location is good, close to China market and Darling Harbour where plenty of place you can go especially for food lovers. Easy access to public transport and pretty much everything else. breakfast was too standard. cleanliness of the room and hotel is well maintained.

Situated next to the entertainment centre, this was the ideal stop to attend a sting & Paul Simon Concert. Given our need was simply a place to rest our heads rather than face a long trek home, the hotel was ideal and could not be bettered. clean and tidy bedroom with a good shower (and we are are very demanding...

Great location if you are attending a show at the Arena (entertainment centre) . Hotel is clean and modern . Pumphouse next door is a great find for a drink but be warned if a show is on it is packed and almost impossible to get a table so get there early. Car parking was a problem, as we have... More

My wife and I stayed here for a week sightseeing in Sydney. It was comfortable and relatively central. Certainly, we could walk through the park to Darling Harbour's restaurants. As a base fir a holiday, it was ideal.

I'm surprised if this is rated 4-star! No way - Just a basic hotel. However excellent position for Darling Harbour and all the vibrant restaurants. Room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Reception staff very helpful. The restaurant for breakfast needs a re-furb - food just average but adequate. Construction work going on alongside but as we weren't in the hotel... More

Generally pretty regular hotel of the standard you expect from Accor. I had a minor glitch with the TV one evening which was fixed promptly. It was due to Foxtel playing around - not lack of care by hotel. Only minor complaint is that seating in the restaurant for breakfast beside the window gets the blast of the air-con so... More

I stayed in Novotel for a weekend in a standard room overlooking a street/apartment building. The location was great in case you want to stay mainly in the surrounding area. The restaurants in Darling Harbour were amazing right at the water and the hotel is situated right next to the Marine museum, I max and aquarium. It was in the... More

Filthy rooms, furniture from the 70's, unreliable wi-fi, processed carb breakfast buffet. Avoid at all costs. For the money, there are so many better hotels near the harbor. Am amazed it claims to be 4 star. I stayed in a standard room on the 5th floor.

Having been disappointed Sydney hotels over the years this one wasn't too bad. We had the standard king which meant NOT overlooking Chinese gardens but that was ok since that side also overlooks a busy road. Ended up in room 324 which has a lovely tree outside the window thankfully obstructing the ugly buildings .room 324 would be the same.... More
