Surry Hills is one of those inherently stylish, jaw-droppingly clean Sydney neighborhoods. Nineteenth-century terraces and picture-perfect cafés packed with glowing Sydneysiders sipping velvety flat whites abound. Paramount House Hotel fits right in with this almost-too-good-to-be-true vibe. Every piece of furniture and decorative detail is a celebration of Australia. The unusual, Japanese-style tubs in the bathrooms are carved from Australian timber (with Aesop products perched conveniently on the ledge), beds are made up with pastel Aussie linens, and minibars are teeming with local cheeses and charcuterie. Each guest room is designed to be flooded with light, and between the famous Paramount Coffee Project nestled in the lobby and beloved hotel restaurant Poly—a sister to Ester—Paramount House caters as much to locals as to visitors.
