I stayed in an apartment
Location: Easy to reach. For AUD15, the Airport shuttle drops you right across the hotel. We got picked up by the same chap (he had given us his business card) for the same price on our way back to the airport. Darling harbour is a 20 minute walk; two convenience stores almost adjacent to it; many Thai food eateries and bars within 15 minutes of walking distance; World Square mall also very close by.
Room: It was a one room apartment—one bedroom plus one living room sort of place—sofa, dining table, TV, writing desk, and a fully equipped kitchenette complete with gas stove, microwave and baking oven, double door fridge, dishwasher, and any number of utensils and crockery, another small room with washing machine. Very roomy and well lit. And not to forget the balcony with a table and two chairs to soak in the warm Sydney sun. But no facility to lock the room from inside.
Facilities: All weather indoor pool and a spa and a well equipped gym were real add ons. Housekeeping was good at times and not so good on some days. Shower taps were too tight to close properly. But that was a small inconvenience. Reception was very receptive, but seemed a bit stingy with their smiles and greetings. Only if there was free internet, this place would have been heaven on earth. But still a great value for money.More
