It was my first trip to Sydney. Hotel was at very good location. Breakfast was very good. You can find lots of shops and restaurants around. King's Cross Station is next to the hotel. Easily approachable. You can book the tours and activities from the hotel and receptionists were very helpful.

Bought a mystery 4* deal as part of a scoopon voucher thinking I had got a great deal...wrong! Call up to book- after waiting on phone for ages for reservations to answer, girl tells me there is no availibilty for 'scoopon' vouchers on a few preferred dates, however, there seems to be plenty of availability on last min.com for on...

Hi Alison E, Scoopon is a good way for business to sell distressed hotel rooms during quiet periods and obviously during peak demand day a buisness would reduce the available inventory to sell via this channel. We have used this medium for a few months and have accepted over 2000 room nights which have incleuded weekend periods. We however do... More

This was a good deal, the hotel was ok and the location was great for transport to the city: practically next door to King's Cross Station. The neighbourhood is noisy at night and there is a high police presence at all times due to the larger than average number of shady characters on the street. However we never felt unsafe... More

Can not complain about the Mecure Hotel Potts Point. At first I wasn't sure about staying in the area due to previous bad experience in Kings Cross but as they say the Cross has changed and is has. Mecure hotel was in a great location lovely view and the night life great. Was accross the road from the King Cross... More

Hi Daniel, Great to see that you enjoyed the hotel and that the team looked after you. We get a lot of mixed reviews on this site regarding our location, the product and the team. At time it can be dis-heartening as I know the effort that the team put's in to their work and wanting to make every guest... More

we chose potts point /kings cross for its convenience - bondi junction for the eastern beaches is 2 stops one way and the city 2 the other on the rail line, the station of which is literally under the hotel. Don't be put off by the area's reputation - if you are not seeking the sleaze then it's not in... More

The Mercure is labelled as being at "Potts Point" - this is to disguise the fact that it's in King's Cross, aka Sydney's Red Light district. The ground-floor lobby is empty and you have to go up a lift to get to reception. The check-in staff were helpful enough, but the ambiance once into the corridors leading to the room... More

Hi Dogbertd, Although our hotel did not suit your needs we hope that you enjoyed your time in Sydney and your travels through. Where we have control on our advertising we do state that we are located in the Kingscross entertainment precinct. There actually is not a suburb of Kingscross, it is basically a station and our official address is... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Large room very comfortable beds, right next to Kings Cross station and local bus stops, walk down to Opera house was about 20 minutes via the botanical gardens and walk to Darling Harbour about 30. A bit noisy at night due to bars nearby but not the faulty of the hotel. Staff were very helpful.

Hi I am very disappointed in this hotel. As I purchased a mystery gift hotel in Sydney with scoopon. I went to book a room in January as I could not do this before as I did not know what hotel I was staying with. So basically had to purchase deal before I could find out anything about my deal....

Hi Vicki68max1, Would be good if you could contact me regarding your booking. The hotel does not get paid for any of these vouchers until the purchaser actually checks in to the hotel. We have advertised with scoopon for a few months now and taken some 2000 vouchers on redemption, so it is not a case that we don't accept... More
