We loved our 4 night stay at the Novotel Sydney Central! Close to train, light rail and fabulous dining options in Chinatown. We walked to our show at the Capitol Theatre. Always felt safe. Room was clean, beds fabulously comfortable, shower was strong and hot and buffet breakfast was 10/10! Staff always friendly and helpful and stored our luggage for us before check in and after check in. Would love to return one day!

The property is a bit dated but overall fine. Staff are friendly, breakfast is ok and the rooms are large. The pool is a little small for a hotel this size but it is well heated. The location is very walkable to a lot. 2nd time staying here. I would return

Everything is always great whenever we stay at Novotel. Novotel Sydney Central is a great place to stop over especially if you're arriving late...Chinatown is 5 minutes walk and restaurants are open till late. We arrived around 9pm and check-in was quick. The room was as always big. Although the lighting was not as good this time and one of the bed lamp/spotlight was partly unscrewed and we were afraid it'll fall on us and the spotlight handle would poke us. But overall, it's in a great location....near Paddington, Chinatown, Central Station and just a tram away to Darling Quarter/Harbour and just a train away to the Sydney Opera House, QVB, Kinokuniya and Dymocks and the shopping precinct. Parking was easy and all the public transport are accessible.

Great staff. The hotel has seen better days. Forget about reading a book in your bed the rooms are very dim. What happened to the welcome pack in the room with info about the hotel, etc? The gym is not a gym just treadmills in a hallway.
