The Nano Pad is a recently renovated studio apartment that has been transformed into the ultimate short stay accommodation. Designed by local award winning designers, Architect Prineas, the apartment provides its guests with additional amenity than that usually found in boutique hotel accommodation.

Situated in Darlinghurst, the Nano Pad is surrounded by some of Sydney’s best bars, cafes and restaurants and is just a 15 minute stroll to the city. Suited for couples, solo travellers, or the astute business person, the Nano Pad represents the synthesis of comfort and design.

The Space:

Located in an original Art Deco apartment building in Sydney’s inner-east, the Nano Pad is bright, warm and efficiently stylish. Uncompromising in its spaces, the assertive design of the studio greets its guests with creature comforts unparalleled by many other short-stays.

The kitchen is fully functional with a gas stove, oven, fridge freezer, kettle, toaster and stove-top espresso maker. The building has shared laundry facilities located on the rooftop of the building. An iron and fold out ironing board is conveniently concealed in a cupboard within the apartment.

Every object in the apartment has been hand selected to evoke the essence the locale. On the bookshelf you will find a curated collection of books and novels that celebrate Sydney & Australia. Bemboka linen sheets and towels will make for a comfortable sleep. The bathroom is fully stocked with Aesop products to leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

The Nano Pad is surrounded by some of the city’s best restaurants, cafes and bars. The organic fresh farmer market is held every weekend and number of supermarkets, including a Coles, are nearby. Kings Cross train station is a short 6 minute walk away and the Sydney CBD, Opera House, Botanical Gardens and Rushcutters Bay are all within walking distance.

We hope you enjoy your stay!

Stylish little apartment with high-quality amenities (e.g. Aesop soap, shampoo) in a convenient location. Smart furniture to make the most of the limited space (e.g. many mirrors, drawers under the bed etc.). A very pleasant surprise after having stayed at various other Australian airbnbs, where the level of cleanliness etc. seems quite different from European standards. Thanks for the always prompt and easy communication, Johannes! The only thing that negatively affected my stay was that I only heard the day before I was to leave the apartment (I just wanted to double-check) that the previously agreed on late check-out option was no longer available, which caused me quite some headache during my last busy hours in Sydney.

We normally stay in Bondi but we were keen to discover a new area. This was a perfect location! We walked everywhere (Paddington, city, botanical gardens, Kings Cross for trains, etc...) and we enjoyed the local cafes for breakfast, just around the corner. Johannes was always quick to assist and respond to my questions. The place is very well designed and beautiful with great amenities. Perfect for 1 or 2 people!

The Nanopad is very hip. Clever cabinetry and design for such a small space. I really loved the bathroom - the floor is wood slats right through into the shower. And the range of Aesop throughout is a bonus. The location is really good, had a nice breakfast at Bill's Darlinghurst, just a few minutes walk away. The building itself is just a standard apartment block in feel - residential, old, normal neighboring apartment sounds - but it's quite an oasis inside the apartment. Communication was host was timely and easy. Suits singles or couples looking for a place in the area that is like a hotel, yet not a hotel.

Zoe, Thank you for your comments. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, and the great job the designers have done with this space. Bill's is one of my favorite places for breakfast. All the best, Johannes

Great rental property! The place was spotless on arrival, bed and pillows were amazingly comfortable. Walking distance to train and bus stations as well as many delicious restaurants and cafes (Try the Rusty Rabbit and A Brewer's Tale for coffee and breakfast/brunch-both within 2 minutes from apartment). One thing that would be helpful is a house guide with some info on the area as well ass housekeeping items like what to do with garbage on checkout, how to operate blinds etc. Overall the apartment was a great place to stay and I would definitely recommend it to others!

I'm Johannes, from Sydney.

I'm an easy going guy that works hard and play hard. Lived in Sydney most of my life, so I know the area pretty well. I enjoy meeting new people, and hearing their travel stories. In my free time I enjoy indoor rock climbing or taking the bike out for a ride.
Looking forward to meeting you.
