Medusa Boutique Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is a lovely old building in a great location with pub across the road and plenty of cafes nearby. Kings Cross is an easy 10 minute walk. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, interesting in decor and well appointed. The bed was great and the shower good. We enjoyed a large balcony that afforded great views of Darlinghurst Rd and surrounding area. Some may find this room too noisy but we were ok with this. The bathroom is small but functional. A tad overpriced for the standard of hotel.

I've always wanted to stay at the Medusa...having flown to Sydney regularly on business, it was one of the places that I kept my eye on to see if I could get a room in 'budget' my delight, one came on offer for the days I was to be there recently. So it was with great anticipation that I finally rocked up to the very cook frontage in Darlinghurst. Now this is the area I ALWAYS stay

This beautiful boutique hotel is perfectly situated close to a plethora of cafes in Victoria St, within easy walking distance of Kings Cross Station. The friendly reception is second to none, with Luke & Jess the most helpful of hosts. Cosy well-appointed rooms seal the deal- a delight to stay here.

We've started to use The Medusa as our regular long-weekender city-stay destination and have difficulty in faulting it for our purpose. From reservation through the check in and stay experience the boys have always taken good care of us and do go out of their way to ensure we have everything we need.

Great staff always welcoming, great location and only short walk to train station, nice room and bathroom, good wifi included, no major issues, would return for another visit to this amazing city! Thanks

Helpful staff who went out of their way to add a personal touch to our room for us and made our trip more memorable. Great location, walking distance to CBD and harbour. The Grand Room was spectacular - so spacious and lots of great facilities.

I stayed at The Medusa for 7 nights during Sydney Fashion Week, and I must say, the staff were fantastic. Cheerful, bright and HILARIOUS, each and every one of them went above and beyond to make my trip as comfortable as possible. The hotel is in an excellent and super trendy location should your trip be for pleasure rather than business. I hope to stay in Sydney next season and I'll definitely be choosing this hotel <3

The Medusa was the highlight of my weeklong three city trip to Australia. Located in a backstreet neighborhood with tons on trendy restraurant's and coffee shops. The front looks like an old city walk up. Inside, the reception is what was the home's living room but with wooden snakes coming out of the bottom of fireplace - made me a chuckle when I saw them. My room was on the first floor, clean and comfy with a patio door view of the inner courtyard water feature and patio. The room is equipped with USB sockets. I liked the whole vibe of the place and especially the warm and personable welcome by Luke.

Stayed here for three nights while in Sydney for a wedding with my wife. Only $10 uber from the CBD. In an awesome location with loads of awesome places to eat & drink within a 5min walk of the hotel. Rooms are nice & clean, good size if you're in town and not spending the whole day in your room. Staff were fantastic.

We adore the place and the attentive staff Luke & Jess you are stars!- So much more than your average boutique hotel- its an experience!Gorgeous unique property and fab everything-highly recommended! We will always come back xx
