“Lovely apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

My wife, our 14 month baby son and I stayed for two nights and we loved it. Right on the darling harbor, walking distance to great restaurants and most Sydney attractions. Well appointed apartment with modern furniture and fittings. We got a 1 room unit so we won't disturb our son while he slept. Friendly and efficient staff, very helpful. 24 hr convenience store right round the corner. We will definitely be staying here next time we are in Sydney.

Stayed here with 2 friends on a girls weekend in Sydney. Our flight arrived very early and we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived that the room was ready and we could go straight up. We had a 1 bedroom with Harbour view, it was great. The balcony was huge and we were on the corner of the hotel.

They split the king bed down to 2 x single beds, and brought in a rollaway that was the most comfortable i've ever slept on - it was a proper bed mattress! We had full size fridge and kitchen. The bathroom was large and well stocked.

We had great service from every staff member we encountered, and we loved the location. We really didn't spend alot of time in the apartment, but we were very comfortable while we were there.

I would definitely book and stay here again.

My husband and I recently stayed at Adina Harbourside, a retreat away from our children in Queensland for a very special 30th birthday. We stayed in the most beautiful room on Level 5 - gorgeous clean decor, well appointed bathroom, very comfy bed and a spectacular view of Darling Harbour. The room was very big, extremely clean and so comfortable.

We loved being able to walk from the hotel to Darling Harbour - less than 5 minutes and we were spoilt for choice of bars and restaurants. There is a lovely coffee shop under the hotel where we got a morning coffee - a liquor store and convenience store also below the hotel.

The staff are all very helpful and polite - saying good morning in the hallways and lifts. The Receptionists were all lovely and our checkin and checkout experience was efficient, professional and cheeful.

We loved our stay and cannot wait until we get back down to Sydney so that we can stay at Adina Harbourside again!

Room Tip: Our room on Level 5 overlooked Darling Harbour and had lovely morning sunshine.

I stayed here last weekend as a quick stop over between work and uni, the reception staff were satisfactory but could have been more friendly, the room was great! nothing to fault in there, spotless and had everything you would need, the location is beautiful and down a more quiet street compared to some hotels in sydney. I just wish we decided on a room with a view! Would come back.

My room had a balcony overlooking the Harbour and was very clean and comfortable.
The staff at the reception was efficient and very pleasant. Thanks !

Stayed here a couple of nights during a recent business trip. Only 10 mins walk to the Sydney Convention centre and other Darling Harbour sights, so fabulous location. The room was very spacious with well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge area, two flat screen TVs, large modern bathroom, large bedroom with ample wardrobe/storage, and modern tasteful decor. Didn't have much to do with the lobby staff but they seemed pleasant, professional and competent. Booked room only a few days before arriving so got a pretty good deal, so excellent value for money compared to the going hotel rate in the Darling Harbour area. My room was on the 1st floor so not much of a view, but top floors facing the harbour would presumably have a great view.
