“Right in the middle of everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We had a great time staying here. The rooms are newly decorated, the building is quite old. We got great service; arriving in the city in our rented rv, we wanted to quickly drop off our luggage. The staff brought it up to our room while we were returning the rv. We were on the 4th floor, from where we could see the bridge and the opera house.
If there is a bad thing to say, is that it can be a little noisy in the streets at night; there are lots of backpackers, clubs and bars in the adjacent street. Our street itself is really quiet though.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floor.

Dear Philip-Beekman,
Thank you for your recent review of Regents Court. We are glad to read that you enjoyed you stay with us!
As your review suggests, we are proud to be located in one of Sydney’s most interesting and lively neighbourhoods, Potts point which is well known for its cafes, bars and restaurants. We are however located on a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle and this tends reduce some of the noise from surrounding businesses.
Did you have a chance to view our rooftop garden? We suggest visiting it next time as we are very proud of it and its a good outoor retreat from feeling like you are in a big city.
We look forward to inviting you back to Regents Court!
Best wishes,
The Regents Court Family.

Great value online of this Sydney Kings cross/Darlinghurst hotel. only 150 metres or so from station and in a quiet street only one block off the busy main strip of Darlinghurst road with cafes, restaurant and characters. The rooftop garden is a gem and gives glimpses beyond and a welcoe respite after a busy city sightseeing day. Our room was spacious with kitchenette and some charm. Fittings were starting to age but all was OK and good value. The free wifi was a tad slow for my liking. No parking though although a 24 hour carpark (pricey) is nearby so more suited to those using public transport.

i found this hotel, and was impressed by its value on line, when i got there is lived up to it expectations, and they were very helpful and even gave me a free upgrade to bigger room. nice spacious, clean, well equipped hotel, and the staff went the extra mile. To make it even better the wifi wont keep dropping out (although it is free) the TV aerial might be a little stronger. anyway overall great, and I will be staying again

We based ourselves in this "hidden gem" for an extended long-weekend in Sydney. It is located just off Darlinghurst Street about 1/2km from the famous Coca-Cola sign and only 150m from the Kings Cross Railway Station. Choices for dining are abundant and varied with Petrol cafe just down from the front door and an excellent choice for breakfast. The rooftop garden is a great place for a relax or BBQ and as previously mentioned the staff are engaging, friendly and efficient. Rooms are well appointed and clean and the original lift fun for our son. Parking on site is limited but public parking behind the Kings Cross Police Station (200m away) is $30 per night. Highly recommended!

I just keep finding these places which not only are accessible by public transport (namely trains) but are staffed by brilliant, wonderful human beings. I have placed my family and friends here when they are visiting in Sydney and we run out of room. They simply catch the train either directly to Kings Cross ot change at one of the city stations to get there. Bondi Beach is 2 train stations away and the city only 1 or 2 in the opposite direction.
The Sydney harbour view from the rooftop BBQ garden is amazing!!
Value for money, Free wifi, wonderful and obliging staff... just do it!!!

Room Tip: arrive before 8pm to check in. If you are early and a room is available you can get early check in...

We had a quick trip to Sydney for a party in Potts Point and Regents offered the best value for money room in the area. I had stayed there before years ago and love the quaint architecture and old elevator. We arrived, were upgraded to a lovely room looking over the (very quiet) street, and our room was ready for us at 12.30pm. Perfect! We didn't spend much time there but it was a very comfortable bed, and very peaceful. Yet the CRoss is merely a step away. Love this place - it's a bit boutiquey and special

Room Tip: WE had a large corner suite and it was great

The old metal gated elevator takes you back to the days when this cool old building was once a Gentlemans club. We stayed in the top floor room and had a nice leafy view over the city towards Centrepoint. Room was comfortable, clean and fitted out in Art Deco styling. Love being able to open the windows and not feel like your trapped in a box like so many of the big hotel chain rooms. We enjoyed having a couple of drinks on the rooftop garden while the sun went down. Located right in the heart of Kings Cross, you couldn't get a better location to walk to the pubs, clubs and restaurants all around the area.
