    Fabulous

    The location is key, a little noisy (right beside expressway), but worth it to have kitchen amenities and cook our own meals.

    For the size and grandeur of the room, the television was rather disappointing in size and outdated

    superb location

    their heating system sucks. first they put us in a room where the heating system does not work at all , after they changed the room, the heating system was very poor. the fact that they have extra small room heaters for rooms proves that they know well about their problem. still the location is worth the pain

    The helpful staff (both Reception and room cleaners). We also appreciated having a kitchen and washer and dryer. Good shower. Very comfortable large bed. Good airconditioning. This is a decent hotel for the business traveller.

    Location - a lot of traffic noise. The furnishings were somewhat tired and shabby.

    What are classified as balconies - Are not really. There is barely enough room for you to stand on them. Sliding doors open in the bedroom and lounge but they are about 12 inches wide. I asked the property regarding them having balconies and they said yes - Not what I expected.

    Right in CBD. Easy to access shops, food, and friends. Convenient to Train station. Walkable to most venues!

    Room was not as pictured on the website. Staff was not responsive to my needs. Wanted to change room, but they refused. Towels were not complete. Should have face towel, hand twel n bath towel. Would have two of the three. Their housekeeping service was poor. Missing kitchen items, no ice jug to pick up ice. Chairs were stained n worn out. Lights were dim. Seems they had less than the required light bulbs in the light fixtures.

    Not much. Close to Darling Harbour and the City.

    Rooms were very poor and need updating. The lounge area was filthly and could do with a good clean. TV totally out of date and had poor reception. The bed was not comfortable and the noise from the traffic made it difficult to sleep. Double glazing on the windows would correct this. Kitchen facilitied were poor. The clothes dryer was broken and the hot water pressure in the shower kept changing which made it unpleasent to shower. Had to ask for a hair dryer as none was supplied. Charging for parking was over the top. Drop off and pick up not possible directly out the front of the hotel, one had to go around the corner and half way up the street. With better research and a little more time we could have found a much better hotel and at a cheeper price. Photos on the website of the hotel did not live up to our expections. very disapointing.

    Location - Darling Harbour has the best playground I have ever seen, the dining experience was good, and it was easy enough to get to Circular Quay and major attractions. Price - well, at least, compared to other apartments in cbd. 2 baby cots in 1-bedroom apartment for free.

    Our stroller did not fit into the apartment - we had to collapse it every time. The furniture has definitely seen its better times. The kitchenware was barely enough to last through a 9-day stay, and not enough to make the dishwasher useful. The staff were trying to charge the costs to my credit card twice - and I do not think they were feeling sorry for that, nor were they going to change anything about their internal communications. The baby cots, even though free, are only good enough for <1 yo infants.

    Loved the room service, we phoned for some extras to be brought to our room and they were there within 10 minutes. Staff at reception were so helpful all day, we arrived early and they kept me informed as to when our room would be available. Would stay there again without hesitation.
