The hotel is centrally located and very comfortable. Staff was very cooperative. Serves Indian food with limited menu but worth trying. I would strongly recommend for family and leisure stay. The breakfast served is full variety and lavishly served. The location is convenient to use public transport for exploring the city. Adjacent to the hotel is China Town. The downtown... More

I was there in February. Good location, walking distance from city center and University; just in front of Qantas arena. Lot of restaurants and markets. Nice and clean rooms, very comfortable beds. Wifi is free in rooms and common areas.

Location is perfect for all activities in the Sydney CBD. 1 block from busy George St, 100 mtrs to Paddys Market. Room was big enough and bed was comfortable. Bathroom a little small. No outside noises. Buffet Breakfast was usual fair. Will definitely stay here again

This is the second time I have stayed here, both for business. The rooms are very comfortable, included is a desk, arm chair, iron and ironing board, T.V. and tea and coffee making facilities. The beds are extremely comfortable and they offer both firm and soft pillows, which is one of my favourite features. The staff are friendly, without being... More

Mt partner and I enjoyed a long weekend break in darling Harbour and thought the Holiday Inn looked nice. It is well positioned in Darling Harbour and the walk to George & Pitt Streets isn't too taxing. What they don't tell you is that Darling Harbour is one big construction site and will be for the next few years. The... More

Nice Clean Rooms. Friendly Staff. Value for Money. If you are looking for an Economical Accommodation option than this is a good choice. Only breakfast is an issue for Vegetarians. But still you can manage with Fruits, Juices, Cornflakes with milk and dry fruits.Bread with Honey, Butter and other sauces.

Normally I avoid this chain so the review may be a bit biased. The hotel caters to big groups of conducted tours and service is a distinct casualty. The rooms are also very small and normally with no view. Avoid taking the lower floors and particularly the 1st floor. The higher rooms are definitely better. However, the location is very... More
