We stayed here 30th Nov - 6th Dec. Location is terrific - right on Darling Harbour next to plenty of bars & restaurants and all the entertainment of Darling Harbour. Its right next to Sydney Aquarium . Wynyard Station is four blocks away with direct access to the airport. Sydney Ferries terminal is a short stroll away and there is a new harbourside walkway that takes you to Circular Quay & the Bridge - a great morning run ! We had an apartment & self catered. It was spacious & well equipped with a balcony & harbour views. However you won't have a peaceful drink on the balcony ( though the room was quiet & sleep not a problem) as the hotel is right next to a busy expressway. However a pedestrian bridge / lift gets you across this into central Sydney & the heart of the shopping on George St. There is a mini Coles supermarket & bottle shop on the corner of George & King St so self catering is easy. Its pretty unbeatable for value in central Sydney if you want to self cater. Staff were terrific, helpful & friendly. Wi Fi is available ( 30 free mins then paid for). We would certainly stay here again when in Sydney.
