3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed at darling harbour apx for 4 nights in November. Upon arrival we were greeted by courteous and extremely helpful staff. We were expecting some other family to arrive in a few days time and requested that our rooms be as close as possible. Parth, was on duty and looked after us in this regard. The rooms are comfortable, large and and suited our purposes. If You are looking for 5 star luxury well then don’t complain. It is a respectable for the price. Location is expectional, easy walking to darling harbour, Haymarket and Chinatown is literally on your door step. We were always warmly greeted by Parth whenever we came back from our exploring. Would stay here again if and when we come back to Sydney.

It was great staying at APX, nicely maintained/clean/specious rooms, best part is its in the heart of the city. All visiting locations are near by this hotel.Also you will get so many restaurants and delicious food downstairs. Staff is very good, Thanks to Mr Parth Shah who helped me a lot to find things around, he is very cooperative and friendly. Over all it was vary good stay at APX

I am a regular guest and these apartment are very in a very convenient location for my business trips The rooms are always tidy, clean and comfortable The staff are always friendly and look after any special requests These apartments also offer great value for money

I was working in North Sydney for 2 weeks and stayed at the apartments mainly because it was close to a gym I am a member of. I really liked the location, it took me about 40 minutes to walk to work, was close to Darling Harbour and lots of choices for places to eat. The first room I got was a bit disappointing, however when I talked to the front desk, they were able to find me another room which was a lot better. Parth in particular was really helpful with my requests. All up, I was happy with my stay. The only thing that was not quite up to standard was the room servicing. There were a few days that they skipped the room, not such a bad thing but they also didn't keep the coffee or other nick nacks stocked all that well. These were minor, as the location and helpful staff made it an enjoyable stay.

Parth on reception was very friendly & helpful. It is a very handy location, directly opposite some very nice food shops and very close to Darling harbour, China Town and Central station. The room is a very good size and is well kept. The bed is a bit firm but is ok. I will return again, good value for money!

We've just arrived at APX and after a brief walk through the centre of Chinatown, surrounded by delicious aromas, we arrived and were warmly welcomed by Porth at the front desk. We received great advice on which eateries to try first and also where to find great ice-cream 😊 Our room is very spacious and immaculate and our large balcony looks right over Dixon street. So glad we chose this place... let the fun begin!

Booked an apartment close to China town in Sydney, loads of places to eat and try new food. Apartment was fine although does not look as big as photos on website. Full service with cooking laundry and free wifi and movies overall good experience. If leaving next day for later flight they are happy to store luggage for free. Not far from central station and paddys markets.

Undoubtedly a budget hotel, but comfortable, clean, well appointed and in a fabulous location where you can expect to pay more than double their price. This is our 2nd stay and we will come again as the location for Darling Harbour, CBD, China Town and trains to the airport can't be beaten.

The beds are very hard and uncomfortable, we asked for a queen and had two singles pushed together, that were different heights. The room smelt horrible and had wet carpet in the bedroom area, I think the smell was mould. The air conditioner also smelt horrible when turned on. Noise from the street made sleeping difficult.Value for money is very poor, and I would not recommend these apartments to anyone. Location is all this place has to offer to guests.

Location and room size was excellent,Street noise was a problem. Cleanliness and electrical safety was substandard. Slippery tiles in the disabled bathroom made it inappropriate for those with mobility issues.Bed very uncomfortable
