The good things about Brickfield Hill: It's a magnificent, well-maintained late-Victorian four storey terrace, well-located in what I think is the best restaurant and cafe part of Sydney. David and the staff are very helpful and responsive, and at $130 a night, this is not bad value. Rooms are very clean, and the plumbing is up to date. There are... More

Nice, quiet street in close proximity to great restaurants, shops and nightlife. Easy walk to Central station. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Great historic building, and friendly, helpful host. Shared bathroom facilities, but one room available with ensuite.

This beautifully restored 1885 Victorian terrace house is well situated for a visit to Sydney since it is a 10 minute walk from Central Station but right away from tourist mania, making it very peaceful at night and a joy to walk around. I stayed in a second floor en suited room which was scrupulously clean, fresh-smelling and very comfortable.... More

This is a quiet yet fun neighborhood with great cafes. David is a really helpful host. Ask him for recommendations about transport and eating. You can walk to downtown and the harbor through parks and the Botanic Gardens. Just right.

I woke up to the chatter of loriket parrots, air fresh and humid from the overnight rain, natural light streaming through windows into our high ceilinged terrace room. Its a simple go-as-you-please, look-after-youself kind of affair. Fantatsically priced and right the midst of where you want to be for good food/drinks in surry hills and access to transport to get... More

Brickfield Hill is a delight. All previously reviews apply so if you care about tea making and uneven floors go elsewhere. If you adore heritage well done, ambience, detail and delight... Don't look further and book here. As for insects, they were here before us and the diffuser was effective. I wandered out for breakfast to the Orto Trading company... More

I booked Brickfield Hill for 5 nights based on price and location. It's just a 10 minute walk to the Central Station where the Circle line has you at Circular Quay in minutes. I was a little surprised that breakfast didn't come as part of the fee but that worked for me because it forced me to get up and... More

This was a last minute 'blind' booking that I picked based on location and sheer availability! It is situated on a quiet street in a Victorian style house over three floors. I was in the 'green' room on the top floor at the rear of the property. It was a small room however it boasted a balcony which overlooked the... More
