About Us

Hotel Challis Potts Point offers elegant and affordable boutique hotel accommodation right in the heart of vibrant Potts Point Village.

In a stunning heritage building, Hotel Challis has a variety of beautifully styled rooms, from Deluxe Double, Queen and King Rooms through to premium balcony rooms overlooking gorgeous Challis Avenue or Sydney Harbour.

The hotel building was originally part of the 19th century Estate owned John Henry Challis (1806-1880), which along with the avenue, took his name. An Englishman and self-made philanthropist, John Henry Challis was a major benefactor of the expansion of Sydney University’s Arts, Sciences and Medicine faculties.

Where we are

You will find us on Challis Avenue, Potts Point. Often described as the ‘Parisian’ end of this charming historical neighbourhood, the guesthouse is surrounded by cobbled streets lined with flowering Magnolia and Jacaranda trees.

Great for guests looking to stay close to the city, Kings Cross train station is less than 10 minutes walk away, with frequent trains to the CBD or Bondi Junction. Taxis are also easy to find on any of the main streets nearby.

Neighbouring Woolloomooloo, Rushcutters Bay, Elizabeth Bay and Darlinghurst can be reached on foot and are great for exploring. For the more adventurous, a 20 minute walk take you to the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens, from where you can head over to the famous Opera House and Circular Quay.

Or stay closer to home and discover Sydney’s former red-light district of Kings Cross, stretching along Darlinghurst Road and Victoria Street from the corner of Macleay Street to the Coca Cola Sign. You might even meet some friendly locals with tales to tell of the area’s famous, and sometimes shady, past.

We highly recommend Hotel Challis Potts Point as a brilliant location to stay in Sydney and look forward to meeting you soon!
