We stayed here for one night, but our experience with this hotel is not good.. from the beginning the lady who took our reservation look confused with what she is doing, not look helping at all. I work in hotel aswell so i know how what we should do with our guests. 2nd we talked to someone too in front office but he also not helping and not really friendly aswell, i think the problem is the front office staff because i found that housekeeping staff are very nice and friendly. And i dont think im gonna back to this hotel again even tho the room was so good, i better back to novotel darling harbour instead of here, they are very nice and good services for sure. But the room itself is clean, big room, nice room i like everything about the room, the view, surrounding by restaurant and cafes, thats the only good point for this hotel.. my friend about to aksed me this hotel but after experience this i really will not recommending thing hotel to anyone.. and the last part we cannot go out from the parking building the ticket is not working, my husband ran to the hotwl again to asked and tell them but they told us too call the intercom but the guy from intercom told us tontaok to hotel stuff because they cant opened it, need to dealing with the hotel, so he ran back AGAIN to the hotel but the hotel still told is to call the intercom, in this situation my husband already late to work and we need to going back to the mountains ASAP, its so frustrating and my son upset because we took long time in parking building.. finally the staff cane with us but still need to call intercom and someone in intercom pick up so so long.. such a waste of time

Perfect location. Next to the many excellent dining options within Chinatown, Paddy’s Market, Market City Mall, and a short walk to Darling Harbour and the Town Square shopping area. First impressions: Beautiful decor, with lobby, common areas and rooms maintained to a high standard. Very friendly and courteous reception staff, especially Thomas who checked us in and provided a very warm welcome when we arrived. His cheerfulness and welcoming nature is a real asset to the hotel, and started off a great stay for us at this hotel. Highly recommended and we will be back!

The service and quality of the hotel was amazing. The staff were excellent with great service. Very polite and helpful with where we needed to go. Went out of there way to find a park as a storm was coming in. Would recommend.

Enjoyed our stay here with the family. Good amenities, classic Accor comfort and sumptuous breakfast with buffet and ala carte. The only problem was that the name was deceiving. We initially thought we booked at the Darling Harbour one, when we tried to check in we were told we were at the wrong property so we had to drive to the other Novotel - Darling Square. In summary, the location wasn’t that bad, just that it wasn’t at the harbour.

Spent Saturday and Sunday night here on the Long weekend and had another great stay. Moana was very helpful with our early check in and the room on the 6th floor was very nice. Had 2 breakfasts here and Christina and Pete were fantastic both days. The hotel is so close to everything and we love staying here and we will be back for sure.
