This may not be one of the best Accor or Novatel hotels, but its location makes up for a lot. It's one block from Chinatown with hundreds of restaurants and a 10 minute walk through a park past the Chinese garden to Darling Harbour. The rooms are large with king beds and the bathroom is substantial. The breakfast is ok...

We have stayed here in the past and had a great experience so we booked 2 nights this time. We were very disappointed . The room was so small my Wife was continually knocking her legs on the edge of the bed . The TV was on the Cabinet to the left of the beds so we had watch TV...

I found the service to be terrible, the rooms outdated I would class this as a 3 star .The restaurant looks dirty chairs with rips and muck on them. We had a table up stairs and we had to walk down two flights of stairs to get our drinks, to get a menu, no table service at all. I asked...

The hotel was really nice! Location AMAZING, good wifi, very nice breakfast and big rooms! We went for our honeymoon and they sent us a complimentary desert! How nice of them! We think they should just upgrade their bathrooms a bit and maybe add a better a/c system! However we would DEFINITELY go back!

After a previous visit I was expecting a similar good experience. I was wrong. The check in process was protracted and for some reason, standing on the Accor Silver queue did not attract the priority it was supposed to. The lack of car parking meant that congestion occurred at the front entrance, with several vehicles being 'parked-in' and unable to...

We stayed Christmas night as it was close to Darling Harbour where we had Christmas Lunch. It was very comfortable for our purpose, our room had a nice view over the Chinese Gardens. It was a short walk to all the activities in Darling Harbour. Breakfast the next morning had so many choices, even the teas. They had a range...

I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past when I’m at meetings in the Darling Harbour region. This stay was with my small grandchildren, which I booked two rooms. Upon check in I stood at the Accor priority check in where after 10 mins no one served me so I stood in line with the other customers....

Room, linen, bathroom and amenities make the room clean and comfortable. My only gripe is the lighting in the room. The table lamp and standing lamp is covered by rattan-like shades and there's hardly any light in the room. Would have preferred the option of having a light on the room ceiling as well. The bathroom, on the other hand,...
