Walk to Darling Harbour and nice restaurants in the neighborhood just around the corner. Late check in was easy. We did enjoy the property and because of location I would recommend it. We have stayed in many places around the world through similar services so I always think that I should give honest feedback especially when an easy fix could make the place a bit better. These are not reasons not to stay here - just a few thoughts. Main bath could use new taps. Very hard to turn on and off with wet hands due to design. Need more chairs for the dining table (only 2 provided) and needs a couple of tables in the lounge. Nowhere to put a drink when sitting in the lounge. We used a bench as a table that I think was meant to serve as extra seating for the dining table but had to move it between the two spaces each time. Face cloths would be nice. The second bedroom night table lamp doesn't work on one side - just a bulb I think. I would reorient the bed in that room as the noise from the street is loud and it's a bit drafty with the head of the bed being directly up against the large window. Only one set of keys was available. We were two couples wanting to do some separate activities and having only one set of keys was inconvenient. We would stay again if some of these were remedied but also really good value for location. Questions we had were answered quickly thoughout out stay by host.
