Darlo Bar at The Royal Sovereign Hotel
The Royal Sovereign Hotel, or the Darlo Bar as it’s more affectionately known to locals, offers quirky, boutique accommodation in the heart of the inner-city. Kings Cross train station is only a seven-minute walk from the hotel and various bus stops are within metres of the front door.
Downstairs is the bar with comfy lounges to relax. Upstairs there’s an open air terrace with a vertical garden bar where they grow their own herbs for cocktails, or you can try one of the many craft beers in the sun. Vinyl DJs spin soul, funk or blues on Sundays or try your hand against the locals at trivia on Wednesday nights.
The accommodation is situated above the pub and there’s a separate entrance from the street. All rooms have recently undergone renovations and are comfortable, clean and unique, just like the Darlo Bar. There are shared bathrooms and showers that are cleaned daily and rooms are supplied with fresh towels and soap on arrival. There’s a television, air-conditioning, wardrobes and blinds in every room. Complimentary WiFi is available in all rooms.
Please note, there are stairs only and no lift access to the rooms.
