In was disappointed in the room overall, i have stayed in The Star complex before at The Darling and it was fantastic but the Apartments in Astral Residence were very disappointing for what they charge a night, our room had a bad smell and the so called King bed was 2 king singles put together but were not even so it was very odd and something that could not have n]been missed. I really like the complex but the Residence part will not get me again.

Not 5 star propertu

Posted Dec 11, 2012
Pros: Location
Cons: Amenities
Location: Location is the only thing this hotel has to offer
This was supposed to be a five star property yet we had no swimming pool, terrible service from front of house, no reception to watch tv and when we left our computer charger and called to enquire about it, everybody would pass the call on ad had to follow this up for 2 days . Not 5 star service or quality!

I'll not Stay in This Hotel again

Posted Nov 25, 2012
Cons: House Keeping
Location: Good
The house keeping in the hotel is very very bad. One day they didn't replace the towels and in the second day they take them and forget to put new ones. They didn't clean (or replace) the tea and coffee cups unless you ask them to do.

Pros: location

Posted Nov 15, 2012
Pros: Location and buzzing upbeat atmosphere
Cons: The standard of the room was misleading
Location: A short stroll from the bars and cafes at Darling harbour, also theatre next door and different eating places within hotel.
Very disappointing, as the description of the hotel did not match the actual standard of the room. We found it very basic. Entrance very grand and it was in a good location for Darling Harbour.

Fantasic Weekend

Posted Oct 29, 2012
Pros: The size of the split level apartment style was amazing.
Cons: Absolutely nothing
A faultless weekend, the unexpected upgrade was very much appreciated. The room was by far the best I have ever stayed in..
