Weekend in the big smoke. Couldn't be better located, friendly staff. Easy step to dining alternatives or local Mini marts to snack in! Close to business needs and to Darling Harbour venues. harbour Ferry transport equally close.

We stayed here for 3 nights recently for a mini-holiday. The location is amazing - right on Darling Harbour, next door to the Aquarium and Wildlife Zoo, and in easy walking distance of The Rocks, the city and Circular Quay (which was handy as we took the ferry from there to Taronga Zoo - fantastic).

The hotel was nicely presented and the staff were very professional and welcoming, happy to help whenever they could. We had booked a standard one bedroom apartment but were advised on arrival that we'd been upgraded to a premier one bedroom apartment which gave us a bit more of a view. Really appreciated that. There was no hotel noise and I could only hear a distant hum of the traffic and activities outside from our top floor location.

The apartment itself was beautifully clean and at the risk of sounding a bit weird, I have to say the towels were the nicest, fluffiest towels I've ever had provided at a hotel! I won't bore you with all the inclusions - they are on the website - but the apartment had everything we could need for our holiday, which just made it easier to relax, go sightseeing and explore local restaurants!

There is a restaurant downstairs, Mezbah, which you can dine in or order room service from - we did both. The service was consistently good, and the food was really lovely, particularly the bread, dips, and breakfast board. They were also able to provide us with a highchair which was great - always makes dining out a little bit easier.

I highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to be close to Darling Harbour and the city, including families with kids. We will return here next time we visit Sydney. Thanks to all the staff at Adina for a great stay.

Tips:

- Deals: Bookings can be made via a variety of booking sites including the TFE hotels website. At the time I booked all the prices were about the same, but have a look, and if there are no deals have a look to see if there is a discount offered on full rates if you subscribe to the TFE newsletter.

- Cot bedding: It was only $5/night to get a cot (big enough for age 2 and under) supplied which was great. The only bedding it came with was a big sheet. I don't know if they have any other bedding because we didn't ask - we had a cot blanket, but you may need to bring your own cot bedding or ask for more if you need.

- Ferries: Have a look at the ferries website at fares - on Sundays you can get $2.50 ferry tickets :)

Nice place to stay. Easy to get to. People are nice there but not the best bed I've slept in but will do for the nights your there. You can come and go as you please. My friend had a great weekend away

Very nice hotel but staff need training badly. On 4 occasions of staying at this property I have had to get my credit card refunded as a result of very poor management at front desk. This time I was charged twice for my accommodation. Be careful & check your credit card statement.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your recent review.
Upon arrival a pre authorisation is taken to guarantee the accommodation and any incidental charges that may occur. Upon departure you opted to finalise the charges with Eftpos rather then to the card you gave us on check-in, hence, the authorisation was still pending. Upon your request we released the funds urgently with your bank. I'm sorry if you were under the impression that we double charged you but hope that everything is clarified now.

Kind Regards,

Malin Wigley

The place was good but the cleanliness let it down unfortunately. The fridge was dirty and so was the toilet seat. Other than that i liked the place. The pool and gym looked good aswell. My rating: 7/10
