1888: A Picture Perfect Hotel

If you plan on visiting the new 1888 Hotel in Sydney’s Pyrmont, make sure you have your camera phone ready. The latest guesthouse to open by boutique operator, 8 Hotels, has been inspired by the nostalgia of Kodak’s first box and roll camera launch of the same year, 1888.

And to celebrate, the designer dig is honouring the evolution of photography by offering Instagram-friendly walking maps for the Pyrmont area. There’s also a revolving series of Instagram images in the ‘Mac space’ at reception featuring photos taken by guests, and a ‘selfie space’ within the property for guests to pap themselves at the new boutique lodging.

Originally used for wool storage, the 1888-erected building that houses the hotel has undergone a $30 million development over the last two years to reveal a luxury property that offers 90 rooms, including a rooftop penthouse apartment overlooking the city surrounds.

As major fans of exposed brick walls done well, we’re happy to see this feature prominently along with reclaimed Iron bark, concrete, stone and bronze, for a distinct Australian look. High ceilings and huge period windows reflect the heritage history and overall feel of the building.
