The Maisonette is in a lovely spot, fairly close to Kings Cross station & an easy walk down to the Botanic Gardens & Art Gallery. Eating is easy with a good choice of restaurants right outside the front door & across the road. However, for the price charged, I feel that we should have been provided with a hand towel...

Stayed 3 nights in this boutique hotel in the wonderful neighborhood of Potts Point. The hotel was clean, well located (not too far from Kings Crossing metro stop), but the rooms were on the small end. The price was excellent for such a nice area of Sydney. Easy to get to the central business district and Opera House as well...

Great little hotel, very cute and clean. Friendly staff, easy location to look around Sydney and find public transport. My partner and I loved the stay, and would certainly if given the opportunity stay at The Maisonette again.

Excellent location, friendly staff and clean comfortable room. Overall great value for money. Train to city was only 10 minutes away or else it was an easy walking distance to city and harbour. We especially enjoyed the Italian pastries and coffee just over the road. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is small and cozy. Our room was spacious, plenty of room for things. The only thing is that it's difficult to carry the suitcases up the steep staircase. The staff was wonderful, friendly and super helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Very good location and friendly staff. Was not expecting to carry lots of heavy luggage up many narrow stairs.. also the bathrooms are tiny. A nice walk to the botanical gardens and harbour and lots of great eating places nearby.

Overall this is a great hotel in an excellent location. There are lots of restaurants and cafes within walking distance and within a varied price range. $6 breakfast at many of the cafes. The walk to Circular Quay took 25 minutes through the botanical gardens. The train trip back bought us to within a 5 minute walk of the hotel....

Really liked the location of this area. About a 20 minute walk to Sydney Harbour. A laundry is nearby, good restaurants and eateries nearby. Short walking distance to Kings Cross train station. Bed was super comfortable. Bathroom was small but sufficient.

Perfect location!. Very accessible to public transportation. Very nice neighborhood..Staff was very nice and helpful. Need to book ahead of time. The only downside was, there's no staff on duty after 8 PM , but It's very safe.
