The location is great. It's very close to Paddy's Market and a short walk to Darling Harbour! The room/facilities are mediocre. The 29.95 breakfast buffet is a rip off! The food was cold at 9 a.m. and they don't provide any service for the fee. The floor was visibly dirty and dusty. Even though they were kind enough to offer...

At my stay during New Years at the holiday inn, darling harbour I received a mediocre experience. The location was okay, round the corner of China town which offers a variety of different restaurants; and it is also a couple of roads away from George Street which is the Main Street to the Sydney Quay's which is helpful for directional...

Clean rooms, pretty quiet, great location (Paddy's Markets at the end of the street) with a short walk to Darling harbour. As my partner had stayed there a few years before we were classed as members and were upgraded and given a late checkout time. This was a great surprise. Staff were friendly & very helpful

Room was clean, spacious. Good location. Walk to Darling Harbour and next door to China Town and markets. Seemed understaffed as we all had to wait a while to check in - rooms were not ready. Told we'd get a VIP room?? Didn't see anything special so possibly telling porkies due to the room not being available. Kids said spa...

Booked this hotel as a one night stay prior to joining a cruise. Its a typical Holiday Inn in design, basic but very nice and clean. Room had 2 doubles and was very clean, more than ample for one night stay. We ate at the bar in the evening as we had a late arrival and the food was very...

We stayed for three nights at this hotel in Sydney (over the New Year holiday) and enjoyed ourselves. The location is good; within 10 minutes walking distance to Darling Harbour and Chinatown is a lane behind the hotel but it is a good 20-25 min walk to the Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay, the Rocks and other attractions....

The property is located very close to the darling harbour. Rooms are very basic. Lot of cheap furniture.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Emanating a quiet charm right in the middle of the action, Holiday Inn Darling Harbour has the best that Sydney has to offer on its doorstep. A heritage listed former Wool Store cloaks the northern wing of the hotel in history. Situated in the southern end of Sydney's central business district, the hotel is ideally positioned to allow you to make the most of your visit to Sydney. Take a leisurely stroll through Darling Harbour with its many attractions. The vibrant Chinatown and Latin Quarter are close by and the Qantas Credit Union Arena is right across the road. You can walk to some of Sydney's best restaurants, theatres and shopping complexes. For something a little different, board a ferry or the light rail for sightseeing. Trains and buses to Pitt Street Mall shopping precinct and Circular Quay are nearby too. ... more   less
