix anything so I suffered until 3:00 am when I left and got a room at the holiday inn around the corner. Dropped my key back... More

Meeting up with a few female friends to see Simon Kennedy (aka Denis Crocker) at the Happy Endings Comedy Club, we gathered in O'Malley's Hotel, just across the road. The pub offers a selection of pizzas and Thai food, both provided by restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The young woman at the bar was really helpful, assuring us that the... More

We stayed at O'Malley's located in the King's Cross area of Sydney. Despite the obvious drawbacks I would strongly recommend O'Malley's to the budget conscious traveler. The Hotel O'Malley's is located above the lively Irish bar also named O'Malley's and consequently there was a great deal of noise into the wee hours of the morning. The King's Cross location certainly... More

this looks like a friendly, cheeky chappy type of place, but if they deem you to have had one glass of wine more than sober then the door staff will take it upon themselves to slap women round the face. one realised this had gone too far but the others stocked up and settled in, unrepentant. classy and professional. friendly...

Small,older, in need of updating. We stayed in 2 differemt rooms for 5 days and the air comditioner didn't work in either of them. Because we had to open the windows, the noise from the pub was very noticable. (Pub is open until 5am!) We didn't notice any problems with Kings Cross location and the train was very convenient. Fast... More

We stayed at O Malleys on the 11 th of November 2011 for several nights and were charmed with this hotel. It is in a very handy location and we were able to use the train system with great ease, very good, free entertainment every night in a bar with a great atmosphere.There is a supermarket over the road which...

I stayed at O'Malleys over the Christmas and New year period and had a wonderfull experience. There is a mixture of people of all ages and cultural backgrounds that stay at the hotal and visit the bar. What they all have in common is the brilliant atmosphere you find when entering the bar. The pub is clean, affordable and has... More

This review is for the pub not the hotel. This may seem strange to review a pub just for drinking in but it shaped our experience of Sydney so much it is worth a mention. The staff are incredibly friendly and make you feel at home. The prices are the best I've seen in Oz an put UK pub prices... More

We stayed here after encountering total horror at both Woodduck hostels and it did the job. It was a little pricey, but as we were staying in Kings Cross (a VERY unsavoury part of Sydney) we needed somewhere quiet and safe and it did the job. Its above a pub but you can't hear any noise. It felt a little... More
