80 Com­mon­wealth Street, Surry Hills, NSW; paramoun­t­house­ho­ Ver­dict: A beau­ti­ful her­itage build­ing stylishly and in­di­vid­u­al­is­ti­cally re­stored that gets right to the heart of Syd­ney’s cul­tural life. Score:

We rated: The de­sign de­tails, like the raw brass fix­tures on the el­e­gant stand­alone basin. We’d change: The ho­tel’s ac­cou­trements – be­spoke blan­kets and mugs, etc. – are lovely; and the fact that you can pur­chase many of them as a sou­venir from the re­tail sec­tion at re­cep­tion is a nice touch, how­ever I can’t help but feel I am be­ing a lit­tle ‘sold to’. Per­haps credit for guests at the cin­ema or cafe would counter this, and feel like a ges­ture for ‘lo­cals’. Notes: I paid $360 for one night in a Sunny room.
