We got off a 6am flight and arrived at the apartments by 8am even though the official check in time stated on the booking was 2pm. How grateful and relieved we were when they gave us keys to the 1-bedroom apartment right away. And how delighted we were to discover how spacious the apartment was.
A large, fully equipped kitchen meant that we saved quite a bit of money on meals over the 3 days we were there, being able to prepare our own breakfasts and dinners. And after each meal, there's the dishwasher! The dining table seats four and there's an extra table on the outdoor deck for four more. However, the deck faces the expressway so dining on the deck could be a rather noisy affair. That said, double layered windows meant the apartment was quiet at any time of day.
The only area that could have done with more space was the bedroom. Having a king sized bed was a treat, but we had to walk sideways to get around the room especially since another TV and console unit was located in the bedroom.
We tried taking the bus from the apartment to Sydney and eventually decided to rent a car instead since we wanted to visit several locations every day. Parking at the apartment's basement carpark is $25/day.
This was a good landing pad for our first time to Sydney. Free internet connection, cable TV, washer and dryer facilities within the apartment and reasonable rates certainly rank high in my books.
