“I will come back here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

There were four of us in two adjoining rooms. Nice size rooms, Good size kitchen with all facilites. Bathroom great size. Beds were comfortable. Rooms were sunny. Our room was on the 4th floor.

Resturant down stairs had amazing food. Wine selection wasnt great though although there is a bottle shop right next door along with a convienance store which was handy.

Loved the location of the Hotel as it was close to Darling Harbour, resuturants and also water taxis. I would come back here without hesitation.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The staff at this hotel was extremely friendly. The location was awesome. The pictures of the hotel did NOT look the same as the room. It was clean, but on a four star scale it was about the same as a 3 star Best Western. Although comfortable, the hotel had a modern look but you can tell it was an older hotel. I just didn't get a good vibe of relaxation to this hotel. But like I said before, the staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. It costs 24 to 25 dollars for internet and you get to add another device for free. I stayed in a studio-type room where the "kitchenette" was in the closet. The fridge was stocked and of course you have to pay for anything you consume. The location was excellent for shopping and sightseeing; very easy to catch a bus or taxi. I suggest catching the green 555 bus that takes you through the inner loop of the city and drops you off in all the shopping areas to include Chinatown. By the way, this bus is FREE!

Overall, it was just a 'decent' stay. One more thing...check out is at 10 am...DISLIKE!

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your recent review.
I appreciate your nice comments in regards to how friendly and helpful the team were - please be assured these will be shared with them all.
I'm sorry you didn't feel the pictures reflected the rooms. I'm not quite sure which photos you are referring to but I suggest to view all travellers photos posted on forums such as tripadvisor which are all taken by previous hotel guests if you feel some photos may not be a true refIection.
I would also like to clarify that none of our kitchenette's are located in the closet and our mirrored wardrobes are all seperated to our kitchenette's.
If you would like to discuss any feedback in more detail please do not hesitate to contact the hotel directly on 02 9249 7000.

Kind Regards,

Malin Wigley

Nicely appointed rooms, great shower pressure and close to Darling Harbour. Cannot fault my stay, From here with a map you can walk anywhere in the CBD and over the harbour bridge. King St Wharf is 200m away for ferry access. Get on one and go!

We have just got back from staying here - one bedroom Premier View Apartment with balcony. Brilliant service when booking direct with them and sending through special requests - nothing is too much trouble for this service oriented management. The apartment exceeded our expectations - spacious, clean and well equipped. Very comfortable beds (we also had a rollaway for our third adult and he said it was even comfy!) Great powerful shower and excellent hairdryer. Both the bedroom and Lounge had block out curtains. Lovely views over Darling Harbour and yes there's the motorway 'hum' when outside (absolutely zero noise inside) but it's just background to the fabulous location this property is in. We caught a cab just outside front entrance - no need to book (longest wait was 3 minutes...shortest 2 seconds!). Train stations just a couple of blocks away, ferry on doorstep.....walked a couple of times to Westfield mid city...and I don't usually 'walk' anywhere...it was easy ...and great cafes, pubs, shops along the way. Had brunch one morning in the restaurant adjacent to the hotel - Mezbah...ok food (not great), service a bit surly from the guy... you can get way better from numerous restaurants either there at Darling Harbour or one block towards the city there are some great cafes. Several convenience (groceries etc) stores on the same block...one is 24/7.
For service, location, space and facilities I can't go past this Hotel....I've stayed in many in Sydney and the only one that can match it is Park Hyatt .... and that is way past the budget this time!!!! And...they don't have as many cafes, bars and shops as close to them! Well done Team Adina - you are doing it right. Thank you for a fantastic stay! Carolynn

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a Premier room...and a bit more if you like a water view.
