        Location is good, close to must see places in Sydney. Highly recommended.”

        Luke, the receptionist is very nice and accomodating. Our room was upgraded for some reason and it felt that they show concern to their guests. I like the location as it is close to all must-see places in Sydney. My hubby is so fussy about hotel beds and we both love the bed because it is so comfortable, we ended up staying for one more night than our original stay. I would highly recommend this hotel. A lot of cafe selection nearby.

        This boutique hotel nestled in Darlinghurst had everything I needed, including wonderful staff. The aesop products in the bathroom, and view over the pool made my stay. As did the quality of care the staff provided - helping with breakfast recommendations, umbrellas in the rain and general neighbourhood tips. The rooms were clean, all amenities were great. Look forward to staying again.

        Luke on reception was friendly and welcoming, offering to take my bag upstairs and happy for a chat. The room was quite small but the bed very comfy. The room decor could do with an update and some new paint wouldn't go astray. Its was, however, very good value for money.

        Boutique, well managed, will stay again”

        A charming boutique hotel in the centre of Darlinghurst/Potts Point. Normally I prefer to stay by the beaches in Sydney. This time needed to stay in Darlinghurst - so chose the Medusa. It is a lovely, well organised, well run, boutique hotel. Rooms are a good size with comfortable bed. Bathroom was very big (in fact would have been better if bathroom was a bit smaller and room a bit larger). Rooms were quiet. Hotel is surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants. Note - stairs to get to front door of hotel and to get to room. Thus not suitable for less abled. Is boutique in style meaning no gym or work out area.

        Treat yourself ”

        Wonderful boutique hotel experience, the lobby will enthral you like Medusa herself. Love how they turned on the little radio with classical music when you first enter the room to give it a more mysterious, gothic vibe. Rooms are modern tho, and beds are comfy. Finding Aesop products in the bathroom was a nice surprise. One thing was that there weren't any lifts, but the guy at the receptionist was kind enough to carry my heavy luggage up the stairs. I can't remember his name, but I do remember calling him The Doctor. And just like the TARDIS, the Medusa Hotel has more to offer than meets the eye.
