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.

The hotel is quite nice, service is very good. Room was large but for its target market probably could be a bit nicer but that is fussy. Mini bar range is excellent. The real issue is it seriously lacks sound proofing. Given how low down it is to street level, it is very noisy. The bed was average. For the...

What a fabulous hotel! Yes the tiny road and discreet entrance makes you wonder where you're going, but it's all part of the experience! Amazing room, incredibly well decorated, furnished and comfortable. The staff were fabulous, I just wish I'd stayed longer!

I was absolutely blown away by the rooms at the Establishment Hotel, they are spacious, romantic and just perfect. We were happy to get straight into Mr Wongs for lunch thanks to the hotel staff and didn't have to wait at all. Only negative was some noise in the room from the nightclub down stairs at about 1.30 am, didn't...

The hotel is a lovely, modern, luxury boutique hotel. Rooms are massive with loads of space, but good technology to keep you company. The beds are amazing and you just sink into the marvellous pillows. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean. The staff are wonderfully friendly and helped me with every query, even getting a last minute booking at the famous...

I stay at the Establishment most weeks for work. My stays are either one or tow nights. This hotel is consistently excellent. the rooms are well set out and extremely comfortable.

Our stay at the Establishment Hotel was nothing but perfect. The staff is exceptionally friendly, the location is great, and the rooms are spacious, modern and very comfortable. The hotel is in a bulding with architectural value which also houses Mr. Wong (an outstanding Chinese restaurant) and a couple of bars which were very popular Friday and Saturday nights. I...

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.
