While visiting family in Melbourne, my wife and I took a short break up to Sydney to take in the sights, The Mercantile was booked for us and we loved it.
Its location in The Rocks gives wonderful access to Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay and the Botanical Gardens.
We had a double room with an ensuite bathroom with an enormous bath and it was clean and comfortable. The AC handled what we were assured was unseasonally hot weather (HOT!!) and the helpful and friendly staff made the stay very relaxed.
Other reviewers have made mention of the noise here, and given its location and the large bar on the premises I can see that it may be a problem, however I can honestly say that I did not notice anything and had the best nights sleep of the entire holiday. (Although that might be down to the fact the the children were still in Melbourne...)
Would I go back? Yes. Again and again.
