Paramount House Hotel

Why we love it: Former movie studio headquarters turned stylish lifestyle hub and hotel

The Highlights:
- A location in lively Surrey Hills 
- Unique amenities from building neighbors, like cafe room service and complimentary yoga
- Striking, industrial-chic design

The Review:
Just outside Sydney’s Central Business District, the beloved Surrey Hills neighborhood is considered a hub for the city’s latest and greatest, from top restaurants and bars to cool shops, designer flea markets, and cutting-edge galleries—with lots of leafy greenspaces and winding alleyways in between. It was also once home to the Aussie headquarters of Paramount Pictures Studios, which has since been transformed into a lifestyle hub that houses an indie cinema with a bar; a gourmet cafe; a rooftop rec club with a gym and spa; a wine bar; and, as of 2018, the charming Paramount House Hotel. Though they are all individual tenants, the spaces work together like one big family, with the cafe offering breakfast, lunch, and coffee via room service, and the rec club providing hotel guests with complimentary access to fitness, yoga, and Pilates classes. (The wine bar has plans to deliver selections from its small plates menu and 160 vintage-strong wine list to the guest rooms, too.)

The rooms themselves range from cozy Nooks and mid-sized Sunny options to bi-level Lofts, each gorgeously designed in an industrial-chic style and outfitted with French linens, terrazzo-lined bathrooms, jewel-toned fabrics, and mini-bars stocked with locally-sourced wines, beers, and snacks. (Lofts also have separate living areas and timber-encased bathtubs.) With rooms this warm and welcoming, it may feel hard to leave the building—lucky for you, there’s much to enjoy under one roof.
