Just arrived back home after a long weekend in Sydney. Establishment hotel is amazing and made our trip even more enjoyable. The hotel is less than 3 minutes to the Harbour and no more than 5 minutes to the main shopping area on Pitt Street. The rooms are a great size and incredibly comfortable as well as stylish.

Photos made it look grand, while the rooms themselves I suppose were, there was slight staining on the carpet and mould in the bathroom which made it feel under kept. Staff however were pleasant and the location was good.

The studio room was large and very comfortable including a large soft bed with superb pillows. The staff at check-in were incredibly friendly and helpful accommodating all of my requests. I would highly recommend this hotel for couples and solo travellers.

It would be easy to see how people would get excited about this, but there are much better options around. It is part of the whole Establishment building/network of bars on different floors. Rooms are small, but give good space to the bathroom which is good. Door between the room and bathroom is heavy and didn't close properly and door...

Tucked away in an alley off Pitt Street and only literally five minutes walk from Circular Quay, the totally unassuming frontage hides a real hidden gem. Behind the big black door is a very pleasant surprise. We had an Establishment Room which was large and spacious, as was the bathroom, with plenty of storage space and a very comfortable bed....

I love this hotel. I've stayed here twice and intend making this my 'go to' Sydney hotel. The staff are wonderfully friendly, helpful and professional.

Sydney-siders know The Establishment Hotel as a popular place for afterwork drinks and as a pickup place for suits, but most are unaware that there is also a fine hotel. The entry is discreet through a back lane - perfect for making an incognito rockstar arrival. The rooms are immaculate, open plan and exquisitely designed. Whether you're looking for a...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
