This was a clean hotel, located in perfect location. the staff were friendly, my only issue was that I had a room downstairs which was close to the reception desk, therefore I could hear noise through the night from the reception area.

Great position and charming building. My problem was with the space in the room due to the king size bed in a small room. We had booked a queen. Also the step outside the bathroom was very tricky to navigate. Definitely only a one night stay in that room. I would like to stay again but I would check the room first.

My friend and I stayed two nights. We had a small but nice room in the first floor, that was clean and tidy. The hotel had a great location when exploring Sydney. Short walk to both the Opera House and the city, and bus almost on doorstep. Nice area with good connection to Kings Cross.

Hotel Challis, in Potts Point, is a lovely pair of old buildings that have been joined to make one hotel.

Challis is located very near the Cross if that is your thing (not mine) but there is plenty of REALLY good eating places nearby… even just a few metres down the street… good shopping and a weekend market is very nearby… and the CBD and major galleries are within walkable distance.

Some of the older review have not been particularly good, but from reading them and having just stayed here for 2 nights things are VERY different… there has been a COMPLETE modernisation of the entire hotel… the hallways, lift, common spaces, rooms, bathrooms… EVERYTHING… has been modernised and done in a very tasteful manner… even on only a 2 night stay there was daily room service (fresh towels and room cleaning)… The staff very very friendly and helpful.

Overall, definitely a hotel I would use again.
