Lived up to my expectations as a charming, beautifully presented boutique hotel. It was worth the climb up many stairs to my light-filled ,well-appointed and generous sized room with bathroom. Two windows looked over the very attractive neighbourhood architecture and trees. As a senior I may book on a lower floor next time . Excellent location. Thank you.

Love to stay at this hotel when we are in Sydney, great urban vibe, great cafes nearby and this is really a great departure from trad hotels. Put this one at the top of your list!

Simplicity of the entry, a unique name and thst reflected in the exterior colour and reception area. The courtyard with water feature calming, post covid with tables and chairs would be nice again. Lighting at night in this area lovely as my room opened onto this area.

Proximity to CBD, quietness, helpful and friendly staff. Bathroom tiles need cleaning. Bedstead too wide for mattress.

Excellent property, though was not suitable for myself and my wife for this visit due to being a little noisy (older victorian style building) and my wife was recovering from surgery. Staff were excellent and allowed me to get a refund and were completely understanding. Will be back.

We are shaping up to be repeat offenders at this diamond in Darlinghurst. Luke provides the warmest welcome & rooms are comfortable, clean & loaded with charm. The bathtub was a special delight on a travel day. Situated close to cafes & restaurants aplenty, this is a must-stay hotel.
