I needed to stay overnight in Sydney on short notice, and booked the Darlo Bar tentatively two days out- it was cheaper than everything else around it, and to be honest, I didn't like the name. But what a great place it is to stay! The quieter end of Liverpool street, it has a genuinely laidback, old school Sydney vibe,...

New owners have totally renovated this iconic pub. It has now become "the place to go to" for locals. You can sit on the pavement and enjoy watching the world go by or treck up to the roof top and enjoy shared dishes whilst looking across the rooftops of Sydney towards the City skyline. It has been turned into a...

Fine for a short stay. Clean and close to everything. Comfortable room. Friendly, helpful staff. Shared showers and bathrooms ok. Shower could benefit from some kind of bath mat. Remember that downstairs is a fully functioning pub, so there is 'pub noise' (music stopped at 12pm).

Stayed here for a week - comfortable room, clean and spacious - staff in the downstairs pub are great, with a quality selection of grog and tasty burgers on offer. Easy five minute walk into Kings Cross & Woolloomooloo and ten minutes into the City. Would certainly stay here in again.

Quirky little bar downstairs but the room we stayed in wasn't the greatest. Air conditioner didn't work and it was very squishy. The shared bathrooms are very outdated and gross also. Probably better to stay in a hostel for the price we paid. Staff were nice and helpful.

This is the first review Ive ever felt compelled to write in order to inform other travelers looking for a place to stay simply because it was BUDGET quality accommodation for extremely unreasonable price. There is no end to the number of issues with this place. Terrible, pretty much non-existent wifi, tiny room, with power sockets so close to the...

I stay in Sydney for work regularly- and so have been looking for "home away from home" type accommodation. I loved staying at the Darlo!! It's walking distance to everything, lots of great cafes and restaurants nearby, not to mention the Darlo Bar itself as a great place to hang out! The rooms were clean, the staff were always friendly...

This hotel is disgracefully over priced for the lack lustre quality it provides guests The staff who checked myself and partner in were unprofessional, having to wait 2 hours to check into a room which was falsely advertised and presented on booking.com (photos are a sham!) The room was freezing cold, the decor was appalling and if you want somewhere...

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.
