This was about the 6th or 7th time we have stayed at the Novotel Sydney Central and by far the worst stay that we have experienced. The standard from both Hotel and Restaurant has dropped significantly and what drew us to staying at the Novotel Sydney Central has now been eroded.

It was a trip to Sydney for some medical treatment and so it was tough going, but returning each night to the Novotel felt like coming home. It was comfortable, clean and the staff made us feel so welcomed. The location was perfect - close to Central Train Station, and Chinatown. The room was super comfortable with everything you could...

Stayed here for 3 nights with my wife and 2 kids. Really nice hotel with great staff. Lots of little easter eggs on offer so the kids give this place a big thumbs up. Buffet breakfast was top notch. Great central location.

Our family has stayed in this hotel through the years from when it was still known as Carlton Crest, mainly due to the size of its rooms where 2 QS beds comfortably sit, to its handy location to Chinatown, Darling Harbour, Paddys, Central station, George St, etc. Has heaps of parking with really cheap rates. Buffet breakfast is great to...

Went to Sydney for a quick visit and decided to stay at Novotel, I mean what could go wrong with Novotel right? Location was great, room was excellent, check in was good. Other staff members we have came across with at the front desk were not very friendly. I especially have to mention our check-out experience, perhaps she was in...

Just next to China Town, it's easy to find somewhere to eat. The room was very comfortable. We had a super good sleep. The breakfast was also good. The fresh fruit juice is the highlight. As I booked using hotel promotion, it was worth to stay.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
