APX Darling Harbour

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Suite was beautiful. Clean, large and well appointed. Great location. Really friendly staff, easy check in. Bed was divine, and linen fresh. Great value. Easily accommodated our family of 4. Will definitely be back.

Good value stay in the city. I think these are the old OAKS apartments. Great access to China Town, Darling Harbour and heart of city. Rooms are much larger than I expected for a great price. We liked how we had a kitchenette and laundry too. Clean, reliable and proactive staff. You can tell the quality of cleanliness and service is important to management - from the checked quality assurance door tag, to the in-room phone call from reception asking if everything is ok, to check out. A chocolate treat on the bed was a nice touch. We checked out on Saturday and saw the cleaning staff were putting large Easter bunny chocolates for the Saturday night guests for Easter Sunday - very nice and thoughtful! We loved how we could store our bags while we explored the city. Everyone was really hospitable and friendly. In fact. I've already recommended APX to friends and family.

We stayed overnight at APX and were very happy that we could have our room earlier than 2pm as we were very tired. The room we were given was great, very clean and spacious. Loved the fact that it had a washing machine & dryer too. The traffic was a little noisy, but the building is in the middle of China Town so a little noise was expected. Had a higher floor as we requested, which probably helped the noise from being too bad. Air con worked very well and the bathroom had beautiful amenities. Great sized kitchen as well. We would definitely stay there again if we could get a similar room.

Don't stay here if you actually expect to be able to sleep. The bed is like a slab of concrete. The room was dingy and not clean with no supplies. How can this continue to be offered as accommodation. Booking sites like should not list this venue. If that's what they consider reasonable then I won't be using either. Disgusting. Totally ripped off. And completely spoilt the weekend.

Well located for exploring Sydney. Close to all public transport and Darling Harbour area is only a few minutes walk away Clean and modern rooms, well equipped, Would use again and happy to recommend. Staff friendly and helpful, was able to leave luggage in secure place on arrival as I arrived quite a bit before check in time.

The APX apartments at Darling Harbour are superbly located - right in Chinatown and just a short walk to Darling Harbour. Staff were friendly and helpful with on-site parking which was available and accessed with no issues. The room was clean and serviced well - they even washed our coffee cups! The room was larger than expected with plenty of room for the complementary baby cot. Will be staying again.

To start with, the reception staff were incredibly helpful in a situation they had no responsibility for, entirely my issue. Room was on an internal courtyard and was very quiet with great blockout curtains for a sleep in. Everything was either new or well maintained and cleaned. Initially I thought the bed was a bit worn, but I slept like a baby. Being in the middle of China Town and only a short walk to Thai Town and everything else in the city is awesome. I get that some people find it hard to find, but there is a big sign over the door now. Well priced in a great location with helpful staff.

Clean service apartments with kitchenette and community laundry facility. Had stayed there for 15 days on a business trip. All the major attractions and business centers are close by. China Town, Darling Harbour and Paddy's market are just small walk distance. CBD is couple of blocks away. Easy train connectivity to sub-urbs from Townhall station. Rooms are clean with daily housekeeping facility. Stayed in Executive studio apartment which was spacious. Couple of apartments on selected floors have balcony.

The room at the APX was great as was the location. Right on the doorstep of so many great things in Darling harbour and China Town. The staff member I saw was far from friendly boarding on rude. The pre online check in was a waste of time as well as I still had do 90% it again despite the staff member saying he could see that I had done it. The showers are terrible as well.

Trying to find this hotel was a nightmare. I called the hotel to ask for directions and the staff member was unable to tell me the street name I needed to turn in from. Ended up completely lost and staff were unable to assist in any way. My trip was basically ruined by the ineptitude of the staff. Room was adequate but rundown. Did not enjoy my stay and won't be back.
