Modern Spacious Suite ”
Pros: - modern design. Rooms and lounge were well presented. Nice touches here and there. - great value especially if you are able to get a discount. - complimentary access to lounge was a nice bonus and staff there were fantastic. Cons: - reception is on the other side of the casino. This may be temporary (?) as they are still doing some renovations. - reception staff not accommodating and are ultimately "casino" staff, not "hotel" staff.
Almost perfect as before, except for...”
This is my favourite place if I need to relax. This is the same reason why I keep on coming back at least once a week. I also book this hotel as gift to my friends. The last booking was a gift to a friend and I specifically requested not to mention the rate to my friend as I don't like him to offer me a payment. But the staff at the reception asked me at first on how am I going to pay the amount (she mentioned the amount infront of my friend), which I already pre-paid through Agoda. Just a minor one, but overall she's welcoming staff and friendly. I will be staying soon again.
Nice when you locate it”
The Hotel and room were fine and al I could wish for. Very well appointed and comfortable. Downgraded the staff rating as the hotel is a part of the Star Casino complex and when trying to locate it by following the signs I asked a staff member at the top of the escalator if he new where the hotel was? He sent me down the escalator and outside to ask the doorman to point out where the hotel was as he thought it was located just down the street. Little did he know that the Hotels reception desk was at the bottom of the escalator (25m away) and that he was standing adjacent to the casino level hotel lifts.
Another Surprise ”
This is my 3Rd time to stay in this hotel in about a month. Just like my previous stays, it was another great night, with another Surprise upgrade. This hotel is really spoiling me to the point that I feel like not to stay with any other hotel. They are second to none. Keep it up. Highly recommended.
Amazing....if I can only give more than 5 star”
This is so far the best hotel that I stayed in my life. I can't find the right word how satisfied I was with the service and how I and my friend was treated on our stay. We were pampered. I booked two two rooms and both was upgraded to suites. One of which I found out is one of the luxurious and expensive suite they have. I can't believe it. Great view. The view are magnificent. Spotless and modern. Comfortable bed. Great facilities. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely come back. Great breakfast too. Thank you Astral and the staff for making our last stay memorable. You definitely deserved more than 5 star. I may miss missed something on this review but everything was really great. I will be back soon and for more stay. I will move my loyalty to this hotel from my loyalty to a chain of hotels for 3 years. You are definitely better than them.
Amazing Room to my self & Husband”
Love it! Amazing room and spacious. Except check in is a little problematic with Service clients (aAi). Didn’t get any notification if room was ready. & Waited till 4pm. Maybe staff need to be retrain how to deal with customers in respect manners & not leave without notice. Otherwise will be top knot to remember.
We booked a standard room online, when we got there the room wasn’t available so they upgraded us to a two bedroom suite. Staff member who upgraded us was lovely and helpful. Had a great night, attended a show at the lyric theatre and came out with a tiny win at the casino.
Stayed here for one night, I booked a standard room but got upgraded to a city view suite! Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and three TVs are so extra but it’s one of the best experience for me! And the staffs are friendly , it’s a bit difficult to find where to check in but if you ask a casino staff, they’re happy to guide you. The location is close to Darling Harbour so the view in the night is AMAZING! Since there’s a big balcony, you can take your time to enjoy it. The bed is super comfy, I want one in my own house...Breakfast buffet is delicious, especially the salmon and croissant. This hotel worths every penny you pay for and more! You won’t regret to choose it.
Love the 2 bedroom suite at the residences, perfect for family.”
We were lucky to be upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite at the residences. It was spacious, with a lounge, eating area and 2 bathroom. There was construction work but it was not too bad. If anything the pool is a bit on the small side (compare to the Star Gold Coast). Overall it was very lovely and we would come back.
I was upgraded from a standard room to a suite - and seriously, it would have been good enough for Robbie Williams! I have stayed at 4* and 5* hotels for probably >2,000 nights over my business life, in many different countries, and this suite was by far the best room I have ever stayed in! Ever! Whilst I paid $230 for Night 1 for a standard room, but was upgraded....when I went to extend my stay for another night...unfortunately for me my business travel budget did not extend to $600 for night 2....so had to move elsewhere. This place is mint!
Great Hotel although i got a very weird rash on my leg/thighs”
I always love the Astral Towers. They are always great to stay at and staff are fantastic. Although this time I broke out with a rash on my leg as soon as I sat on the material lounge. It was on my thigh/leg. Very unusual and the rooms weren't as clean as they usually are. It was a bit disappointing but being my birthday I just couldn't be bothered with complaining.
The rooms on the executive level felt old and very enclosed, we had two rooms side by side and they were both the same. I have stayed in the other standard rooms and suites and they’re much better than the executive level rooms.
Very nice stay”
Booked a night away for partner and myself. We got upgraded to a one bedroom suite which was amazing. Only con would have been the brightness of the light switches by the bed when sleeping and the closet light wouldn't turn off when wanting to sleep. Other than that it was very modern and a nice relaxing stay.
Night At The Star - Pyrmont Australia”
Have rated the stay highly based on current upgrades that have improved the rooms to a very high standard. Short term issue is that with their ongoing upgrades the building work noise starts around 7am each day except Sundays and it effects the rooms facing the Pyrmont area (West)
House keeping not up to standard”
My husband and I spent 2 nights and decided to upgrade to a harbour veiw room. The room was nice but when we went to get into bed the sheets weren’t changed from previous guests. There was hair all through the bed. Obviously complained and they changed the sheets when spending nearly 400 a night you would expect the room to be clean. All we were offered was free breakfast. Better hotels in darling harbour.
Very thoughtful staff”
No wonder they say employees are the bloodline of a hotel business. Very thoughtful employees to take initiative to make our stay so wonderful
This hotel is nothing but fantastic. Located at a convenient spot in Darling Harbour. ”
Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staffs are so friendly and ready to help when I asked for directions. Located at a convenient spot on Darling Harbour and near to Sydney Fish Market.

Never ending surprise! ”
