Stayed here for a week recently. Extremely handy location. Warm welcome from Helen upon arrival who showed us our room and ensured heating was on for our arrival. Very spacious two bedroom two bathroom apartment which has been recently renovated. Main bedroom has large king bed, ample built in cupboards and ensuite bathroom. A second sliding door to the outside has been added to cut out traffic noise and this has been very successful. Second bedroom has two single beds with ample cupboards. Great kitchen with modern stainless steel appliances and reasonably well equipped. Cleverly hidden laundry area in hallway with washing machine and dryer. Spacious lounge and dining area and balcony. Great rooftop BBQ area with mini golf green and great views.
This location is perfect for exploring the whole of Sydney city area. Within a short distance are the Sydney Fish Market, Harbourside Shopping Centre, Darling Harbour, Cockle Bay Wharf, the Powerhouse Museum, the Maritime Museum, Star City Casino, Pyrmont Bridge, restaurants, cafés and the Pyrmont Ferry Terminal which gives you access to the wonderful Sydney Harbour. We walked to the city, Chinatown, Paddy's Markets, Circular Quay, Botanical Gardens, Pitt Street Mall. We walked to one of the city's railway stations and caught a train to Bondi Junction for shopping and on another visit caught the train/bus connection to Bondi Beach. We caught the ferry at Pyrmont around to Circular Quay and then the big ferry over to Manly for a relaxing day of exploring. We also caught the ferry around to circular quay and then the ferry to Taronga Park Zoo. We usually walked home from Circular Quay through the city streets. Visit the Rocks Markets on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for a great variety of merchandise with many dining options, including the German Beer House the Lowenbrau where we had a beer and a pretzel. I love visiting Sydney city and these apartments provide a perfect base for walking to many parts of Sydney or access to public transport if you are unable to walk distances.
