The biggest problem with these apartments is the front desk. They are under staffed (we waited for approximately 20 minutes anytime we needed to use the front desk), and not overly friendly. However, the price was reasonable, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the location was great. I wouldn't bother paying the money for a harbour view. Great... More

Thank you for sharing your post. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the rooms and found the standard to be favourable. I apologise for the wait that you faced during your dealing with front desk. Check in and check out times can get very business in the foyer which can lead to delays. I will endeavour to... More

The properety is well located and has an excellent staff. Our 2 bed apartment on the 12th floor was a good size and was clean and tidy, but very much in need of some TLC (decorating, threadbare couches etc). Staff excellent and a decent coffe shop right outside the front door. Walkway from level 2 directly across to Darling harbour... More

We booked in for 3 nights and spent the first night on the second floor where the room entry is through a metal fence which felt creepy and like a prison - i felt quite claustophobic inside the apartment which was very dark. We decided to request a room change if possible especially as we had requested a room with... More

Loved the modern decor. Pity there was no view from the room, except of a parking garage. Loved the pool and spa - to die for. But was a bit annoying that you were required to shower and change in this area before returning to your room (as they will not let you walk back to your room wearing bathers/towel... More

We stayed the week around Christmas. l can see some other reviewers say how great the service was - maybe is was from the discussion l had with the night clerk on checkout that the improvements came. The location is fantastic, and having access to a kitchenette and washer dryer is a real bonus on a vacation. We arrived at... More

Thank you for your post. In relation to some of the points you raised I am extremely sorry that your room was left unlocked by who you presume was the cleaner. This is extremely unacceptable and I have addressed this as well as the housekeeping issues you raised with the head housekeeping manager. With all due respect the parking situation... More

I found this hotel really interesting. I believe it was a former wool storage or something like that? We had a 2 room apartment. The apartment is on 2 levels. Our bedroom was facing the middle of the hotel which was only annoying because of all the footsteps we could hear throughout the night. But the other bedroom was great.... More

Thank you for your post. You are correct in that the building is an old wool store that was originally built in the late 1800’s. The timber beams and flooring are the original material used. While this creates a great historic look and maintains the authenticity in which the building was created, you are right in that it can sometimes... More

Firstly let me say that as first timers to Sydney we were looking for value for money - we also had our youngest son with us (he is 15). On the whole this accomodation was OK - like everything in AUS - anything extra cost more, so it was here with a bed settee costing an extra $44 per night... More

we booked a "room" through an agent for a week for 1000 buck. (don't worry, It is normal in Sydney) I still can't decide which part was the worst of our stay, the pop-up bed from the wardrobe, the leaking washing machine, or the view to the firewall. When outside the temperature was around 30, I was freezing in the... More
