“Value with good location.”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

These apartments are well located to Darling Harbour, Chinatown, World Sq and Capital Sq. A 5 min walk to metro, tram. Still only a 30 min walk to Circular Quay. Great value. No views of significance from lower floors.

Room Tip: Possibly avoid inside facing lower rooms due to outside A/C noise

Excellent location. Friendly, helpful staff. Reasonably priced. Lower rooms at rear exposed to noisy plant and equipment - bring ear plugs! Had to ask for top-up of tea/coffee and plug for basin - but always met with understanding and helpfulness.

Room Tip: Away from lower rear.

This is a great place to stay. I booked by emailing the hotel directly and they could not have been more helpful and replied to my email almost instantly. The rate was cheaper booking this way as well. Upon check-in the staff were knowledgeable, polite and helpful. We only stayed for 2 nights and the room was clean and neat without even being serviced. The kitchenette was well equipped with fridge, microwave, toaster, plates etc. The bathroom was smallish but still neat and tidy. The bed was a zipped bed so it did have a seam which was a bit uncomfortable. The balcony is a great size however it does face directly into windows of the hotel opposite which does reduce privacy a bit. You can also hear your neighbors if they're on the balcony at the same time. The room is a great size, the staff are fantastic and the location is prime. You should stay here.

Room Tip: Go for the 'Executive studio' with private balcony, free WiFi and free in-house movies

Despite having a prepaid booking, APX apartments rang me to say that they did not have a room for me, and wanted to shift me to some other hotel. I had also sent them emails a month earlier to ask some questions, and they never bothered to reply to these... It also turns out that this hotel wants a $200 security deposit which you must pay on your credit card at check in... Very dodgy, and disorganised.

Dear Jake,
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your stay at APX Apartments Darling Harbour. Please accept my most sincere apologies for your dissatisfaction with your recent experience.
We had a maintenance issue with the room and had to place the room out of order as it could not be fixed on time. Since the hotel was fully booked out we had no other option than to relocate you to another Hotel at no extra cost.
In regards to the security deposit. This is not a dodgy practice as Hotel security deposits are a way for the hotel to ensure that they have money for incidental expenses like minibar and any damages that are caused to the hotel room. Unless there are damages to the room, you will receive a 100% refund. This is a standard practice applied at all the hotels across the world.
For your future travel it is recommended that a credit card is used for the hold as it wouldn't stop usage of that card, while a debit card would prevent you from using those funds (this also differs from bank to bank).
Your comments have certainly outlined areas for improvement and I have addressed each of the areas with the relevant department managers.
In the meantime; thank you again for taking the time to write.

Kind Regards
Raja Maniam

We stayed in Executive Studio room for 5 days and had a very positive experience. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Service was attentive but not intrusive and when we asked to replace the electric kettle, it was done in minutes. The kitchentte was well-equipped for basic cooking that we need to do for our baby. The utensils could have been cleaned a li'l better, though. Bathrooms were clean and we didn't have any problems whatsoever with noise from the street or other rooms.
Location of the apartments is absolutely awesome and we could walk to most of the places we visited - Darling Harbour, Aquarium, Tumbalong park etc. A number of good eating options are available close by.
Overall, perfect for a great, good value stay in Sydney.

I found the room a great size and my own private courtyard which I could have a cigarette, the check in staff were slow, but the room was great. Location is fantastic less than 5 minutes and your in Darling Harbor 5 minutes the other way in the middle of the CBD and 2 minutes from paddys market.

Walking distance to restaurants, bars and the train station. Room is nice and big with modern furniture and bathroom. Staff were very polite. The hotel is on a street of Asian restaurants (Chinatown) so it gets a little noisy outside around 5-7pm. After that it goes quiet again, had a good sleep couldn't hear any noise from other rooms.
