“Great Apartments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

The apartment was roomy we had two bathrooms and even a laundry in the room. We stayed two nights. The balcony was large and had a great view of the city. No problems at all, great stay. We had breakfast on the casino floor and it was nice and plenty to choose from.

Room Tip: The room had a great large balcony, no furniture on it, but a great view of sydney.

Stayed in the Pyrmont view hotel room for two nights in March. After what was a stressful start for family staying in other rooms with reception insisting that we didn't have any booking there as it was cancelled a few months ago, it finally ended up being a great stay! Really good location being only a 5 minute walk to the Darling Harbour restaurants and Pyrmont Bridge. Best part is definitely the atmosphere of the casino! Room service was really fast and really delicious!!
Just one tip - make sure that you don't connect too many electrical devices at once as you will short the power to your room!!

Stayed here one night while on business. The hotel is modern and clean, front desk service is excellent. We arrived in Sydney at 6 a.m. on a flight from the US and the hotel was able to give us an early checkin by 8 a.m. We all appreciated this very much. Thanks.
There was a bit of crowd and noise from the x-factor participants but it became part of the experience. Overall, I would stay here again.

Having read the reports I belvied I would have a horeendous time.

booked in via a WotIf mysytery special and to be honest was not looking forward to the stay.

checked in and got an upgrade from the Tower to the Residence as I was staying three nights. reception staff very helpful.

The apartments was clean and fairly modern with a view of Pyrmont.

Only quibble was the TV in the bedroom didn't seem to want to work.

On this experience I would seriously consider visiting again if I need to be in the Darling Harbour area

Its my first time stay in Astral Tower. I love it so much! And if i come back again to Sydney, this will be my TOP choice. The hotel was equipped with lots of branded shops like Gucci, Bottega, etc and open till late. There is a light rail train below the hotel. And a short and refreshing walk to Darling Harbour. The Garden Buffet Dinner itself was a real treat!! Sadly the luxury property and the friendliness was tainted by a stressful staff in Garden Buffet Dinner.

Stayed last night here for one night in a 2 bedroom apartment. The rooms were luxurious, fabulous sized kitchen to help entertain, 2 beautiful bathrooms ( with full sized bath in the ensuite to the main). Killer view of the city skyline including views of the harbour bridge. Access to the the hotels well appointed gym and spa. The heated pool which is half indoor half out door looked perfect to relax in after a big work out or day in the city.
Over all a great city escape and easy access to Sydney's casino The star. The only down side to our personal experience was food poisoning from the buffet in the casino it self from a dodgy prawn. Perhaps my own fault for being a seafood novice. Highly recommend the accommodation, just not the prawns.

We got a great rate from a wotif mystery special and were excited to stay. So excited that we upgraded to a two bedroom apartment and took our sons aged 18 and 20 along.They loved the casino, me not so much but enjoyed a show at the lyric theatre and enjoyed dinner at the Fat Noodle which was in the casino itself. Really good food and friendly service.
The apartment was a strange configuration - one king bed and one double. The double bed was as hard as a rock but I heard the king bed was comfortable. The apartment was a good size with two bathrooms and the Kitchen well equipped. The lounge and one chair were uncomfortable and decor bland but everything was exceptionally clean and really if you are staying here you probably won't be in your room much as you have the casino downstairs and Darling Harbour on your doorstep so plenty of entertainment.
Reception was slow but friendly and the staff were very friendly and helpful when I had to ring about leaving my watch in my room.
I would stay here again if I got a good rate and I would explore the area a bit more next time.

Room Tip: 10th floor pyrmont side was exceptionally quiet
