Closed for three years

This facility has been closed for three years! When it was open, this bathhouse was most popular and regularly visited by locals. Hopefully it may reopen one day!

Advertized as a featured special on Orbitz, this was positively the worst hotel we ever stayed at. Advertised with a tantalizing view of Sydney Harbor, it's actually smack on Darlinghurst road, the main drag through Kings Cross littered with sex shops and the like.

Neighbourhood Profile
Kings Cross
Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The Cross," Sydney's red light district. These new rules have encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the area, as well as organic markets on Saturdays. The area's nightclubs are still popular with youngsters, however, who will dance to the early morning hours on weekend nights. There are plenty of artifacts from Kings Cross' shady past when gangsters and liquor houses owned the place. Today, one can still find a variety of adult entertainment venues in this evolving area.
