A very basic and tired 3 star hotel and if it wasn't for the location, it hasn't much else good to offer. If you decide to stay here, make sure you get a room in the more recently build part of the Hotel.

We live in Sydney but needed to go to a family wedding in the city so decided to stay near the reception at Darling Harbour. The Holiday Inn was in a very good location being only a 10 min walk to Darling Harbour and only a few blocks from the city center as well. The hotel is a bit dated... More

This hotel is perfectly located opposite the convention centre and only a small bit away from a mono rail stop. The hotel was spotless and has a small nice bar of a night cap. You are only a short cab or mono rail ride into Sydney.

Love the location and the beds and pillows but hate the fact that we had to unload our luggage from the rental car in the rain as this hotel doesn't have any form of shelter in front of the main entrance. And after checking-in, you have to drive to another building for the paid parking facility and again, not pleasant... More

Stayed here on round the world trip, good value for money and easy walking distance to the harbour. Hotel food was okay and staff really friendly hotel needs to allow free wifi as there seems to be a standard about all hotels in Australia that you have to pay for access.

The location is very good, Chinatown is at the back of the hotel, lots of Chinese and Asian food. Darling harbor is just 5-10 mins. walk. Hotel room is clean. Basic necessities are provided, breakfast buffet is basic continental, although fresh juice and coffee is great.
