I had to go to St Vincents Hospital for an appointment so decided to stay at the Arts Hotel for convenience. The hotel was basic with a small simple lobby, an old lift and the rooms were basic but clean. My room fronted on to Oxford St so was noisy until about 10.00pm.

When it's not a holiday, you appreciate a smooth run. Opposite St Vincent's Hospital, lots of us out of towners stay here wondering when meals, laundry, etc 😂 will be back to normal! The staff ensure no complications with details. Even while having renos, they were able to assist with late arrivals, car parking, meals. The rooms are clean, spare...

We stayed here for four nights. It was very comfortable and quiet even though it's on busy Oxford Street. When I booked, I was assured that a four night booking of a Standard room would mean an automatic upgrade to a Garden Room so we were disappointed on arrival to find this hadn't happened and no Garden Room was available...

Booked at the last minute, to make a family visit, this family owned & run place is a gem. Every room has an art theme including original works of art instead of the bland corporate non-art of chain hotels. All rooms feature original art works, fancier room get bigger art works. Despite being in the cheapest category of room, I...

Reasonably well located: Paddington is a lovely area with very nice shops and cafes, good for breakfast. On a main road with direct bus routes into the city centre and out to Bondi. A short walk to Surry Hills, and a long walk to the city centre and Circular Quay but better to use the bus or a taxi. Views...

The location of this property is very good but the place itself is very modest. I would call it a city motel not hotel. Room very small, bed and inbuilt desk in room 109 takes up 3/4 of the room, bathroom tiny. No face washers, breakfast not available on site and no room service. But room was clean and linen...

We stayed 8 nights in a room away from busy Oxford Street and found it quiet and beds comfortable. St Vincent's is only a short walk away, so easily accessible if you have to be at St Vincent's for appointments or to be admitted. There is plenty to do around the area.
