    Superb location, historic character, and the chance (if I wasn't so busy!) to enjoy using the lounge and front verandah.

    A little taste of ‘Paris’ in Sydney

    Fantastic location surrounded by boutique shops , cafes and restaurants but noisy in the morning- renovators and garbage trucks contributing to the noise pollution.Room was way too small .

    Loved the balcony to sit on. Room is on the small side . Could do with removing the bench at the end of the bed to increase space.. shower is tiny , you wouldn’t want to be a larger person no room to move . Shower alcove leaked so much that bath mat and floor became very wet. Great part of Potts Point to stay. Would stay again

    Great hotel in the perfect area

    Great place to stay, perfect location being so close to kings cross station, but can also walk to the opera house and other attractions through the botanical gardens. Very beautiful and quiet area to stay in.

    We loved the location it was comfortable and very clean. We were able to take the lift to our room on the 4th floor and climb the one set of stairs easily with overnight bags. Some people might find the extra flight of stairs inconvenient. Staff were very welcoming and helpful.

    The location was excellent. The room was very small...only enough for one person. No amenities. But there were excellent cafes nearby.
