Very good location, breakfast is totally worth it!

Location, breakfast, comfort
Good, but unfortunately we got a room with no hot water. There was no maintainence at night so Had to go down to use the staff showet, which I guess others would find such arrangement outrageously unacceptable. But we were good people so...

Substandard room

Location, location, location
The location was perfect but the room itself was tiny with a terrible view. We unfortunately got room next to the lift and was noisy. The room itself had a "Motel" feel and is nowhere close to a 4star standard. TheTV reception was very poor and the TV itself was small. The breakfast buffet spread was decent but the queue to get in was quite long even at 10 in the morning. Would I stay in Darling Harbour again - Yes, definitely. Would I stay at the Novotel? - probably not.

Christmas staycation at Novotel Sydney

Very comfortable bed and lots of pillows: friendly and courteous staff
As it was only an overnight staycation on Christmas Eve, I didn't have the time to try out the dining and other facilities. Was happy though that there was room service at 3 am when I got back to the hotel. However, the green curry chicken with jasmine rice left much to be desired. It was just chicken and veggies cooked with some coconut milk. Not sure where the curry was, and they forgot the cutlery!

Great Location

Location, location, location
Booked to stay here when we were in Sydney to see Cold Chisel play at the Entertainment Centre. This is the best location to have access to Darling Harbour and the entertainment precinct. Rooms can be pricey so I suggest you book as far ahead as possible. We booked months ahead for a show on 18 December and got a great deal on a room, rather than those who had to pay $500 plus booking closer to the event. Where possible arrive early for peak times as parking at the hotel can fill up. They do offer you parking at the station next door so is not a huge problem, just a bit further to walk with your bags. Breakfast was good but slow to replace food that had run out but staff were fantastic the whole trip. Highly recommended.

Convenient Location

Nothing Really
This Novotel property is quite old and it is showing its age. It is in the process of upgrading. So my comment might be a bit premature. I was put into Room 301 for the first night and it must have been adjacent to a machinery room. There is a constant low frequency drumming that sounded like it is from a disco. I tried to tolerate it but ear plugs and even noise cancelling earphones did not help. Did not sleep but as it was late, did not want to create any unnecessary problems. Room was changed the following morning but the front office staff was not interested to know the reason for the change. So much for customer service. I think they should not put anybody into that room until they fix the problem. That floor was designated for United and Cathay Pacific airline staff so maybe most of them are just too tired to notice. Breakfast was below average and if you need to pay extra for it, go somewhere else. There are a lot of cafes at the waterfront that serve breakfast. You are better off there. All in all, this is one of the poorer Novotel that I have stayed. At the rate that they charge, they should have better deliverables.
