Fantastic location surrounded by boutique shops , cafes and restaurants but noisy in the morning- renovators and garbage trucks contributing to the noise pollution.Room was way too small .

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Loved the balcony to sit on. Room is on the small side . Could do with removing the bench at the end of the bed to increase space.. shower is tiny , you wouldn’t want to be a larger person no room to move . Shower alcove leaked so much that bath mat and floor became very wet. Great part of Potts Point to stay. Would stay again
