I have good sleep at the hotel as the bed is really comfortable. Location is good as it's right beside China Town and there is a tram nearby to go to fish market for breakfasts. Staff are quite helpful too. Although the interior is a bit old, I still have a pleasent stay there.

The rooms were clean and for a one night stay, spacious. Beds were comfortable with a great selection of pillows for fussy sleepers. I would say that the location is on the fringe of Darling Harbour being closer to China Town. Parking is tricky to find and once in the parking area, it is not entirely straight forward as to...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Darling Harbour for several nights during our recent free-n-easy holiday in Sydney. Holiday Inn Darling Harbour is centrally located at 68 Harbour Street, and is within close proximity to a number of amenities, popular restaurants, cafes and attractions such as Paddy's Market, Market City, Chinatown, Chinese Garden of Friendship and the ever busy, bustling...

Me and family of 4 stayed in Holiday Inn for 5 nights from 5 to 10 Dec. To me its about location. The price of each room was quite hefty as we had to book 2 rooms, much much more expensive than the suburbs in bankstown where I spend 3 nites before this. However since we were given an interconnecting... More

The location is great but the list of things not included is much longer than what is included. No valet parking - in fact no on-site parking at all. You need to drive around the block and walk back to the hotel which makes it difficult with bags etc. Empty mini bar in the room. No bottled water. No Laundry... More

You get what you'd expect. The location is pretty good (basically where Chinatown, Darling Harbor, and the CBD meet). I think it's a bit expensive for what you get, though, but a lot of that is just Sydney being expensive. If you're thinking of having breakfast at the hotel, pre-book it (i.e. get the $10 add-on room rate) otherwise it's... More

This Holiday Inn is nothing to write home about but it does its job. It is directly across the street from the Qantas Center so if you are going to a concert/event there this is the ideal place to stay. You are also 5 minutes from Darling Harbour. The rooms are average, but let's face it you aren't in Sydney... More

They are a bit slow in room making, we booked two rooms and they couldnt give us adjacent rooms and we have to wait awhile for the second room. But the staffs were nice and they granted us free wifi since I have membership of IGH. You can walk to the Central Station within 10mins. From there you can go... More

Great location for Darling Harbour, food and drink was of a high standard. Staff were friendly and very helpful and always on hand to advise on where to go in Sydney. Breakfast was a buffet style and had plenty to choose from, full English, continental style or both !! Room was great everything we needed for a short city break.
