Great harbour views

Posted Apr 28, 2015
Pros: Views, affordability, hotel staff, proximity to public transport.
We spent 2 nights here over ANZAC weekend. The hotel is built over the railway line adjacent to North Sydney station so was easy to find, simply up about 10 steps from Blue Street. We requested a room above the 7th floor and were pleased to find we were on the 13th floor, with a fantastic view of the Harbour Bridge and the city. We enjoyed a nice stroll each morning down to to the ferry at Luna Park, then catching the ferry to Circular Quay. We came home each night on the train to avoid walking up the hill from Luna Park. The room was very clean, comfortable and affordable, we also enjoyed a very nice meal at the in house restaurant. I therefore would recommend this hotel however believe the higher floors are the most desirable.

Great place for visiting Sydney

Posted Mar 29, 2015
Pros: Great loction
Cons: Starting to get a little tired
This hotel is in a great location with fantastic views to the city. It's across the street from a decent shopping plaza and right on the train line which gives easy access into the city (2 stops and your there). It's also very easy to get to and from the airport via the train. The hotel lobby and bar area has a nice ambience, and the staff seemed decent enough. Rooms were clean with and comfortable. Would definitely recommend to a friend, or stay again.

Excellent location and views

Rooms are clean, comfy rooms and hotel bar and food is nice! Small bar but nice!! Down side- Renting a Film is $15.... One you can get for $4 in your local dvd box and there's a window in the bathroom that looks out onto the room! Let's just say.....it's new to be fitted tighter and a block out!!

Great location, close to public transport for city

Posted Mar 18, 2015
The Staff are exceptionally kind & helpful. Nothing is a bother. Food & room amenities great but breakfast ends at 10am & is buffet style so get in quick! The Train that runs under the building was not a problem for us, we heard it occasionally but again, this was not a problem for us. Upon arrival (early morn) we were offered to check into our room early & upon check out we were offered for staff to store our luggage as they were aware our departing flight was not until 6pm.

Great view but noisy

Posted Mar 18, 2015
Pros: Location and views of harbour
Cons: Not sure what can be done about train noise. Maybe tell customers before hand?
Location: Great restaurants in nearby Blue Point road. Easy access to harbour bridge.
We wanted a hotel in North Sydney and this hotel was perfect for that location. The view of the harbour bridge from the room was fantastic. Only issue is that we were on level 2 and the trains run under the hotel so every time a train went through the room shook and it was noisy. Probably better if you could get a higher room.

Harbour View Hotel - Best of the Worst

Posted Mar 17, 2015
Pros: Not much, staff were friendly enough although did have a "I don't really care" attitude, that is they never completed what they said they were going t
Cons: Everything. Hotel is old needs a refurbish. Pillows need to be replaced. Beds need to be replaced.
Overall I was not satisfied with the hotel. Main points apart from the noise from the train below: * Booking through Expedia you actually get some of the worst rooms in the hotel, and to upgrade you need to pay extra * Beds were uncomfortable * Room smelled mouldy and basically old, pillows stunk of sweat and curtains were revolting * Staff were adequate * No complimentary Wifi ...amazing * No gym although they did offer the benefit of their partner at $12 a session ...incredible * Upon checking in the room was not fully cleaned from last occupant ie dirty towel and used soap. I asked for this to be rectified and 8hours later this still not had been actioned Overall I would not recommend this hotel, however it does seem to be the best in the area. Overpriced for the low quality.

worth for the money you spend. Comfortable room and the cleanliness was excellent. 24 hrs reception service is admirable.
