A simple clean and convenient hotel right in the middle of Darlinghurst and Paddington. Friendly and helpful staff. Our room was a quiet room at the back and our friends had a room at the front with a soundproof window. The 333 bus to Circular Quay or Bondi is at the front door. Easy access to the city and a short walk to Paddington. Very handy to the footy at the SCG. Very cheap. Definitely not luxury but clean and convenient with helpful staff.
What a lovely hotel. Friendly, professional staff. Was a little annoyed that I sent an email days earlier requesting parking because of disability but no one replied. Other than that, it is quite nice and conveniently located to shops, transport and other amenities and entertainment areas. Just up the road from Taylor Square and almost next to the Verona Cinema. Parking is extremely limited so I would phone well in advance and book parking, it costs extra but so worth it. The room was small and comfortable all round. Noise was lowered considerably when balcony door was closed (huge hint) and you could hear traffic along Oxford street but it wasn’t a big issue. Worth the stay. Maybe emails could be replied to, but also, I could have simply phoned them as well. A pleasant surprise that I’ll be staying at again for sure …
I cannot thank enough The Arts Hotel in Paddington for their excellence, particularly Mark the manager for his unfailing patience and assistance. 5 minutes’ walk from the amazing St Vincent's Hospital, they are catering currently for few patients and relatives when in happier times many more would use their garden pool patio and facilities. They have a most comprehensive folder of local historic walks, eateries, watering holes & tourist travels to the Blue Mountains...... With their kind staff and perfectly clean & adequate facilities in their rooms we will certainly use The Arts Hotel for our visits. The prices are extremely good value: just compare with Sir Stamford, and more expensive hotels now brought in for Covid control. E G Black
Our son was rushed to St VIncents and we chose to stay here for the convenience. It was a very ordinary room but we really didn’t mind in an emergency situation. Our issue was being told that our first night would cost $155 and $15 for parking and would be discounted for subsequent nights. We stayed three nights and were met with a surly response when we asked for a little reduction. Moved to the charming Quest at Potts point for $120 a night. Seems to me the Arts hotel are taking advantage of people at their most vulnerable. Could not recommend this hotel
Located at the far end of Oxford Street away from hustle and bustle yet close enough to dip in and out. Small reception with pleasant staff. Comfortable room, bijou yet adequate. Small shower en-suite served its purpose, good pressure on shower. Comfortable bed. No breakfast option but given a 10% off voucher to use at local establishment. Small central courtyard with seating and a decent sized pool. Great sun trap as no high rise buildings to block out sun, unlike hotels in CBD. A little shabby but room for improvement. CBD, Hyde Park etc within a 20-30 minute walk. Cheap and cheerful.
