We stayed one night at the Sydney Mercure as a stop-over for our overseas holiday at the end of July 2014. The Mercure is conveniently located within walking distance of Central (bus) Station – even with a few bags of luggage, although the walk was mainly uphill. Access to the Central (train) station is even better (you couldn't get any closer!).
The service was very good – the staff seem genuinely friendly, not like the forced 5-star politeness I have encountered elsewhere. We stayed in the cheapest (Standard) room which was on the small side but definitely sufficient for our needs. One downside of the room was that it was very dark. There was no central light and we had to turn on every single light we could find to do our final re-pack for our flight the next day.
We went to the restaurant in the hotel for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The choice of food was pretty good and the prices reasonable. The food was not super quick but we weren’t in a hurry so that was fine with us.
The concierge was very helpful with the few questions we had for him.
We were able to easily check-out the night before, which was very handy so we could head off to the airport in the morning without delay. I highly recommend doing that if you don’t plan on using the minibar the night before you leave.
Overall we found it a pleasant start to our holiday and would come back again.
Thank you for your feedback. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Mercure Sydney and your meal at our Four Elements restaurant.
We hope you had a pleasant trip and hope to be your base next time you travel
Stayed in a Deluxe room.
The room was a decent size and comfortable. It had good curtains to block the light. However, the aircon was very loud. If you turned it off, the room got very warm .. even overnight.
Breakfast was disappointing. You could order eggs but the poached eggs I requested were way overcooked. I asked for runny yolks the next day but the eggs were still overcooked with a solid yolk.
Like other Mercures I have stayed at, this one has dark carpets with fairly bright lights in the corridors. That results in any dirt or anything on the carpet reflecting; making the corridors seem dirtier than they really are. If they want to persist with this look, the carpet needs to be spotlessly clean.
Easy access to transport is why you would stay here. Trains across the road, and the light rail to the Star only a couple of minutes away.
Overall, I rate it about 3.5
