Only few steps away from Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, the very funky yet affordable Establishment Hotel will place you right in the heart of the city.

  • And it would be fair to say that this place is very much part of the city pulse. Thanks to the several restaurants (some award winning), a number of bars and a nightclub it houses, Establishment Hotel has become a bit of hot spot for the locals.

    Whether tired by the city itself or cocktails in the many hotel bars, you will enjoy retiring to your ultra chic room, immaculately presented in demure colours and strikingly furnished with comfort in mind.

    Good to Know

    The only thing that you might have to forgive Establishment Hotel is the lack of views from most rooms.

    The Establishment bar ranks as the city’s longest which also goes for the queue that sometime forms in front its door. Luckily you as as a hotel guest can skip it.

    Eat & Drink

    But it is the Establishment Bar that brings sophisticated crowds of Sydney to the hotel. Queues are a common place but you, as a guest, will be able to skip them.
