Though the self-contained appartments need modernization and I'd judge the staff average for Oz on service, and though you have to pay for wi-fi, in real estate, as everyone knows, its location, location, location! - and you'd be hard pressed to find a more conveniently placed hotel for the price in Sydney. The city ferries stop 30 metres from the... More

Fantastic view of Sydney Harbour Bridge from the apartment window. The water taxi to Circular Quay or Darling Harbour is available on the door step. Great walk around the north harbour from the apartment. Helpful staff on reception.

Stayed here in 2006 and again in February 2014. Amazing, iconic views of Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Its very well situated, only steps away from McMahons Point which is two stops away from Circular Quay, 7 minute walk from North Sydney station, and close to Blues Point Road, a lovely street with cafes and shops. The studio apartment is... More

My boyfriend and I booked a room very last minute for two reasons: FREE PARKING (literally impossible to find when staying in Sydney, we were stoked) and the amazing location. When we arrived we spent a while looking for the actual hotel as it's through a road between two buildings. It's signed but maybe we just didn't pay enough attention!... More

We stayed here 4 nights and appreciated many aspects of the place. The unit is a decent sized studio, with a queen-sized bed, a kitchenette, and a private bath. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had most of the basics provided: electric kettle with tea and coffee makings (even a small carton of milk in the refrigerator), dishes and... More

On our recent trip to Sydney we stayed at the Harbourside Apartments. This was not our first choice of location, but due to the Mardi Gras being the same weekend, accommodation was not easy to find. Arriving late after a big day we were disappointed when we arrived at our room. The room prices were not cheap and we were... More

Firstly I would like to say how beautiful the view was and how clean the room was. Although our stay and view was wonderful I felt the need to email a complaint as the customer service provided from one lady was inexcusable. As I was checking, in your staff ask for a credit card to take a copy of the... More

Dear Kirsten, Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay. I note your reservation was made via wotif, and their booking terms require prepayment, but the booking policy stated on the wotif website for our property is “Credit card deposit is also required for incidentals” this is clearly stated on the main page of the wotif website. I understand... More

Firstly, make sure you tell taxi driver that you are staying at Harbourside Apartment not harbourview hotel or else they will make that mistake and it will cost you another $10 can fare to correct it. The apartment itself is very dated and tired but it was clean and has all that you need. The ferries run directly out front... More

First floor didnt have such great views but considering i booked so late in the year for the busy NYE period we were lucky to get any apartment. It was an older style but rooms were spacious and comfortable. Next time I'm coming back to stay in a renovated apartment up on a higher floor. I could sit all day... More

For an unequalled view of Sydney’s Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, at a reasonable cost, stay here. While this location was perfect for my business stay it may not be perfect for you if you need to be on the Opera House side of the bay for most of the day. If you are staying in Sydney for 3...
