Customer Reviews

Partnership with



This was a short business trip for me and i looked for a well priced hotel close to the ICC The room was dated, the blind wasnt even in the track and looked dirty, the fridge was noisy The foyer was nice and the staff were friendly



The Ibis is situated right on the harbour in a great location a short walking distance to the centre of Sydney. Professional staff, in house dining and a cosy suite made the stay enjoyable. Great for a short business trip or a couples weekend away



We are a bit disappointed this time about the service. Being an Accor member, each time when we check in, we will have welcome drink. We booked 2 rooms with 4 people staying this time. They only gave 2 welcome drink. When I asked them why, they said because the second room checked in the second day, there is no welcome drink. It's a bit ridiculous. The mattress is also too soft. But the buffet breakfast is good in value.



Great service great location - everything I needed while attending a conference nearby. Would certainly recommend the Ibis to anyone looking for accommodation that meets all the requirements but is not expensive



I have stayed at the Ibis many times, being a member of the Accor club I usually get an upgrade but the hotel was very, very busy with two exhibitions on in the new Centre. But my room was clean & comfortable & had everything I needed. The hotel location is good for the Exhibition Centre and also the food hall at Darling Harbour. Staff are always friendly & helpful, I am one of those people who never seem to get the swipe card for the door the right way up but a lovely lady sorted me out!!!!! Breakfast as always, very good value and plenty of choice

This is the second time we have stayed I think that speakers for itself.I am currently trying to organise a 70th if it comes off we will stay there again.Rooms a bit small but ok for us.The deal I organised did not have breakfast but on arrival breakfast was included(a bonus)



Rooms were clean and suitable and bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was average and over crowded. The coffee left a lot to be desired and better and cheaper coffee and breakfast is available at nearby cafes. Overall I would recomend



Had a great time ibis darling harbour absolutely fantastic could not have asked for a better spot and better view from our room. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and nothing was a problem to them



No water, no proper beds, rooms are very small and not tidy.. Never again and not worth, location is OK but not service. So please re think before you book this hotel, you have to buy everything included water and FYI you can only get sparkling water. I am disappointed



clean room,,good breakfast, handy spot, moe 3.5 or 4 star than 3 ,good atmosphere down in foya, staff very helpful.darling harbour great spot to stay.will stay there again and be looking for deals coming up



The room is clean, and the bed is comfortable for sleep. and I have booked a room facing the harbour, so I can take a good view of the vivid Sydney Darling Harbour. And most of all, the hotel is at a very convenient transport place.



Loved it! Ideally located! Attentive staff and good facilities! We were down for the Sydney Writers' Festival which was an easy, flat walk each day. While the room was small it had everything that you needed especially as we only required it for sleeping!



The staff are wonderful but the Hotel is getting tired. Very Disappointed with the Accor Membership manager - totally not customer focus and a bully. Peter at reception out standing. Great location to the Novotel for meals and Darling Harbour

Was upgraded to a harbour view, great. Enjoyed the quick check in and checkout the Accor member card allows. Always clean and peasant rooms. Front counter staff great! The breakfast had a good array. Close to many attractions.

Room was clean but small. Ok for a short visit. Food on offer was good and the afternoon bar Happy Hour was a welcome event. Easy walk to some very good destinations and the shopping in Sydney. Reccomend for short stays.



Printed email received from Ibis with ref number, name etc and handed to front desk agent on arrival. Despite this, young woman at front desk could not find us on the system. After a very long time searching, she had to consult her manager. Eventually checked us in and indignantly asked 'but why does it say that for your name?' Explained that was our SURNAME - she had been trying to find us under my husband's first name e.g. 'Mr Jack Donaldson' she was looking for Jack instead of Donaldson on the system. How could someone be so untrained? Especially with all the information in front of her. Room fine, bed very comfortable, cleaning staff excellent, breakfast good. Will continue staying here in spite of incompetent staff, after all that was just a one-off.

Very close to darling harbour (only 2 mnts walk), good view from the room (if you choose harbour view), near light trail for easier transportation, clean room with big television (40") and bluetooth speaker



Great hotel in a great location, Staff always helpful, This visit we had room with a view of city and harbor breathtaking. Easy walk to main shopping area of Sydney, Star Casino, Restaurants/Bars and attractions. Good hotel for couples and families.



We recently stayed one night because we were attending a concert at ICC. The location is awesome for exploring Sydney. Close to restaurants. Our room was clean though a little on the tiny side but that was ok as we were only there for the night. We had the buffet breakfast which had everything imaginable. Loved the pancake maker.



Check-in was hassle free, parking was organised and the room was clean, small. The bathroom was adequate but could be updated in the near future. Wish TV's were at eye level and not halfway to the ceiling giving severe neck-ache! Breakfast was buffet style and of very good standard, although on one day the table clearing and cleaning was slow. The evening bar service was excellent. Overall, a good experience at a reasonable price. Can be recommended.
