“Vibrant location and comfortable stay”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

My family with 3 teenaged girls stayed here for 4 nights. The apartment was clean and spacious. Only thing is that its double beds are joint of 2 single beds which may affect sleep of some guests. Kitchen was well equiped and my husband cooked us a sumptuous dinner though there are plenty of good eateries around. Try Madang Korean Restaurant at Pitt Street and you will never regret it. We also visited twice the Hurricane Grill at Bondi and Pancakes on the Rocks. China Town and Darling Harbour were just nearby the apartment, and we even walked back from the Harbour Bridge, with shopping and a few attractions along the way. Parking was easy and hotel staff were helpful. We walked to Hertz Car Rental to pick up our car to explore the suburbs. Overall a wonderful stay and we will be back again.

My husband and I had stayed at the Meriton on Campbell St a few weeks ago, so we decided to try the Kent St location.

I have nothing but good things to say about our stay at Kent St. My husband and I checked in quite late but still managed to get a room on one of the higher levels (level 53 to be exact). To our surprise, when we walked into our room, we had a magnificent view of Darling Harbour!

The Studio apartment was so spacious and so immaculately clean. It was perfect for my husband and I. What I found at Kent St was that the water pressure from the shower was better than the apartments at Campbell Street.

We love staying at the Meriton as it is our home away from home. It is within walking distance from everything (Town Hall train station, bus stop, Paddys Market, Capitol Theatre, Darling Harbour, wide variety of places to eat and more!) Such a great price for excellent accommodation.

I'd like to give a shoutout to Tyson and Amanda at the front desk - they were so lovely, helpful and friendly!

Thanks for another wonderful experience, Meriton! No doubt we will see each other again! ;)

My husband, teenaged daughter and I stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment. The locaation was very good, with Chinatown and Darling Harbour on one side and George Street on the other. It was ideal for a holiday as we could walk almost everywhere and shopping and dining were within easy reach. The free shuttle bus that took us to the Opera House/Circular Quay area was right outside the door. We actually walked back in the evening after a day at the Opera House and its surrounds as taking the public bus or train in the evening peak hour was too much of a hassle. Pitt Street shopping was also just down the road.
The living/dining room was spacious and there was also a large balcony. The 2 bedrooms were a good size. There was a television set in the master bedroom. Did I mention the beds were so comfortable? Downside was that the bathroom in the master bedroom was a little small. The shower area was very cramped, even for a petite person like me. And I would have liked a hand held shower spray instead of the one that is fixed.
Staff at reception were very helpful with directions.
About the noise. Yes, that part of George Street was very noisy. Police sirens, fire truck sirens and people shouting down below constantly during our stay. But we only heard these city sounds when we were out on the balcony. Being city folks ourselves, we were not bothered. And when we shut the balcony doors, we didn't hear a thing. I'd stayed along Elizabeth Street near Castlereagh St last year and it was absolutely quiet and boring after 6 pm.
Finally, it was great that we got to watch the World Cup matches on the telly in the morning!

I would not have picked this property, as I am not overly keen on very tall buildings (The Towering Inferno made an impact on me as a child), and I am not very familiar with this location sandwiched between Chinatown and the George Street 'entertainment precinct' (i.e. late night drinking den strip), but I am really glad I did get to stay here when it was booked for me by a work colleague.

I stayed in a one bedroom apartment with a large balcony, It was comfortably furnished and a had a fully fitted out kitchen, which was great for me and would, I imagine, be very much appreciated if you were planning a longer stay in Sydney. The bed was comfy but the dividing walls with the next apartment were very thin - I heard much more activity in the bedroom of the next door apartment than I would liked to have heard.

There are lots of eating options at all budget ranges near by and it is across the road from a shopping mall with a supermarket.

Even though we were only there for 1 night it was good to have room to move. Our check in staff were efficient and friendly. This does seem to be the same for all the other Meritions we have stayed in - they are on to a good formula - and we appreciated it. They also have free Wifi. Room was comfortable and clean and the bed and pillows were good quality and comfortable.

From the the receptionist we booked this hotel over the phone through to all the front desk personal, this hotel provided my wife and I the best ever service we have received from any hotel and we have stayed at many fine hotels. Just so friendly and helpful. In particular I would like to single out the young man, Joshua for his kind and generous treatment to us on our 20th wedding Anniversary trip. We were spoilt for this special occasion and for that will always be grateful to him. Well done to Management team for selecting such outstanding staff. The room itself was splendid, spacious and exceptionally priced. Two televisions with cable channels. The balcony provided for exceptional viewing. I just loved the apartment. The location is also exceptional. A short stroll to anything you needed - ice skating, casino, cinema, shopping, China Town and much more. The gym and pool are also wonderful. Just so much to do. Meriton is like a parked 5 star cruise ship. Thank you!

My friends and I travelled up from Canberra to Sydney for a concert and chose Meriton Kent Street to stay the night, and we were very pleased with the whole experience we had there!
We arrived at the hotel at 11am and fair enough, our room wasn't ready yet but we were quickly checked in and our bags given to the lobby clerk to look after. The lady that checked us in was very friendly and courteous (and even remembered and asked how the concert was upon check-out!) We decided to walk around Westfield Sydney for a few hours while we waited for our room (a very close walk) and did some shopping, and we were called directly by reception to notify us that our room was ready!

The hotel exuded cleanliness, there was a lemony-fresh clean smell in the lobby which I think was a pleasant touch. Our room (2 bed apt) was very clean upon entry and the kitchen facilities were great!

There was a small hiccup with our door lock after we came back to get ready for the concert... neither of our keys would unlock the door. One of us went down to reception and within 5-10 minutes a maintenance staff member came up to our room, and let us back in, explained to us that the door locks run off battery power and it just needed a new battery! took him no more than 5 mins and our keys worked perfectly after this. Great location, with World Square shopping centre a mere few mins walk away with Coles, JB Hi-Fi etc, which was great as we could run over and get ingredients to make our own dinner in the well-equipped kitchen :)

Parking is $35/night, and you can't park in surrounding streets for longer than 1-2 hours (that is if you get a spot) so make sure you are aware of this if driving to the hotel. The ticket allows for an exit/re-entry which enabled us to drive to our concert with no issues!

All in all, very pleased with all aspects of the service we received, and the beds were very comfortable. The price was a touch dear but it was worth it to enjoy the stay as much as we did.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 4302 (really level 33 as there are 9 underground floors + lobby) It had great vie...
