Little things could make huge differences

After a week in a walled in room (view on a brick wall - constant noise of huge ventilation fan in alley), we were given a more expensive room (at no charge) with view on trees and windows. This hotel needs better cleaning crew supervision, in room 203 minibar/fridge take too much space from cloth hanging and a second regular chair could be useful. I would suggest shorting the shower curtains so they do not soak in soapy water one guest to the next and give more water pressure.

Great Hotel for First Time Visit to Sydney

For my first trip to Australia, Hotel Kirketon was the perfect choice. Located in trendy neighborhood of Darlinghurst, this hotel was close by all the popular attractions such as restaurants, lounges, shops, public transit, and the Downtown area (known as CBD). The hotel staff was pretty amazing too. Super helpful and very accomodating. It's cute little hotel, perfect for first time visitors to Sydney, Australia.

Avoid high costs associated with Taxi Cabs, when you can walk 3km to the King Cross Train Station and access the entire Sydney in Minutes from this hotel.

Stopover

We arrived early and were welcomed by very friendly hotel staff. We left our luggage, had a coffee just down the road and jumped on a bus to the Opera house. On our return we checked into our room , which was on the second floor, on the side of the hotel, because we wanted a quiet night. We then jumped on another bus to Bondi Beach, a swim and dinner.the room proved to be clean, and quiet, and the bed was very comfortable. There are lots of restaurant s and cafés a short walk away. We will definitely go back and recommend it to friends.

Perfect location, great value

Stayed at the Kirketon for a business trip to Sydney last week. Loved the location! Staff was warm, welcoming and helpful in answering questions and giving advice. Loved the bar/lounge Eau de Vie that's located just off the main lobby. Waterfall shower was nice, room offered a good amount of space. One complaint was the windows which opened onto a brick wall.

La Cucaracha

I'll start with the good - great neighborhood, cool bar downstairs, generally friendly and helpful staff. Now the not so good - the room was rather small. There is one light in the shower, but it's in the back of the shower wall at mid thigh level. Very odd. We stayed three nights and I'm pretty sure they only cleaned our room once. The second night we were there, I went up to the room before my husband (he was at the front desk). I opened the door and a huge cockroach came running from the bathroom area into the middle of the floor. I immediately went downstairs because I wasn't going to touch it. My husband came back up with me and we couldn't find where it went. As we were walking back to the door I saw it in his shoe that was sitting by the chair. He carried the shoe downstairs and we showed it to the front desk. He asked us if we wanted him to call maintenance. It was 2:00 in the morning, so we said no. After that event, I was on the lookout every time we were in the room. The morning that we checked out, I saw three more - one on the wall by the bed, one on the floor and one in the bathroom. I went downstairs and told the front desk (it was a new guy). He told me he was very sorry, it had never hapened before, and he would make a note of it. End of story. There was also a note on our window that said we couldn't open the windows due to health reasons. I don't know what that means, but it seemed sketchy to me.

what a great little hotel

i enjoyed this wondrful hotel so much .........so frindly ......close to everything.........but still felt like a private quiet neighborhood .......eventhough there was a very popular restaurant and bar on the first floor it did not interfere with the personal feel and relaxed attitude of this wonderful little/big hotel

Great location, Friendly staff

we were tourists and the location is in the heart of the Sydney nightlife, cafe district. staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. rooms are small, but very workable if you can work out of a suitcase. housekeeping was a little spotty but room was clean and functional.
