Good but could do better

Made welcome on arrival despite being early. Clean and comfortable. Beds firm support. Please sort out mirrors in bathroom. There is no swivel mirror and I had to crush myself between the toilet and the handbasin to get close enough to the wall mirror to put my contact lenses in. Wife had to do similar for her make up. Downstairs cafe/breakfast not open in afternoon. Great breakfasts though. Overall a good stay.

Overall a good stay, modern hotel

Hotel is very modern and the design is cool. Rooms are of a bit small (stayed in Queen room), but they get the job done. Nice bathrooms. Wifi was a pain as there are individual login IDs and passwords for each devise - seems there are better ways to manage. No workout centre but restaurant and lounge is nice. Just a 5 minute walk from Darling Harbour.

Posh, comfortable rooms with all the latest amenities-- even a loaner iPad. Easy walk to Darling Harbour. Lovely, helpful staff. I just can't say enough good things. A fantastic boutique hotel in a great part of Sydney at a very reasonable price. We will be back for sure!

Disappointed

Hotel: We expected a stylish and 'young' hotel. Whilst the hotel was stylisch, it seemed to attract people at the age of 60+. If you are looking for a Young and vibrant hotel this is the wrong place. Room: Was comfortable (Deluxe room, nice bathroom) but not quite. We heard the sound from the restaurant and the kitchen in our room. Also very loud at night from the street as the window was not soundproof at all. Bar and restaurant: Staff was unkind. Even when the bar was not very busy, service staff only took orders at the bar and did not come to the table.

Great stay !

Had a great time . Rachael at the front desk was a legend. Bed was super comfy . Hotel is very chic and well designed out of the old wool factory . It is a little bit of a walk to the " rocks " area where the bridge climb is .45 mins . Loved the clear elevator .

Cut through the carpark across the street from the hotel to save some walking distance to the Harbourside Shopping Center.

Eclectic Style

i loved my stay in this hotel. it is very carefully designed. Every detail inside is interesting, contemporary and fun. The color scheme, the furniture, the rooms, have a perfect match. It is also very comfortable. Our breakfast there was also delicious. Every room has an Ipad with all the information you need to get around and enjoy your visit to Sydney.
