Novotel Sydney Central
3 out of 5

Location is perfect for us as we didn't hire a car, we can walk to Chinatown's restaurants and public transports which is an advantage. Staff there are also very very friendly and helpful. But in general this hotel is quite old - carpet, basin, toilet ... these sort of things are really old and need to be updated. They don't just look dirty, they are hard to use as well ( for example the taps are always dripping, the carpet smells). I'd give it a 3 out of 5.

Service is good. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Near areas of interest esp. the Paddy's Market though we were not able to visit that because of our hectic sched. The room is big enough for a family of four and bed is comfortable. And the water on the pool is warm enough for my kids to go swimming at half past 9 pm.....

We chose this hotel because of its convenient location. Easy to reach Darling Harbour or the Powerhouse Museum on foot. The staff were absolutely friendly and helpful. The room service was outstanding, very clean linen and towels. Unfortunately the carpet was absolutely horrible and the bathroom was outdated. With a renovated bathroom and new carpet I would give this hotel 5 stars.

Staff were nice - hotel was quite OK but to have absolutley no hot water at 8.30 in the morning is unforgivable

This is an excellent hotel to stay at for business and pleasure. The staff are so frIendly nothing is to much trouble. I am sure I got a free upgrade the room was large and modern. I will continue to stay there now when I am in Sydney. So close to every event and tourist spots. Highly recommended.

A great location a couple of minutes walk from the central railway station, so ideal if you need to be in the CBD. The room was large and spacious. Luggage storage is available on the day of check-in and check-out. The restaurant was okay too. I think they were short-staffed one morning, as the breakfast buffet wasn't re-stocked fast enough whereas it wasn't a problem any other day. The only thing which is a bit disappointing is the credit card surcharge whan paying for incidentals charged to your room account, as it's the only sensible option for a foreigner when the bill could be several hundred dollars if you have taken breakfast and dinner for a few days.

I always stay at Citigate Sydney. I find it convenient and central to all my needs, and I don't have to worry about parking with the 24 hour secured parking lot attached to the hotel. The staff are more than helpful, friendly and courteous and nothing is a bother. Only fault I can think of is there could be more sugar for coffee, but I am sure that if I were to run out, all I would have to do is phone down to reception and it would be provided. The meals at the restaurant are also exceptional.

Nice room with all facilities. Bathroom was clean but looking very 80's with the grey tiles and the repainted sink and bath. Comfortable bed and very clean. Great location for activities south of the city.

I always stay at the Citigate Central Sydney. I find it convenient to all facilities I need in Sydney. I also find the staff are polite go out of their way to assist whenever needed. The facilities at the hotel also meet my needs, and the prices are very reasonable.

I've booked for the king room with Cityview. Hotel comes with free gym and pool entry. Room is very spacious. Only thing is, make sure to bring your own toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream, shaver and moisturiser as they don't provide those items. Other than those, toiletries, towels, shampoo, conditioner and soap are all there.

Excellent location - close to Chinatown, Central railway station. Friendly & helpful staff who kept their cool even when busloads of guests were arriving, attractive room with quality bedding & the bathroom had a bath (rare). Two problems - not enough lifts for size of hotel, the large number of rooms & the rapid turnover of guests, so one often had to wait some time. Also the 'swimming pool', whilst well-located outdoors on the 8th floor, is only abt 5 metres long (enough for a dip but not a swim).

Facilities unfortunately starting to "show its age", in particular the bath area with cracked tiles, the carpet showing several large stains, the ranch slider to the small balcony very hard to close/lock (handle and mechanism loose), and limited tv reception (sky). This is our 7th stay at these premises, (1st with a balcony which we were looking forward to), but were dissapointed with "outlook".....all we saw was construction work in all directions from the rear of the hotel?) Room service however was excellent, as usual.

The rooms were not as nice as I expected but it was still very comfortable. The staff were very nice and helpful and accommodated to our requirements. The room was left fairly clean. It was very close to the convention center (approx 10 min walk) which is what we were after but not so close to the city center however the free CBD bus which was a 10 min walk took us into the city (very easy to catch) I would not pay full price to stay at this hotel but definitely if you find a good deal it is worth it. There was no residue smell of cigarettes which was a really nice change. Overall we enjoyed our stay and if we needed to go to the convention center again we would stay at the Citigate.
