Recent guest reviews

Stayed here jan 2018 by accident. Wanted separate room for our 2 teenagers. We got upgrade and for the first time received interconnecting rooms. Bed comfortable. Bathroons basic but clean. Self contained so had breaky in room. Store close by. Across road from china town. Close to darling harbour.stayed 4 nights before cruise so needed to do floor down. $3 for each load. Great machine and large dryer. Washing for 4 cost $12. Yes there was the odd smell in halls and lift of cookin but not in our room though. Rooms cost $205 night each.

Location is good near Darling Harbour walkable distance but facility is old, need urgent renovation and rooms though specious as bit stuffy a moist, also easy access to China town and Metro station about 10 min Walk, were bit disappointed with the facilities below are expectations

Its an average hotel with basic rooms. Comfortable well maintained but a bit hard to get to if you drive and right next door to China Town. An easy walk across to the Darling Harbour precinct or up to the centre of the city around Town Hall. Certainly cheaper than the Big Chains but you get what you pay for and it ticked all the boxes for a good business hotel.

We stayed at the Seasons Darling Harbour 8/9-1-18 ... it was a gift so that we could go to dinner at Kobe Jones on Darling Harbour. 1. The lights in the bedroom didn't work 2. The TV was pixelated to the point we couldn't watch it 3. The coffee was disgusting 4. The long-life milk was off 5. The bathroom was poor at best 6. The shower curtain (who puts these in "deluxe suites"?) was minging 7. The shower over the bath wouldn't fit a 5 year old 8. The "towels" were little more than face washers and hard and worn 9. The room was not serviced .. when we asked for it to be serviced, housekeeping changed the towels but did not clean the bathroom, straightened the sheets on the bed, but did not change them and did not put clean cups in the kitchen. We were IN THE ROOM while he did all this. 10. There was no exhaust fan in the bathroom and no window ... it was literally a tiled sauna. 11. The lounge was filthy with stains 12. The mattress needed replacing, sagged into the middle and smelled odd. 13. The whole place just needs a serious upgrade. We would NEVER stay here again.

The room had a strong unpleasant smell and the walls were patched and unpainted. the lobby was unwelcoming and there were mostly empty shops in the basement area adjoining the lobby. Grossly overpriced and sub standard accommodation - we lasted all of 30 minutes. Don't be fooled if you are offered their quality "alterative" up the road as it not much better.

Positives Good central location near Darling Harbour & Chinese precinct. Walking distance to most central places. Comfortable 1 bedroom studio unit was good size & layout. Discounted price - good value. Negatives In need of some minor cosmetic repairs - but ok. Bed needs replacing - was partially collapsed in the middle like a hammock. I slept ok but wife said it was uncomfortable for her.

Great location and that’s about where the good stuff ends. Nice enough if dated room. Bad food/cooking smell throughout hotel made it very unpleasant. Air conditioning absolutely useless even on highest setting. You wouldn’t even know it was on. Can get very noisy at night as right in Chinatown. First and last stay for me. Oh and it’s not cheap.😩👎

Spent a birthday week-end at Seasons Darling Harbour. Around $460 for two nights was very cheap for this location. On arrival, we thought we had made a mistake as it was closer the Haymarket and China Town than we anticipated. However, this turned out to be a bonus. It is right in the middle of a great tourist triangle.....Chinatown, Darling Harbour and Town Hall Shopping area. Just a couple of minutes walk in any direction takes you to 3 of Sydney's popular tourist desitnations. The room was very quiet, on a high floor. Modern and clean, with a large fridge for a hotel room, an added bonus. Plus crockery, and cutlery and a stove top. The roof top pool was a hidden gem..... From this 18th Floor vista you can enjoy a very clean pool, with the most amazing view across to Darling Harbour with Darling Harbour's Chinese Gardens right in front of you. Glimpses of the harbour and its glistening water added to the reason we would rate this hotel so highly. The hotel probably should promote it's roof-top pool and scenic lookout from this level.

I'd agree with many of the reviewers that this hotel (or apartment suites) is very good in many respects, ideally located for Chinatown and nearby restaurants, a simple 15 walk to Darling Harbour, a number of good pubs nearby, a Coles Express and Woolies within walking distance which means that the kitchenette in the room would offer an inexpensive dining alternative for families or those on a tight budget. Staff are friendly and efficient, they sorted me out with a room while I was in the taxi coming from the airport (after holiday inn lost my original booking). The room was clean, comfortable and well laid out with lots of room. Not outrageously expensive, in fact considerably cheaper than almost anything else in this area. For an extended stay it would be a great option BUT... it was so noisy. Internally it was quiet, I heard nothing from other rooms and I had to check the air conditioning was on it was so quiet (though nevertheless, quite effective) but, being right above Chinatown; on my first night, Sunday, I had bad western music drifting up from the street downstairs and when that finally finished at 11:30pm I then listened to people, not always drunk but seemingly, always noisy, walking along the street outside my window (albeit 8 FLOORS DOWN!!!) keeping me awake until I finally fell asleep around 2am. The next night, Monday was even worse with noise continuing late and then several groups stumbling home at 3 and 4 am. I didn't find it to be "worn out" as one previous reviewer did but it does need double glazing. In almost any other city in the world that would be automatic.

The staff were lovely. The room was great, with cooking facilities and a fridge. It's just outside Chinatown, which is an experience in itself! A bit of a walk to the Opera house, tho' we discovered as we were leaving that the tram station is in Chinatown! You'll find lots of stores with food and smoothies for breakfast. We had no problem with noise in the hotel, even tho' it was full for our 3-night stay. ENJOY!
