Very Good8.0
A little soulless, nice but no boutique feel
A good hotel but not outstanding & didn’t feel 5 star. Service welcoming if a little overly intrusive; rooms big & comfy, bathroom area badly designed - sink area has no storage or space, no bath and no vanity area; one bar downstairs that was closed before 11 on one night; pool bar with no stock and 20 minutes to get a drink; being told that “you should have been here at the weekend” as our rooftop bar was open (but isn’t now) was rather irritating too. Nice but no boutique feel to it, an extension of the Asian casino it is part of. More communal areas would help.

Best hotel ever
This is actually the best hotel I have ever stayed at. I was blown away by the service (helpfullness and friendliness of staff), the facilities available, cleanliness, design, and even the comfort of the bed was unbelievably incredible. I will definitely stay here again next time I come to Sydney.

The Darling at the Star, Pyrmont, Australia
Very Bad , could not park even though paying for Valet Parking... when finally got my car parked by another hotel ... then got subjected to harrasement by Security when just trying to go into foyer and up in lift... ALL BECAUSE THERE WAS AN EVENT BEING HELD AND THE EVENT TOOK PRIORITY OVER THE HOTEL GUESTS ... unable to park or have your car valet parked even though this is what service you had paid for, for 5 hours in the middle of the afternoon to night and then attacked and questioned when attempting to go up to your room whilst waiting for the lift... 3 x large men in black suites within an inch of you with a Large red batton thing in their hand standing over you and not allowing you to acces the lift... NEVER NEVER NEVER will I stay again I felt so unsafe and upset after this stay... PTSD
