I’ve been to Sydney several times and have stayed at several hotels of varying quality in different neighborhoods. Knowing that I’d prefer a boutique hotel and also knowing that a view of the harbor was not the most important thing on my list, I thought this hotel was beautiful and in the best location for visiting Sydney. After reading dozens of reviews on Trip Advisor, I was very specific when I booked my room at the Establishment, and I really think it paid off. This was our first stop after landing in SYD from LAX so I requested a studio room on a high floor and it was absolutely perfect. We did notice some noise from the adjacent room, but nothing too loud and no loud street noise at all – although we live in New York City, so we are used to a bit of noise. We found the room to be very clean and didn’t have any complaints. The water pressure in the shower was incredible and the bathtub was so welcoming after a long flight. As other reviewers have mentioned, the Sleep Tight tea and the incense they have throughout the hotel were so helpful and relaxing for jet lag. We did see the bumps in the rug, but we noticed that they were also in the hallway. Maybe they are part of the design? We weren’t really sure, but didn’t find them that bothersome and honestly forgot to ask about them. The staff were all very helpful and friendly – when we got there, the lady who helped us (whose name is escaping me – she was from Brazil) was so great. She called hospitality and asked them to make our room a priority so we could check-in as early as possible. We found that to be such a memorable touch. Staying at the hotel also got us bookings into Mr. Wong (which normally doesn’t take bookings), and also made it easy to get a table for cocktails at Hemmesphere and dinner at Est. Based on our experience, I would definitely stay here again the next time I’m in Sydney.
