Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Standard rooms are seriously small
  • Pricey parking
  • Fee for Internet
  • Bathrooms aren't entirely private (separated from bedroom by fogged glass doors)

Bottom Line

Everything about the 70 rooms in the chic Quest Potts Point hotel is luxurious, but small. Bright, stylish rooms have mirrored surfaces to create the illusion of more space, cool striped chairs, and tiny, but very functional, kitchenettes. Bathrooms are floor-to-ceiling marble but aren't entirely private due to fogged glass doors. One perk here is the rooftop terrace, full of seating for taking in the views, and the location in the King's Cross area is great for experiencing the bohemian culture and nightlife of Sydney. Overall, this property provides great value for guests who value aesthetics over square footage.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In King's Cross area of central Sydney

Quest Potts Point is located in, as the name suggest, Potts Point, a suburb located in King's Cross to the east of the Central Business District. Once a bohemian haven, King's Cross has become a trendy neighborhood due to lots of real estate development and the arrival of many upscale bars. Despite these changes, King's Cross is still considered Sydney's red light district, and has all the nightlife, thrills, and detractors that go along with that.

Sydney is Australia's most populous city and its cultural hub. Festivals, theater, fashion, and a famous opera house can all be found here, along with the retail and restaurants that naturally accompany them. The weather is excellent, with an average of 300 sunny days a year, and beaches are within a short drive from the city center.

  • 18-minute drive to Sydney Airport
  • 8-minute drive to Oxford Street for Sydney's gay scene
  • 8-minute drive to Circular Quay, historically the shipping heart of Sydney, now a recreational space with ferry
  • 9-minute drive to Sydney Opera House
  • 9-minute drive to the Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 9-minute drive to the Rocks Market for kitschy trinkets and souvenirs
  • 10-minute drive to Sydney Harbor Bridge
  • 11-minute drive to Darling Harbor for clubbing
  • 11-minute drive to Sydney Aquarium
  • 12-minute drive to Bondi Beach
  • 15-minute drive to Tamarama Beach (premium territory for serious surfers)
  • 17-minute drive Bronte Beach for family-centric beach time
  • 45-minute drive to Botany Bay National Park

 Bottom Line

Everything about the 70 rooms in the chic Quest Potts Point hotel is luxurious, but small. Bright, stylish rooms have mirrored surfaces to create the illusion of more space, cool striped chairs, and tiny, but very functional, kitchenettes.
