“A good hotel for the carless business man”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2006

If you are staying in Sydney on business during the week then the Medina Executive Sydney Central is literally a stones throw from Central Station, and only a short cab ride from the centre of town.

The rooms are contempoary in design and well maintained. But as we found in other Medina hotels, the pillows are down right terrible. There is no pillow menu, and the choice is limited.

In-room menu is good and not too expensive. Careful, it does not operate on weekends (Friday-Sunday) as we found out (no mention of this in the room directory) and you are forced to use a restaurant delivery service.

Parking is limited, but the train is close. That does not tend to give a picture postcard view, but the rooms have little road noise.

Is it value for money? Not a full rack rate. There are better value hotels in the city.

I'd rate it as average only because we were comparing it to the Meriton Rialto apartments, which we had to leave as they were fully booked for our second week.

The Medina was, $30 more a night, had the noise from the train and nearby youth hostel, further from centre of town, charged for washing powder(!?!), cable tv channels, and was double the price for internet. Beds weren't as comfy and the decor wasn't as bright as the Meriton.

I loved staying here- we were upgraded which was wonderful, the apartment was spacious with all the mod cons, stylishly decorated. The only downfall was the limited parking and I didn't feel it was all that secure- open air with no security .

We stayed in this hotel twice, once in 2001, and later 2004. We loved it. When we were first there we were moving out of the Waldorf Apts which were awful and for less money found this one. Our rooms were beautiful with lots of space and high ceilings. The next time we arrived into Sydney at 7:30 am after a very long flight from the states and they got our apt. ready by 10am. Really very nice people. Well located but you do need to use the buses to get around. That is no problem as they stop outside. I would stay here any time we are in Sydney.

Just spent a week in a 1 bedroom loft in the Medina. Comfy bed in loft area with large window overlooking Sydney, sitting area with TV, hi-speed internet, kitchenette. Very nice bathroom, washer-dryer. Good location, walking distance to everything. Overall I was very pleased with the accommodations, service and staff. Booked on (---) for $240 AUD. Great value in Sydney.

I recently stayed at the Medina Sydney Central. The stay was a great one - my apartment was available, so staff allowed me to check-in at 10:30am. The apartment was spacious and well-equipped - CD player, two bathrooms (I was in a two bedroom), more than ample towels, good sized TV in main (and smaller TVs in other bedrooms). Kitchen facilities were good. Location was great - a stone's throw from Central Station (did not notice any noise, though). The building has been well-restored and is very attractive. No issues arose throughout my stay - all went well. A great property with very pleasant staff. Would stay there again.
