Have realistic expectation

I brought my wife and kids to this hotel for New Year’s Eve. We were finishing up three weeks in New Zealand and figured we’d jump over to Sydney for a few days before heading back to the USA. I spend about 75 nights a year in hotels so I’ve seem the range of what’s out there around the world. Here’s what I would want to know about the place: Room: Spacious but not “modern” in any way. Large balcony but no view of note (just an alley with a lot of Asian restaurants. Air conditioning was functioning but lacked adequate power to cool the room adequately. Despite it being NYE, the room was still very quiet. In fact, I called it surprisingly quiet. Beds: Main bed was comfortable enough but certainly not one of those mattresses you would ever buy for your own home. We also had to utilize the sofa bed for the kids. It was thin and no adult would EVER find it comfortable in the least. Bathroom: Clean but otherwise not notable. Shower only; no bath. Linens: Average. Not enough pillows (only two on the bed) Amenities: None to speak of. No Wi-Fi (so make sure you have a device that takes an Ethernet cable if you want to use the internet). Our TV was not functioning but that was not a huge problem because we didn’t spend much time in the room. The hotel is not staffed from 10pm to 8am so make sure you resolve any issues prior to 10pm. Location: The edge of Darling Harbor; not in the center of the action and that could be considered a good thing or not, depending upon your taste. It’s located on a street with nothing but small, inexpensive Asia walk-up restaurants. Price/Value: New Years Eve in Sydney is very expensive and we paid way too much for this room (about $700 per night on this site). Thus my review is based on my experience at that price. It is absolutely not worth even half of that amount. I would have left immediately if there were other options. That said, if you can pick this room up for $200 per night or less you will probably be happy with your choice. Additionally, expect to be charged for every possible service you might request. We even had to pay $45 to use the sofa bed (“for the sheets” we were told). So, come prepared to spend more than the published room rate.

worst reception and doggy accomodation.

worst reception and accomodation. paid full in advance and have requested extra bed, then checked in reception advised us to pay $40 per night for an extra bed and called this a standard pratice. when arrived at the room, we found queen bed has become 2 x single bed after we paid $40 for the extra bed. spent 1 hours negotiate with apx and finalized had the extra bed. enough is enough, we will never go to again.

not happy at all

when I checked in, the reception gave me the wrong key that room has been occupied by someone already, I was very embarrassed, then they put me on another floor (Floor 6th)but rubbish n boxes everywhere in the corridor, like a ware house. lucky there's no fire on that night.

Great Location

Sensationally located in the heart of Chinatown with great eateries and entertainment within close walking distance. The staff are very helpful and the overall complex is clean and well presented. This represents great value - decent sized rooms although no views.

a little confusing

This was an average hotel and could use a bit more lighting in the room, but set perfectly in the Darling Harbour/CBD area. Worth the value I got online. The most difficult part was just finding it. It recently went through a name change from Quest to APX but the staff didn't let me know. I called the staff for directions but they couldn't provide me with any landmarks.Ended up asking a local policeman who pointed it out to me. It was smack in the middle of a restaurant strip for all kinds of Asian foods and bustling with patrons. Darling Harbour just 2 minute walk and CBD trains etc all nearby.

The staff were friendly and very professional and helpful. The hotel itself couldn't be much closer to Darling Harbour - the convenience of that can't be overstated. We will be back!!!

I will be back

The neighborhood is fantastic! Asian food abound. It was unfortunate that it rained the night and the next morning that we were there but we still had a marvelous time walking around. A lot of people everywhere, felt very safe. To me, it's a real local place compared to Circular Quay where we stayed last year for double the price. And we found breakfast early Sunday morning at Darling Harbour! Excellent location, room could be slightly bigger although we'd probably wouldn't notice if it wasn't raining too hard to get out.

If you like Asian food and be surrounded by young people on a Saturday night, this is the place.

Good for Business Travellers

The location of the hotel close to the city and so many choices of restaurants make it great for business travellers. The 4 movie channels showing recently to video films free is a hidden bonus that I only found on my second night - it's not mentioned in the hotel's information booklet. What lets the hotel down for business travellers is the quality of the bed and pillows. I also have an increasing problem with hotels that have a sign about conserving water etc and re-using towels but then continue to change them even when you hang them up neatly as requested. Here even the soap I used was thrown out every day.
