Surry Hills is quickly becoming Sydney's boutique hotel hub. The hyper-local Paramount House Hotel — complete with rooftop wellness centre — launched in March, and the 35-room Little Albion House (which you can book through Airbnb) followed in July. Now, real estate developer Cienna Group is opening a 12-storey laneway hotel on the corner of Riley and Campbell Streets.

Designed by Australian architect firm Tzannes, the new Cambridge Hotel will have a swimming pool and spa in the basement, design-focused rooms, a plant-filled rooftop space and in-house bar and restaurant. If the hotel wants to compete with Paramount House, it'll need to get a big name in to run the restaurant. Ester's Mat Lindsay recently opened Poly in the Paramount House building, and it's already a huge hit with locals.

Tzannes Director Ben Green said in a statement that new hotel would reflect and be inspired by the surrounding area, saying that the new hotel would be "tailored to the place in which it is located, Surry Hills — gritty, colourful and vibrant".

Cienna Group is no stranger to the Surry Hills area, either, owning the existing Cambridge and Adge Hotels on the same Riley Street block. The new Cambridge Hotel will be located adjacent to them, and will have interconnected doors and shared facilities.

According to Commercial Real Estatethe new hotel will cost around $26.6 million dollars, and developers need to lodge another application before construction can begin. We'll update as soon as we know more.
