Next time you’re in Sydney and you want to try something a little different, check out the 1888 Hotel. It’s not your typical luxury chain hotel nor a boutique luxury property in the traditional sense. They tout their hotel chains (8Hotels) as eclectic, fun, charming, fashionable and stylish.

1888 Hotel is a heritage listed 90 bedroom boutique hotel, eatery, bar & event space that combines a little of Sydney’s old world charm with a lot of contemporary design & modern-day comfort. Built in 1888 & relaunched as a boutique hotel in 2013, 1888 Hotel showcases 8Hotels’ service culture against the backdrop of a very unique hotel. What’s also quirky is that they tout themselves as the world’s first Instagram hotel. They give travelers a way to share photos: they say “1888 Hotel is the place to Instagram it all!” All those memories that is.

Located in Sydney’s inner-city suburb of Pyrmont, 1888 neighbours the Sydney Fish Market, the Sydney Exhibition & Convention Centre, Darling Harbour, The Star, plenty of trendy bars, dining options & the very best boutique shopping. 1888 is just a few minutes’ walk from Darling Harbour, Cockle Bay, Sydney’s CBD & Ultimo.

Meticulously restored & thoughtfully designed, 1888’s collection of rooms boast 3m high ceilings, exposed brick walls, original Iron Bark Beams, huge sound proofed period windows, recycled timber work stations, bespoke furniture, artwork by Australian artists, complimentary WiFi, in-room iPads, Smart TVs with media hubs, custom-made bedding with luxury MicroCloud bed toppers and bathrooms featuring walk-in rain showers.

The five star property also teamed up with the local Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre, just a short stroll from the hotel and offer free passes to guests who wish to use the facility. Their selection of hotels, villas, apartments and restaurants are available in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane, Perth, Hepburn Springs, Thredbo, Bali and Paris.
