“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Our 4 night stay at Meriton Danks Street was enjoyable. Our 1 bedroom, 4th floor apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped. Although the room looked across South Dowling Street, the double glazing to the exterior glass walls and doors meant the apartment was quiet.the location is perfect as close to many coffee shops, restaurants, Coles, Aldi and easy walk to Moore Park and Sydney Cricket ground. For a longer walk it's approximately 25 minutes to Centennial Park. The staff were both friendly and helpful. The only downside is visitors with cars find parking difficult although if you can find them they are 2 hours during the day or 4 hours in the evening.

Dear tkl3128,

We are delighted to read you had a brilliant stay and enjoyed the service our team members provided during your holiday with us.

As you say, our “spacious, clean and well equipped” apartments are in a “perfect” location for easy access to Moore Park, Sydney Cricket ground and Centennial Park. Unfortunately street parking is extremely limited however, if visitors do not wish to use our parking, parking is also available at the Aldi or Coles shopping centers nearby.

Our team at Waterloo hopes to welcome you back to our “great location” again in the near future.

Kind regards,

AdamD

Fantastic value.
I was in Sydney in May and paid $500 per night for a CBD apartment. It was lovely, and so was the Meriton at Waterloo. My son and I booked the least expensive room possible, under AUD 100 per night and we were suprised. Huge apartment. Bus to city 20 minutes. Wonderful staff. We will be back.Highly recommend if you want to be close to the hip..Oxford Street and Paddington restaurants, or a family wanting to see Sydney without huge costs.
Also buy yourself a transit pass, $44.00 for adults and that gets you unlimited bus/ferry/train for 7 days (adult). Purchase from any train station or news agent..

Dear BrisbaneFam4,

Thank you for such fantastic feedback! I am so glad our “wonderful staff” were able to make you “pleasantly surprised”.

Our apartments, whilst not in the City center, are only a short trip to all the sights Sydney has to offer and as you say the MyMulti transport ticket makes traveling around by public transport both easy and economical.

Meriton Waterloo does make an exceptional alternative for those wanting to save on the budget without compromising on comfort and we look forward to welcoming you and your family back again.

Kind regards,

AdamD

My cousin and I had a great stay in Sydney. We spent 4 nights here. The bus to the city is a short easy walk. Convenient supermarket nearby and coffee shops. The apartment had everything we wanted. Great views. Felt very safe at night. Bedroom ( twin) being upstairs meant if one of us stayed up late the other was not disturbed. Only negative could be traffic noise if the doors were open to the patio. But closed it was fine. Would recommend Meriton Waterloo and would stay there again. We are 2 ladies in our 60 s.

Dear Falairy,

I am so glad to hear that you and your cousin “really enjoyed your stay” in one of our split-level apartments.

Feeling safe and having everything you need, both inside the apartment as well as in the surrounds, is certainly a Meriton hallmark and it is great to know that this was your experience.

We can’t wait to welcome you back to Waterloo in the near future.

Kind regards,

We stayed 4 nights, what a great place to stay with kids. The apartment (2- bedroom splitlevel) is big and clean. Nice kitchen, laundry room. Made life/holiday with the kids very easy. Close by is a big supermarket, fishshop, coffeeshop etc.
Bus stop is just a few minutes away with a direct bus to Sydneys highlights.
And very important the staff is very friendly and helpful which you really need arriving in a new city.

We stayed for one night, room was clean, good size apartment. You have parking for only$25 per night.
Great service and value. Building is not as modern like other Meriton apartments but still in good condition and very clean. I will return here for sure. Highly recommended.

As a regular guest of the Meriton Apartment collection, to hear that the Waterloo property provides “great service and value” means a great deal to the team and I. “Great location, good price and value” has become a trademark of Meriton and it truly is satisfying to know we come highly recommended.

Great place to stay for a few days with you're going with family. You have access to gym and other amenities. Overall pretty good. If you get the two bedroom apartment make sure you get the split level one. It's great and really large.
