A little gem in the heart of Sydney
Had a fabulous stay at the Kirketon Hotel. A great location for walking to nearby Surrey Hills with its eclectic shops and restaurants. A real Neighbourhood feel with the extra benefit of being on top of the best cocktail bar I have visited. Not to be missed! Only downside was no lift so we had to lug our bags (no help either) up three flights of stairs. Otherwise a perfect stay. Would definitely return.

Dark, unclean rooms
While the location of the kirketon is incredibly convenient for city-goers, and the staff were friendly towards us, from a hygiene stand point I would not recommend this hotel. The lighting in the small rooms is very dark, and I feel this gives way for the cleaning to be lacking. There was random hair throughout the bathroom, and a dead spider in the shower! The carpets also felt grubby when you walked on it barefoot. If the cleaning standard was higher in the rooms this would be a great hotel.

A very short walk from Kings Cross station and near to plenty of eateries. The staff are friendly, and the room is clean. TV in the room equipped with plenty of channels if you'd like to stay in for a bit to hide out from the cold.

Great Little Hotel
This place is great value - in fact, excellent value. Funky and basic at a good price right near Kings Cross (1 minute walk) and Oxford Street (10 mins walk). Will definitely stay again

The room was infested with cockroaches. I killed 10 small cockroaches and complained twice to reception, however I did not get a response. The bathroom was not clean with lots of hair on the floor.
