Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

The hotel itself was very nice, staff were great and rooms a good size. I had booked two rooms, one king size for myself and a twin for my mum and friend. Both rooms were a very good size. Disappointed there wasn't anything in the mini bar - empty so you can fill it yourself! My bed was too soft...

Great stay and close to ICC. Very friendly service. Walking distance to China town , CBD and Darling Harbour precinct. Rooms good. Bathrooms a bit old but in ok conditions. Will use again. Free Wifi. Car parking only available in park house next block. This is the only minus.

Stayed here on a recent trip. Having never been to Sydney it seemed a safe option. On arrival the construction outside is off-putting. I know it's not their fault and there's lots of work going on around Sydney. Have to say though, it didn't disrupt our stay. We arrived early after a long flight . Room wasn't available but they...

Dear CelticFire, Thanks so much for providing your recent stay feedback with us. It would be so excited to visit Sydney the very first time and would feel there are so much to see and explore in this great city.

OK, so it is a four star Holiday Inn, and not a five star, but our bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, room very clean, breakfast excellent (although the restaurant where b/fast is served is quite noisy with lots of hard surfaces), and staff friendly.

Decided to stay with Holiday Inn Darling Harbour which I have not done so before, as I am usually assigned to Four Points by our corporate administrator. Anyway, made the change and I am glad I did. The location of this hotel is simply marvelous as I was just within 5 mins walk to the Darling Harbour. The services provided...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
