Service from front desk and restaurant are both fabulous. However, the facilities and decorations are dated in the room. We found that the safe was broken when we checked in the room, and called three times for maintenance. It was not fixed at all during our stay and still broken at the time we checked out.
Excellent location, very clean”
Yes it was older, yes there was loud construction all day right next door & the bathroom tap wouldn’t stop dripping... but the room size was amazing!!! The bed was so comfortable & pillows matched to your liking. The location was excellent & we had a great stay!
Good location and great view”
Everything was just wonderful. The view and location was great. Although, a bit disappointed that I could not access the rooftop terrace and balcony as it was exclusive only to the Club guests. I did not research this thoroughly and only found out about it during my stay.
Good Location ”
I was excited w this hotel as someone said it’s really great in there. Long Check in cos they wanted me to pay the rate but I have already paid it online so it was small hassle. Booked twin beds room but gave us king bed w construction view. I booked and paid the room w the view of harbour and Sydney Opera house but I dint really get I paid for. The pool was somehow disappointing as it’s very small and not ideal for those w kids but it has a great view from the window. Helpful for the luggage.
Near the opera but noisy”
The hotel is 2min walk from circular quay, the opera and Botanic Gardens. However the rooms facing the garden also face a big road and it can be quite noisy, especially at night. I could also hear guests in the room above walking and showering. For that price I would expect the rooms to be better insulated from noise
Good position ”
This hotel is spotless, staff are very help full and the room was very clean. Only thing I find weird is there is this beautiful hotel but there’s no where you can go look at the views of the city or the bridge unless your in the intercontinental club
BEST SERVICE HOTEL NEAR SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE”
Intercontinental Sydney is a good service hotel. Location is great, near Sydney Opera House and Circular Train Station and wharf. Hotel itself indeed is an old building but well maintained inside. Love the building inside and outside. Breakfast is best, room big and clean, bathroom clean. Staff are good, very helpful. Overall a very good hotel and best location ever.-
GREAT HOTEL SERVICE AND VIEW”
We ordered King Room with City View and Lounge Access. Our room view is Museum Sydney, and when at lounge, superb view - Sydney Opera House and Sydney Bridge. Bed is cozy, room is big and clean, room service great, bathroom clean. We are well treated at lounge - nice food and breakfast. Hotel at very good location, not far from Circular Quay train station and wharf, also Sydney Opera House, where we can easily find food and travel information+tour. Concierge very helpful, informing us how to take train from hotel to our niece homestay.
An indulgent night.”
We treated ourselves to a night at the InterContinental over the long weekend. The check-in was one of the friendliest we've experienced and the young lady searched and allocated us a corner room with a fabulous view over the Botanical Gardens. Dinner was the sensational seafood buffet in Cafe Opera and we had a lavish breakfast there the next morning. The room was superbly comfortable. We would definitely love to repeat our wonderful experience at the InterContinental!
Nice view of Circular Quay”
Great location. Very near Botanical Garden and circular quay. Staff are very friendly and nice. I requested for an early check in. Left my luggage at the concierge and went to the Botanical Garden while waiting. The receptionist called me when my room was ready and my luggage were already in the room. They also provided a map and marked the nearby attractions, gave directions how to go there and back to hotel. Except for the building slightly obstructing the view of the Opera House, the room I got has perfect view of harbour bridge and opera house which makes me hard to leave my room.
Beyond amazing !”
All I can say is wow!!! This was an exceptional hotel experience. The concierge and general staff are very prompt and professional, the room was absolutely divine and the food was fantastic. We stayed in the Governor Suite for two nights and by the end of our stay we didn't want to leave. The room was truly luxurious - stunning views of the harbour bridge and opera house, walk in wardrobes, enormous bathroom with spa, second toilet at entrance and so much space in the living area. All the finishing touches made this a stay we will remember!
location, Style, Service”
Wonderful. The most comfortable bed. Not quite so in love with the pillows but seriously above average. Breakfast was great. Room comfort including electric blind control was great. Power points were adequate. Needed more horizontal spaces for the suitcases. Loved the staff. Loved the staff. Loved the staff and the breakfast and the restaurants. I hope to return. No where else will be good enough.
Location, Style, Service”
This was a real gem. The moment I walked in, the staff let me know that I was important and that they wanted my stay in Sydney to be enjoyable. The concierge took the time to quickly show me a map of local interests. Bathroom - clean and spacious, bedroom - clean and spacious, power points - many. It really annoys me when I have to hunt for a power point for the laptop/phone charger/ tablet... Tea/coffee available. Somewhere to put two suitcases. How many times do hotel rooms have a place for one suitcase but two people have two suitcases? I was staying in one of the less expensive rooms but would not know it. I had an American guest with me and she and I had a grand time in this hotel. We dined at the hotel and were very happy. Both of us have travelled extensively in Asia but the Sydney Intercontinental was a match for any of the best hotels in Tokyo, Bangkok or Singapore, etc. Well done management, well done staff. I am looking forward to the next time I stay there.
Intercontinental Standard, busines class”
While the price of the accommodation was at the mid-high range, it matched with the location and professional services to be expected from a Intercontinental Hotel. The standard broadband was fast and the service desk was efficient in helping me with the issues when I could not log in using the "standard" procedure. I also liked that I could choose from a pillow menu, which helped me get a decent night's sleep. It is also within walking distance to some major points - Sydney Opera House, the Rocks and Circular Quay.
Gracious old building with modern conveniences”
The Intercontinental was a great location for a conference. The staff, particularly concierge and waiters, were attentive and most obliging. The buffet breakfast and lunch were good quality with great choices. (Not good for dieters!) Short walk to Circular Quay with all it's attractions.
The hotel is well located and is within 3 mins walk to the Circular quay station and ferry pier. Transportation is very convenience with bus, underground and ferry all within short walking distance. Staff are professional and friendly. Overall hotel facilities is great. The front desk staff provide valuable travel information and made several good suggestions.
Intercontinental Hotel - Sydney”
Hotel is situated in a great location with easy access to amenities and places of interested. Staffs provide great services and the room is spacious. The view i have gotten for my room is amazing. The spread for the daily buffet breakfast is good for a king. Overall, this is a hotel that i would recommend to my fellow colleagues and friends when travelling to Sydney.
Though a little pricey, the location is excellent and the view across the east harbour were great. Buffet breakfast was fantastic.
Excellent location near transport place with great view”
Great view from my room, walking distance to Circular Quay Train Station and Botanical Garden. Be prepare for the upward road around the hotel. Glad to back here again!
1 Star breakfast at the 5-star hotel”
The food selection. for breakfast at the Opera Cafe was something that we had to swallow to relieve hunger rather than to enjoy in this luxury environment. Passages between tables were almost impassable for relatively slim people like me. The TV set at my room was one from the previous century. It is the hotel name only with no substance at all.
