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 dog..how fabulous.
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!
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.
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

... airport after picking up our bags and saying our goodbyes.
I write this from home on Sunday with a glass of red wine. The flight back was pretty good all things considered. Thomas was really a very good boy and managed with the restricted space very well. The A380 is a great plane that makes things as easy as possible if you are not the greatest flyer.
Back to work tomorrow with some amazing memories.
... from Circular Quay. Across the other side from where the boat gets in, you're on the ocean side at Watsons Gap. I happily passed some time watching the waves crashing below, before heading through part of the national park and round the coast. I walked up the beach at Camp Cove, and only looked down at the beach at Lady Bay. The pot bellied man wearing only a baseball cap, parading up and down the beach was a little off putting. It's not a ...
... that the views are awesome. Just let me say the Opera House is truly a beautiful building from every view point. We enjoyed a tour of the Opera house which was quite informative, we got into a number of the 'theatres' and our guide shared some of the more interesting antidotes about the place. For example, the tome a courier delivered a package on stage in the middle of a play, it wasn't part of the ...
... watch Montage of Heck, a film based around Kurt Cobain and his life; a throughly enjoyable film upon review, although a little personal from the sounds of things! Prior to this we'd looked at the route of our travels up the east coast and ventures down the centre of Australia as well which are now creeping up week by week! There's plenty to do and plenty to look forward to which will be a new experience once again after having been settled for a little while! Written by ...
... I must admit I hadn't realised how steep it was until we set off, at one point I was clutching the silver bar above my head,eyes closed and my knees pressing against the next seat in front of me!!!!!!!! after a time it didn't feel as bad,so I was able to look out but still held on very tightly to the silver bar.Within minutes we were at the bottom of the mountain!!!!!!! We had to wait for the rest of our group to descend before we followed Hayley, our guide along ...
