    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by small bed but cleaning is ok staff should be improve - number of staff - survice mind September 29, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay! I stayed at the Holiday Inn Darling Harbour whilst in Sydney attending a week long training session. The location was perfect and close to everything. The staff were extremely efficient, friendly and went out of their way to make me feel welcome. After a long day in training i didn't feel like leaving the hotel at night for meals and there was no need to. The amount of dining options with in the hotel was fantastic. Food was always lovely! The room was clean and well kept. The bathroom was clean and okay on the whole. Might need a bit a refresh soon though to match the rest of the hotel. Will stay again :)! September 29, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location and Great Staff I travel regularly for business and always stay at this Hotel when in Sydney. It has a great location to get out and walk around the city and Darling Harbour. The best part is the staff at this hotel , they friendly and make you feel at home. September 29, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service, wonderful staff. Our stay was everything we wanted; ideal location, close to Darling Harbour. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. September 28, 2014
    Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great location, good service, but watch out for WiFi connectivity on higher floors The hotel is at an excellent location - very convenient to all usual business destinations and local attractions. Restaurant is quite good too - folks working there very pleasant to deal with. WiFi connectivity though gets bad as you go towards higher floors - network is great on the ground floor where the entrance and bars are (is it on purpose so visitors spend time at the bars?), but the high floor I was upgraded to had very poor connectivity so I could simply forget about doing anything that needed internet from the room. September 27, 2014
    Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by No Hot water pressure We felt like we were staying in a 3 rd world hotel, as there was little water pressure in the bathroom tap and shower, terrible, when you come back to the room to have a nice shower. September 25, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good, reliable hotel One of the better night's sleep, and certainly among the best value, available in Sydney. September 24, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceptional guest room,large and comfortable We were upgraded to a suite with a great view and enjoyed the general atmosphere and ambience of the hotel made all the better by the friendly attentive staff. September 21, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service. From the minute we walked into the hotel we were greeted with fantastic staff who were willing to help us with all our needs. It was fantastic to see such dedication from staff to provide the best service possible. Late checkout was provided which gave us the piece of mind to enjoy the Sydney city a little longer before having to pack our bags and return to reality. The room was fresh and clean and was easy to relax in. Room service was prompt and the food was amazing. Once we got home, we told everyone we knew about our wonderful stay. September 20, 2014

    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and reasonable price I like this hotel for its location and value for money. The only problem is that they seem to get alot of tourists and the queue for breakfast can be quite long in the morning September 14, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Service overall Really enjoyed staying here. It's near the Darling Harbour, breakfast was great and the bed was really comfortable. September 14, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Went in not thinking much Came out absolutely satisfied and with a new (positive) opinion about Holiday Inn. September 10, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great allround stay Staff were the most helpful and courteous people we have encountered for a long time.Totally enjoyed the whole atmosphere very friendly can't wait to come back. September 9, 2014
    Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not the best Holiday Inn experience I spent one evening at this hotel and normally stay in Holiday Inn hotels nationally as my company has a national agreement with this hotel chain. I found the rooms to be tired and dated. Also was not happy that there was no mini bar options avaliable to me. Also the front counter desk did not know much about the area. I did eventually get some good information from Concierge. No where near as nice as Holiday Inn Mascot which is where I would normally stay. September 8, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great hotel and service The Holiday Inn is in a great location, A great place and plenty to see and do, while catching up with friends and family. The location is very central to restuarants,nightlife and tourist attractions and of course shopping, entertainment centre and the markets just to name a few. There are many types of transport close by and ferries and cruises also. All the Staff at Holiday Inn was the most friendliest people i have ever met and very helpful. September 7, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staying at Holiday Inn - Darling Harbour Sydney Good Location. This hotel has some great staff, they made life bearable for the 34 days I stayed. Especially, Esra ( assistant manager) Avishek, Rudi and others in the Breakfast room/Bar/ Bar restaurant. By the way, the Breakfast set up is just all wrong! The room needs redesigning, everyone is in everyone else's way. Staff, Food, guests, there is no room to move, unless the place is empty, which it is not most of the time, this hotel caters for mass tourism from China/HK, Thailand. And finally Holiday Inn needs to get up to the same standard as found in UK, Singapore, HK. It needs a proper Exec Floor and lounge September 7, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beyond our expectations On arrival we were upgraded to a suite as we were on our honeymoon. The hotel also brought us a bottle of bubbly and some chocolate dipped strawberries which was a lovely touch. The suite itself was nice, roomy and peaceful, up on the top floor - we wished we could have stayed longer. The staff at the front desk also went above and beyond contributing to our taxi fare when the airport shuttle that we'd booked phoned to say they weren't coming! We were really impressed and would recommend! September 6, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location and comfortable rooms Conveniently located in walking distance of many attractions. Quiet, comfortable room. Great breakfast although dining area can be crowded. Professional and courteous staff. They delivered an important phone call immediately. WiFi was dependable. September 4, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel. Great location. This hotel is in a great location, handy to everything. The staff are every friendly, professional and helpful.

    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great value for money Holiday Inn, Darling Harbour makes a great value for money, no frills hotel. Proximity to Chinatown opens up tons of eating options all within a 5 min walk. Market city mall / Paddys market are right next door which offer great value shopping bargains and further eating options. Connectivity in terms of bus/tram/train is excellent. August 27, 2014
    Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great location, Nice room but poor breakfast Great location, right next to China Town and the Entertainment Centre and within walking distance to Darling Harbour.and the CBD. The Reception Staff and Valet attendant were friendly and attentive. Unfortunately the breakfast was very poor. The cooked breakfast products were cold, dry and looked like they had been sitting for many hours . August 27, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No complaints, clean rooms and good service Had a good experience at this location , rooms were clean, bed was comfortable, front desk staff was very accommodating. My travel plans changed so I showed up at the hotel very early on the day of checking in. The front desk staff were able to get me a room within a short time frame. It was very much appreciated and made my stay in Sydney much easier. I experienced NONE of the problems others have listed in previous reviews. (thus i felt compelled to write this review) August 21, 2014
