More details

Breakfast is not available at the hotel.


The contents of the minibars go further than your average small tube of Pringles and alcoholic miniatures: guests can expect hipster-friendly old-fashioned games (dominoes, packs of cards) and beard-trimming kits, and helpful beach-ready additions such as flip-flops and waterproof phone covers, as well as the regular drinkable refreshments.

At the hotel

Bicycles to borrow and free WiFi throughout. In rooms: flatscreen TVs, a Nespresso machine, air-conditioning, a minibar and Malin + Goetz bath products.

Our favourite rooms

For families and those staying a little longer, book an Atrium or Gould Suite, which are essentially one-bedroom apartments and more spacious than the other rooms. The King Deluxe rooms have a balcony, which faces the town rather than the beach.


There’s no pool, but the iconic Bondi Icebergs Club and its 1929 seawater pool are nearby.

Packing tips

Kaftans, coolboxes and your chicest bucket and spade.


Three of the QT Deluxe King rooms are suitable for wheelchair users.


Children of all ages are welcome. Baby cots can be added to rooms on request. Buggies, bicycles and highchairs can be borrowed.

Bermuda shorts, beachy waves and a sun tan.

Hotel restaurant

There’s no restaurant at the hotel, but breakfast is on offer at the nearby Porch & Parlour, where the bill can be charged directly to your room. The breakfast menu includes the clean-eater’s dream Green Breaky Bowl, filled with all the superfoods you can fit on one plate (kale, quinoa, avocado, spinach…).

Last orders

Breakfast at Porch & Parlour from 7am to 11.50am.

Sydney’s international airport is a 40-minute drive from the hotel ( Expect taxi fares to be around the AU$50 mark. Qantas flies from London with stopover options in various cities, including Dubai and Hong Kong; the British Airways route goes via Singapore.


The airport train runs to Bondi Beach, via a change at Central Station; it’s then a short bus or car ride from Bondi Junction to the beach. The total journey time from the airport to the hotel is around 45 minutes.


There’s no car park at the hotel but valet parking can be arranged for $39 a day. The drive into the centre of Sydney will take around 25 minutes. Various international car-hire companies are represented at Sydney airport.

Worth getting out of bed for

Borrow a bike from the hotel and take to the famed golden beaches of this peninsula (Bondi, Bronte, Coogee and Clovelly) on two wheels; or complete the bracing Bondi to Coogee coastal walk on foot. Galeophobes afraid of going into the ocean for fear of any lurking fins should head to the Bondi Icebergs Club instead, where a seawater pool has been facilitating shark-free swims since 1929. And if the art in the hotel isn’t enough to hold your gaze, visit the Aquabumps gallery, the Bondi Art Lounge or, for indigenous art, the Coo-ee Aboriginal Art Gallery.

Local restaurants

Bondi Hardware is a buzzy wine and cocktail bar with exposed brickwork that’s also great for dinner, thanks to the extensive menu of pizzas, sliders and sharing plates on offer. For experimental Middle Eastern food that’s almost too pretty to eat – and more brick walls – head to Sefa Kitchen on Bondi Road.

Local cafés

Porch & Parlour is the closest option to the hotel and serves breakfast daily from 7am. The menu champions seasonal local produce and caters to clean eaters as well as the calorie-blind. For an all-day diner, try Lox, Stock and Barrell on Glenayr Avenue, where you can choose from deli-favourite sandwiches by day, and fritto misto, sautéed chicken livers and seared mackerel by night.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this art-filled hotel in Sydney and unpacked their board shorts and wet suits, a full account of their coastal break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside QT Bondi in Bondi Beach

The whole world looks to Australia to lead the way when it comes to beach style, and at QT Bondi, it’s doing just that. With all of the laid-back charm that the country is so cherished for, this breezy boutique hotel in a Bauhaus-esque building lets its setting take centre-stage. And with a setting like this, there’s no need for a fight. But after a day catching the best of the Pacific’s surf or those sunny Sydney rays, you’ll be glad you can retreat to this colourful, contemporary design den, where there are endless artworks on display, cheerful staff in crisp blue shirts and playful Sixties-style interiors. Mismatched furniture, curved walls and all the colours of the rainbow feature, as do a bright central courtyard and bespoke digital-art installations, thanks to creative input from local artists – a much-loved Bondi lifeguard, Bruce ‘Hoppo’ Hopkins, was also consulted. Art lovers, surfers who want a slice of Australia’s enviable beach culture and gastronomes who want to eat some of the freshest produce in the country will be hooked. We know we are.

The Guestbook

Whenever you book a stay at a Smith Hotel with us, we’ll invite you to review it when you get back. Read what other Smith members had to say in QT Bondi’s Guestbook below.

We loved

The bright clean room feels like your own studio apartment just steps from the beach. Having a supermarket and bottle shop down below makes up for there being no restaurant or bar in the hotel. Our room had a lovely little balcony. The washer/dryer in the room was handy and used more than we expected. Brown Sugar Cafe is marvellous for weekend breakfast of a cozy dinner. Avoid the crowds by doing the bondi to bronte walk during the week not the weekend! Hurricanes restaurant never disappoints.

Don’t expect

Room service, many tv channels, a swimming pool or beach towels. The front desk will give you extra bath towels to take to the beach.

We loved

The room was spacious and comfortable. We loved having access to fresh and healthy food options. Most of all we thoroughly enjoyed being able to swim and exercise around Bondi.
