Ideal location!!”

Ideal location. Short and easy stroll to Darling Harbour, Paddys Market , Chinatown and The Powerhouse Museum also The Capitol Theatre. The Novotel has a really nice Foyer to relax in and the bed was exceptionally comfortable.

Citigate Sydney Central Hotel”

Centrally located to all amenities.

Good location. Very convenient and within walking distance to Chinatown, Haymarket, Darling Harbour, Shopping strips. Save you from looking for expensive parking in CBD. 2 Queen beds option good for extra children at no extra cost. Room is very clean and spacious. Staff are friendly. Do not need to worry of no car park space after late night outings. Plenty of car parks that unable multi entries for 24 Hr period. Even after checking out. Will definitely choose to come back to Citigate Sydney Central again.

The view, the location and the food

Overall, my stay was a good one....despite being one at short notice, which i will know for next time to book a 'lil further in advance (leave it til the last minute- expect to pay a good deal more) As far the room goes it was good...any higher it'd be on the roof... as it was the room was on the top floor and it was all ready to go which is nice and the view was pretty good! The only bit that was a pain was the phone... when dialling r/service the button (well a few of them) didn't work... and had to call thru reception to get anything.... Fieldhouse for breakfast was a good idea...plenty on the buffet and good value as well! As far as the overall experience goes it was pretty good... book far enough in advance you wont pay the earth... book and pay thru Agoda you wont have to worry about paying at all once u get there! Location is great... with a car-less walkway to central and darling harbour just down the street as well as chinatown... it's in a good spot!

I was staying here alone after a medical procedure. On arrival, the ladies on reception couldn't have been more accommodating and made me feel instantly at ease. They even suggested that I could change room if I needed a disabled access bath which was a nice touch. The porter was helpful and carried my bag up to the room. The actual room was very quiet as requested. It was big and welcoming.A couple of things let it down though, the bedside lamp was ripped and it could have done with a touch of paint in some areas but generally a very comfy bed and lovely room aside from this. I went for breakfast around 9.30 am the following morning and it was mayhem. In all fairness, some residents were storming through and pushing in front of me to get through to the buffet blatantly Ignoring a sign to wait to be seated which was no fault of the staff! There were dirty tables and it was chaos, very overcrowded. There was a big wait for coffee and no order so I had to sit at a dirty table. The actual breakfast was very nice however. I didn't stay long as it was rather stressful! I since found out from the porter that many airline staff had missed their flights from Sydney due to weather cancellations so I think it was simply a case of too many people in the breakfast area at once and this put pressure on the waiters/waitresses who were trying to do a good job. My partner requested that reception check on me when he left the evening before and they called me straight away to remind me that they were there 24/7 should I need anything which I truly appreciated. All in all, I think this hotel is in a great location, good size rooms, very helpful staff and I would definitely recommend and would stay again. Many thanks, Lesley.
