This little hotel is ideally situated for easy bus transport to Circular Quay and other places in the City centre. Small but comfortable rooms with everything you need for a short stay. Staff are very helpful and looked after us well. The hotel has no internal catering the pub restaurant next door, also Arts, serves great food at reasonable prices. The Ampersand cafe across the road does a lovely breakfast but don't be in a hurry for it!

A group of 12 family and friends stayed in as a base to visit Sydney. It was a great location to travel around the city, small but modern rooms that do the job perfectly. The Manager Mark, Ali and the other receptionists go above & beyond to help guests and make sure they have the best stay possible. Every time I passed reception they were giving travel directions etc. Nothing is too much trouble & very rare see this high level of services these days. There is small garden area & pool. You can visit the bar next door and receive 10% discount. Don’t be alarmed on arrival by the exterior of the building, as the warm welcome will more than make up for this. The Arthouse Kitchen (nothing to do with the hotel round the corner is great for breakfast. A petrol station with shop is

I stayed here for 6 nights. It was a good location, with the 333 bus stop just down the road. The room was clean and comfortable. The receptionists were welcoming and greeted us every time we came back or left. The only negative was the air-con in the room was smelly.

Stayed September 2019. Clean and safe hotel. Room size could be a little bit bigger. Safe in room with tea making facilities. 20 minutes walk from museum train station and 25 from central station. Ideal location for visiting Bonding, the cricket ground and other locations. Would stay again.

We stayed for 4 nights in Arts hotel. The rooms are compact and clean but more than adequate with a kettle and tea/coffee facilities, which was much appreciated! It’s not directly in the centre of Sydney, but the buses are easy to use, so it wasn’t really a problem! The bar next door is convenient and offers 10 per cent discount off food and drink, so it was convenient after a day of sightseeing! The bus route outside the hotel takes you into the centre of Sydney or to Bondi beach the other way! The staff on reception were particularly helpful and friendly!
