Have stayed here a few times as it's been in a convenient location for my needs but I'm not sure that I'd choose it if it wasn't across the road from the venue I needed to attend. The lastest room was on the side of the building and had a lot of noise from nearby businesses, bins, etc in the... More

I've stayed here before a few times and I like the location. The rooms could do with a bit of a refresh ( eg the toilet unit in the bathroom was old and the push button flush a bit loose). The desk staff are all very helpful and the bar ok. I have never had breakfast there as there's quite... More

Nice location in Darling Harbour.All staff we came into contact with were helpful and friendly.No complaints either about our room which was very clean and of a good size.If I have one small complaint it is that the hotel breakfast set up appears to be totally disorganised.

We had only gone here for a coffee. Slightly expensive but well worth it. We actually had a tinge of regret why we chose not to stay here instead of staying all the way at Paramatta. The pace is well connected and everything is at walking distance

This was my seventh stay here and I look forward to it. Following the usual overnight flight/early morning arrival in Sydney, the taxi dropped us off ~08.30. Luckily I was able to check straight in, shower and get down for breakfast. My room was a typical HI room, functional, though starting to get a little tired. I do like the... More

We were here for one night before our cruise to New Zealand. Very clean and amazing staff helped us to know we could safely walk to many locations, stores, restraurants and the market.

This hotel is right in the middle of Chinatown and very accessible to the whole city via public transportation. The room was comfortable and clean. It had a refrigerator that we used to store some snacks, which was great. The breakfast wasn't that great and was overpriced (just go out and get breakfast in the city somewhere or stash some...

We loved staying at the HI over the NYE. The room, the location, the service offered by the single employees was very good and can be totally recommended for a second stay. What was really bad and a pity have been the unbelieveable bad circumstances for the breakfast. The people in the breakfast room try to do their best, but... More

The Holiday Inn Darling Harbour is typical of the Holiday Inn brand, pleasant and comfortable with no real frills. This hotel is in a great location, 10 minutes walk from Darling Harbour,and close enough for a walk to The Rocks and the great views from there. I would stay here again.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighborhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theater, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
