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.

Fun vacation

The bed was comfortable , but did take up most of the room space.We loved being provided with an IPAD. the rain shower was great! Staff took care of any questions or problems promptly. location was great, only a short walk from great eateries and the harbor.
