enjoy the stay

the location was great for our needs and all staff were polite and efficient, if I had one not so positive comment would be the bed was not to my liking.

Very outdated decor. More akin to backpacker stay

Food and dining were ok. But basic compared to other Novotel hotels
It was central to my needs in the that part of Sydney. But won't stay there again. Corridors and rooms very musky in smell. Decor very outdated

Sydney Stay Oct 2015

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!

Location, Ambience, Cleanliness
Very good, I would recommend to everyone who likes the downtown area, it is within walking distance to the Main Central Station which is convenient, lots of good restaurants around. You never feel hungry.......

not really a 4 star

small tv and basic room
Meant to have 12pm checkout but had room cleaned before 11am and our bag packed by housekeeping and put in storage. Realized when we came back to refresh. Disappointing!

over rated and over priced room

The room dint live up to the rating provided. It looked pretty old and carpet had stain/burnt marks, not the right value for money
