Crystalbrook Albion – Surry Hills

Crystalbrook Albion is a boutique hotel located in the Surry Hills district of Sydney. Originally built as a convent in 1903, as you can tell from the first floor ecclesiastical windows. Just a 15 minute drive from Sydney Airport, this puts you in easy reach of Sydney Harbour and almost anything you could want to do in Sydney.

The hotel’s rooms are thoroughly contemporary making use of neutral colours paired with clean lines. These contrast with the walnut art deco bedheads and dashes of colour in items like pillows. Some rooms offer floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the light.

The Honour Bar offers the opportunity to enjoy your favourite drinks there or on the rooftop garden. While there isn’t a gym on-site, the Bunker Gym is a five minute walk. The hotel also features an art collection curated by Vogue photographer Nicholas Samartis, as well as some unique pieces.

If you enjoy sports, then you could hardly be in a better place. There are multiple golf courses no more than a 10 minute drive away, as well as Sydney Cricket Ground and the Royal Randwick Racecourse. You can find luxury shopping at Chanel at Westfield, a 10 minute drive north.
