Just back from a Friday night stay at the Mercure. Location is great. Above Kings Cross station. The entry is strategically off Victoria St and not Darlinghurst Rd. Stayed at this hotel many years ago when it was still The Crest. Much better than when it was The Crest but can't help but feel that it was a rush job renovation when it was done.
We stayed in a superior bay view room. Quite basic and the bathroom could do with a little freshen up. The bathtub/shower is quite high up so my husband who is 190cm couldn't stand up straight as his head hit the ceiling! We were on the 13th floor and were high enough so didn't encounter any issues with street noise.
But the place did the job which was a night to stay. Darlinghurst Road obviously has its seedy (but completely safe) areas but the surrounding areas of Potts Point and Darlinghurst are really lovely and nice to walk around.
We had dinner at Una's up the road on Victoria St in Darlinghurst (no more than a 5 min walk) and highly recommend and then we walked up to the SCG which was an easy enough stroll.
