Lovely apartment in one of the city's hippest area. Close to public transportation and great restaurants. Highly recommended!

Amazing stay, fun space, and great Neighborhood. Would 100% stay again, loved it!!! One thing to be aware of - if you have a car to park, make sure it isn't a large one, as the garage is in a narrow laneway and it is very difficult to park, even for a master parker such as myself ;-) I managed to fit a small SUV but anything bigger would be impossible. Also, it was a bit on the cold side in the apartment (there during May), as there is one wall unit heater in the living room and one space heater in the bedroom. The bathroom and kitchen remain pretty cold! I kept the doors to the "hot rooms" closed and did not have much of an issue. it was simply amazing and would definitely stay again!

The flat is in a fabulous location. The restaurants nearby on Gertrude street are really good and varied - we particularly loved "anada" a tapas restaurant a few doors down. The flat has a very simple decor - high ceilings, white walls and black painted floor boards. The sitting room is a comfortable place to chill. It is not noisy and we enjoyed hearing the bell on the trams. The staff in the shop were very helpful and would advise us on where we should eat. The sheets on the bed are very nice natural cotton. The bathroom is an old style it was nice to have a separate bath and shower and there was plenty of very hot water. The bikes were a real bonus. If you want to be in the coolest part of the city and feel like a local stay here!

I have The Standard Store with my husband Orlando - we also have a store in Surry Hills Sydney ( which is where we live ) I love beautiful things and I hope this apartment is a reflection on that. Originally from the UK we now call Australia home , but travel alot ( staying in many Airbnb's ) for work - and we realise the importance of having somewhere lovely to come home to at the end of the day.
