If you're tired of the standard travelers' rooms, this renovated Victorian terrace house may be just the tonic. Having undergone a massive conversion into 21st-century cool, it sports a decorating scheme of brash colors—blues, yellows, and creams splashed against reds—and furnishings (platform beds and chaise lounge) that might have come direct from a Milan design gallery. Every room is slightly different, has a kitchenette, and was recently fitted with a new flat
screen TV. Behind the glamour is a comfortable, well-run hotel with friendly, attentive staff. This is one of the few city hotels that welcome guests' dogs, and it's near many good restaurants.

The first few days of our first trip to Australia and we hadn't even thought about what we wanted to see. It didn't matter. The staff went out of their way to help, suggesting attractions, restaurants, tours and car hire. They made the phone calls and reservations and their suggestions were all excellent. The rooms are modern and stylish but the looks are not at the expense of comfort. What the bathroom lacked in size it made up for in the quality
of its toiletries. This small hotel was created from a townhouse. There is no dining room but there are good restaurants nearby and, around the corner, 'Bills'is one of the best places for breakfast in Sydney. We felt as if we had been staying with friends. We would stay there again.
