"What is your zodiac sign?" This is not a question you are normally asked when checking in to a hotel, but again, the Ultimo in Sydney is not a normal hotel.

It is & # 39; the world's first astrology-themed hotel and promises to personalize your stay based on your zodiac sign.

Sounds gimmicky – but I don't want to be a stubborn Taurus, so I dutifully tell the receptionist my sign. She checks me in and hands me the key to a white, simple harbor complete with visible stones and constellations on the walls.

It contains a quote with which I can identify myself, from colleague Taurean Adele: "I love good food and drinking great wines."

The idea behind this boutique 4-star hotel in Chinatown in Sydney, just a short walk from the city center, is to create a & # 39; personalized travel experience & # 39; for guests. The brainchild of an astrology company and manager Scott Hartley, it promises & # 39; functions to help you feel more in line with your astrological sign & # 39 ;, and the £ 115 Natal Chart Interpretation package as it gets fast mentioned, includes an in-depth consultation with the resident astrologer Pia Lehmann.

Her reading of my birth chart – based on where the planets were at the time of my birth – is eerily accurate.

I fully identify with the "boosted independence" and "positive attitude to life" that she tells me about – although I would not have given it all to the Jupiter in my chart. I leave the session with the feeling that I am ready to "break with tradition."

My personalized itinerary for Sydney also sounds true, with the emphasis on 'very good sheets' and 'all good quality things', and I approve proposals to 'enjoy the view of the harbor' and eat a hearty meal in the nearby Duck Inn.

Towards the end I cannot say that the astrological will touch, from zodiac-themed books at the reception to the & # 39; enter the bullpen at your own risk & # 39; personalized do not disturb sign that I am getting left & aligned with my & # 39; But I loved my stay at the simple, stylish hotel with sheets that every Taurean would approve of – and Pia & # 39; s intuitive interpretation of my horoscope stays with me long after I check out.
