Hotel is well located, but still is on a one-way so, if you have booked on some local tours, it is very likely that you have to walk down to some other location or hotel. That said, the hotel is at a comfortable walking distance from darling harbour attractions like wild life Sydney, aquarium, King Street wharfs and so on.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in room 123. Clean room with two queen sized beds on a mezzanine level. Free Wifi and Safe. Plenty of hot water for a shower or even a bath.

Great place to stay with breakfast included it was good value. We dined one night in the restaurant and were very pleased with the dining. The rooms were good, the beds very comfortable. Great to have a decent sized bone china cup as part of the tea making facilities. The site photos were a correct representation of our room.

We stayed here for one night before flying back to the UK and were pleasantly surprised by the location and by the hotel in general, given we'd picked it as an easy stop-over for the end of our holiday. As the name suggests it is an easy walk to Darling Harbour which is a lovely area with plenty of open... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighborhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theater, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Emanating a quiet charm right in the middle of the action, Holiday Inn Darling Harbour has the best that Sydney has to offer on its doorstep. A heritage listed former Wool Store cloaks the northern wing of the hotel in history. Situated in the Southern end of Sydney's central business district, the hotel is ideally positioned to allow you to make the most of your visit to Sydney. Take a leisurely stroll through Darling Harbour with its many attractions. The vibrant Chinatown and Latin Quarter are close by and the Qantas Credit Union Arena is right across the road. You can walk to some of Sydney's best restaurants, theatres and shopping complexes. For something a little different, board a ferry or the light rail for sightseeing. Trains and buses to Pitt Street Mall shopping precinct and Circular Quay are nearby too. ... more   less
