Couldn't be better

Everything was perfect. Every possible amenity in our apartment, even down to washing powder and tea- towels, replaced every day. Wonderful view over Darling Harbour. Really central. Quiet and perfectly clean. Staff always friendly, courteous and helpful, but unobtrusive. We were delighted. The only downside was waiting for the lift, which could take quite a while at busy times.

Immigrant detention centre

My boyfriend and I walked in the second entrance and literally burst into laughter. The hotel is literally low quality apartments that have indoor patios making it look like an immigrant detention centre or the projects. Our view from our studio room was of a painted brick wall, the bed was terrible, and everything else was terrible quality. IT IS NOT A FOUR STAR. The only good thing was the location, and price at 160 per night. We were locked in the staircase for 20 minutes with what appeared to be the entire cast from Rent, as the fire doors are locked on the inside. Also, staff were wearing face masks- retrospectively I should have asked of they were complimentary. My boyfriend proceeded to talk like we were in the ghetto for the remainder of our trip, needless to say I would never stay there again. You get what you pay for in Pyrmont Harbour I suppose.

Great Stay

The room came with enough blankets and pillows for a giant pillow fort in the living room!

Inexpensive hotel near Darling Harbour

The hotel has seen better days. It was a wool warehouse from 1896until a fire in 1935. It was refurbished after the fire and converted into a hotel in 1955. The interior resembles a clean prison block but it is not unpleasant, just a quirky appearance. The pool and spa area is good. It is about ten minutes walk from Darling Harbour and very good value. No ramps for disabled people.

Not worth it

Where do I start? -The staff were rude -The rooms looked they were not maintained. -There were holes in the drywall. -Bad signage so the place was hard to find. -Parking was terrible. - It smelled bad Not only that but it cost a fortune!

Very unclean standards dropped dramatica

The standards have dropped to an all time low here. Stayed over 10 years, yet hygiene and cleaning is awful, kitchens and carpets filthy in some apnts. The new Manager is all spin and no substance, such a change from the high standards before he arrived. Money not standards, contracted out minimum wage, over pushed cleaners, with communal areas as well as kitchens and bedrooms filthy if you look behind anything. NOT recommend this place it is truly filthy, and has dipped to stay at this level for the last 2 years. Many more apartments, choose anywhere BUT this if you have any standards of hygiene or cleanliness.

Declined in standards...

Stayed over 10 years for at least 2 months a year, but cleaning standards, and quality /repair of furnishings in apartments poor. Jaded, tired place, noisy inside the main atrium where all bedrooms side to. Certainly not worth the cost, plenty of other places higher standards for less. No higher than 2* and avoid unless you are desperate|!
