NowMoreWellTravelled 07/07/2020 TripAdvisor review

Coming out of lockdown but limited to travel within our own city, decided to stay in one of the larger rooms in Novotel Sydney Central The suite, though roomy enough, was good size for our shorter stay. Fitout is reasonable though small things such as a wobbly main table could be improved Perhaps due to numbers of guests, the floor was quite quiet and despite central city location, no issues with sleep Partially because the hotel was coming back on-stream, I felt the service was even better than the high usual standards, with front desk particularly accommodating to our family's needs and very welcoming to the boisterous brood Food service was a touch on slower side but given revised guest/staff ratios understandably so; breakfast itself remained delicious The location, at the heart of Chinatown, is still great; so many eat options regardless of wallet, plus close to light rail/Central/buses so convenient to get around the entire city

Dear NowMoreWellTravelled, Thank you for your recent stay with us at the Novotel Sydney Central. We are glad to hear that you had an amazing stay from our welcoming team to our delicious breakfast, and that you found our location convenient for all your needs!

Ryan C. Business - 27/06/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Check in was efficient and and all reception staff were very friendly throughout my stay. The bar staff were not as friendly for some reason. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The bed and pillows great. The bathroom was clean and nice, but the shower was an over bath one and was slightly awkward to get in and out of past the toilet. The toilet paper holder was under the vanity and was a big stretch to get to from the toilet. Location is what made this hotel a great choice, with a Woolworths and Bottle Shop a 2 min walk away, and a myriad of fantastic restaurants to choose from were surrounding the hotel, naturally the majority being different types of Asian cuisine due to being in Chinatown area.

Dear Ryan, Thank you for your recent stay at the Novotel Sydney Central. We are delighted to hear that you found your room comfortable for your stay and that our location is convenient to your needs. I trust that you had an enjoyable time with us. As for your concerns mentioned, I have passed your feedback on to ensure that the appropriate measures are taken to improve our services for our guests and we appreciate you taking the time to let us know. Thank you for your loyalty to Accor and we look forward to be welcoming you back in the future. Kind Regards, Nicolette Ng Assistant Front Office Manager

The hotel was understandably quite given Covid 19. However the young lady on reception who checked us in and out was very god at her job, very friendly, remembered our names and was extremely helpful with some issues getting out of the car park. These are the experiences that make people return to a hotel.

John S. Couples - 20/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We only stayed one night this time but everything was of the usual high standard. My wife and I have stayed at Novotels at cities including Sydney, Brisbane, Glasgow and Vilnius (Lithuania) and they have all been better than more expensive hotels. The consistent provision of firm pillows, top sheets, blankets, solid soap, face washers, uncomplicated shower/bath taps and other twentieth century inclusions is more important to us than twenty first century gadgets.

Dear Mr. S., Thank you for your recent stay at the Novotel Sydney Central and for a fantastic 100/100 review! I am delighted to know that you had a seamless experience with us and that you enjoy staying at Novotel properties aka your 'home away from'.
