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

We just stayed here, (myself, partner, and 1yr old) for 2nights. David, the host, was very welcoming and willing to help with any questions we had about our visit to Sydney. We stayed in the Lavender room which is on the very top (3rd) floor. Yes, alot of stairs! However, David willingly helped us carry our heavy luggage up the... More

This is a really lovely and reasonably priced B & B! Very clean, beautifully comfortable bed, charming little balcony and fantastic location. A few stairs too many to the top ( 3rd) floor for anyone who is mobility challenged but if you're not in that category I would thoroughly recommend this lovely accommodation. David, the host, was entirely welcoming and... More

First impression quaint and just what we wanted, Once we were in our room we realised there were no facilities to make a cup of tea or or coffee- we have stayed in B & B,s all over the world and never had this experience, Who is going to venture out at 11pm to try and find a cup of... More
