Everything about this hotel exudes coolness. The suites are the epitome of modern design in Sydney. The bars and restaurants in the complex are terrific. Even the hotel service is a little cool, not much warmth but it seems to suit the somewhat detached feeling of the place. I had originally titled this review "Style over Substance" but subsequently saw...

The establishment markets itself as a boutique alternative hotel and that's exactly what we found. It's not a standard generic 5 star hotel, the setting is unique and the rooms certainly different. The staff fit the image with a very competent and interested approach, there is a confident attitude, but I will take that any day over the gushing blandness...

I agree with a previous reviewer that the place lacks warmth as it was too dark for my likings. Nevertheless, I loved the layout of the rooms and the bed was very comfortable. I would’ve slept like a baby if it wasn’t for all the noises. The staff was nice and the location of the hotel was just perfect.

Billed as THE place to stay, the establishment was a big disappointment. We received a lukewarm welcome, no one offered to help with our bags or explain the gadgetry in our room. Despite billing itself as a design hotel no one had put any thought into having a plug near a mirror for hair drying. The room was too dark,...

A lovely city escape for my birthday at the Establishment Hotel recently. Located in a great spot to access all areas of the city. The room was beautifully furnished with the modern inclusions sitting well against the old building. Dining at Est capped off a well planned break by my husband. Have heard that it can be noisy but as...

I just returned from 17 night stay at the Establishment and wish I could be back there right now :) The rooms are opulent and comfortable at the same time, and the housekeeping and turndown service kept everything spic and span. I thought the bed was particularly comfortable and enjoyed waking up in a sea of pillows. I used the...

I've never checked out of hotel early, but in retrospect I wish I'd left earlier. I arrived on a Friday and that evening thought that I'd accidentally turned the stereo system in my room on. It was actually the adjacent room's music. I had read about the noise problems and asked in advance for a room away from the nightclub,...

We have stayed here five times now and we just love this hotel. You feel like you are in your own apartment in New York - we love the Bvulgari beauty products, the apple TV, bath, the proximity, the bar down stairs, decor in the rooms, the Bose music selection. We just want to keep coming back.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
