When staying away from home I always adore staying in smaller boutique hotels that are individualised. As a result I am always surprised. I stayed here for 3 nights. This hotel was no exception and a truly Delightful surprise. Located down a small lane way tucked away in inner Sydney. A large heavy wooden door with a brass handle leads...

Stayed three nights on vacation visiting family in Sydney. When we arrived, the taxi took us to a tiny "alley way" and the only thing that indicated that it was a hotel was a large door with brass sign indicating the hotel name. Behind the door was a cosy small lounge and greeting us were 2 very friendly and welcoming...

Cannot rave about the staff enough--particularly Dayo, who went out of his way to help us in every possible way. Rooms were spacious and lovely--we were on the fifth floor. Comfortable bed, and wonderful rainfall shower (although we did have a problem with it flooding the bathroom floor until we realized we were just turning on the water too forcefully)....

Had two separate stays to Establishment Hotel in July and August 2016. My preferred place to stay in Sydney for the following reasons: - free and easy connection to wifi made it easy to work from room; - reception staff (Adriane and co) make everything easy with this hotel; - location in CBD and top restaurants within the complex; and...

Staff were professional, courteous and very helpful throughout stay. While we had already had lunch and dinner engagements, staff were very helpful with recommendations. On arrival found that had been upgraded which was a lovely surprise ... The hotel itself is unique, with a lovely ambience. It also smells wonderful! The room was large, plenty of muted natural light and...

Another brilliant lunchtime function run by the University of New South Wales Rugby Club on the first floor of the Establishment. The ambiance is wonderful, the food was wonderful, the service friendly and effective. Already looking forward to going again next year.

The polished stone facade of the hotel's central pivot front door gives some indication of what to expect from this boutique establishment tucked away in one of Sydney's CBD lanes; trendy minimalist decor with a calming Asian vibe; subdued lighting highlighting the massive wooden beams and brickwork reminders of the buildings' former warehouse life; the soft waft of burning incense...

My wife and I spent four nights at the hotel and found the location great as very central; however the late night revellers was disconcerting when trying to get a good nights rest. They include ear plugs in the rooms due to the outside noise. The room was very comfortable and staff very helpful.

Stayed at the hotel a long time ago. Was surprised to see that it has been well maintained. Though I have to warn those who have low noise tolerance..this might not be your cup of tea. The ear plugs they provide is a hint. Lights could be a bit brighter in some areas. But overall, a very nice stay.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
