68 rooms - we call them Cosy, Original, Creative and Meandering. Each one is unique.
We also manage apartments in the Nishi building. While our rooms are a cacophony of textures, the apartments are a blank space. The walls are white, the shelves have space for you to bring your own bits and bobs and make you feel at home.
And we manage split-level lofts just across the road and down the lane from us in the NewActon precinct.

Drawing on the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoko (forest bathing) ‘The Ritual of Bush Bathing’ was a seasonal walk designed to increase wellbeing by helping us reconnect with nature.
Led by local custodian and Ngunawal man, Tyronne Bell, we traversed the ridges and hills of Mt Majura. Tyronne told us about the history of the site, and the aboriginal culture that is deeply embedded in the landscape. This event culminated in a digeridoo performance by Jayden Goodrem, a descendent of the Peramangk people.
Anthropologically speaking, rituals connect us to a culture, a sub-culture, maybe even a cult. We have always been curious observers of the repetitive and sometimes strange routines people practise in private. This fascination with human behaviour is the catalyst for a creative project and ongoing study of all the weird and wonderful rituals people do every day. For the project we have created a series of short films directed by U-P and Alyssa McClelland that re-enact the bizarre rituals of others inside the rooms of Hotel Hotel. We’ve also written articles, catalogued everyday rituals across cultures, studied tools and implements connected to rituals and have invited photographers to document their own rituals. We also run a series of live daily rituals events where people can come along and watch invited guests perform their own daily rituals in the public and private spaces in and around Hotel Hotel.
