We enjoyed the whole stay. Perfect location in the heart of darling harbour. The hotel is so clean. The breakfast was amazing. The pool was cold though. They said it's heated to 25° but it was freezing cold and i couldn't swim.

The hotel is nice, but for the price you can do much better. We got a superior corner room with a view of a quarter of the harbour. The glass and mirror was dirty. We did not have signal on the TV. We got one lufer, and when we asked for another one, we got two pairs of slippers instead. You don't get any water unless you want to pay $8 for a bottle. Bath salts need to be ordered, and when we did, we got the wrong one. We got some different pillows, again, they delivered the wrong ones. Staff took a very long time to bring things, our bags took about 2-3 hours to get to our room. Parking is about $90. Overall pretty disappointing for the price.
