I stayed here for business for 3 nights. The room was average size, bed very comfortable, and everything was very clean. Staff on reception and in the restaurant were friendly and helpful. What surprised me was the quietness of the rooms. No noise was heard from adjoining rooms at all. Taxis were available at the door of the hotel and it is very well positioned next to the Darling Harbour precinct, convention and exhibition centre, and China Town.

I have stayed a few times at Novotel Darling Square. Service is great. However, the morning buffet and ordered breakfast can be improved e.g fresh fruit. Selection of pillows. Most have been very high and too hard. The avocado on toast was a thin layer of something green, did not represent avocado at all. Cooked omelette is good and coffee.

Slightly Overpriced but decently renovated and located.

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

booonster Business - 25/11/2019 TripAdvisor review

Refurbished rooms with decent bedding and modern furnishings and finishing. Low ceilings and not much of a view; even when I was upgraded to the best view in the house (Chinese Garden Facing). Bathroom is renovated with good pressure on the 9th level rooms. Modern taps and amenities but could have more hooks/hanging features. Bed was sufficient soft yet decent support for the back. Armchair plus Side table for a ‘loungy’ afternoon watching the summer sun set behind the Harbour. Working table with swivel seat as basic requirements on a work trip. Location is perfect if close proximity to Chinatown needed. CDB is a short 5-10min walk but if heading into the heart or towards Opera House, a decent 20mins required. Nonetheless an interesting walk to explore the Sydney City Centre. Nice walk along the newly completed ICC Exhibition Centre beside Tumbalong Park towards the Darling Harbour. Not exactly and direct route from the Airport or to the Airport; expect to pay about $50-$70 on a basic cab.

Many thanks for sharing feedback on your experience, booonster. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Regards Scott
