We stayed for three nights at Morgan's in March. We picked a recently renovated room from the hotel's website, so that we knew we were getting something slick, like the photos.
The room HAD been recently renovated, looked just like the photos... but it appears it's all been done on the cheap perhaps, doing what they could with the little space and weird shaped rooms. The door to the cupboard didn't quite fit, the shower head was falling out of the roof (!!) and the bathroom was a little pokey considering it was a boutique hotel.
The large room in our 1 bedroom apartment was wasted space - no table to sit at..! And they obviously didn't want us to cook (we didn't anyway) in the new kitchenette as there were no pans. What a waste of a lovely new kitchette..!
We arrived late in the night and we'd already tee'd up with Jozef to collect the keys from the safe near the door as the reception isn't manned 24 hours. All in all, great service from all the staff on the front desk and in e-mail corresspondence. Rooms were always tidy and clean after we returned to our room in the afternoon. True - the WiFi won't reach beyond the 1st or second floors.
Security wise, the keycard access was great if people are concerned about this hotel being near the Cross. It's located far enough away from the night life (Kings Cross and Darlinghurst Road) that we couldn't hear a thing from our 4th floor room, on the front of the building.
Awesome location. Victoria Street is lined with awesome places to eat and drink. Definitely try Kika for tapas, Tigerbakers for breakfast and Lil Darlin' for snobby people and cocktails..! Walking distance to Oxford Street and a reasonable stroll to Paddington Markets on a Saturday.
All in all, a nice stay - but needs some work. I would stay here again, and definitely in the area, as we noticed the location of the Altmont, Kirketon, Diamant... all hotels I'd considered staying at too.
PS - Great view on the roof across to the Bridge :)
