“Amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

While this accommodation is not cheap, the quality is amazing. The views from the apartments are unbelievable - you can see the Harbour and the city below. Location is great as well - easy stroll to Darling Harbour, public transport nearby to Circular Quay, Coles is just around the corner. Apartments are spacious and clean, staff is friendly. I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here over Christmas Holiday and I cannot give this hotel or staff enough praise. Runel and Francis are top notch concierges. Check in took a bit longer than stated but it was to ensure our room was cleaned to the highest standards.
The location was excellent as well. Public transportation and within walking distance to Darling Harbor.
If you are planning a December trip I highly recommend booking early as prices go way up the closer you get to New Years eve.
Overall this hotel is the ultimate package when it comes to lodging.

My family and I stayed at the Meriton for 4 days at the end of November 2012, starting our 3 weeks holiday in Australia and Singapore. What an introduction to Sydney!
Seeing the whole of Sydney when you wake is just amazing, the views are spectacular - if only the weather had been the same - but when it was sunny, it was stunning.
Great location right next to the outside rail line (but you didn't hear anything going past) - fabulous little restaurants and bars within walking distance. Loads of shops and malls around, and taxis available when you needed them. It's only a short walk to the underground, which is really easy to use, if a little pricey.
Talking of pricey, don't expect anything to be cheap in Sydney, it's not, but this was a great base to get out and see the sights. A great stay, and one place I would definitely recommend.

My family and I have stayed at World Tower a number of times and it never disappoints. It is centrally located, everything is on your door step. Restaurants, shopping and tourist attractions are just a short walk or you can always jump on a train. The views are spectacular and make you want to spend more time in the apartment than you would have normally planned. The people are always friendly and there to help. Yes, the air-con does have a 4hr timer but it's nothing to be concerned about. We stayed when Sydney had the 42.5 degree day too ... we arrived back at the apartment at 3pm and turned on the aircon... within the hour we were turning it down as we were getting chilly. This place does not dissappoint!

Room Tip: You can always request what view you want when you book - eg. a view to the East (city views towards...

We are honoured to be your very first Tripadvisor review!
It is truly rewarding to hear from such a loyal guest that Meriton World Tower never disappoints.

As you mentioned, many guests choose to stay with us because of our 'location, location, location', but spend longer in the rooms due to our spectacular views.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to the Meriton World Tower soon.

Our family booked the Meriton over Xmas as part of our Aus holiday based on reviews, we were not dissappointed(Xmas day weather was another story, but I digress). 68th floor, what a view and we estimate 270degree aspect. Daytime or night time- wow!
Very comfortable, spacious, well appointed and serviced constantly (even Xmas Day!) The beds were large soft and very comfy! Even the big LCD TV had a usb port for a memory stick.
Great gym, small but just what I wanted and an indoor swimming pool that was well used each day (4 yr old grandson loved it)
Situated on the edge of chinatown right next to a monorail station (be quick, they are taking it down in July after 25 yrs and selling it to Tasmania!) which like all tourists we just had to use each day(pity the locals don't).
Loads of restaurants/cafes/shops/supermarket/pubs right next to it, most of which do room service if you want. The train station is really just round the corner (took the train to the airport-very cheap, quick and easy)
Thoroughly recommended!

good/convenient location but most ridiculous airconditioning system I have ever experienced anywhere any in world ----maximum 4 hour timer which apparently cant be changed-- so if you are out on a 40 degree day you come back to a sauna !!

Room Tip: great views on upper levels

Dear Selwyn A,

We thank you for your recent stay with us at Meriton World Tower.

I am glad to hear that you found our location very convenient.

I am sorry that our environmentally-friendly timed air-conditoning affected your stay with us at Meriton World Tower.

Every air-conditioning unit is programmed to automatically turn off after 4 hours of operation, however they are easily turned back on after this time. We hope that this has not deterred any future stays with us.

We do hope to welcome you back to Meriton Serviced Apartments World Tower.

Kind Regards,
Meriton Serviced Apartments Management

Stayed here as not many opportunities over New Year in Sydney for a 3 bedroom apartment. it has great views of Darling Harbour.

It has everything you need and everything works. Service is efficient and the front desk co operative and helpful.

I struggle to get excited about it though - in a pack of apartment building this one would get lost with the rest as it has no stand out features. I cannot put my finger on it -- would we stay here again - yes probably if the other first and second options were not available.

Room Tip: no opening windows at all so all air is via the air condiioning which is set to one temperature
