booked the twin room only to wake up the next day with itchy skin, my friend & i had a bunch of bite marks on our legs and arms. though the management didn't make any fuss of it and just changed our room and gave us a wayyy bigger room, and most importantly, no bed bugs; plus some cream for the itchiness, so all was good.
location is superb. it's practically at the train station and the bus stop is literally at ur door. can't really hear the traffic down below so no problem with noise.
Having only 3 nights in Sydney we needed somewhere comfortable and close to the centre. The Mercure did not disappoint and provided us with a great base to explore the city. After travelling for over 24 hours from the UK, my wife and I received a welcome surprise to find our room had two double beds to stretch out on - fantastic! We didn’t eat or drink in the hotel as there are a lot of cafés, restaurants and bars just outside, and if you wish to get further afield into the city there are plenty of public transport options running day and night. Our only regret was not having a longer stay in this beautiful city and lovely hotel.
Thank you for your lovely feedback. We also wish you stayed longer! I am glad you enjoyed the extra room to spread out.
We hope you visit us at the Mercure Sydney again soon
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
