Darlinghurst, Sydney, New South Wales
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. There is a small outdoor courtyard with a slender, decorative pool, however, and guests get free access to a nearby swimming pool and gym.
