The location is actually pretty good, mid way between Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. A short walk to both and many Sydney attractions. Unless you want to go to Bondi or further afield you dont need a car. (they can provide parking at $35 a night which is not unreasonable in Sydney). They are two block from Wynyard Station on...

The kitchen, bath and bedroom are fine, but for the price there is definitely far better in Sydney. If you're on the top level, your apartment will definitely rumble all night. If you're adjacent to the construction, the generators will run all night. The fixtures and furnishings are flat out shabby, and the cost of amenities which should be complimentary... More

Some websites actually say this is a 4 star establishment. I reckon that's false advertising - it's a normal serviced apartments (although we stayed there for 5 nights but our room wasn't serviced - we had to ask for more toilet paper, fresh towels, etc.). Inside our room, it looks like a standard motel room with a small kitchenette at... More

I visited Sydney in Jan 2014 and stayed in this Napoleon hotel for 4 nights with a great rate for this peak travel season. It was so convenient and close to everything. Room is spacious, tidy and clean. We really did enjoy our time spent there and it will be our first choice if we go there again during the... More

This hotel is hard to find!! It is in a good location as it is close to the Rocks, Circular Quay, and Darling Harbor but it is a bit hard to locate. Nice rooms and clean. The front desk isn't open 24 hours as it is more apartments than a hotel. We enjoyed our stay and the people at the... More

We stayed at this hotel on a recent trip to Sydney for a family event. The hotel is situated under a major expressway and traffic noise is a problem but is close to the cruise ship wharf. The rooms are tired but we found them clean and comfortable. The staff were excellent and very friendly and helpful. They were the... More

Although we only stayed for one night, We could not fault this apartment property. The apartment was spacious and exceptionally clean. Although there were construction works going on quite close it was not noticeable in the apartment. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Close to good eating places and quite close to Circular... More

We stayed at the Napoleon on Kent after arriving in Sydney after a cruise. The staff member on duty when we arrived was very friendly and helpful. He held our bags and gave us some advice about free walking tours of the city CBD. Our room was fine and had everything we needed. The room overlooked some construction but we... More

What a dump! On entering the room we were greeted by a musty smell. The vinyl couch was ripped and peeling. One of the 2 chairs in the room was broken and the bathroom door was dirty. We weren't advised till I asked about extra bath towels (extra cost) and I also had to ask for toilet paper as there... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with hubby, bub and a toddler. The location is awesome: 10 minutes walk to darling Harbour, 15 to the Opera House. The apartment had a great set up with the kitchen and living areas serving us well. The flyover (highway) overhead didn't bother us at all. My only complaint is that housekeeping really do... More
