Got upgraded to the Novotel next door upon check in at the Ibis

With my ratings, i just selected the middle, as I had originally booked the Ibis and upon check in was told I had been upgraded and to go next door to the sister hotel - Novotel. So this is not a review for Ibis and there is no way of changing the hotel, but I can say Ibis is very central to Darling Harbour

Comfy bed!

One of the most comfortable beds i have ever slept in! The rooms are tiny, particulalry the bathroom, but adequate if you are only using it as a place to sleep - you wouldn't want to spend too much time in it otherwise

Handy location

I was upgraded to the 10th floor with stunning views over the harbour. This truly was the highlight of my stay at Ibis with a free fireworks display on Saturday night to boot. I was very well looked after by all the helpful staff on reception who assisted me with checking in, and directions on local art galleries. Great in-house breakfast too. My room was lovely and clean and tidy. Thanks for a great stay, I will be back.

Darling Harbour has a lot of cheaper shops now, but the centre of Sydney is still a handy 5 - 10 minute walk.

Wonderful stay

We only stayed one night at the Ibis so that we could see Strictly Ballroom. The room was great and the view over Darling Harbour was magnificent. Really value for money.

3 DAY BREAK

Ideal location overlooking Darling Harbour .Readily accessible by light rail from Central Station following arrival at Sydney Airport Excellent view of the VIVID fireworks display and light show from our room window. Prompt service at check in/checkout and the staff were courteous in the breakfast area each morning. The selection of food was fresh, hot and the reasonably comprehensive.
