Reviewed 7 August 2014

We stayed Friday & Saturday nights and from the moment we arrived until our departure, the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, even offering an umbrella when it was raining. The apartment was perfect with everything you could want including extra blankets, towels, washing powder & even an ashtray. The studio apartment was perfect for what we required, with a nice balcony and there was no traffic noise. It is very central to everything with a shopping centre close by and also a great bakery & eateries. We had a continental breakfast included in our price and there was a good variety of choices to satisfy us.The hot chocolate & cookies were a very nice welcoming gift. We will stay here in furture when in Sydney, maybe in a one bedroom only for a little extra room. Don't foreget to check out the roof, with pool, gym BBQ & lots of views and seating.

Room Tip: Higher floors have no traffic noise.

Thanks for your review!

Fantastic to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! It's great to hear our staff going out of their way for our guests, and your thanks will be passed on! All our apartments are fully self contained and it's great to hear you found this perfect for your stay. Our hot chocolate and brownie Winter Warmer's Package is certainly a nice treat to arrive to.

Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you the next time you're in Sydney!

Stayed Saturday to Friday ,was absolute value for money ,location could not be faulted ,taxi from airport to hotel was reasonable saved dragging our bags on to a train & to hotel for not much cheaper. Explored locale & city on foot for weekend ,catching train back from city to Redfern Station, cheap easy way back to Hotel. Then picked up rental car on the Monday which was also a easy walk to the Mercure building ,free secure parking a definite bonus. Convenience & bottle stores 2mins walk away ,or supermarket & more a 5min walk away. We had studio apartment 316 & it met all our needs,so all in all hotel, staff, locale, price were great. The only very minor minus was the hotels in room info book seemed to have pages missing, info on things like where the garbage goes ,how to get to the top floor ,how parking works ,when & what housekeeping would be done but they were all things that were easily found out Sadly was wrong time of year to utilise 4th floor though, would definitely stay again.

We're glad we could tick all your boxes! It's great to hear you enjoyed your near week long stay with us, and were able to utilise the nearby supermarket and shops. Sorry to hear your compendium was missing pages - we will definitely have that replaced!

Stayed two nights, our daughter and partner stayed one night. Staff assisted us by placing them near our room, which made it so much easier. Quiet location, great size rooms, comfortable bed. Clean combined bathroom/ laundry. We found the staff very helpful and obliging. Secure parking, nice also to have a kitchenette , although no microwave- which wasnt a problem for us. Bakery close by is great. There are also plenty of take aways and a Woolies supermarket, close by ( walking distance)on the old Tooths site. Pool and bbq area on the roof was clean, as it was June , we didnt utilise.Would highly recommend.

Hard to rate with so many plus and minus attributes. Parking in a bonus, a rare commodity in Sydney. The staff are incredibly kind and welcoming. The price is fabulous. But, oh, the cooking allowed in the apartments fills the hallways and seeps into others apartments were not mama's home cooking comfort smells. It was nauseating fish sauce or smelly socks brewing. We had to open all windows and balcony doors on a cold evening. The staff leave at 7pm -only off site number to call. The apartments are very basic bordering on the dull side. Though the hot chocolate and complimentary brownies do light up the room. To sum up: ok for short term stays if price and parking are your main objectives.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet room

Thank you for sharing your recent experience at Waldorf Sydney South.

We are happy to hear the staff were kind and welcoming - we take customer service seriously and are always thrilled to hear about our guest experiences.

We do apologise for the cooking smells from other apartments, we have not heard often that other guests cooking seeps into other apartments. We will be looking into this further.

Happy to hear our Winter Warmers hot chocolate and brownies package lightened up your stay. There's not much that beats a hot chocolate in winter!

Thanks again, and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

My 17yo daughter and I stayed in a 1 bed apartment for 3 nights. Great location between Redfern & Central stations, a 15min walk to Sydney Uni and 10min to UTS or 25 min walk to Town Hall/city central (we did plenty of walking!) There is also free carparking under the building, which is a huge plus for Sydney accommodation. We arrived early and while my daughter went off to Uni, I worked in the foyer using the Tomizone wifi until our room was available. We took the week wifi package for $40 which worked fine, although unfortunately only valid for 1 device.

Kitchen is well equipped, not that we used it for more than breakfast and snacks as there are many good options around for eating out. There is also complementary continental breakfast available downstairs, but we didn’t try it. The new Central Park complex is only 5min away, great Woolworths for stocking up and also many eating/shopping options. Another 10mins onto Broadway shopping complex with its mass of shops and cinemas. Also a lovely bakery in the same block and the fabulous Thai Tha Hai just down Cleveland Street. Such a bonus to also have our own washer and dryer (complete with 2 complementary sachets of washing powder).

Huge bed in the separate bedroom was comfy, but unfortunately couldn’t say the same for the sofa bed in the living room. My daughter leant on it as we were making it up and the mattress was so thin she rammed her knee cap into a bar underneath. Luckily there were ice cubes in the freezer, so we could quickly ice it to minimise the damage! We re-made the bed to put a spare light quilt under the sheets to give her a fraction more padding, but she still only slept by curling into and maintaining a position in between 2 bars through the night. She survived though, but it’s really more suitable for young children.

The front staff are all very friendly and welcoming, they made us feel at home and nothing was too much bother. Any issues we had (missing coathangers, TV not working) were quickly sorted out. I’d certainly recommend it as a great value spot for Sydney, handy to transport and a short walk from the city.

We'd like to apologise about the sofa bed - this has been noted and we will investigate.

Your comments about our friendly staff will be passed along - they're always happy to help when they can and explain about the local area too!

The one bedroom apartment that my family of four stayed in for four days was certainly value for money for the various reasons:
-The apartment was well-equipped with a big refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave oven and dishwasher.
-There was a washing machine and also a separate dryer in the toilet. Packets of detergent were provided. (Thank you. That was very thoughtful of the management)
-Sufficient bedding, linens and towels supplied. (Towels were changed every 2 days)
-Mattresses were comfortable, with extra pillows provided.
-Whole place was well maintained.
-Breakfast was simple but sufficient. (More variety would have been appreciated though)
-The free parking was a bonus.
-Requests were attended to immediately.
-There was a safe provided.
-Trash was collected every two days.
-There was a gym that we had no time to use at all, and a rooftop pool as well.
-Conveniently located near Redfern Station and Central Station.
-Within walking distance to Central where many eateries and Woolworths are located. Great for eating out or simply buying ingredients to cook in the apartment.
In a nutshell, a great place to stay.
