Booked this hotel last minute through hotelstonight app. I expected much better for the price, was very disappointed. The room (3rd FL) was shabby, furniture was scratched up, carpet was dirty, the TV was broken (had lines running through the display) and was poorly mounted on the wall. The bathroom had a mildew smell and didnt feel clean. All this... More

I have stayed here a number of times and reviewed this hotel before, not for a while though and there have been a few changes. Ownership of this hotel changed last year and the new owners are carrying out some refurbishments, a bit surprising as I did not think it really needed it. I have always liked the hotel and... More

Our room looked nothing like the rooms in the pictures, but it was still pretty nice. The bathroom was a little small, but I loved the shower (rain shower head), and the shelf for toiletries behind the sink area. The bed and linens were very nice and comfy/cozy. We had a direct view of the bridge and opera house (although... More

I booked this from the UK before I arrived in Sydney. We were only in Sydney for 3 nights. This hotel seemed a fair price compared to many others that are "more central". I loved the location. It may have been "on the edge" of the Red Light District, but that is part and parcel of the history of the... More

Dear Dave Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us.

I have stayed here multiple times but never reviewed this hotel. I always opt to stay around here close to restaurants, bars and the eastern suburbs.

Hi Larrymull Being a resident of the Eastern Suburbs, and working in Potts Point, I am in agreement that there is so much to choose from in this part of Sydney that sometimes you don't know where to start.

The hotel was in a decent location, very close to Kings Cross station which you can take to get to the main attractions or about a 20 minute walk to the botanical gardens.

Dear AnonymousNS Thank you for such a detailed response, this will be most helpful for guest not familiar with Sydney.

Upon first look, it seems like a higher end hotel. It's actually in need of some updating and there was construction happening on my floor. It wasn't too loud, but beware. The room was large and stylish- the in-room iPad was a really unique touch. The toiletries were good quality, but the bathroom tile grout needed a good scrub. It's... More

We stayed for two nights in the Larmont and did not have a car during our stay. We walked to all the big sights in and around Sydney Harbor. The hotel is about 15-20 minutes from that area, so it is fine to walk if you are in good shape, but may be too far if you are not used... More

Myself and my family were greeted by the staff in a friendly matter, the staff kindly and willingly helped us with our room as well as with directions around sydney, the rooms were extremely fresh and very clean. The king size bed was very comfortable. The location was central and easy to get around. The room had everything needed.

Staying in Kings Cross

Neighbourhood Profile
Kings Cross
Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The Cross," Sydney's red light district. These new rules have encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the area, as well as organic markets on Saturdays. The area's nightclubs are still popular with youngsters, however, who will dance to the early morning hours on weekend nights. There are plenty of artifacts from Kings Cross' shady past when gangsters and liquor houses owned the place. Today, one can still find a variety of adult entertainment venues in this evolving area.
