Room was spacious and clean it was central to everything ... Staff were friendly and very helpful .. Would definitely recommend... More

Recently stayed a Friday night in a one bedroom apartment on the 5th floor. The noise was unbelievable! The two of us checked the windows and doors 3 times thinking maybe they weren't closed properly because the noise was so loud and so clear that it was like we were standing on the street instead of the on the 5th...

We booked a one bedroom apartment and it was disgusting! Almost every surface was covered in thick dust. Mould in the shower and on the ceiling of the shower. Filthy tiles, stains on the couch - long black hairs stuck to the front of the fridge, sticky greasy filth under the microwave. Paint work chipping - windows so filthy you... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a one bed room apartment. Room is old and the air condition is poor. I was woke up couple times due to the cold, even the air condition unit set at 25 degree. Location is good, close to everything. Would only recommended if there are no other options.

We booked this for the city to surf weekend and weren't impressed. Was the worst bed I have ever slept in - hard with the springs sagging and so uncomfortable. It was very noisy and you could easily hear the traffic and people on the street as well as the lift and banging of doors in the hallway all night.... More

My partner and I drove to Sydney from Brisbane and we chose the Seasons due to good price for its location (special deal on accommodation website) and car park availability. The car park is one way down and up, so if another car was coming in the opposite direction, you would have to use the bays provided (which some inconsiderate... More

Checked into the room and the first impression was ... Less than impressive. It's ok but jut that.. Ok. Stains on the carpet leave it looking rather dirty though on further investigation it wasn't too bad, the one next door though was worse. The penthouse they tried to upgrade us to worse yet again! They outsource their housekeeping so find... More

We were booked to stay at Seasons Darling Harbor but were redirected to this hotel due to high demand. I had stayed here when it was much more expensive as The Sommerset. Apartments are immaculate and spacious. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great value.You couldn't beat it for the best central Sydney location.
