Best breakfast ever! You won't find a better selection of fresh and a la carte breakfast and plenty of it. Served with a smile. Great location for the hotel.

This property is located right next to Chinatown and a bustling area of Sydney. The size of Sydney means you can't be right next to everything. Property is well maintained and modern; however, I stayed at two Novotel properties on my trip to Australia and it's pretty clear that they treat third party bookings (i.e. travel sites like Expedia) differently. This starts with the reception desk personnel, choice of rooms (always the least desirable locations and views, often near service activities), and just makes me wonder why they list their properties.
