couple

Our stay was quiet pleasant The room was rather smaller than expected and disappointed that we couldn't have a room with a view of the harbour seeing we had booked and paid for the room a couple of months prior to arriving. Thought the cost of Wi Fi to be excessive The staff could not be faulted from the desk people through to the cleaners But really the place is looking somewhat "tatty".Carpet in front of the lifts on floor 8 was threadbare

Fantastic location

Ibis re- located us to Novotel next door , loved the hotel, right on Darling Harbour which is very resort like. Would have liked a bigger bed but other than that everything was great.

Sydney short stay

After having been to the sights around Circular Quay by catching the ferry to Darling Habour the Ibis was then located ideally for everything else my daughter & I wanted to do in Sydney - Madame Tussauds, Aquarium, Sydney Tower. It was nice to be able to walk easily to these places and enjoy the waterfront atmosphere. The rooms aren't roomy and fancy but nice for the price paid and we had all we required.

Location, Location, Location

We chose the Ibis Hotel at Darling Harbour for its location .... our room had a view across Darling Harbour to the city and being on the 10th floor we had a 'birds eye' view of the Saturday night fireworks. Reception staff were very helpful and we really appreciated the welcoming glass of champers on Saturday afternoon. Our room was serviced each day with fresh towels and toiletries. Although it didn't really disturb us - the blinds are not fully block out and you are able to enjoy the city lights whilst drifting off to sleep. Next time we visit Sydney we will definitely stay here again.

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
