Got a special low rate from agoda and we were treated as if paying the full price. The staff, especially Roberto and Eddie, were very attentive to our needs. Location is perfect, just within darling harbour.

GREAT PLACE”
What can I say...great place to stay with really helpful staff. I wished I could stay here for my entire trip but for not locals the price is slightly on a higher side....but if I can afford it I would most likely stay here for my entire stay. Location is fantastic as you can go around the tourist spots rather easily from here....besides the casino is just nearby. Food is also fantastic nearby and the breakfast was great...

Very good”
Within walking distance to Wildlife Zoo, Sealife Aquarium, Cockle Bay wharf where you are take a ferry to Taronga Zoo, Darling Harbour children's playground and Chinese garden of friendship. About 30mins walk to Broadway Shopping Centre where you can find Target, Kmart and Coles. Lots of eateries at Harbourside Shopping Centre. Hotel gave us complimentary drinks when we checked in late at night and they upgraded our rooms with fantastic view of the harbour. Awesome view of the fireworks on Saturday night from hotel room. Room is clean and housekeeping is efficient. No toothbrushes and bedroom slippers though. Biggest is queen sized bed which is not comfortable for 2 adults and 1 child.

Great location for parents with babies”
First room smelt very badly of smoke and carpet very dirty and I suffer from asthma (9th floor) but was moved to a different room on the 5th floor(was going to be the 8th floor but staff member informed us that the construction work may wake our baby so thankful for that). This room was very clean and smelt clean. Upon check out after speaking to another staff member he waved our parking cost which was very much appreciated. For those with babies that want to be in amongst it all with everything just a short walk away I recommend this hotel

Beds are consider need replacement as a bit too soft , size of rooms are perfect and viewed darling harbour. location is perfect because it has pedestarian bridge to shopping mall harbourside , hardrock cafe Hurricane ribs, pancakes on the rocks which are all famous restaurant are inside the mall. star city casino only 5 minute walk from the mall. Light rail station ( pyrmont station ) also accross the mall which can bring you to central station or chinatown. parking fee $45 /night is should be a complimentary for hotel guest especially who stay more that 2 days

Location, service and price
Sydney is a tough city to find quality accommodation at an affordable rate. Novotel is great value and in such an excellent location. Out of the business area but only a pleasant walk away. There are many places to eat around the hotel and some nice sightseeing if you are there for tourist reasons. I was there on business and it suited me perfectly! The staff were very friendly and professional. Most Accor Hotels deliver what they promise. This Accor Hotel is no exception! Great stay!

Decent hotel on Darling Harbour”
Clean, professional and convenient
As my business trip revolved around Darling Harbour, the Novotel was convenient for me. On the positives - the hotel is clean, the staff are very professional and the rooms are comfortable and well-featured. There are some areas that could be improved however - like the walkway to the harbour. I assume that most visitors will want to get down through the Harbourside shopping mall, to the waterfront. I feel that the walk across the car park and down the ramp is a little daggy... perhaps it could be made to feel more cared for. Also the shower was a let-down. The water pressure is low and the hot water is limited. Overall, I felt that the Novotel did the job well, but there was nothing to be excited about.

Just across Harbourside mall, really suit our needs. The view is awesome, straight to Darling Harbour. They didn't have connecting room for our first day, but travelled with our kids, connecting is a must. The unfriendly front office staff would give us in nx two days (we stayed for 9 nights). Hence she offered harbour view with additional 20$ per room. No, thanks. The next day, i met the staff that said the connecting room was available, so we moved out, and he even gave us Harbour-view room for the rest 8 nights, for free!! (Thx Matthew!! )

Great location and view.”
Clean, location, view.
The hotel is at the prime location of Darling Harbour. Great views from the room window, the overall ambience was good, staff good presented. The value - well - it is in prime location of Australia's best city, but the internet should be free for the price (common, it is free as standard in almost anywhere in the world now), the buffet breakfast was okay but nothing to write home about and seemed busy and disorganised. The provisions in the bathroom were rather 3 star.
