Sydney is an expensive place to stay at the best of times. When travelling for work, this is even more relevant. This is in a good position, half-way between Oxford Street and Kings Cross/Potts Point, also an easy walk to Darlinghurst's bars and restaurants. Beyond that, generally, the rooms are small, very small, and the bathrooms are adequate but need...

Upon arrival I knew we wouldn't have parking at the hotel but assumed there'd be some sort of option for parking our car, didn't see online that parking is $30 per day. That cost was never stated. When we checked in I had already paid upfront months in advance and was going to be charged again because they didn't look...

As always the Kirketon Hotel offers elegant rooms with a little funky character. Relax and go with it! The attached Restaurant Fu Manchu offers well cooked, mostly Chinese based meals, a light meal very easy and a great wine list, lots of good wine by the glass 5 minutes walk to Oxford Street and all it has to offer!

Returned client, solid experience. Rooms clean. Service was good. Very good experience, though feel the mattress on the bed was starting to feel its age - not in a bad way, yet, but is starting to get there. Only issue really.

This place has a thing for mirrors. Mirrors lining the corridors and mirrors everywhere in the room, I guess to make it feel like the place is bigger than it is (none on the ceiling though, I will let you decide if that is a plus or a minus). While the rooms aren't exactly generously sized they do not feel...

My room also had a cracked window and there is no lift so you have to manually carry your luggage upstairs which isn't ideal. I was only there for one night and for the location, i thought it...

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
