Best place to stay

So happy to be able to return to Novotel Sydney Central. We were very impressed with the absolutely outstanding staff, the cleanliness of the Hotel and the wonderful room. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for the staff, whether it was getting information, recommendations, helpful advice, even the offer of an umbrella when it was very wet. The food in the restaurant was excellent and so was the variety and food for room service. The hotel is in the perfect position with easy access to public transport, theatres, entertainment, and retail shopping.

Well located and refreshed

We had a short three day stay at this hotel due to attending an engagement party.

Location is in Chinatown and just a short 7 minute walk to Central Station.

Darling Harbour isnt far away and perhaps a 15 minute walk away.

We were upgraded from a King Standard to a King Executive. The differences in the roomn include a coffee maker, a high floor, water and the supply of robes and slippers. I did have to follow up on the robes and slippers as they were not present when we checked it.

Room was minimalistic but nice a clean and looks to have been refreshed not too long ago. Bathroom has a bath/shower.

I wasn't a fan of room service only upon request. This should be better communicated as we missed out on our clean after the first night due to lack of knowing.

Breakfast is buffet on Saturday and Sunday with 2 choices from the menu on the other days including a plate of pastries, coffee and juice. Breakfast I thought was substantial.

I also enjoyed Thomas Street Bar with all day $7 beers and other specials.

Overall a very good stay.

Will stay again!!!

Perfect spot and wonderful staff

Parking was very well priced and onsite which made things much easier for us

The staff on arrival were really friendly and gave our toddlers a gift (little bag of activities)
After a car trip this was more of a gift for us as parents!!
Kept them happy during check in and while we rested in room after the drive

There is also a dedicated area in the lobby for the kids set up as a toy room, my kids loved this

The room was clean and comfortable

We had a buffet breakfast on the Sunday (I think this option is only on the weekends) kids are free
Food was nice, fresh squeezed juice,fresh pancakes ect

Very close to paddy’s markets (2 min walk)
Also Woolworths is one street over and for a family trip this was so convenient

Will most definitely stay again on our next trip thanks to the team for making this stay enjoyable
