weekend away

I found the room on the small side, As I was on my own it was o.k. but a couple would find it tight. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and the location was handy to access public transport.

Small decent boutique hotel close enough to the city

Clean boutique hotel located within 20 min walk or bus to the cuty & most Sydney attractions incl the Opera House, the Rocks, even Bondi beach! Rooms were smaller than expected but generally clean. Staff were friendly. No elevator but short flight of stairs to climb even with luggage.

Clean & comfy but needs some love

Good value, clean, comfortable hotel with nice staff and handy location. Awesome cocktail bar contained therein (the Apothecary). However, room fittings and furnishings are getting quite worn and tired - could do with some love and some funk. Overall presented good value for money but I would be wary of staying again unless some mainly cosmetic improvements were carried out. I do usually stay in 4.5 - 5 star hotels only but thought I would try out a boutique style one this time. I'm unsure if I would return. Yes on cleanliness, comfort, location and staff but a no to general ambience and loss of groove

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Loads of hip and edgy places to eat one street over (straight across the car detailers yard in front of hotel) Also only about a 20 minute walk into town or a few minutes to train station.

I know what 'boutique' means

I now know what 'boutique' means if it is attached to the word 'hotel': no lifts, no breakfast, no parking, no morning newspaper to the room, little insulation from upstairs noise and above all, tiny rooms. In this case it did mean a very good location and chic decor; but overall, however, value was only fair.
