Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a lovely hotel, modern, clean, friendly and very unique. We stayed here over new year and we were not disappointed. Very helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. Nicely positioned in trendy Paddington with plenty of shops, restaurants and cafes close by. About 30 minutes walk to central Sydney.

Room as clean and comfy and great location. The room was warm and the beds were very comfy. Nice big bathroom. Very quiet. Front desk was staffed until late. We chose the location as it was so close to Paddington Market so we were very pleased to find how good it was.

The hotel is good, but my stay was made great by Dylan, the manager, who took the time to tell me all about the neighborhood and offer recommendations for restaurants and other sights all over Sydney. (Both of us could talk restaurants all day!) There is some street noise during the day, and the hotel doesn't offer a hot breakfast as I'd hoped, but everything else was excellent.

Solid hotel in the Paddington area. Enjoyed being in a real neighborhood, plenty of places to eat close by and right on the bus line. Dylan at the front desk is great and beyond helpful. Bonus was my favorite biscuits that they had downstairs. No complaints on the room although I did not love not having a normal window but I knew this before I stayed.

reat location on Oxford st Paddington - We stayed here for World Pride/ Mardi Gras and we’re not disappointed. A short 15 min or so walk into Taylor’s Square. Nice places for brunch nearby and handy small grocers to pick up snacks. Great shower and nice bathroom. My only not great thing was the check in experience - a bit abrupt with not much info provided and paying for the hotel upfront which was fine, but all I saw was the eftpos matching with hundreds of dollars for me to swipe my card on! Also, given the place is an old bank, the room we stayed in had no proper window, just squares of thick glass to let a bit of natural light in. That was fine for us as it wasn’t a weekend to hang in the hotel room.

I stayed two nights mid week. Beautiful room, excellent amenities, friendly staff. The location is great too. The room itself was comfortable, and very stylish. Bathroom had a huge tub plus two types of shower. This is a gem in the heart of trendy Paddington.

I stumbled across this gem and could not have been happier! The room was spotless, the bed was super comfortable and the Nespresso machine was a lovely inclusion. I arrived early in the morning and didn’t expect my room to be available, so it was a wonderful surprise when I was able to check in early. The building was quiet, despite being on Oxford street. The team were friendly, offered some great recommendations for the best coffee in the area and streets to visit to enjoy the terrace homes that Paddington is known for. The Paddington Reservoir Gardens were a short walk away and worth a visit. The property is highly recommended!

Perfect place to stay for a few days in Paddington and local area. Very clean, comfortable and most importantly, very friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was a bother, security entry was perfect and free breakfast was just right. Will return.
