Apart from that, i found the staff very helpful, the rooms cosy and quiet, and the location to be amazing. Will be perfect for people traveling together seeing that there's loads of cool restaurants/bars there. One suggestion would be for them to broaden the range of dishes in roam service menu.

    I absolutely loved this hotel. The room was gorgeous, modern and spacious. We received complimentary T2 tea and cookies at bed time, which was a really nice touch. The bed was comfortable, had absolutely no issues falling asleep the one night that we stayed. Staff were friendly. Only bad point I have was finding the entrance, but to be honest, this has no effect on our time here. Would 100% stay here again, we loved it.

The front desk staff was exceptional, they were friendly, helpful and just overall wonderful people (we really loved Adrienne in particular!) We dined based on their recommendations and had some amazing meals. The room was beautiful, clean, spacious and well appointed. Next time we're in Sydney we won't stay anywhere else. Can't wait to come back and visit.

    Plush luxury with a twist”

    There's nothing new in hospitality - except when it's done to perfection. You get everything you expect but it's delivered better, seamlessly, perfectly and with deep pleasure here. We loved the design-led interior, the original contents of the mini-bar, the Apple TV selection, the magazines, the bed, the linen, the bathroom. Worth coming for your special weekend. Plus the people in the upstairs bar on a Friday night have to be seen to be believed..... gold lame jump suit with shorts and high heels!!

    boutique hôtel at its best”

    location, bars, staff

    Love this boutique hotel. Staff were friendly, bars especially palmer & co are awesome. If there are a few negative points: rooms are dark as they have no view (and sydney is about the view e.g. stay at the interconti). understaffed during breakfast hours...took forever. You'll need to walk around the block to get a taxi. Saw three type of rooms, it is worth spending a bit more money for a better room.

    Funky design, great location, getting tired”

    Location, room size, great breakfast

    The Establishment is a great boutique hotel in the centre of Sydney at a very reasonable price. rooms are large, staff all very friendly and personable. Only downsides are the hotel is getting slightly tired (Shower flooded the bathroom as the door seal wasnt working, symbols worn off the light swtiches, etc). Also I was on a low floor and woken at 5.20 every morning by delivery trucks - best get a higher floor. The rooms and common areas are all a little dark, however the design is 'cool', the breakfast menu is great, and the restaurant and bar seem very popular. Its also right in the centre so very convenient for business meetings or sightseeing.

    restaurants around the vicinity, luxury bathroom, turndown service

    it is a great place to stay for a weekend of eating/drinking at the different restaurants/bars that the Merivale group has to offer. the staff were excellent in helping us make reservations. the bath was also lush, to say the least. we booked the establishment room and requested the highest floor, of which they happily obliged. however, there was a party next door on the second night - very very uncomfortable with constant shouting and laughing as well as music, slamming of doors, the drunk ringing of our doorbell, etc. we asked the staff twice to quieten the party down as it was well after 1am but there was no change in the noise levels. the staff also did not offer any form of apology or compensation for our very uncomfortable night - something that should be expected from a luxury boutique hotel that offers personal service. anyway, overall it is great to dine and enjoy the room and the bath but we were underwhelmed by customer service and the noise factor.

    Amazing bathroom

    We stayed in a studio room overnight and we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. The bathroom was really big for a studio room with a huge shower, lovely deep bath and double basins. The design of the room was a great mix between original exposed beams, timber floors and modern decor and soft furnishings. The only downside was the extremely loud music that played until the early hours of the morning even though it was a mid week stay. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

    Exceptional”

    I absolutely loved this hotel. The room was gorgeous, modern and spacious. We received complimentary T2 tea and cookies at bed time, which was a really nice touch. The bed was comfortable, had absolutely no issues falling asleep the one night that we stayed. Staff were friendly. Only bad point I have was finding the entrance, but to be honest, this has no effect on our time here. Would 100% stay here again, we loved it.

    What a great place!!”

    We had such a wonderful stay at the Establishment Hotel! The front desk staff was exceptional, they were friendly, helpful and just overall wonderful people (we really loved Adrienne in particular!) We dined based on their recommendations and had some amazing meals. The room was beautiful, clean, spacious and well appointed. Next time we're in Sydney we won't stay anywhere else. Can't wait to come back and visit.

    Plush luxury with a twist”

    There's nothing new in hospitality - except when it's done to perfection. You get everything you expect but it's delivered better, seamlessly, perfectly and with deep pleasure here. We loved the design-led interior, the original contents of the mini-bar, the Apple TV selection, the magazines, the bed, the linen, the bathroom. Worth coming for your special weekend. Plus the people in the upstairs bar on a Friday night have to be seen to be believed..... gold lame jump suit with shorts and high heels!!

    boutique hôtel at its best”

    location, bars, staff

    Love this boutique hotel. Staff were friendly, bars especially palmer & co are awesome. If there are a few negative points: rooms are dark as they have no view (and sydney is about the view e.g. stay at the interconti). understaffed during breakfast hours...took forever. You'll need to walk around the block to get a taxi. Saw three type of rooms, it is worth spending a bit more money for a better room.

    Funky design, great location, getting tired”

    Location, room size, great breakfast

    The Establishment is a great boutique hotel in the centre of Sydney at a very reasonable price. rooms are large, staff all very friendly and personable. Only downsides are the hotel is getting slightly tired (Shower flooded the bathroom as the door seal wasnt working, symbols worn off the light swtiches, etc). Also I was on a low floor and woken at 5.20 every morning by delivery trucks - best get a higher floor. The rooms and common areas are all a little dark, however the design is 'cool', the breakfast menu is great, and the restaurant and bar seem very popular. Its also right in the centre so very convenient for business meetings or sightseeing.

    just our luck...”

    restaurants around the vicinity, luxury bathroom, turndown service

    it is a great place to stay for a weekend of eating/drinking at the different restaurants/bars that the Merivale group has to offer. the staff were excellent in helping us make reservations. the bath was also lush, to say the least. we booked the establishment room and requested the highest floor, of which they happily obliged. however, there was a party next door on the second night - very very uncomfortable with constant shouting and laughing as well as music, slamming of doors, the drunk ringing of our doorbell, etc. we asked the staff twice to quieten the party down as it was well after 1am but there was no change in the noise levels. the staff also did not offer any form of apology or compensation for our very uncomfortable night - something that should be expected from a luxury boutique hotel that offers personal service. anyway, overall it is great to dine and enjoy the room and the bath but we were underwhelmed by customer service and the noise factor.

    Amazing location and very large rooms”

    very central about 5-8 mins walking to the city center

    This hotel is amazing! loved the room and decor very modern clean and extremely large. The breakfast was pretty good but pricey but then everything in Sydney is. Very central location you can walk to Westfield center and Myer the closest train station is only 5 mins walk by walking so no need for taxis.

    Funky ”

    Amazing bathroom

    We stayed in a studio room overnight and we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. The bathroom was really big for a studio room with a huge shower, lovely deep bath and double basins. The design of the room was a great mix between original exposed beams, timber floors and modern decor and soft furnishings. The only downside was the extremely loud music that played until the early hours of the morning even though it was a mid week stay. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

    Friendly staff, great location in the heart of the city.

    We stayed for our wedding anniversary. Because the Establishment is connected to a range of bars and restaurants you can gain access internally. No lines! The room had DVD and IPod connections. IPad also supplied. Short walk to the Rocks area for a good breakfast in the morning

    Great Location and lovely room”

    The size of the room was fantastic and so fresh and clean

    We booked this hotel for a long weekend get-away. It was exactly as described. The i-pad and in-room sound system are great features. The i-pad allowed us to research restaurants etc so was very useful. We ate breakfast at the hotel each morning and were delighted with the choices available and the quality of the food. We would stay here again.

    Very stylish, personal and friendly service, great location!

    we stayed 3 nights at the establishment and we had a great time. the rooms are stylish, big and clean. the staff is very friendly and helpful. at first the entrance in a small lane isn't that easy to find but from the hotel you can walk to circular quay from where you can reach any destination by boat, bus, taxi or train. you can walk to the docks or george street.
