I cannot say enough good things about the Kirketon Hotel. Although the rooms are nice, the beds great, and the location in Darlinghurst is superb, it is the staff's friendliness and helpfulness that compels me to give this hotel 5 stars. Whether calling us an airport shuttle, finding us a place to exchange money, making dinner reservations, or printing out... More

Once again, a misleading website. Making the hotel look much nicer, larger and more comfortable than it actually was. It was all very, very dark especially the bathroom set out in a long corridor with the toilet at the far end. Dim lights in bathroom made normal routines quite difficult and the size of the room meant it got cluttered... More

In Sydney we stayed at Kirketon hotel in Darlinghurst Rd.

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighborhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
