      Huge clean Apartment”

      Balcony. So much space. Free Laundry facilities. Very secure building. Great location.
      Wireless available but for a fee.

      After extending our stay in Sydney the Quest Apartments were three times the size and at least half the price of the Boutique Hotel that we had stayed in the previous week. We are backpacking so an apartment is a great way to save money on dining out. Even if you are on holiday these apartments are great for a bit of freedom, you have kitchen facilities so can cook as little or as much as you like. The apartment itself is huge with plenty of space and the balcony is a nice little extra. It was very clean and tidy and well maintained with housekeeping everyday like a hotel. The location is ideal for exploring Sydney with Darling Harbour and Chinatown on your doorstep. The laundry facilities are free too which is brilliant. I would recommend these apartments for a variety of travellers to Sydney.

      Great Room Great Location”

      The APX Darling Harbour is in a great location, literally 5 minutes walk from Darling Harbour. The room was large, the bed large and even a large bathroom. My only issue was room service. The sign on the door said it was daily but after 3 nights we still had not had room service. We don't expect daily clean these days but we eventually ran out of items like soap, dishwashing liquid and coffee. When we saw the cleaners on the 4th day they did a full room clean quickly. I would saty there again dspite this issue.

      very convenient hotel”

      The studio is big with modern furniture and has a balcony
      no view in lower floor

      The hotel is very convenient, located near Darling Harbour and the Market. The studio we had was well equiped: clean with modern furniture, spacious with a king bed, cooking facilities and had a large balcony. This is an ideal hotel if you don't want to pay to much for a nice room in the centre of Sydney. Darling Harbour is just 3 minutes away as well as Chinatown and the Market. So just perfect to discover Sydney!

      Friendly staff and great location”

      Location Location Location

      Have just spent 2 nights at the Quest on Dixon, Darling Harbour and loved it. Our Executive Studio was spacious with large screen tv and kitchenette as well as a balcony. The ideal location between Darling Harbour and Chinatown allowed us to walk to all attractions and restaurants, as well as being a short walk to Paddy’s Market and the light rail - perfect for going to the Sydney Fish Market.
