I was looking forward to staying at this hotel. Supposedly funky and chic. Neither. Apart from reception who were friendly and helpful, the hotel is anything but funky. Very noisy. Walls are paper thin. You can hear everything ... unpleasant. The bathroom sink was badly designed so water lay stagnant. Yuck. Rooms are small. Bed not particularly comfortable. Never stay... More

I've seen this rated as a 4 star hotel, which is misleading. This property is, at best, 2.5 stars. Its location is convenient to many restaurants, shops, cafes, bars, etc. and it's relatively easy to get to and from the CBD. My room, however, was the size of the bed plus a few inches on each side. The bathroom was... More

This place was ok. But ithe room really did not feel four star. Tiny room. No facilities like a pool or gym, which most 4 stars do. Staff were great. Room had this huge tv which was weird for such a small room. Room could have been configured better. Consider paying more for a bigger room. But then you may... More

Kirketon Hotel is located right in the middle of a city and a short walk from Hyde Park and the bars and restaurants along Oxford Street and Surrey Hills. It's not particularly clean or classy but for the price you pay, it's a reasonably comfortable and pleasant place to stay in. Walls are a little thin and you can hear... More

First visit to Sydney and were pleased with the location of The Kirkton, close to excellent restaurants and transportation. The hotel itself did not meet our expectations, price was right but as others have said the rooms could use a good clean, in fact we felt the whole place could use an overhaul. We, as others have said, found a... More

Boutique is my style...the hotel is pretty but not maintained well. The mirror back boards were a beautiful touch but were dirty. The shower had gunk around the corners and their was dust though out. The service was friendly & helpful, annoying that there is no elevator. The corridors are very pretty & with proper care and a little more... More

...and it's all downhill thereafter. The Hotel is incredibly seedy, noisy and shabby. Rooms are little more than broom cupboards, walls are paper thin (some of the more exuberant guests will keep you awake most of the night) and housekeeping needs a stern talking to. Whilst the bed was good, rooms are dirty and bathroom is tired and grotty. Given... More

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.
