It´s perfect place for enjoy with friends. The hotel is located in the best famous street in Balmain. This place is close for everything, transports, supermarkets, a lot of stores and boutiques. Easy to go and back.

I stayed here for a week ($300) and it was honestly an awful experience. Cockroaches, spiders you name it.

Bathrooms were filthy, I had to wear thongs when showering. Please... More

Gloucestershire, U.K. We have stayed a couple of times at the balmain Lodge on Darling St and had a great time. This is kind of a Motel type thing with our room having a basic kitchen and an en suite bathroom, but not all of the rooms are the same, some have a shared bathroom and toilet etc. We had... More

Staying in Balmain

A stroll down Darling Street will take you on a tour of coffee shops, boutique delicatessens and shops offering wholefood products and organic cuisines. Yoga studios abound, and live music emanates from the hotels at night. As the place where the Australian Labor Party formed in 1891, Balmain has commonly been known for its “working class culture”.
