Pros: 1. Beautiful view of the city! 2. Happy hour specials were excellent value! 3. Staff was friendly, though needed nudging Cons: 1. A bit of a walk to restaurants at night. 2. Beware rooms close to the ground floor. You're right under a train track and it is VERY noisy on these low floors. I asked to move up,... More

There is northing particularly terrible about the harborview, but it's a very uninspiring place to stay. The view is fantastic of course if you get a room on the right side, too bad if you don't. The rooms are all fairly new but small. If you get a room on anything lower than level 7 than don't even think about... More

Lovely views, nice standard hotel - but don't pay full price. We had a deal and so it made it worth it. Very convenient to North Sydney Station, but the quick stroll to Luna Park/pool involved 100 + stairs - tricky with little ones. Room was comfortable and modern. We were on the 2nd floor (probably because it was a... More

This hotel is a nice older style hotel located in a convenient location (North Sydney Train Stop). The hotel itself has a decent view looking into Lavender bay and at the Harbour Bridge from the south side of the building. It is a short walk to Luna Park where you can catch one of two water ferries and a bus.... More

Most visitors tend to think of hotels on Sydney Harbour as including views of either the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay and The Rocks, or all four. In reality it's either very unlikely or very expensive to achieve all this from one location. However, if you think outside the square and travel north over the Harbour... More

I have stayed here on seveal occasions in the last few years and once again had a pleasant stay. The staff are friendly and the buffet breakfast always offers great choices. The rooms on the lower floors do suffer from a little bit of noise and vibration from the railway line underneath the hotel but is not a major problem. Only 100m... More

Great place to stay but don't get a room on the lower floors as the trains will wake you up early in the morning. I would recommend that you request the rooms with the view of the harbour as some rooms only look out over North Sydney. Staff are friendly and professional and always willing to help. Meals are okay... More

As a business traveller who likes everything to work well and without fuss, I always look forward to visiting North Sydney clients and staying at this hotel. Provided you know to ask for a harbour view and a floor above, say, the 8th, to avoid train noise, then you're in for a great stay. The view is phenomenal, the beds... More

In total, I have stayed at the North Sydney Harbourview 6 times. The last time I visited was with my partner and were staying here for the Mardi Gras celebration. Not only did they jack the prices up sky high to profit off the occasion they also decided to discriminate against us because we were gay. On all the other... More
