There was nothing wrong with this hotel and the very busy staff did whatever they could to help visitors. I was on a work trip and due to back office problems my booking had jot been paid for. The man at check in let me go up t my room while he sorted out payment with the company's booking service, for which I was very grateful. He could have made me do it.

The Holiday inn isn't usally a hotel chain we stay at but given the limited availablity of hotels for New Year in Sydney at the time of booking we decided to go for it and I have to say it was an excellent stay.

Arrived on New Year Eve and despite check in being extremely busy we waited less than 5 minutes. The staff were pleasant, asked us about our plans for the evening and gave handy tios about where was best to view the fireworks etc.

We were given a corner room on the top floor which was modern, clean and extremely well equiped. There was a seperate sofa and arm chair and made a very relaxing stay. The bathroom was basic but functioned as you would expected and had nice toiletries.

Running late for New Year dinner reservations the concerige went out of their way to get us a taxi (this was difficult as lots of the roads in the area closed NYE) which was really apprecaiated. They were equally helpful at the end of the holiday including printing directions to the Hunter Valley as we had hired a car. The bar was nice and reasonably priced - especially at happy hour.

The hotel is in a good location for Darling Harbour, Exhibition centre, China town and Paddys Market. There is also a monorail station across the road meaning you can easily get around the rest of the city centre.

The only negative was the cost of wifi, however, if you stand outside facining MAcDonalds opposite you can pick up theirs for free!

All in all great value for money and an excellent stay in Sydney, look forward to staying here again.

As we were going to see a concert at the Entertainment Centre this hotel could not of been any closer!!!!! Staff were very friendly and the beds were the softest and most comfortablest beds I have slept in in any hotel. As we were travelling with our 3 and a half year old son, I loved the fact that the mini bar was empty but could order drinks or mini bar items from housekeeping as I hate going to a hotel and my son pulling everything or wanting everything from the minibar. Although in the middle of the city, you could not hear a single noise from outside due to to double glassed windows. The only thing that I didn't like about the hotel was the bright orange feauture wall in the room!!! Definitely stay at this hotel again!!!

We stayed here after a long train trip. It was comfortable and quiet. The location is excellent. So close to so many different things. I would defiantly stay again. The only thing is I wish they still put some things in the mini bar e.g. Water. But that seems to be standard these days.

This is a lovely hotel built in what used to be a storehouse, the staff are effective and efficient though I wouldn't say over friendly. I was afforded all the usual customaries that a platinum priority club member gets, with a room upgrade. This hotel has good rooms great views over to the right of darling harbour and is in easy walking distance to Darling harbour, the powerhouse museum, the markets and Sydney entertainment centre is across the road, and china town just behind. All in all a very good and handy hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for front facing room up higher.
