“Nice modern rooms & great location!”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

My partner and I stayed at the Darling Harbour Novotel for 5 nights in August while on holiday. The room was nice and modern with a great view out over Darling Harbour. We needed to extend our original booking by one night at the last minute due to illness unfortunately and the staff were very helpful with this. They found us a room only two doors away which made this a lot less painful of a move.

This hotel is located in front of darling harbor. walking distance to the opera, the harbor, china town and only 15 minutes to downtown. Also available was sky train that can get you around Sydney but the ticket is quite expensive.I prefer to walk.
The rooms are spacious but nothing great. Very basic also the bathrooms. The walls are quit thin so I can hear the housekeeping cleaning the other room.
The internet is slow and with charges.
The staff is OK..I have stayed in this hotel a number of times and the staffs attitude varies. Sometimes they are friendly and helpful but other times they can be rude, unfriendly and unhelpful. It really depends on the person who attends to you so it's by luck!!!
On my last trip, I was given a room where it was occupied. When I tried to open my room, I couldn't access it because someone was inside. I had to go back down and tell them and the person who assisted was apologetic and tried to make it up by upgrading me to a suite. No difference though except for the room being more spacious than the "normal rooms".

This hotel has a very good location, right on Darling Harbour, Walkind distance from the hotels you have Malls, restaurants and a few places like amusement park for children etc. The rooms of the Hotel are decent and comfortable, but the best part of the hotel is its location.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the Harbour

The room was lovely and clean and we loved the views of the city at night ... but it wasn't the best location for us as we spent most of our time in the city and we were back and forth from the city which got a bit tiresome.... While the monorail and light rail (tram) were right at our door step we got sick of paying and waiting for them.

The hotel was good. I ordered the indulgence package because it was a very special occasion. The room was suppose to have chocolates and a bottle of champagne on arrival but this was missing. A mix up between the on line booking and the hotel. I would rather book directly with the hotel to eliminate these problems
