This may not have the best street appeal, but I would highly recommend it. It's Chinatown precinct (Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine is a must: it is almost downstairs and serves exceptional food: and I only had takeaway!). Good find and accommodating staff when I dealt with them,but I was a bit surprised trying to check out at 7am and... More

This hotel is located smack dab in chinatown. With great access to pretty much anywhere. The rooms were kind of small but perfect as a base, used for sleeping. Prices are good and location is better...

Let me start with the positives. The staff are friendly and polite. Now the negatives. The light blocking curtains did not close so a beam of light entered the room all night and also in the morning the sunlight entered the room. The toilet did not flush properly and the cistern ran all night. The carpets were stained. These apartments... More

I was a little disappointed with this hotel. The location is good with just a short walk to Darling Harbour, China Town and World Square, however the laneway is grubby and smelly during the day due to the rubbish from the restaurants that line it. The hotel was decorated in the early 90s and feels a little like it's stuck... More

Dirty, Cold, Noisy and random people screaming inside the 7th floor at 2:30am. Wake up, head outside to over flowing wheelie bins of rubbish. Checked out after 1 night and went to the Novotel , Central Station. Much , much better.

My husband and I stayed at the APX apartments for 2 nights while on business in Sydney. We took the train from the airport so we had a bit of a walk from the train station.

Stayed at this appt. Took out accommodation fee twice from credit card. The first room smelt so got another room. Shower was filthy and grimey. Staff not very helpful or friendly. Dated furniture. In the middle of dirty Chinatown. Very disappointed.

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.
