Expert Review

This minimalist and modern boutique hotel in the bohemian suburb of Darlinghurst makes the most of its compact footprint with an un-frilly design scheme orchestrated with gray and olive tones (and the occasional splash of ketchup red). The 40 rooms are understated but crisp with retro furnishings, mirrored headboards, and mohair throw rugs; chic Aesop toiletries primp the bathrooms (a few of which have a tub). Standard rooms are smallish, while “executive” rooms are generously sized—a design refresh is scheduled to take place in early 2008, but look for the Kirketon to keep pace with the city’s fast-evolving hotel scene. Darlinghurst Road is a busy thoroughfare, so request a room away from the street noise. There’s a notable restaurant on the premises, and lots of fashionable cafés and boutiques nearby.
