Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.

Hi K B, Thank you so much for sharing your experience at 1831 Boutique Hotel and we are very happy to hear you enjoyed your visit! Our Reception and Housekeeping teams continually ensure you are comfortable during your stay with us, so it's always wonderful that their hard work does not go unnoticed. We are operating within a heritage-listed building and just like you, we absolutely love the character of the staircase and period features. Definitely beats going to the gym, although the lifts are always there just in case! We really hope to welcome you back again soon, so please email me at jenna@1831.com.au if I can help to organise your trip back to Sydney. Warm regards, Jenna Front Office Manager

The hotel was clean and well located. The rooms were sound proofed and I had a good night sleep. The hotels location in George street was close to paddy market and central station. The staff were friendly and I would likely stay here again.

Shuttles do run from the airport into the city. You could also catch the airport train to Central station and the hotel is a short 5 minute walk from there. The train is the cheaper option and they run frequently.

Hi, Breakfast is a boxed breakfast which can be added at an additional cost of $10ppn. Unfortunately we do not have an onsite restaurant, however there are ample great choices and places we can recommend just a stones throw from the hotel.
