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...

The room we were allocated was large, clean and tastefully furnished. The view from our room was over Darling Harbour and therefore convenient for walking. The lobby has a café and restaurant. The staff were excellent and always helpful. Would definitely recommend .

Worst 5-star hotel ever. It's considered quite pricey but it's not worth the money. The wifi is the worst, practically it's not even working. You even have to pay 55bucks for the parking lot, like there is no complementary parking space even for in-house guest.

This 3 night stay with my teenage son and his friend was a last minute decision. We usually stay in the Darling Harbour precinct and Novotel was a little indulgence over the usual apartment style experience of the past few visits. Upon arrival, there was an efficient porter service for our luggage. Up to reception where we were quickly checked...

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.
