In a city with high priced hotels, this place offers decent rates and is in a great neighborhood - near Kings Cross with lots of transporation and places to eat/drink, and within walking disance of a lot of city sights. Modern building, clean and nicely, if simply, decorated.

We chose this hotel for our two night stay as it's conveniently located to a main station- Kings Cross- and only about 30 mins away from the airport. It is also walking distance to the main attractions and frequent buses run very close to the hotel. The twin room was basic and very clean. It's perfect for those seeking a...

Stay four nights but isn't perfect even the hotel is okay. Pay attention to your "noises neighbors" the walls are pretty slim and we can hear everything. The bed and mattress was good enough and the toilet shower just fine.

$149 including breakfast for 3, its quite a good price and i would consider it close to everything. Couple of minutes from king cross or 15-20 min walk to the opera house or city. Cab and uber to city areas is under $15.

Good location, friendly staff. Was difficult to communicate with the reception area as there wasn't any phone inside the room. Had to go down every time we needed to request something. A good stay, nonetheless. :)

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.
