Really great location, recommend if travelling from airport to city, just jump on the train and go straight to north Sydney line. So easy and around $60 cheaper than a cab. Recommend a room with a harbour view, pay the extra $20 great views. Recommend this hotel for business or pleasure, a really good stay and will be staying here again soon.

I stayed here while on a business trip in North Sydney. The room and hotel were presented well with great views of the Harbour Bridge and the City.'

The staff were friendly, professional and helpful whenever I needed them.

The hotel was next door to the train station and has a taxi rank out the front which made it easy to get around. There is a shopping centre across the road and plenty of pubs and cafes nearby.

I will stay here again if I'm in the area but will definately request a room high in the building as it took a couple of nights to get used to the noise and vibrations when ever a train passed underneath the building!

Room Tip: Ask for a room up high to try to avoid the noisy trains!

was very good. very clean, comfortable bed and friendly staff. Bar was very busy and staff attentive. views amazing. Location is perfect for luna park as it is only a short walk. My husband stays min of 3 days per week and has used the restaurant and found the food to be good. Was hoping to stay for new year but prices so expensive intfact on par with 5 star hotels.

Room Tip: high floor with harbour views

I have stayed here several times and have never had a bad stay. The view is always excellent and the service always good. Breakfast is ample and the rooms comfortable.

The only drawback is the trains rumbling underneath, but requesting a high floor at the western end of the hotel puts paid to that problem. Convenient location, right above North Sydney train station and buses to city and northern suburbs at the front door.

Room Tip: High floor, western end.

I've stayed at Nth Sydney Harbourview a few time and on colleagues advise have request higher floor to avoid train noise. But this time on 9th floor section immediately above train station I hear and felt every train.
Never agin.

Views are fantastic, but sleep is a must.

Our recent stay at this hotel was not at all what we expected. We stayed because we had a party to go to nearby and we were very disappointed. We booked a harbour view room and upon arrival were delighted to find we were given the top storey. I thought finally after years and years of staying in hotels we have been given top floor. Well, what a disappointment we had to request another room as our room was located directly under the air conditioning unit and the noise was unbearable, this room should not have been allocated to anyone. It took them about half an hour to relocate us which was fine so we thought we will go to the bar and have a drink, unfortunately it was not open - although according to the opening hours it should have been, we couldn't even get a cup of coffee. Eventually we returned to our newly allocated room. Upon leaving the hotel at around 6.00pm to attend the party we noticed that there were a lot of dirty dishes on the floor directly outside the elevators on our level, well guess what they were still there in the morning so I mentioned it to the reception staff. However, they were still there when we vacated at around 11.00pm. Surely this would have been a health and safety issue. Not at all impressed with this establishment

Room Tip: Don't book the top floor

We stayed at the Harbourview North Sydney to celebrate a birthday we had two great rooms on 9th floor which overlook spectacular Sydney harbour. We had uninterrupted views of the Sydney harbour bridge but couldn't see the Opera House. You also get a good view of cruise ships parked at the overseas passenger terminal.

The rooms are adequate in size, the bed comfortable and there are two chairs and a small table. The bathroom is on the small side but for an overnight stay or even a few nights the room is suitable. The view is amazing so you could just sit and watch the view and the many boats moving around the harbour.

The buffet breakfast was plentiful, fresh and very tasty and the service overall at the hotel was great.

I would stay again and can thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Sydney and as the hotel is a short walk from North Sydney train station it is very convenient to travel to. There is also a taxi rank right out the front and so it is very easy to take a taxi into the city for drop off to overseas passenger terminal if you have a cruise booked, dinner at one of the many fabulous restaurants or sight seeing at one of the many attractions around Sydney.
