The good point about this hotel is that the staff are without exception charming and helpful and friendly.
The position is central, but it's in an alleyway with bad smells and early morning piles of vomit.
The rooms would once have been stylish. They are now tired and gloomy. The carpet was dirty and lumpy (what was under those twenty lumps?). The bed is small by hotel standards for two. The lighting system is not intuitive. The bathrooms have insufficient light and need a good deep clean and application of new silicone.
Room service food is very disappointing given the hotel's association with supposedly good restaurants. The real shock is how bad breakfast is for AUD25. A fruit salad not seen since 1973 with grapes, watermelon and melon alone. Three cereals to choose from. Some juice, and toast making facility. That's it. The benches were covered in crumbs. It feels dirty. For an extra AUD12 you can have row booked eggs (overcooked- can't even boil an egg) and 'soldiers' made from under toasted thick white slabs so karate that each soldier was twice as big as the egg. I dreaded breakfast each morning and eventually went elsewhere.
Great staff; a tired and over-rated grubby hotel

The hotel itself has very nice decor, and has clearly spent a lot of money on providing little extras for the guests(ipads in the rooms, bvulgari products). We were given a room designed for guests using wheelchairs, it had a shower that was large and leaky, not ideal. We asked for a regular room and they were unable to provide one. We ordered some room service, the food was much better then most room service. We then opted for breakfast using the order form you hang on the door. When we woke up after the food was about 20 minutes late, we called about it they said they were busy it would be another 20 minutes. As we were checking out this obviously didnt work. We had to cancel our order and start our travels starving, having not prepared anything assuming their breakfast system worked. We received no apology let alone compensation for our troubles which doesn't exactly match the obvious higher up attempts at providing a first class stay.
The walls are very very thin (might as well be curtains) and the lights buzz. They provide earplugs.

The establishment is a very good Sydney hotel, despite being a little difficult to find as it is located down a lane way. I have stayed at the Establishment multiple times for business and have always found the service to be efficient and first class. The rooms are a good size and the turn down service is great with the complimentary cookies and tea. If you are looking for something different in a Sydney hotel the establishment would be recommend.

If you are looking to be spoilt , indulged and you enjoy the finer things in life ....this is the place for you!
Hemisphere is hedonism at its best... with out peer... there is not one other venue in Australia that can provide five star dining , an array of bars , ambience , opulence, atmosphere and service ...Hemisphere has it all...

The complex also offers accommodation which you would have to rate as something special!!
While Grandma may enjoy the place the crowd is in the main aged 20 to 50 , seriously well dressed and not looking as if they are short of a quid!!
Enjoy a night at Hemisphere ... It is not a mirage the place is the real deal!!!!

I really enjoyed the Establishment Hotel.
The rooms have a different feel to the traditional studio suites, so it takes away the hotel monotony for oft-travellers.
Check in was easy and the room felt incredibly spacious.
The complimentary biscuits and herbal 'pre sleep' tea was a nice touch.
The bathroom was huge, and to touch on a pet topic of mine, the toilet paper was high quality. (I can't believe the number of high priced hotels that go to great lengths to please their guest in terms of service and fit out and then roll out cheap toilet paper.)
The laneway my room overlooked was incredibly noisy at 5am on the first morning I stayed there, but was much quieter the next time.
