Recently we visited Little Albion Guest House that represents a local guesthouse experience reimagined for the modern luxury traveller.
If you're looking for that perfect balance between old and new, whilst still allowing the heritage of the original building to shine through, there are not many places better than Little Albion Guesthouse to stay at when in Surry Hills, Sydney.
Set within a city that melds its industrial past with modern and edgy touches, Surry Hills features plenty of beautifully converted warehouses with the Little Albion Guest House showcasing just how well conversions are really done.
Inside of which was once a church, an inspiring and well thought out build were needed to make the best use of the area, as the hotel section of the building is situated between two other buildings. Drawing on what a modern boutique hotel really needs, the design features a fresh take on the industrial style, packed with character and a home-like feeling.
Although set away from its bigger sisters in the city, this guest house doesn’t just offer all the amenities of a larger hotel, including a 24-hour host service, bar and daily housekeeping, but offers more in personality. Classic examples from within showcase a certain charm to the entryway, with the impressive wallpapered lobby area, to the glass-clad lift which makes the most of the industrial locale of the hotel. Albion House’s quirks come in unobtrusive quantities with striking qualities
Like most guest rooms it has city and neighbourhood views, yet like the city itself boasts unique details merging historic essence with contemporary features, including wallpapers which contrast against Art Deco-inspired furniture pieces or marble-clad bathrooms. Plus, although the boutique’s location is central to cafés, restaurants and bars, we decided to take up the self-service bar with a wine and Old Fashioned on the rooftop before heading out to dinner.
So, when can we check you in?
