The hotel is nice and is conveniently located, but the breakfast is the worst I've seen among multiple Novotel hotels. Easy to reach Darling Harbour, but a little bit of walking to the closest train station.

Good proximity to Darling Harbour. A bit of a walk to Central Station. Hotel room was a good size. I feel the room and bathroom need a good face lift. Staff were obliging. Breakfast was excellent. We would stay again.

It's one block from Chinatown with hundreds of restaurants and a 10 minute walk through a park past the Chinese garden to Darling Harbour. The rooms are large with king beds and the bathroom is substantial. The breakfast is ok...

The hotel was really nice! Location AMAZING, good wifi, very nice breakfast and big rooms! We went for our honeymoon and they sent us a complimentary desert! How nice of them! We think they should just upgrade their bathrooms a bit and maybe add a better a/c system! However we would DEFINITELY go back!
