The Medina Executive Sydney Central was a great place to stay. We just got back from staying 8 nights there. Since we were staying a week we wanted something more than a hotel. We had three of us, one couple and one single. We got a 2 bedroom apartment. We were on the first floor in room 7. I was worried being on the first floor and at a major traffic center, but it was actually very quiet. Never heard street noise except maybe sirens occasionally.
Our flight like most got in early in the morning. The medina allowed us to drop off our bags and offered to call us on a local cell phone number if the room became available before check-in time. We stopped back in just to get something out of luggage (change into shorts). And while I was changing in the storage closet, the nice lady at the front desk said our room was ready, a few hours earlier than check-in. They were real nice and accomodating.
The room was spacious enough. Basic clean kitchen open to small dining table/room and living space. Nice high ceilings. Kitchen had all the basics. We made dinner and a few breakfasts there and didn't need anything really, except salt, pepper and paper towels.
There were two bedrooms, one with a window and own bathroom. The second bedroom was on the inside of the building/room and had large sliding frosted doors. Private enough and far from other room, but different from a regular room. It had a queen bed. The bathroom was outside the room, but had a washer/dryer which was a huge plus.
The furnishing and such were nice enough, the beds comfortable. Nothing over luxurious, but what we needed. The room felt stuffy, but I didn't know how to adjust the thermostat. They came and showed me how to adjust and got us two fans. I only wish the windows opened up.
The location turned out to be great. Next to the train stations. Lots of buses and taxis. You can get to and walk to lot of things. Easy access to a lot, especially if you like walking. I wasn't sure of the location when I booked, but it turned out perfect for all the things and places we went.
They has a nice pool/hot tub area, though we did not use it. But it looked nice with lots of plants and stuff. I think a sauna too.
Front desk was always helpful and friendly. Gave some advise, made a few reservations. Generally nice people. It was almost like saying hi to your neighbors everyday when you passed through the lobby.
With the exchange rate we thought the place was a good value. We had three of us and got a two bedroom apartment, and basically paid what we might for a nice hotel. So it was a good value for us.
Overall I was very pleased with the Medina and would stay here again. Sydney was great too.
