Short break in Sydney
We had a short break in Sydney since 6th Aug 2016 and we stay at Holiday Inn Darling Harbour for 4 nights. This location is just next to China Town and easy to find food and shopping. If you want to goto Darling Harbour it just take you 20 mins walk

Good location if you like lots of chinese food options
Breakfast was almost the same everyday so it sucks when it comes to variety but food taste not too bad though. Gym was small but comes with steam room and small Jacuzzi. Request for toiletries came very fast which was a plus point.

Great locations. Big space. Dated setting
Good location and if ur not in your room all that much probably worth it. But those who like a more upper class modern stay its not for you. Also noisy travelling noises through hall way.
