Our Story

The Collectionist

Why stay with us you might ponder? Well, for starters, The Collectionist is no normal hotel.

We’re not a collection of guest room accommodation with cookie-cutter designs, but a new concept hotel that offer a selection of room canvases that you can choose on arrival!

Here’s how it works: First, book one of our 4 different room size categories—  Bootstrap, Moonshiner, Tinkerer and Artisan. Then on arrival, you’ll be escorted through the available rooms for the night where you can pick which one takes your fancy.

These individually-designed and uniquely named rooms are the results of creative collaborations from leading Australian designers, architects, artists, and people who know their s##t about what matters in Boutique Hotel accommodation. One thing’s for sure, we accept everyone is an individual and has choices. It’s this freedom of choice, to select what suits, that our hotel is built on.

So what are you waiting for? Come and Choose Different.

Our Prime Location

In the heart of Sydney

Our Prime Location

We’re on the fringe of the big city, skirting Sydney uni and bordering the buzz of Newtown and boho Glebe. Sneak in a show at the Enmore Theatre, contemporise yourself at the Carriageworks artists hub or pick up some produce at Paddy’s Market. All around it’s a melting pot from all walks of life, with cool vibes, trendy shops, food, music and bars, you could easily stay out all night, confident it’s a short stroll or roll home.

What we offer

Choose Different


No basic beige walls. No stock standard white sheets. We challenge traditional hotel stays with a collection of 39 custom designed rooms and interiors that you’ll remember long after you return home.

You’ll enjoy all the standard room features that you’ve come to expect in boutique hotel accommodation— fast and furious WiFi, a fully equipped kitchen (all the essentials and even a Nespresso coffee machine), and balcony or terrace options in most rooms.

What separates us from the “norm” is our seamless digital check-in process, a strict no TV policy and the option to choose your room on arrival.

Choose Different. Choose The Collectionist.

The People's Choice

"Guests at the Marsden Street, Camperdown hotel will be welcomed by a seamless digital check-in and welcome drink and invited to peruse available rooms and depending on the style, colour, texture and appeal, choose their preference in which to stay. It is a revolutionary change to the traditional hotel check-in process, but one which seems natural."

The People's Choice

Sydney’s newest boutique hotel, The Collectionist in Camperdown, is a choose-your-own-adventure kind of place – there are no assigned rooms, the design is anything but cookie-cutter and there’s definitely no chance of being bored.

Your thoughts

The People's Choice

This new Sydney hotel is an antidote to cookie cutter design. With its focus on individualistic and design-led rooms, a stay at the newly opened The Collectionist Hotel is anything but ordinary.

The hippest new hotel in the Inner West...a unique concept that’s totally new for the Sydney hotel scene.
