Best hotel in Sydney

Posted Nov 22, 2016 on Wotif
The Darling is by far my favourite hotel when travelling to Sydney for work or play. The staff are friendly and efficient and the foyer has a scent that makes you want to stay forever! Make sure you have a cocktail at Sokyo before retiring for the night.

Absolute pleasure and stunning

Stayed at Jewel Suite. From check in to check out, rate 10 out of 10. The staff was more than friendly and very professional, escorted us to the room and explained facilities one by one, all high tech. This is one of the best hotel I've been to, I will definately come back again. Highly recommend!!

Disappointing

Posted Nov 1, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: The staff were incredible, they even have a person opening the door constantly...the porters were amazing.
Cons: As above
Location: Casino nearby and reasonable walking distance to the city, just over the bridge.
To be honest, I wanted to fill in the card when I left, but felt it was probably pointless. Where to start: 1. The breakfast was terrible...not a western buffet at all. All asian food and to be honest, not our usual 5 star buffet at all. Couldn't eat most of it. 2. The mirror in the room had such bad lighting I had to do my makeup sitting near the window with a tiny mirror....very bad. 3. The room light switches were very confusing. 4. The shower took ages to heat up. In general not worth over $500 per night sorry but we won't be going back there. As for location, perfect for what we needed.

Convenient & Classy

Excellent service from concierges from time of arrival. All staff very welcoming. Room and bed very comfortable. Would prefer light switches instead of remote control. Close to everything in a very historical part of Sydney. Loved it! Will stay again
