Stayed 1 night, arrived late from airport. Tried to get taxi from Central Station late at night- dont do it. very scary and no taxis around. Apparently we shouldve continued in on the train from the airport to the next stop and gotten off at Town Hall which is more lively and safer at night.
At the hotel:
Staff efficient and helpful, not chatty but not rude and helped with our queries. Not as much noise as we expected. There was a 9 Inch Nails concert on at Entertainment centre next door and we were on 3rd floor so expected the worst but didnt need to resort to our ear plugs. Aircon and fan in room were quite noisy which worked to our advantage and blocked a lot of the street noise.
Beds were comfortable, room was clean, good shower. Pool and breakfast were both fine.
Best thing was the location. Chinese garden was lovely, very relaxing. Close to Chinatown, N2 Extreme Gelato and Darling Harbour. Easy walk to Central Station in Daytime and they happily stored our bag while we wandered around Sydney for the day.
If staying again I would ask for a room on a higher floor, we got a deal through a booking company so expect this meant we were automatically put on a low floor and probably couldve had a quieter room if we booked direct with Accor/Novotel and paid a little more
