Medusa Hotel Sydney is located in the quiet, leafy section of Darlinghurst Road close to cafés, restaurants and bars. Darlinghurst possesses a unique inner city village vibe, similar to New York's 'Soho' and is popular with the fashion and entertainment industry.

Medusa is set in a grand Victorian Italianate terrace, built in the 19th Century and featuring 18 rooms and suites. The interiors were dramatically renovated in 1998 under the direction of award winning Australian architect Scott Weston. Today you'll find bold, bright, quirky décor throughout the hotel including a faux Caravaggio Medusa artwork in reception; busts in the rooms and poems dedicated the Greek mythological creature.

Medusa's modernist guest rooms have been designed with function and convenience in mind including kitchenette, fully stocked minibar and free wifi. Bathrooms feature luxe Aesop amenities and some rooms have baths. Extra touches include turndown chocolates, complimentary breakfast pastries and newspapers available each morning at reception. Room service is available from a selection of local restaurants.

Ground floor rooms lead out to a central water feature surrounded by deck chairs creating an urban oasis in the city. Complimentary guest passes to swim at Cook and Phillip Pool are available from reception and there are several local gyms nearby (casual fees apply to the gym).

24-hour reception and dedicated personalised service from Luke & Jess who have a long and dedicated history with Medusa, seal the deal on a unique city stay.
