“Great little hotel for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

I stayed at the Altamont for three nights for a work trip. I chose it because it allows pets which is brilliant for me because I hate leaving the little guy behind. For such a small hotel in a busy location the room was whisper quiet. Service was friendly and unobtrusive and the location is excellent. My room was clean and neat, nothing overly flash but I wasn't expecting that for the price. My room had a courtyard which wasn't really required but a nice touch for some fresh air.

Basically not bad for the money $105 for the night, bed only.. would not be my choice for more than one night. Attentive staff member when we booked in and we were shown to our room, the bedding was clean but the room very dated and in need of repairs and a face lift esp the bathroom, if your fussy you will not be happy with the bathroom which was probably clean but because of the age of the tiles, flooring etc still felt rather mucky, or the old and worn rug covering the cement floor. Our room was facing the court yard and was quiet.

We had a great stay, very convenient, bed and pillows were very comfortable, we slept well even though it was the weekend in Darlinghurst and we had a room facing the street. Alan and Bear (the dog) are great. Just over on Victoria St you have a good selection of cafes, bars and restaurants. It includes toast, cereal, juice, tea or coffee for breakfast, wifi, gym nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street will be noisy at night, if you have trouble sleeping get a room away from th...

On my recent trip to Sydney I ended up staying at 4 different hotel over the 3 1/2 weeks we were there. So I got to try many different locations and lodging experiences. Altamont was the 1st stop and since our flight got in at 6am and we eventually got to this small hotel at 9am, we were exceptionally pleased that they got us into our room by 11am. The folks at the hotel are great and we loved the location even though the airport shuttle drive said it was in the heart of the red-light district, which is incorrect. One street over has a great line-up of restaurants and there's a park down the street. It has easy access to public transportation. The room was quiet although the "courtyard" is not really what I would call the space outside our room. It still gives a sense of privacy and is the best choice when requesting a room. The free internet is super and hard to find in the Sydney hotels. Overall not a bad choice for a Sydney stay though I wish I had gotten a better rate. BTW the hotel dog is great!

Room Tip: the courtyard rooms are quieter and cooler

Clean and decent sized room.  Great shower with lots of hot water.  Good location.  Free wifi both in the room and in reception.  Breakfast was included in the room rate but is a bit disappointing - two choices of cereal or toast.  It would be improved by adding a decent fruit salad or a few other healthy options.

This was my first trip to Sydney and I stayed for 3 nights at the Altamont Hotel, which was a great experience. This Hotel has style, is perfectly located and has very clean rooms! Best of all is the staff, which was extremely helpful. I forgot my jacket when I left and they made everything possible to help me getting the jacket back (oversees). I highly recommend this Hotel, and will certainly be back during my next trip to Sydney!
