A group of us spent an hour or so at this pub having a couple of drinks before heading of to a wedding in the area. The staff were very friendly and the pub, although was very old, had a lot of charm about it. There were stools to sit at as well as old comfy lounges. A nice way... More

Not sure about the hotel but the bar's very cool. Great little spot for a game of pool or a relaxed drink with friends. Has a nice, small upstairs beer garden, and outdoor seating. Monthly drink specials are great.

Nice friendly atmosphere in the ' city centre pub', hard to find these days! Excellent range of ales. Didn't venture upstairs ,but seemed quite busy and popular amongst the locals. Very relaxing. Also have happy hour.

The Darlo Bar website describes itself as the local community's lounge room, and I think that's spot on. It's funky and fun, but not pretentious. I've been quite a few times, but my most recent visit was with a group of mates. We went up stairs, where the bar is partially indoors/partially outdoors. This is the perfect place to go... More

Not sure about the hotel/rooms because staying elsewhere but the pub itself is great. Good atmosphere and good Australian burgers. Texas Chainsaw Trivia on a Wednesday an especially quirky experience - highly funny AND challenging!

The hotel was not quite what I expected. The room was quite small and dusty and the beds were really hard. Furthermore there was only one wall socket working and one light working. The bathrooms were not very clean; there is mould on the walls and at the ceiling of the showers due to bad ventilation. The towels and bedlinnen... More

Simple, unpretentious rooms with shared bathrooms a few blocks south of Kings Cross down Darlinghurst Road. The Royal Sovereign isn't really a hotel, but a set of rooms above a pub. As such, it's not suitable for those wishing to get to bed before midnight. Once the pub shuts the entire area quiets down, so sleep was not a problem... More

If you want to stay here, do NOT book your room with a guy named Dean. Since you can only book your room online, I submitted the form and waited a few days to be contacted by a hotel "reservationist". Dean contacted me after a few days, asking if I wanted the rooms. In my request, I had asked a... More

Stayed in the Darlo bar for 3 nights over new year - really not sure what to expect as even their inflated new year rate was only AUS $99 per night - really plesantly suprosed, and would recommend Clean room, with bedding and towels changed daily - shared bathrooms always quiet, clean and warm! Bar downstairs can be a little... More
