    Location is good. Easy to walk across central sydney. Great design, great staff. Located next to apice alley which has a great selection of asian fusion foods and breakfast places nearby. It's a solid hotel and good value for money.

    Pool was small but ok for a few laps. The pool did need a good clean as it had feathers and leaves in it which was off putting. In our room the bathroom, which was a wet room, hadn't been cleaned well. The grout between the light grey tiles was black in the shower area which was pretty grim. Just a bit of feedback to add as a job on the regular cleaning schedule.

    Luxury hotel paying careful attention to details that showcased the venue's history. Great selection of drinks at both the rooftop bar and downstairs bar. Great food options in walking distance, lovely restaurants and Spice Alley.

    Unfortunately the afternoon sun is not on the pool. The pool is best enjoyed in the morning.

    Incredible collection of reclaimed medical equipment used as lamps and other practical artistic pieces. Perfect inner city location without feeling the hustle and bustle of downtown Sydney.

    It was brilliant. Not much to dislike.

    Abercrombie room is perfect for solo or couple travel. Bath in the room and double sinks are nice touches.

    Room service should be served with proper crockery/cutlery. It was delicious food but too messy eating out of a box/bag using plastic cutlery. Ruined experience somewhat.

About

Overview

The iconic Clare Hotel, which was originally a pub and the Carlton United Breweries buildings, and through a sensitive restoration given birth to two buildings in one, a place where historic elements are preserved and contemporary pleasures abound. Here, lifestyle is as much in play as luxury. The 62 rooms offer an embracing mix of bespoke handcrafted items with an authentic, old-world feel, and serve as a base from which one can experience arguably the best rooftop bar and pool in the city, as well as three unique restaurants, which include the inspired work of Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton. The brewery may be gone, but its semi-industrial feel, combined with sleek new elements, are the reason The Old Clare Hotel is now a neighborhood-defining property.
