If you want a peaceful and quiet environment then this is not the hotel for you! If you manage to get level two, you'll be able to hear everyone in the pool/spa area.

We stayed here for four nights. The staff were very nice, it was quiet, and the location was excellent. The indoor pool was also excellent (particularly on a rainy day). We traveled with our two children (3 and 5) and the experience was fantastic.

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
