Managed by Eight Hotels Australia, Hotel Altamont Sydney, formerly Sydney's most exclusive boutique hotel housing guests as famous as Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones, is available to the budget conscious traveller.
This small, centrally located unique boutique hotel is only minutes from Oxford Street and the city, and with easy access to the harbour, beaches and Sydney Airport.
Modelled on the first Government House, the original building was built in 1830 and was one of a handful of private mansions constructed at that time on the Darlinghurst Ridge looking back toward the newly established town of Sydney.
Formally renovated by award-winning architect Furio Valich, the original Colonial Georgian mansion has been preserved where possible, while giving the whole building a post modernist edge. No boring hotel corridors here. Rooms open onto an undulating communal street featuring a curved concrete wall with original artworks.
Staff are friendly and efficient, all rooms are non-smoking and comfortably furnished with ensuites, individual air conditioning, cable TV, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryers, king and queen size beds. The Loft Room also has a DVD player.
The hotel features an extensive roof garden with city skyline views and a large gazebo style guest lounge. Some of the hotel rooms open on to a tiny sheltered courtyard area; an ideal place for that first coffee of the morning. All guests can access the roof garden via the central stairway.
