Hotel Harry, Sydney

Christopher Beanland finds a charming but hip hideout in the heart of Sydney


If you love a touch of Twin Peaks then Hotel Harry is the place for you. It’s got style, charm and quirkiness in buckets. There’s a fish tank by reception and a creaking old lift that must have seen some things over the years. The building is heritage listed and more than 100 years old — and it’s packed with original details from the time when Sydney was, shall we say, a little more lawless. All of this adds up to make the modern, minimal, calming and super-hip rooms upstairs even more of a surprise. Lovely bathrooms and soft beds make it very cosy here. You’ll have a comfy night’s sleep in the heart of Sydney, close to Surry Hills’ bars, Hyde Park, the shops of the CBD and Central Station. With just 20 rooms, it’s an intimate and friendly bolthole. And downstairs, Harpoon Harry is the perfect place to grab a bite of Mexican food, or a mean chicken schnitzel.

Hotel Harry, 40-44 Wentworth Avenue, Surry Hills, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Rooms from £95
