Great location and very good price.

Great location and very good price. Hotel was clean and comfortable. It was a bit noisy due to the heavy traffic, but that was the trade off for having views of the fabulous harbour.

So convenient.

I had rung before hand and asked for a room with a balcony on a high level (quieter and more light). We had paid extra for a harbour view. (worth every cent) Level 11 room 1121. When I first walked into the unit I was very displeased. No balcony and the view was tainted by a huge building that was half demolished. The freeway was right THERE, almost under us. I was ready to go down and ask for a room change. But But... we then went for a walk. We found ourselves in the midst of loads of interesting sights and activity. People and cafes everywhere. The Pyrmont historical walk bridge lead us to the city - we'd only been walking for 15 minutes. We walked around the buzzy Darling Harbour and enjoyed the music and activity. As evening came we enjoyed the view from lounge window of all the amazing lights of Darling Harbour and the city. The Freeway added rather than detracted from the scene. At 9pm we were treated to fireworks (every Saturday evening on Darling Harbour).The rest of the week we walked to (found an easy access to D Harb through carpark) or caught the very convenient public transport - Light rail outside the building, bus to city at Darl Har Maritime Museum, Free shuttle up and down George St the city, Ferry from Darling Harbour. Each day we used the well equipped gym or swam in the 25m lap pool. Also watched with interest the further demolition of the building. Hotel staff very helpful and pleasant. Lift a bit slow but got used to it. Noisy as freeway close. Fine when windows closed. Windows only open slightly but aircon works well. Room serviced daily. Washing facilities and Kitchen make it convenient and keeps down costs.Supermarkets close. The proximity to the city and all the cafes and attractions make this a perfect place to stay. We stayed for a week and will go again.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

1. Go to level 2, out of lift, turn left and follow walkway to end of building, turn right onto carpark walkway. Follow signs which will take you to Harbourside shopping and cafe centre and Darling Harbour. Left down to level 4 takes you to Light rail station. 2. IGA supermarket opposite Novotel is the best for all groceries.

We had a studio which was perfect

We had a studio which was perfect for a couple of days staying within a centre of town. Studio has everything what needed - an owen, a micro,a dish-washer, even a washing machine and dryer which was great to use after couple of weeks spent in Outback. The building looks great, fresh, clean and quiet. Having a pool downstairs available until midnight is so nice. The place is just a 2 minutes from Darling Harbor which is very convenient if one wants to go for a beer in the evening. I would recommend asking for higher floor and rooms with windows facing Harbor because the others are facing a parking spot and a big wall which isn't very nice view. Otherwise - highly recommended, the best place to stay in Australia so far.

Location was very handy to where I was working. Staff was friendly & helpful. The room was good although there was a plumbing problem around the handbasin which had been overlooked for some time by the look of it.
