Stayed here for one night as a single traveller attending Uni in Sydney. Location is good and the room was spacious and comfortable. Had a room on the street/freeway side so a bit noisy even through the double glass doors. Staff were friendly on Reception and breakfast the next morning was great. Coffee good too. Would stay again but would make sure I was on the Harbour side.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your positive review.
We are pleased to see you enjoyed the location of the hotel as well as the friendly service received from our team.
Perhaps on your next visit you can book one of our Premier room types which overlook the courtyard, aquarium or harbour instead.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Adina Apartment Hotel Sydney, Harbourside in the future.

I stayed there with my family last week. I had booked a one-beroom apartment online and thought that there would be a single foldable/sofa bed in the lounge. When we checked in I was asked to pay $50 a night for a single bed in the lounge in addition to $270 a night. When we checked out the hotel charged $26 for paying by credit card.

Room Tip: Ask for harbour side room for harbour view.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your recent review.
All rates online are for double occupancy- if a third traveller is staying an additional charge will apply which is stated on all websites and is also common practice in most hotels worldwide.
All credit cards attract a 1.5% surcharge to cover some of the fees charged by the banks - you always have the option to pay by cash or eftpos to avoid any surcharges.
Thank you again for your feedback and I hope you enjoyed your stay with us.

Kind Regards,

Malin Wigley

We were so happy we chose to stay at Adina , the views of the harbor were spectacular , hard to stop looking , very relaxing just sitting looking at the view. Everything about the place was nice , we had breakfast on the waterfront , also ate out at some great restaurants , but eating out is expensive in sydney , worth catching the ferry to rose bay for lunch .

Went for a business meeting. The view was the aquarium roof, it's very cynical to call it a harbour view. Arrived just after 9PM and restaurant was closed. No meal possible, and this is a place that charged me $400+ a room. Breakfast was drab but the coffee was good. The room itself was spacious and quiet enough. There was no curtain in the bedroom, I had to ask for one. That was odd.

Room Tip: I paid for a premium room which was quiet and well insulated.

Dear Valued Guest,

I'm sorry to read you found your stay with us just average.
I appreciate the feedback in relation to the restaurant and will be happy to pass this on to Mezbah, the outsourced restaurant onsite. All our Premier View apartments offer partial harbour view as stated on all websites and I'm sorry if you found this misleading.
I believe when referring to no curtain in the bedroom you actually mean the lounge area as naturally all bedrooms have block out curtains. We are currently in the process to install block out curtains in all lounge areas and this will be completed by the end of July.
Thank you again for your feedback, if you would like to discuss any aspect of your stay further, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the hotel.

Kind Regards,

Malin Wigley

Stayed in an interconnecting 1 bed/studio room on the 5th floor with my 4 sisters for a 4 day weekend. Have stayed at STAR also but this location is the most convenient to everything. Darling H, the Rocks, City, restaurants,attractions. The view we had was fantastic. Wrap around balcony, full kitchen. Although the main tv area was quite small it was ok for 5 of us and a bonus was we were altogether instead of 2 x 1 bed rooms which was the other option. I tried heaps of places. Criteria was a view and a balcony and a good spot and definitely price($90 each per night) and this accommodation topped them all.

Room Tip: There are rooms with different views. We had rooms 91 and 92 on the 5th floor - great!

I usually travel via hotel. This is a simple efficiency, but you benefit from many aspects. There's a separate living/dining/kitchen area. This is great if you want to separate kid sleeping areas from adults. Full kitchen allows for cooking/food storage. Dishwasher, washer/dryer also make things great, especially for an extended stay. Location is SPECTACULAR. There's much to see/do in Darling Harbour, you're a short walk to CBD, Pyrmont and the Star Casino, and ferries pick up right outside your door to many attractions. It's not a long walk to the Opera House, bridge, etc...

**My only recommendation is to not use the carry out service they recommend. All the restaurants have poor ratings and the one time we used it, it took 1 hour, 40 minutes to arrive and some of the dishes weren't fully cooked. No fault of the hotel, just avoid that service. Many options are walking distance.**

Room Tip: Our room was on the highway side and surprisingly, there was ZERO noise. Great insulated windows, so...

I have stayed here twice. Both times I have been really impressed. This is more like serviced apartments rather than a hotel.

Both times I stayed I had a huge apartment with a balcony overlooking Darling Harbour. I am not sure if this type of room is more expensive compared to a standard room as I was not paying for the room directly.

The rooms have fridges, cookers, irons. All the amenities you would need if staying for a long stay.

I would recommend this hotel for a stay, provided it was not over priced.

Room Tip: There are rooms with balconies over looking the water which are nice

It's so nice to read that you have stayed with us a twice and both times have been impressed with the apartment and its amenities.
By the sound of it you have been booked into one of our Premier apartments which all have an outlook of the aquarium, courtyard and/or partial harbour view. All our standard apartments overlook the city.
