I loved their breakfast and it is walking distance from Darling harbour. The rooms have a great glass view but it is covered. The breakfast spread is lavish and there are many options to pick up. It makes a perfect combination for a holiday.

After an initial problem over our room, the hotel staff made sure that we were in a perfect room for our stay of 4 days up to New Year's Day. Whilst waiting for our room to be serviced ready to move in, we were given a complimentary drink. This was a nice touch, thank you Novotel. Our room was superb...

Beautifully decorated & fantastic naturally lit with glass all around....very impressive...unfortunately that's where the impressive ends..the room we had was very tired & dated.

You can get reasonable price deals by booking online- and as its a Novotel you get the great breakfast smorgasbord of excellent food and drinks- even fresh juice! You overlook Darling Harbour- are linked by nearby walkway in the famous shopping centre and attractions. Shopping is pretty good here for souvenirs as well. You can walk through the gardens then...

Stayed for business with two nights added for personal time. Bed and pillows were extremely comfortable and made for great nights sleep. As per previous reviews they are upgrading the Hotel so if you want to stay in the new part ask when booking and Level 5 is not it. Also if you want a view of Darling Harbour make...

Staff need a refresher in customer service. The lady who checked us in seemed to be the only person who knew what that was, the rest gave us problems for answers. Very poor considering the price you pay and their once upon a time good reputation. I would definitely explore other options.

The service was excellent and we were spoilt for being members of Accor. The room had a brilliant view over the CBD. The hotel restaurant had very tasty food and superb service. The customer service manager, Michael, rang to let us know the room was ready and was very helpful.

You will love half the things about the Novotel on Darling Harbour and hate the other half. On one side of the coin you notice how lovely the staff are, how nice the reception area is, how good the bar and restaurant is for both breakfast and dinner/drinks and how great the location is. On the other side however, the...

Although the weather was dreadful, the view from the hotel room didn't disappoint. Staff at the checkin desk were super efficient and friendly. So many bars and restaurants to choose from ...most more than reasonably priced. I first stayed at this hotel when it first opened and although it has dated a little, the rooms are meticulously clean and great...

Booked a room for a family of 4. Website states 2 double beds for 4 person. Ended up the beds were super single, no way to fit 4 grown up adults. Spoke to the manager and he proudly replied: there's no where we stated that it's queen size bed. Playing with verbs now. I felt mis-selled. The manager also said...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
