“Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013 via mobile

Stayed here during our trip to Sydney for the British Lions tour and could not have been happier. It served our purpose perfectly , ten minutes walk to circular quay or ten minutes walk to Darling Harbour etc so it was a great base to sleep at night and then get out about to explore the sights and bars of Sydney. Furthermore the cost for such a central location was fantastic. Would recommend it and will defi use next time we are back in Sydney .

I spent 5 nights at these self catering apartments. I made my booking using Groupon coupons so the price was OK.
The location is very central, only 5 minutes from the Main Street in Sydney, George Street and a comfortable 10 minutes from the beautiful Darling Harbour.
A point to bear in mind. This is not an hotel, it's a complex of self catering apartments. Don't expect daily house keeping etc. if you want clean towels, you must go to reception & pay for them. Same for other services.
Once you understand what you're booking, it's good value at the Groupon price.
I'd hate to pay the full price, because, like absolutely everything in Sydney, it's grossly overpriced.

Top spot, easy walk from the city, the rocks, circular quay and darling harbour. Rooms and place were OK, a bit old and tired, but you get what you pay for. The first room we were given was on the top (4th) floor which has a problem with damp and our roof had mould on it, and smelled of damp. We asked for another room on the 2nd floor which was fine. There was a bit of traffic noise from the street outside but not too bad. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 4th floor are damp affected.

These serviced apartments were good value for money and ideal if you just want somewhere to sleep and shower. The room was large and well equipped. It had an outdoor terrace which we didn't make use of. Firstly, it was a really ugly space, and not very clean. But also, it was just below the public footpath with people walking just above our heady.
It was also quite noisy as it was on the road side, there was no view and it could also get very hot and stuffy, although it did have a good air conditioning unit.
The staff on reception where friendly and helpful. The apartments are very well placed for Darling Harbour and about a 20 minute walk to Circular Quay. Shops, bars and restaurants are nearby, as are the public transport links. About 30m away was a lovely cafe where you could get reasonably priced drinks and snacks as well as free wifi.
If you read other reviews, there are better rooms with better views so I would request this on booking again.
Communication before arrival was very good and staff offered useful advice around transfers and out of our checking in.
If you are on a budget, and not bothered about pretty views, then this is ideal.

Room Tip: Request a room harbour side away from the freeway and above ground.

Recently had a 3 night stay at Napoleon on Kent. After reading some recent reviews before we left, I was a bit worried. However, we had a great stay. Our studio room on the 3rd floor was well equipped and comfortable and had a water view. As other contributors have noted, the cleaning could be improved. I think the carpet was relatively new and so was clean, as was the bathroom. However, the kitchen floor and the balcony both needed a good scrub. Minimal traffic noise, probably because we were there over a weekend. I think it would be much noisier during the week days. We enjoyed walking to the Rocks, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Wynyard station was very close too. Would stay here again.

The location is great. Short wlk to Darling Harbour and about 20 min walk to the Rocks & Circular Quay. That's as good as it gets. We stayed there recently April 2013 and all I can say is do not be fooled by the photos on the website/s. The room was dirty and so was the furniture.
Watch out for the extra charge regarding your rubbish. They will charge you $35.00 if you do not remove your rubbish on departure. The location is also very noisy at night.

Room Tip: Don't stay here
