      Backpackers Only


      This hotel is the first hotel in Australia that I've stayed in that doesn't provide soap. At the price, that came as a shock - OK if you're backpacking, but not for a business traveller. Although the bed was comfortable and the TV worked fine, the room had a number of problems. There was no shower curtain, so the water goes everywhere and the hot water tap on the hand basin leaked (had to turn it off to get any sleep). The room had a thin door to the roof garden and as there were 3 backpackers outside until very late, the noise was a big problem. There were lots of other problems in the room, but, basically, this hotel is poor value for money and not the place to go if you want a good nights sleep.

      Didnt work for us


      Maybe I just didnt "get it", maybe I was spoilt by 3 weeks in Thailand, but I was dissapointed with my stay here.

      The room would have been nice when it was opened but now was worse for wear, not enough lights, mirrors hard to use, no handtowels or face cloths. The breakfast buffet was minimal, no fruit (in Australia no fruit?)

      And there was junk stored in odd corners. Yes I know boutique hotels are supposed to be a bit quirky but this just felt like amateur hour.

      I dont know what...maybe 'class'


      A lovely warm welcoming atmosphere,a great feel,as opposed to the sterility of others....and even a fabulous.

      Excellent Hotel!


      Excellent hotel in a great area of sydney! On a busyish road but suprisingly quiet at night!

      Nice large rooms and a relaxed atmosphere!

      You will not find a better hotel for AUS $90 anywhere in sydney!

      Loved it!

      Great hotel and great location


      I loved this hotel and loved the location. It was walking distance to plenty of restaurants and bars. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and always had great suggestions for dining. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. I wish it had an in-room safe but other than that I had no complaints. I'd recommend this hotel to my friends and I'd stay here again.

      Cute with loadz of charm


      we were reccommeded to stay at the altamont thru friends..we normally stay at larger hotels but decided to give it a chance.....the hotel has so much character...our room was large and airy with a cute little courtyard which apparantly is hard to find in sydney.....the staff were very helpful and made us feel right at home.....also the location is superb...central to everything worth seeing and doing in sydney...we stayed for two weeks and would defintely recommend....

      Give This Place a Big Miss


      This place is SHOCKING! Totally incompetent staff from booking right through to check out. The whole place smells of cigarette smoke and is very dirty. The room I stayed in had walls crumbling off and were covered in mildew, the blinds are litterally brown with water stains, the bed had springs sticking right through and only 1 lamp worked in the whole room. Dont do it! Sure the location is great, but this place is gross!



      A gorgeous little hotel located in the heart of Darlinghurst.The decor is really interesting and comfortable, it has Indonesian furniture throughout and a stunning rooftop garden.

      The best part was the price and the warm service offered by the management.

      Highly reccommend to all types of travellers.

      Simply BAD


      I booked this hotel one year in advance based on the write ups I had read. One month for arrival I was contacted and forced to prepay although I was told that my reservation would be held with a credit card until check in time.

      I paid as requested, but when I arrived the room was not as advertised.

      The bathroom was covered in mold, the shower leaked into the main bathroom area and the carpet was filthy.

      They CHAINED the main entrance after 8PM because they claim that reception is then closed. At the same time they do not allow any incoming phone calls.

      I requested a refund for the balance of my stay but the refused to refund me. This is more like a youth hostel than a high end hotel as advertised.

      The most unique friendly well priced boutique hotel


      This little hotel is perhaps the friendliest, best located , best priced and generally really cool boutique hotel that i have stayed at and I see alot being a travel writer.I highly reccommend it, and a tip, negotiate a great rate with the management,they encourage it.Enjoy

      Now about Sydney. Our hotel is in downtown so after getting settled we walked to the waterfront, a few blocks away. They have a ...

Jeff was very found of this large rural town as their average summer temperature is 26 degrees. He said he would love to live here in summer, then travel north to Queensland for winter as Glen Innes only gets to 13.5 degrees during the day and around one degree at night. We walked around ...

      ... to Jamberoo Mountain Road - stunning scenery. We found our cottage just out of Berrima and the kids were very excited to see bunnies on the road and in the fields. We were perhaps less excited as we realized that there were dozens of them, in plague proportions.... And there were kangaroos and wallabies in the fields. Off to explore Berrima - extremely pretty, in the golden glow of sunset. The town was established in the Georgian era of the early 1800s ...

      After picking us up at the airport, Nic and Will whisked us into the city for a brief look round en route to the house. So at 9.00am we were all stood across from the Opera House. Great to see them all in the flesh.
      The house is massive with lovel front balconies looking to the front and across Woodford Bay. A great view to wake up to!.
      Sun shining, usual afternoon Sydney breeze to help keep cool.

Weather, blue skies I would say it was about 25 degrees and after having a spot lunch on the beach front we have settled down for a well deserved rest (photo to follow) on the way home I decided I needed a hat, as we all know I am thinning a bit up top you will now see this swede cover in all of the photos for the rest of the trip. From here we pretty much just headed back as we were both ...
