Excellent Location”

There is no argument that Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour is in a really good location. For those who travel with rented vehicles like me, the parking is $50 a day. Considering that parking is crazily priced everywhere in central Sydney, the price is reasonable. The Australian Maritime Museum is just 5 mins walk away, followed by the zoo, aquarium and Mdm Tussaud's. I walked to Sydney Tower eye in about 10 mins. Sydney fish market is not too far away too. There's a shopping centre just next to the hotel. Just cross a small bridge. Very comfortable 5 mins walk. I tried to get a family room which was 2 double beds but it was still very small. I felt a little claustrophobic in the room. If you do have 4 people in the room, with the luggage and all there's hardly space to walk. If you are a larger family than 4 and thinking of secretly squeezing more people in, I'd strongly advise against it. The amenities were ok. Respectable. Nothing to shout about. Shampoo and all were ok, but no toothbrush provided. Bring your own. Fridge is filled so there's limited space for your own drinks. There is a small minimart just across the street that sells basic necessities which opens until late into the evening. For the price paid, consider the location and the cleanliness of the room. The comfort of the bedsheets, bed and all. The decoration is minimal and it looked 3 star rather than 4. I would recommend staying at the hotel if you are cutting transport costs. Hotel staff are also very friendly. I paid for the buffet breakfast because kids can eat free. I'd say the hotel is family-friendly.

Spectacular views and very helpful staff.”

Central Sydney at peak season means it is very challenging to get great accommodation and service at a reasonable cost. In these circumstances the Novotel performed exceptionally well. The views over Darling Harbour would be very difficult to beat and the location offers the very best opportunity to explore Darling Harbour. The rooms are perhaps a little past their best and the facilities are definitely 4 rather than 5 star - but the value for money is very good for central Sydney. The general manager went out of his way to help with a couple of extra touches which made our stay very special - such commitment to customer service is rare and is an attitude which was shown by all the staff we met. Very highly recommended.

Happy stay”

We loved staying at Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour Hotel. Excellent hotel inside out. The view of Darling Harbour was amazing if you booked room with the sea view. The only problem is lack of free Car Park and it costs $48 per day. Still highly recommended!
