Good tourist spot

Nice hotel with interesting architecture, can't complain about having a full kitchen and clothing washer/dryer in unit. they even provide powder for the clothing washer. most the tourist things to do in sydney can be walked to, for further things central train station and circular quay are a modest walk away. everything is card reader secured, including exterior doors, elevators, and room door and it's in a nice neighborhood. If you worried about the charge for hotel internet, just use the internet over breakfast at the wonderful and cheap cafe right outside on the street level.

Some serious history

Well, the location is superb, located in the newly established darling harbour, in proximity to all tourist attrations and plenty of restaurants around. On the downside, the elevator apparently needs some renovation, which is undergoing as I visited. The atmosphere and the structure of the entire building is somewhat weird to me personally. Very good value of money nevertheless.

close to Darling Harbor

Unusual setting for a hotel. Really an apartment building that has rooms available per night or week etc. Room was OK. Eventually figured out a way to walk across the street thru a parking garage across the railroad track to Darling Harbor, which is beautiful. Paid $85 for week of unlimited internet service and it was VERY slow. Several calls to front desk wasn't very helpful but they did seem to want to help.

So convenient.

I had rung before hand and asked for a room with a balcony on a high level (quieter and more light). We had paid extra for a harbour view. (worth every cent) Level 11 room 1121. When I first walked into the unit I was very displeased. No balcony and the view was tainted by a huge building that was half demolished. The freeway was right THERE, almost under us. I was ready to go down and ask for a room change. But But... we then went for a walk. We found ourselves in the midst of loads of interesting sights and activity. People and cafes everywhere. The Pyrmont historical walk bridge lead us to the city - we'd only been walking for 15 minutes. We walked around the buzzy Darling Harbour and enjoyed the music and activity. As evening came we enjoyed the view from lounge window of all the amazing lights of Darling Harbour and the city. The Freeway added rather than detracted from the scene. At 9pm we were treated to fireworks (every Saturday evening on Darling Harbour).The rest of the week we walked to (found an easy access to D Harb through carpark) or caught the very convenient public transport - Light rail outside the building, bus to city at Darl Har Maritime Museum, Free shuttle up and down George St the city, Ferry from Darling Harbour. Each day we used the well equipped gym or swam in the 25m lap pool. Also watched with interest the further demolition of the building. Hotel staff very helpful and pleasant. Lift a bit slow but got used to it. Noisy as freeway close. Fine when windows closed. Windows only open slightly but aircon works well. Room serviced daily. Washing facilities and Kitchen make it convenient and keeps down costs.Supermarkets close. The proximity to the city and all the cafes and attractions make this a perfect place to stay. We stayed for a week and will go again.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

1. Go to level 2, out of lift, turn left and follow walkway to end of building, turn right onto carpark walkway. Follow signs which will take you to Harbourside shopping and cafe centre and Darling Harbour. Left down to level 4 takes you to Light rail station. 2. IGA supermarket opposite Novotel is the best for all groceries.

Good location

This is an apart hotel. Initial studio on floor seven rear, was poor with very little natural light. Moved to floor ten and completely different. Natural light and recently refurbished studio, this studio was brilliant.
