“Outstanding accommodation and location”
Reviewed October 6, 2009

I stay at Alishan on a regular basis. I find the staff unfailingly courteous and helpful. The private rooms are well appointed, attractive and very clean. The bathrooms are exceptionally good. Refurbished rooms have plasma TVs. The guest house has an enormous communal kitchen and lounge area which is perfect for families. The gust has is very conveniently located in the centre of cosmopolitan Glebe and a short walk from the University of Sydney. It has a diverse clientele -- from travellers to business people. The building itself is a delight -- a faithfully restored Victorian villa with sweeping ceilings and original leadlights. I would highly recommend Alishan to any prospective visitor. It is a plasure to stay there.

We stayed at Alishan in 2003 and in June 2009 and would definitely recommend this lovely guesthouse to anyone who loves staying at a place with character: In the middle of Glebe but reasonably quiet, lovely clean rooms, good kitchen and dining area, beautiful balcony/garden and knowledgeable staff.

This has been one of my best trips to Sydney, largely due to this wonderful hotel and its very friendly staff. Moreover this hotel is conveniently located, central in the town, its easy to get to most places from here. It sure felt like a home away from home. i would recommend it to any and all who wish to come to Sydney.

I spent three months at Alishans. I didn't meet plenty of people, but the few i met became my friends. And this is what is about. if you are not looking for a busy backpackers' hostel, you want to have a proper rest at night, and space to move around the house, this is the place for you. It's the best way to enjoy a city like Sydney. Location is awesome. Glebe is a trendy bohemian area...it's closed to the City but quiet on the same time.

My friends and I were very surprised and pleased at what we saw. We were expecting nothing special about the place. Well it looked like the place had just gone through a massive makeover. We felt the warmth the moment we stepped in. The place was well maintained and very clean. I really liked the nicely polished dark redish wooden floors and the warm light yellow walls. It gave a nice atmosphere to the place. It was very home like.
The staff was very welcoming, helpful and great to talk to.
I highly recommend this place. If you're after a nice relaxing weekend and need a place to relax around Sydney, then consider staying at Alishan. It's only about 8 minutes bus ride to the center of the city and is a walking distance to the University of Sydney. Oh and did I mention th great food stalls just across the road?

Turn of the century building nicely restored, high ceilings, airy and light windows make it very good deal for something so near down town. The staff and owners are all highly traveled and try hard to make this more than just a simple hotel. It is much cleaner than many places that bill themselves as clean. The neighborhood has the highest concentration of good bookstores and coffee shops in Sydney. Newtown has more nightlife than Glebe but is only a short walkable distance away

  • Liked — the owners are firendly and know alot
  • Disliked — parking is not so easy
