Unsatisfied return stay

Unhappy with the presentation of unit. A half full bottle of wine was left in the bar fridge, hair in bathroom and toiletries were not replaced when serviced. Shower recess was tiny, bed was old, hard and lumpy, pillows not much better. Great location however.

Quite the disappointment

I stayed here on a business trip, I booked the hotel myself as I like to stay close the Darling Harbour. The hotel itself is very difficult to find with only one way street entrance, it took me an hour to actually find this hotel & its car park. The checkin process was not very professional from staff and no customer service was really offered, not even a smile. I booked the executive king room, upon walking in it was a standard studio. I looked at my hotel confirmation for about 30mins until the reception called to ask about my room and I told them that i think it got the wrong room. Eventually i was moved into the right room however there was a very loud noise coming from the toilet and this made it very difficult to fall asleep & the bed was not comfy at all. The area outside the hotel is like a lane way and very very dirty and it SMELLS! Good points - walking distance to darling harbour with beautiful restaurants & cafes close by. All in all, I will never book this place again.

wouldn't stay again

I wouldn't stay at these apartments again. Male front desk staff not helpful, my room smelt like stale cigarette although it was a non smoking room. Shower spurted water everywhere, once it actually warmed up, very slow to get hot water. Bed extremely uncomfortable and i don't know what they thought a pillow was but that definitely wasn't it. Tried to charge me for an extra night as they messed up the rooms and checked out the wrong room early, cut off access to wifi a day early.

Great value

Booked for Sunday 7th June with long weekend and Vivid festival. For a peak night, was exceptional value, and located right on edge of China Town and few minutes walk from Darling Harbour. Good size room with sofa bed, very clean and modern. Would stay again due to great value compared to other Sydney hotels.

I'll be back!!

This is easily the best value for money room I've stayed in, in the last three years. The room was HUGE, clean and stylish. Staff were efficient, polite and friendly. As we use public transport, the walk from Central was easily manageable. There was an abundance of eateries right outside the door (Chinatown) and other attractions were close by (Paddy's Markets, Darling Harbour etc etc). I am so impressed! I'll be booking this hotel again without hesitation.

Experience in Sydney

The location of the apartment is fantastic - from 10mins to Darling Harbour to 30mins to Circular Quay by foot. Step out of the apartments and have the wonderful aromas filling the air from Asian, Mexican, Thai, Italian, coffee! Shopping in the city centre is 10mins away. The rooms are clean and the staff are so helpful. So if you're after an experience to shimmy your time in Sydney - APX Apartments is the place to lay your weary head. Enjoy Peeps!

EXCELLENT CENTRAL LOCATION

I stayed in these apartments for 3 nights in July. They are very centrally located and good for getting around the city. The self-catering facilities would be good for those staying longer or on a tight budget. The staff at the front desk were always helpful and friendly and the room was large and clean. Recommended!
