    location

    Not all floors are refurbished. My room was on the second floor which is very run down and smelly.

    Very good

    The staff was very friendly and the room very clean.

    The concierge forgot some of my things when I came back to pick up my luggage. I had ust gotten married and didn't realise until later I was missing a bag... The price for the room was ok considering the location but if you're on any of the first 4 floors, you don't get any view and might even be able to look into the building next door :-/

    Fabulous

    Great location, handy to transport options, easy access to tourist attractions, shopping, cafes. Good facilities in the hotel, staff very helpful and friendly. Food options for in-room dining were good, plus two restaurants in the hotel. The room was comfortable, quite spacious, pillow menu to choose from.

    Bathroom a little tired and the step into the shower/bath would be challenging for older or less able people.

    we paid a little more to have breakfast the next morning. and we were not disappointed. My caramel latte was perfect. eggs cooked to my preference. Choice of hard or soft pillow was also a bonus. we love staying here for short overnight visits. thankyou so much

    Very good

    The family room type is suitable for family with 2 young children. The manager was very nice during our arrival.

    The staff receptionist was not friendly and like doesn't care at all when we checked out, not even a smile. Just say, "oh..you can go". Not even look at guest.

    Way over priced for size of room. Calling it Darling Harbour is wrong Hay Maket or China Town more realistic.
