One of the few options in Sydney if you're looking for a bit of old world charm. A 19th Century house, furnished with charm and operating more as a guest house, than a hotel. A tiny bit off the main tourist track, so expect lots of walking to get to and from them.

What’s really lovely about this small hotel is the building. A really special old heritage building of which there are not that many in Sydney, certainly outside of The Rocks. The hotel is right at the quiet end of Potts Point as well, it’s just a short walk to a stunning view of the harbour and from there toy can stroll on through the gardens to the bridge and opera house. Potts Point itself is a great place, loads of bars, restaurants and cafes to enjoy!

Local from Sydney

So over-the-top with old-timey luxury that it borders on self-parody, the thoroughly lovely Simpsons of Potts Point is a virtually perfect heritage guesthouse. A bit out of the way in the far end of Potts Point, it's a hell of hike back up the steps from the harbour, and an equally long (if less exhausting) walk to the nearest train station at Kings Cross. Still, if you don't mind a bit of walking, the owners of the luxurious cottage-style building (built circa 1892) have spared no expense in providing pitch-perfect period decoration -- all dark wood and rich leather and stained glass. With only 13 rooms (some with private balconies), it's a boutique spot to lodge, and has an unpretentious and friendly air. The leafy Potts Point neighborhood in which it's located is also one of Sydney's coolest, with lots of great cafes and restaurants and plenty of quirky boutiques.

Depending on what way you come, Simpsons hotel is either a hearty hike up a stair-lined hill, or, a leisurely stroll down a tree-lined street. Situated in the uber trendy area of Potts Point, even if you take the stairs, this boutique hotel is worth a visit. Words can’t describe how gorgeously timeless the décor is once you step inside. Solid furniture matches the equally solid staircase. Bespoke art lines the walls and the front sitting room is inviting and homely. Continental breakfast is complimentary, as is wi-fi and even an evening tipple of port and sherry! All 13 bedrooms are different but exude as much charm and cottage-esque comfort as each other. Whether you’re a family or a honeymooning couple, and whether you want a spa-bath or a little extra space, this hotel is very much fit for the inner king or queen in you.
