‘Young, ambitious and wealthy’ describes the target audience for this uber-stylish, 31-room boutique bolthole right in the heart of Sydney’s downtown.

Coolly ostentatious in the New York loft style, with Philippe Starck pieces in rooms and suites, it’s ideal for those who seek Sydney’s urban delights.

Tucked away down a side street, you’re in party central close to bars, theatres, restaurants and shops, with convenient transport at hand.

The central city location is excellent for sightseeing and exploring Sydney on foot. It’s strolling distance from big hitters like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Royal Botanic Garden, and the Sydney Opera House.

The ferry dock on Circular Quay is also nearby – as is the city’s new light rail system.

Surrounding area

This hotel is part of Sydney’s historic business district, where the surrounding city streets are dominated by office blocks. Streets generally are busy with people and traffic – more so during office hours – but it’s still pleasant, clean and safe.

Things quieten down at night too. Some of the city’s smartest restaurants, including Est. and Mr. Wong, are literally on the doorstep.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...
