Overnight stay in Sydney in a wonderful hotel, with great views over the city in a perfect location, a short walk to the city or via the nearby Kings Cross Train Station. I had booked a standard room, but upon my arrival, I was upgraded to a penthouse room, which was very generous, contemporary, clean and beautiful. High up over...

What shocked me the most was to hear how noisy and old was the air conditioning system in the room: the last time I heard that kind of noise was in a backpackers in Myanmar. The room wasn't really clean, especially the bathroom and under the chair. You can see the picture attached. Not even a complementary bottle of water...

Thank Camille F
Management response:

Dear Camille F I am disappointed we were unable to meet your expectations, and your comments regarding the cleaning have already been discussed with the housekeeping team. We are in the final stages of our refurbishment, part of which is addressing any air conditioning plant issues such as noisy units. As the hotel was only open in 2007, the unit's...

I visited Larmont with my wife and two year old son. After traveling for 20 hours we arrived to the hotel around 10am, and the receptionist told us that our room wouldn't be ready until 1.30pm. I think the staff could see how exhausted (and dirty?) we were, so they offered us to take a shower and gave us some...

Great Hotel! The Larmont boasts an great location, friendly staff and great value. It has just undergone a refurb and the hotel is looking great! Such a convenient location in a trendy area with so much at your doorstep! When visiting Sydney, definitely consider this hotel (even has pet friendly rooms!)

Dear Helena Thank you for your positive comments, and so glad to hear that you love the newly refurbished rooms. We will be reopening the restaurant next month to finalise the refurbishment, and we are all very excited with how it is looking. We are very spoilt with the location, and it just gets better and better. Hope to see...

Hotel has an interesting concept since all the services are pretty much outsourced, i.e. hotel itself has basically only reception + rooms. For the breakfast, you need to walk maybe a hundred meters to a cafe nearby and if you want to go for a gym, you need to walk 50 meters to a nearby fitness center (which is by...

Dear Jussi Thank you for your feedback, I would like to give you some insight into the hotel and its facilities. The restaurant we use for breakfast is a temporary measure as we look to reopen the restaurant in our hotel in January 2017. A previous tenant decided to vacate and we have decided to take this on ourselves, which...

The room was a reasonable size with a king size bed. The bathroom door has hard to open and bathroom had a unpleasant odour (both reported to morning staff). The price was reasonable and location was ideal for the event we were attending. Room had blackout blinds.

Management response:

Dear Sarah We are in the process of servicing all the large glass sliding doors for all bathrooms and this will eliminate any issues. We have also requested housekeeping introduce some preventative maintenance of the drainage on a regular basis to avoid any unpleasant odours. Hopefully we will see you back at Larmont Sydney very soon. Best regards Michael Sheridan

The boutique Larmont Hotel, in its various re-envisionments, has long been a favorite go-to business accommodation for me. The Lamont was most recently the Diamant, which was formed by the lobby and building that was split off from the original Hyatt behind the iconic giant Coca-Cola sign. The tower became the Millenium Hotel prior to the Sydney 2000 Olympics, and...

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.
