Map and Directions


If you are walking from the famous big Coca-Cola sign at William St then facing the sign turn to your left and head into the heart of Kings Cross along Darlinghurst Rd, depending on which side of the street you are on continue until you reach the pedestrian (Zebra) crossing, if you are standing outside the kebab shop turn right down Roslyn St and about 20m you are at our front door, otherwise if you are standing near "the Sugar Mill" bar cross the crossing and continue straight ahead 20m to our front door. Head up the stairs to reception where we'll get you checked in and in your room so you can head out and explore Sydney.

Our entrance is located next to the money exchange on Roslyn Street, just around the corner off Darlinghurst Road. We have a bright red door.

We do not offer our own shuttle but the 'Sydney City Shuttle' from the airport is the cheapest transport they run every half hour and you can buy the ticket at the Airport for 12 dollars.

A taxi from the airport will cost minimum $35 on a good run but can be $50 or more on a bad run. Or the train is 17 dollars.
