This hotel has a great location, but it's just average. You've got what you paid for. The breakfast was terrible on Sunday but great on Monday. The layout of the breakfast room doesn't help... It's terrible. The space for the buffet is so small that you can not be there more than 2 minutes... The bar is good and the... More

We arrived late on a Friday night ... by car. Enough said. Our GPS was out of sync with the one way streets that lead to the hotel & Chinatown was very busy so our arrival was a tad harrowing. There is a narrow rank to pull in outside the hotel with signs suggesting it is for buses only, which... More

The initial difficulty with this hotel is the parking. It is offsite, across the road and you need a map to find it. Once you find it, parking is about AUD30 per exit so if you plan to go in and out more than once in 24 hours, you are better paying the hotel valet AUD50 for 24 hours use... More

The hotel is 10-15' walking from darling harbour, so very central. The restaurant and the hall are modern and pretty, the staff helpful and kind. Our room was big but old (you can see pipelines above your head), the bathroom brand new but quite small. The breakfast was very good, with plenty of sweet and savoury food, hot and cold,... More

Stayed here back in March when we were going to see the Lion King and going on a Jet Boat ride departing from Darling Harbour. Brilliant location, nice and close to the theatre and just a quick walk down to the harbour, restaurants are close by, and plenty of other things are just a stone throws away. Would stay again...

the location of the hotel is within the city and you are never too far away from the clubs, chinatown and the harbour. Rooms are OK ( nothing to shout about ) since this is holiday inn after all.If you check in to this hotel, forget about the breakfast and just walk towards the many cafes and restaurants ( only...

My partner and I stayed for a night as part of a engagement present to see the Lion King. My to be mother in-law chose this place as it was close to the theatre. Having worked in the hotel industry for 10 years, it is very hard for me to find the WOW-factor in a lot of hotels, but this... More

Stayed here for 10 days in May. Location was perfect as easily accessible for Darling Harbour, Central Sydney and right next to China town. Excellent value for money. Staff from check-in to check-out were friendly and exceedingly helpful. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Sydney.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Darling Harbour. The hotel itself is a typical Holiday Inn that is a little long in the tooth. However, the friendly staff and great location more than make up for the age of the hotel. Also, the room was a good size, clean and quiet. Prompt elevator service was appreciated. They... More
