    Superb

    The staff was incredible, the room was extremely confortable and the best bar on earth is just downstairs. Award winning cocktails and their makers, full of character, movie-like atmosphere and feeling very welcome. Location also excellent for shopping and going out. What a gem. What a weekend!

    Superb

    The decoration of the room

    No breakfast in the hotel itself. But avantageously replaced by the proximity of a french café across the street.

    Good

    Close to all city areas of interest, able to walk to pitt st and harbour etc. Hotel quite ok for short stays.

    Not being able to have open windows, the air con wasn't working well, kept cutting out therefore room stuffy. I know its more secure, but i like fresh air.

    Great bar, friendly staff, clean room and great atmosphere.

    After paying for my room, I was asked to leave a deposit of $100. I have never done this before and found this to be annoying.

    The cocktail bar out the back was nice and the staff were friendly

    The rooms were not upto boutique standard and therefore it was quite expensive.

    Fabulous

    I liked the fact that you could open the window and get fresh air and it was very quite The beds were very comfortable.

    The bathroom was very small I banged my head a few times also there really was no where to boil the kettle and make a cup of tea.

    Fabulous

    Unacceptable level of noise by cleaning staff in adjacent rooms from 7.30am onwards which seriously spoiled an otherwise pleasant stay. It has made me think seriously about wanting to stay there again.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Primarily the staff, all were friendly and helpful without any attitude.

    Bathroom renovation needed! All new tiles and lighting should be installed. Rainwater shower head is a good idea but too small to be effective.

    Location close to restaurants

    Good

    The bar in the hotel is fantastic, along with the location in Darlinghurst. Victoria street is butsling at night. Free internet

    Very small rooms. Quite noisy. Not a very good design hotel. I'd stay somewhere else nearby and the you can go and have a drink in the fabulous bar called Eau de Vie.
