“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Great location at Darling Harbour at the end of King St. Walk into the city, catch a ferry or use the hop on off bus. Always easy to get a cab. Helpful staff who couldn't do enough for us. We were there for a mini break and to attend a couple of events. I would also use this location for a work stay. The only downside - it was very noisy on the balcony but that is what you get in a big city. The room was clean and comfy.

Room Tip: Room on water side.

We went to Sydney for our 10 yr wedding anniversary, first trip away without children etc etc so very special. First impression of Adina was that it was nice, but not outstanding (aging a bit on outside and tucked away a little) and then we met Carly. It could have been a shoebox in the outback to be honest, she would have made it seem like a 5 star experience regardless. She addressed us by name always, SO polite and efficient and absolutely nothing was a problem. All of the staff were genuinely lovely and very helpful, Carly was the one that welcomed us and took such great care of us those first few days. Great stay, facilities were overall very good. Pricey compared to home (Auckland) but comparable for Sydney I am guessing. It ended up being right in the middle of everything we walked to Rocks, Opera House, down to China Town, over to Surrey Hills and Oxford Street and over to the casino and it was all no drama. Fantastic.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a One bedroom and it was fantastic. No room around the bed to speak of but it di...

I stayed at the Adina recently on a work trip and found the hotel to be comfortable without being overly luxurious, rooms were well appointed with typical mod-cons, including a bar fridge (that kept freezing up), microwave, hairdryer etc.

Decor throughout the hotel was modern, and the property is well maintained.Reception check in was smooth, if not a little express.

Mezbah Restaurant is attached to the hotel and allow you to charge back to your room, although cuisine is Moroccan but was very nice nonetheless. There is a convenience store just around from the restaurant.

The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk to Darling Harbor which has multiple restaurants and bars, likewise the aquarium is close to the hotel. Pitt Street mall is around a 10 minute walk.
Not a bad choice if you can get a good rate.

Stayed in February for work and had a great time. Spacious clean rooms, super helpful staff and great location. Slightly pricey but i guess that was the same everywhere at the,time.
will definitely come back!

My partner and I stayed here for 10 nights from 2 to 12 March - a fantastic location which is so close to Darling Harbour - an ideal situation to be able to walk to even at night and feel safe. The hotel was fantastic to stay in - the room was great - clean and tidy and perfect for our stay. All the staff were so helpful and friendly - the rooms were serviced on a daily basis and the maids did a great job - the front line staff were great and always friendly and helpful - would definitely stay there again.

The 2 small things I would point out would be the computer downstairs was very slow on the internet and kept throwing me out of the programme I was in and the pool was quite cold and it is advertised as a heated pool.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We stayed at the Adina Harbourside for 2 nights - these were complimentary nights - due to poor service we had encountered from another Toga Hotel property. I must admit location is very good right on King Street Wharf a very easy walk to Cockle Bay Wharf and Darling Harbour also being a short walk to The Rocks, Circular Quay, Chinatown and Hyde Park. So no complaints in regard to the location.

Toga Hotels have a policy to debit your credit card upon check in, which is not common place with other hotel chains- such as Accor and ICH Properties, this is somewhat annoying as they charge your credit card the full amount upon departure and it can take several days to have the deposit funds credited back to your card.

The room we had at this property was new and clean, so no complaints with comfort or cleanliness of the room. The room was very narrow, the bathroom was new and clean, despite the glass shelf being on such an angle that you could not sit anything on it. I had to do some home renovations and " fix this myself by inserting some cardboard into the channel that the glass sat in, allowing it to sit straight". Our safe was difficult to use, so the maintenance man came to have a look at it, seemingly you just had to press the numbers "very hard", we reported the glass shelf to him, but that fell on deaf ears. The cafe downstairs is quiet obviously independently owned by very nice people that make lovely coffee, however the breakfast menu is very middle eastern and very limited for choice if you are not an adventurous eater.
The staff seemed very happy and were pleasant. The cafe downstairs does all the room service meals, we had the warm Olives and Haloumi, which were both nice as an afternoon snack.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your recent review.
We are pleased to read you found our location great and rooms clean and comfortable.
To clarify your comment in regards to a "bond" on your credit card this is in fact a pre authorisation and is common practice in all hotels worldwide including Accor and IHG. Funds are held upon arrival to cover any possible incidental charges and on departure this amount will be used towards any charges occured. The remainder of the hold will be released back on your card though this may take 3-5 days. If an urgent release is required this can be organised the same day.
I'm sorry you feel we did not impress you much, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the hotel if you would like to discuss any part of your stay further.

Kind Regards,

Malin Wigley
