Boutique chic on a budget in deepest Darlinghurst

This much-hyped address in trendy Darlinghurst – Sydney’s answer to SoHo – offers a slice of urban living smack in the middle of a vibrant quarter packed with boutiques and voguish bars. Everything here has been pared down to the stylish essentials.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Chic and informal dining awaits at Kell’s Kitchen, with its mirrored walls and funky frescoes. Chef Eric Tan’s menus give classic favourites a new twist: try the wagyu beef mini burgers or roasted miso butterfish. Down a cocktail at the bar to kick things off. You can order an in-room continental breakfast here, or simply stroll across the street to the Darlinghurst cafe strip.

Continental breakfast is served in your room (charged extra). You’re also just across the street from some trendy breakfast cafes.

Room service
Available morning and evening.


See & Do
Wander through Darlinghurst – Sydney’s answer to SoHo – and mix with eclectic café society. Stroll past Paddington’s galleries and pretty Victorian terraces, or take in the antique shops of nearby Woollahra.

Be sure to check off the city’s big sights: book a front-of-house tour of the Sydney Opera House, or a Bridgeclimb to get a bird’s eye view of the famous harbour. Chug across the waves on a ferry for some of the best city vistas, or head for the surf of Bondi and South Head, near Watson’s Bay. Take a guided tour of Sydney’s old colonial buildings or have a picnic in Centennial park.
