Simpsons of Potts Point – Tranquil suburban feel, yet so close to vibrant areas.
Along a leafy side-street, this boutique hotel, originally built in 1892 but renovated extensively since, still exudes charm and history. All Deluxe Rooms are similar – lovingly furnished with tasteful colors, comfortable sofas, lovely bathrooms, and stylish lamps, prints, and curtains. The Superiors are larger while the attic-style Dormer Rooms are more compact and intimate. Adding to the overall ambiance is the Guest Lounge, packed with old-fashioned furniture, as well as a library, chessboard, fireplace, and decanters of (complimentary) port and sherry. A hearty breakfast is a surprising inclusion and served in the airy conservatory. Ideal for couples on an inner-city getaway, there are enough classy bistros nearby and plenty more places to eat, drink, and shop in neighboring Kings Cross. And nearby steps lead to the harbor, dominated by the renovated Finger Wharf at Woolloomooloo, which is also lined with sophisticated eateries.
