SYDNEY: 1888 Hotel

Based in Pyrmont, Sydney, 1888 Hotel is the latest hotel to launch from boutique hotel operator 8Hotels. A hotel whereby aesthetics are key, 1888 is the first self-proclaimed Instagram hotel , offering Instagram-friendly maps for the area, a revolving display of Instagram images in the Mac space at reception featuring photos taken by guests, and a ‘selfie space’ for guests to enjoy. What’s more, guests with more than 10,000 followers can take advantage of a complimentary night at the hotel. Offering 90 rooms – including a rooftop penthouse, a restaurant and bar and a number of private spaces, the hotel blends polished, contemporary style with natural Australian elements including reclaimed Iron Bark, concrete, bronze and stone as well as impressively high ceilings, period windows and a light-filled lobby. —Emily Cater
