This place has a thing for mirrors. Mirrors lining the corridors and mirrors everywhere in the room, I guess to make it feel like the place is bigger than it is (none on the ceiling though, I will let you decide if that is a plus or a minus). While the rooms aren't exactly generously sized they do not feel...

Cute little place that doesn't have a lift, so you have to walk up a few flights of stairs which aren't horrible as they are short and covered in very plush carpet. Desk lady was looking at my boyfriend trying to explain the payment. I had to butt in to tell her it was MY card..it had my name on...

Very small, a little noisy for my taste and whilst not dirty as such, it was not spotless and a little tired. My room also had a cracked window and there is no lift so you have to manually carry your luggage upstairs which isn't ideal. I was only there for one night and for the location, i thought it...

We were in Sydney for a short break, three nights and so looking forward to staying in a 'boutique" hotel. Looks great on the website, we paid a lot for an executive room, so disappointing. Room was clean and well appointed BUT the bathroom was long and so narrow you could barely turn around, there was nowhere to put toiletries...

This is probable the dirtiest motel style hotel I have ever stayed in. Broken window and the manager has no interest in returning phone calls! Better places in Sydney to stay. The cocktail bar downstairs is fabulous! And the location is great, but hotel is dark and dingy

There's something about first impressions and when you get more than you expected, the impression lasts! Chic boutique, slick service, charismatic cocktails and a room with all you need right on the doorstep of Sydney's nightlife. From check-in to check-out, reception to bar, friendly service and anything I needed from local knowledge to something different from the barman's repertoire couldn't...

Stayed here while on a business trip. Bed was comfortable and room was very clean. The room was very very small which was fine for me but may be an issue for others. Bathroom had a slat window to outside which was into a noisy alleyway so needed to shut the bathroom door to dull the noise. Walls were super...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Kirketon! We arrived well before check-in time but the lovely Ivana at the front desk asked housekeeping to put our room next on the list to be cleaned.

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.
