Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located in the Darlinghurst, near restaurants and nightlife
  • Rooms each have small kitchenettes that include a microwave, minibar, sink and coffeemaker
  • Bathrooms feature high-end Aveda bath products
  • Bedside Lindt chocolates and fresh croissants in the lobby
  • Guests have free access to a nearby fitness center and pool
  • Pet-friendly
  • The Grand Room has a fireplace and pretty gilded ceilings

Cons

  • No on-site pool or fitness center, but guests can swim or workout at nearby facilities for free
  • Floors in some of the older bathrooms are worn
  • No on-site restaurant, but nearby restaurants and cafes abound
  • Fee for Wi-Fi, and guests are charged for using the computer in the business center

Bottom Line

Medusa Hotel is a quirky, 18-room boutique hotel with artsy flair. It has the look and feel of a converted house, with a cozy fireplace in the lobby and a painting that depicts the property's namesake. Rooms are on the small side, but have a contemporary look with bright accent walls, muted geometric patterns, and modern platform beds. Each room has a kitchenette that features a microwave, coffeemaker, and minibar, and flat-screen TVs are accompanied by DVD players and small stereo systems. All-white bathrooms are basic but functional and come stocked with Aveda bath products. Amenities are few: no pool, fitness center or restaurant, and a one-computer business center. There is a small outdoor courtyard with a slender, decorative pool, however, and guests get free access to a nearby swimming pool and gym. The Darlinghurst location is within walking distance of the bars and clubs in Kings Cross and on Oxford Street.
