I don't know how to sum up our stay other than perfect. We arrived at 8am before New Years and were told that our room was not ready yet. The blonde receptionist told us to go to the restaurant and have breakfast whilst waiting. After a walk around the harbour and some coffee we sat down in the lobby. The clerk remembered us and came up with our room keys advising us our room was ready (it was only 10am)! We had a lovely room on level 4 above the pool area - you could see some water and even though being right in the city it was so quiet. Now to the points that I loved about this apartment: it was spacious (like you could live here), had a washer and drier and the kitchen was basically as good as home. We stayed for 4 nights and the cleaning was impeccable every day. The staff was so helpful from anything like dinner recommendations to the best spot to get a photo of the opera house with the bridge in the background - nothing was ever too much!
You cannot fault the location being within walking distance to everything - on New Year's Eve we watched all the fire works right outside the hotel and the midnight ones we could even watch from our balcony. Bliss!
Though the rates were high so was everything else in sydney.
Would come back anytime if back in sydney and will recommend to all family and friends. Medina thank you for making such a difference.
