a shame about the location and size of the room.

The staff were v pleasant, the breakfast adequate, and the styling Okay.
We stayed in the second smallest room, which was too small for a couple, and only had one night-lamp for reading... which didn't work so well for 2 of us. The rooms are v "designed" - taste is personal. The location wasn't ideal, as it is a walk from Sydney central, but this is our personal comment, others may find it works well for them, depending on their reason for being in Sydney. The Darling Harbour area is a little tired, and not for everyone and the hotel feels a little disconnected from the area at the moment, as there is a construction site to the South of the hotel. The staff were great, and the foyer breakfast/bar area worked well.

Week stay

Breakfast, happy hour, location
We very much enjoyed our stay at the 1888 Darling Harbour, the breakfast was very good rooms clean and comfortable and staff friendly. The free happy hour was a great touch and the staff very attentive on toping up your drink. The mini bar which is also included and topped up daily was great as well although the snacks it mentions are not refilled which seemed a little cheeky on a 6 night stay. The front staff arranged our cab to the airport for us which was also very helpful. Over all a great place to stay and in a great location.

Fantastic hotel

Staff, rooms and social aspect
Checked in late in the day but extremely friendly and helpful staff. Room was excellent, very clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Great idea for a free bar between 5 & 7 as a guest social time especially for solo travelers. Also free mini bar a very nice touch.
