Not at all as advertised - Stay Away!

Pros: Nothing. This property is tired, tacky, gloomy and has an overall dingy appearance. The only compliment I can offer is to the reception staff.
Cons: Everything. This property is in urgent need of renovation / redecoration.
Location: Plenty to do if you are prepared to walk quite long distances. The hotel is NOT next to the Darling Harbour attractions that it implies it is.
This hotel is NOT anything like it's advertising implies it is and the photographs it uses to promote itself are misleading. It definitely not on, or even next to, the waterfront that it's promotional photographs makes you believe it is. The property is in desperate need of maintenance, it is dark and gloomy and sandwiched between a noisy motorway. Shops and attractions are not nearly as close as their advertising suggest. It was so disappointing that I checked-in and booked out within an hour. The only compliment I am able to offer is to their friendly reception staff who seemed not all taken aback when I told them of my disappointment and checked out an hour after checking in. As I realise that this hotel has many positive reviews I should add that I travel extensively, spend around 120 nights per year in hotels and that I am not an occasional traveler who seldom experiences hotel living. My review (and I seldom post reviews) can hence be regarded as a qualified comparison.

It is concerning to hear we were unable to meet your expectations during your recent stay. Our units are currently undergoing renovations. As we have over 300 units it is a lengthy task however, we are looking forward to the completion as it will allow us to strive above and beyond all expectations. This is not the standard we strive to provide and I hope you provide us with an opportunity to regain your faith soon.

Average overall

Room fine, inside access to rooms at best quirky. I have stayed at a converted jail in Oxford that was more pleasant. The pool was not in use, the Internet not the best by any stretch. The worst bit of our stay was the appalling view from our bijou balcony. About 10 meters away was a car park wall that was painted a drab brown colour that extended for many meters either way and vertically for ever. Sunlight does not penetrate this far.

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.

Couldn't be better

Everything was perfect. Every possible amenity in our apartment, even down to washing powder and tea- towels, replaced every day. Wonderful view over Darling Harbour. Really central. Quiet and perfectly clean. Staff always friendly, courteous and helpful, but unobtrusive. We were delighted. The only downside was waiting for the lift, which could take quite a while at busy times.

Inexpensive hotel near Darling Harbour

The hotel has seen better days. It was a wool warehouse from 1896until a fire in 1935. It was refurbished after the fire and converted into a hotel in 1955. The interior resembles a clean prison block but it is not unpleasant, just a quirky appearance. The pool and spa area is good. It is about ten minutes walk from Darling Harbour and very good value. No ramps for disabled people.

Gute Lage, aber abgewohnt.

+ Die Apartments sind voll ausgestattet, inkl. Waschmaschine, Trockner und Geschirrspüler. Auch ein Backrohr ist vorhanden. Nur, wozu kochen, wenn am Darling Harbour das Angebot zum Sättigen überaus vielfältig und vielfach auch sehr preisgünstig ist? Das Zimmer ist groß, das Bad könnte etwas geräumiger sein. Schwimmbad und Sauna sind vorhanden. Aber: - Das Hotel ist sehr in die Jahre gekommen. War vor 50 Jahren sicher eine sensationelle Architektur mit Eichenholztragwerk, ist aber inzwischen leider ziemlich abgewohnt. Im Zeitalter von Internet und Email ist eine halbe Stunde einmaliger Gratiszugang pro Tag eine Zumutung. Ein 24-Stundenzugang ist teuer zu bezahlen. Die Zimmer Richtung City haben teilweise schöne Aussicht, aber keinen Balkon. Die anderen schon, aber man hat Blickkontakt zur ca. 10 m entfernten gegenüberliegenden hohen Mauer. Auch am Tag ist Licht einschalten daher zweckmäßig. Eine Großbaustelle stört derzeit das Hafenambiente. Die Lage ist grundsätzlich nicht schlecht, man ist in ca. 5 Minuten am Darling Harbour, die Wifi-Regelung hat die Komfortnote aber sehr negativ beeinflusst.

trés bon hotel

Nous étions sur Sydney pour le salon nautique, nous avons choisi cet hôtel pour son emplacement, nous n'avions qu'une passerelle a traverser pour se rendre sur place. Nous avons passés 3 nuits, le lit confortable et la chambre correct et pas de bruit . Nous y retournerons sans aucun problème.
