Nice boutique hotel, good value for money”

The location is exceptional. Tucked in one of the quiet streets of Potts Point, the place is charming and not at all touristy. Lots of quaint cafes and bars and yetclose enough to King's Cross if you want a more 'action' packed night out. Receptionists were very good. Shout out to Oksana, Claire and Zack. Very accomodating and went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as ever. Our room was small, yes, but very clean. Tip: if you're too tired to go out in the evening. You can just buy a bottle of wine and cheese at the nearest Metro (Woolsworth) and chill yourself at the terrace tables and people watch as the day winds down.

Outstanding expericence in Sydney”

Our stay at hotel Challis exceeded our expectation. The hotel is conveniently located near Kings Cross, with nice restaurants, hip brunch places and grocery stores (coles, metro) nearby. Value for money is great. The rooms are quite small (which was indicated in the hotel description), but still spacious enough for us and our luggage. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We will visit again!!

A Gem in a great location”

This little hotel is a gem in Potts Point. It's a great location - walking distance to restaurants, train. The staff were lovely. The rooms were spotless. The bed and pillows were very comfy. The rooms are small, but if you are not looking to spend a lot of time in your room, it was fabulous. I'd definitely stay again. Wendy

First time visit to Sydney ”

We found the location excellent. Good facilities nearby eg supermarket and restaurants. Easy walking distance to Kings Cross station. The hotel staff very helpful especially Rudi who went out of his way to assist. Although the room was on the small side the bed was so very comfortable and made up with good linen. We would definitely stay there again and recommend Hotel Challis.
