Very chic, boutique hotel. Exactly the thing if you are after something different from the Marriots of the world - which are fine but tend to look the same everywhere you go. The rooms are modern, minimailst but comfortable. Loved the bathroom which had a folding blind separating the bath from the bedroom. This was great as after a long day pounding the sydney streets I could sit in the bath and watch a DVD. Bars and restaurants were very cool, especially sushi e. We did not stay at the weekend so cannot comment on the noise levels. Location is ideal for CBD, the Rocks, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. Everywhere else easily accessible.

I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for something boutique with great service. We will be going back.

If you're looking for a great location with a cool vibe, big luxury rooms and an overall great experience, then Establishment is for you. The truly amazing thing about the place is that there is so much to offer within the hotel "complex" in terms of a huge and sleek bar, great sushi restaurant upstairs, even better lounge, that you have to pull yourself away to visit other places in Sydney. Since this is such a popular destination for the well-heeled locals to visit well into the night, ask for a room away from the activity. We didn't experience any noise issues since we got a room on the 5th floor on the other side of the downstairs bar. Don't expect views from the bedrooms, but with everything else this hotel offers, you won't miss it (such as the rain shower that appears from the top of the shower ceiling roof). Book this hotel...you'll be happy if you're between 20-45 and looking for a chic spot to rest your feet at the end of the day, and then get back up to experience the scene that it attracts.
