great locationPosted Mar 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
Got the top floor room. Great place for a nice cold beer overlooking the city. Room was tidy, clean and fully functional. Would definitely stay there again. Great access to everything in the city.

Good for mePosted Dec 7, 2013
Pros: Location and simplicity.
Location: Oxford street. Heaps around within seconds. City center a nice 15 minute walk away.
The Wattle hotel was an interesting hotel. Just a hole in the wall, it opened up to a reception, stairwell and rooms down a corridor. I have to say the rooms were old but at the same time were comfortable. Comfy bed, flat screen TV, air-con and bath were all I needed. In fact the room was very large and had an interesting balcony set up over looking Oxford street. It was infact the location that suited me best. Staff were friendly but often not around. A buzzer at the door found them. One point would be to clean the windows of the balcony but I appreciate the difficulty along a main road. Would stay again.

Great location but horriblePosted Dec 3, 2013
Cons: The entire property
Location: Great location but thats as far as it goes.
From when we checked in to the hotel to the day we checked out the hotel staff were terribel. When they were at the the desk they just never wanted to help. The room as cleaned twice in the time we were there, we had to request towels a number of times. The rooms were old and unkept. The entire hotel needs to be closed and totally renovated. One of the biggest reasons we stayed here was that they say that they are a gay hotel. NOT TRUE. They put a rainbow flag on the front door, thats the extent of it. If your thinking of staying here DONT!!!!!!!!

convenient locationPosted Oct 24, 2013
Pros: The location for me was great.
Cons: Maybe a little cleaner.
Location: Easy walk or bus ride to alot of tourist attractions.
The first room I got the door wouldn't lock so they gave me a free upgrade to another room. It was a little bigger. Quiet and nice. Very simple.

Run Down Hotel and they intend to keep it that wayPosted Aug 21, 2013
Cons: Noise, Poor Facilities
Location: In the middle of Darlinghurst with lots of shops and cafes close at hand. Thumping Bass from Discos to entertain you all through the night.
I'll start off by saying that The Wattle is indeed cheaper than most in Sydney, but If you can muster up the extra cash, please for your own sake stay elsewhere. I stayed here from nostalgia, as twenty years ago this was a lovely old house, more like a B&B, where the manager would carry your bags up as there was no lift and make you breakfast in the morning. The rooms were mainly huge with chandeliers in the ceiling. Since then they've divided the rooms up into smaller ones, the breakfast has gone and the state of the rooms are even more run down. The double glazed outer windows would not shut, and the shower had tiles missing filled with concrete or grout and the soap holder had broken off long ago so that you needed to keep your soap and shampoo on the floor. This is the kind of hotel where you report things to the staff and their eyes glaze over and they pretend to listen, but you realise they know it already and have no intention of doing anything about it. On our second day I complained that the room hadn't been cleaned and was told they didn't do it any more as "the guests don't like having their things touched". I was also told that I hadn't put out the "make up my room" sign, which I eventually found on a shelf above the sink! They did clean the room on our last night but it was exceptionally noisy on a Saturday night right on Oxford Street with non functioning double glazing.
