“Good budget hotel near Darling Harbour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Six night business trip to Sydney, conference in Cockle Bay and work in North Sydney.

This hotel has proved to be in the ideal location for a business trip to Sydney - close to Darling Harbour conference venues, and evening restaurants, as well as Wynyard train station for the airport and North Sydney office locations.

It's very like Euro IBIS - clean, efficient but smaller rooms, good mid-priced breakfast - but has exceptionally friendly staff. Though none of the rooms are exactly large, or have views, when they saw I was in for 6 nits they made the effort to move me after one night to a top floor room to the nicest room they could find. Very much appreciated!

Wifi and breakfast are extra and so can add almost $50 to your daily bill if you use them, but that's up to you.

In all, recommended for the location alone.

We arrived early in the morning. We didn't expect to be able to check in at such an early hour but was pleasantly surprised when we were told that our room was ready. Very friendly staff who gave some suggestions for places to visit as well as directions on how to get there. Room has all the basic amenities, is clean and spacious. No free wifi in the room but available in the hotel lobby. Hotel location is pretty ideal as it is about 3-4 blocks away from Wynyard Station. We took the train from the airport and it was a 20 minute ride to the station and less than 10 minutes walk to the hotel. Hotel is also within walking distance of the harbour, where all the sights and sounds are and also within walking distance to the CBD. We also walked to the Fish Market which took us about 20 minutes. Overall, an ideal location for tourists as most of the sights and sounds are within walking distance.

Stayed at the Ibis recently as was attending a conference at the SCEC in Darling Harbour (an easy 15 minute walk from the hotel).

Nothing is too much trouble for the very friendly staff. As I was sitting the foyer doing some work, I overheard the Receptionist proudly greet someone with a 'welcome back' - good to see they acknowledge repeat visitors.

Rooms are clean, basic, but with all the mod cons you need to have a very comfortable stay.

Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to be out during the day, and who needs somewhere close to Darling Harbour, restaurants, cafes and within walking distance to the main CBD as well.
