“Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

A location that is close to Darling Harbour as well as the city shopping. Very clean and tidy. I will definately stay again. We had a studio apartment that contained everything we required. The apartment was an easy walk to Darling Harbour

Room Tip: Great spot and central to everywhere

I have always enjoyed staying at the Meriton, especially the one on Kent Street, because it's so centralised to everything and next to George Street, which is the main street in the city. Booking online was easy as I booked the room on the same day I had checked in. I felt relaxed and really needed to unwind after a long weekend and had work the following day. The room was spacious and the facilities were great and the King Size bed was so comfortable, that I slept so easily. I checked out early the next day by completing the early check out envelope, which is so convenient, because I would rather just return the key cards and check out straight away instead of waiting in line and physically returning the key cards to the staff members. I would always want to stay at the Mertion.

We have stayed at meriton twice now in the basic studio apartments and we find for sydney the price is quite reasonable and although you don't get your hotel perks like room service, that's the whole point! We still get daily servicing, a comfy bed and a room that's big enough for sitting around watching tv and cooking dinner etc and we never felt cramped in there.

One of the main things we love is the kitchen and laundry, the kitchen is basic but has a convection oven/microwave and a 2 pot stove top, the full size fridge is awesome if your staying a few nights as both Coles and Woolies are both just around the corner so you can keep your fav items close by, gives you the comfort of home without the mini bar price tags!

The washer and dryer was great and comes with free washing liquid!

Location is great, nothing is that far away and with world square just around the corner and china town a few blocks away it's made for a great place to start and end your day from.

On our first stay we were a little lost about how far everything was away but get google maps when your there, it's really quite simple.

Oh and another great perk is free 1gb wifi per day!

In summary we love meriton kent st and will stay there again next time were in town, everything from that smell in the lobby (you'll know what I mean when you get there), to the excellent location, friendly staff and reasonable prices will keep us coming back!

Definitely 5 star apartments in my mind when compared to other 5 star we have stayed at this was a clear winner!

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a balcony although you may not get it, if you do it's really nice to chill...

We stayed overnight 23rd August this year enroute Auckland and stayed on the 50th floor. Loved the view, room was spotless, layout and size was excellent including the enclosed balcony with plenty of room and one of the best views we could get of Darling Harbour. Service at check in and check out was excellent. Great position, we only arrived around 8pm but walked across the road to the pub and were enjoying drinks and one of the best steaks I have had by 9.00pm (even after going up to our rooom for a freshen up!). We have stayed in Sydney City/Darling Harbour area on visits for years now and are definately keen to stay here again but for a bit longer as they also have washing machine and dryer with a reasonable kitchen (plenty places to eat out anyway). Cannot rate this propert highly enough!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a "Sky View" room.

Location is very central in Sydney. Rooms on the Darling Harbour side have a great view and good afternoon sun. Rooms are very spacious we had a two bedroom apartment with two bathrooms, nice lounge, full kitchen and a very big sunny outside deck. Weekend room servicing was very poor and so late in the day. On the Sunday we got sick of waiting and just got replacement towels which was very disappointing. Ceiling mirror in master bedroom is very tacky and does not befit this standard of accommodation.

Room Tip: choose Darling Harbour side

Dear WildcatNZ,

We appreciate you taking the time to provide us and the travel community with feedback after your recent stay. We highly regard all guest feedback as it’s a valuable tool which not only allows us to evaluate ourselves but also aids the on-line travel community in finding the most suitable place to stay while travelling.

I am sorry to hear about the delay with Housekeeping servicing over the weekend. Generally daily Housekeeping services are completed between 10am and 4pm. For your convenience, you are more than welcome to pre-arrange and request a specific servicing time at reception and Housekeeping will do all they can to complete the servicing as close as possible to the requested time.

WildcatNZ, thank you once again for your feedback. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Meriton Serviced Apartments Kent Street again on you next return from NZ!

Kind Regards,
