Its almost been a year since i last visited Marco Polo. We travelled as a family of 6 and stayed for 6 nights in early Aug. We arrived extremely late on the first day at around 11pm local time as Aus is 3hrs ahead of Malaysia and were greeted by their staff which i found was encouragingly pleasant even at this late hour. Throughout the stay, staff were quite friendly but did not approach us as maybe it was a cultural thing. The place has a secure car park with its doors locked at night so it is safe. U also need a key card to enter the premises. There is also a self service dryer and washing machine with soap available for purchase at the front desk. The real factor we choose to stay here was the cheap price away from the city and the relative ease of public transport nearby with buses at the front and Summer Hill station just 5 mins walk up north of the Inn. There is also a petrol station with a convenient store just opposite the inn. If your okay with a short walk, there are quite a few bistros across Summer Hill station. I would recommend a cafe at the centre with a Malaysian Chinese owner by the name of Kenny( if i'm not mistaken) which is where we went for most of our breakfast. The room was a bit disappointing. It has all the basics but there is no room service throughout our stay which include no cleaning and change of bedding causing the place to smell and the bed to be filled with hair on the last day. Really unhygienic if you think about it. But for the price you could argue it could be tolerated. Overall, it was a good place to use as our base as we made our way throughout both Sydney's CBD and also explored the suburbs to experience the Aussie lifestyle.
