If possible I would ask for the Paul street location as its much better than Bennett street for many reasons including: - much cleaner with pollished floor boards - better managed- barry runs...

My wife and I stayed in Sinclair s Bondi for 8 nights. It was a surprisingly upper class accommodation; the room was clean with a comfortable bed. Very good service, the staff was extremely attentive and helpful. Great location, close to the beach and shops. The rates were very reasonable.

“The queen sized room at the front was spacious, but had night traffic. The double room at the back was quieter in terms of traffic noise, but the walls were a bit thin, so you could hear your neighbours.”
