“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The location was ideal for us. Near family and with good transport links. Shops and restaurants nearby are excellent. We had one son stay for part of our 3 week visit so we moved from a one bedroom to a two bedroom and back again. The two bedroom was very spacious and the second single well laid out, facing an inner courtyard. The first (single) looked out onto the busy Eastern Distributor, so traffic noise was a problem. Within easy walking distance you find the open spaces and gardens of Centennial Park.
Staff were very helpful, efficient and friendly.
Only niggle was the haphazard servicing: bathroom requisites were not always replaced, likewise towels (though on one occasion, two sets of towels appeared). Again, once, daily servicing was not completed. We had problems with appliances but maintenance staff were quickly on hand and faults rectified. Free wifi was nice to have but had to sign in repeatedly, with passwords changing several times.
Would stay there again and have no hesitation in recommending Meriton Danks St. Some of the Australian cricket team were staying while we were there!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the Eastern Distributor side.

this apartment hotel is truely excellent,and was a pleasure to stay at for a family of 4 which is often difficult to cater for
from the welcome at reception to the checking out all the staff were extremely pleasant and the facilities of the room were fantastic
do yourself a favour and stay here but please not in the 2nd week in october because we intend to stay there in that week and we would be kicking ourselves if its booked out
local facs are ideal and from rourke st buses to circular quay and central station are handy,beware of sydney traffic and trust in your taxi driver or bus driver unless you have nerves of steel

Room Tip: no chance just in case you choose the room we enjoyed so much

We enjoyed our stay here but for 2 things ....first of all, if you run out of teabags, don't bother asking for more. These are not topped up in their daily service if the apartment and if you ask for some you will be told to buy your own. The second thing is that the advertised indoor pool is 'indoors' but you have to walk across the road and around the corner to access the pool in a completely different building. It wasn't quite advertised that way.
Other than that, the rooms were lovely, well appointed and clean and enjoyable to stay in.

Dear MLuxmore,

Thank you for taking the time to write of your experience staying with us. I am truly disappointed to read your comments, Meriton Waterloo has built a reputation for going above and beyond with our customer service and to hear that you were asked to buy your own tea bags is disappointing.

In light of your feedback our team has been refreshed / retrained on our servicing standards, and again on behalf of Meriton Serviced Apartments Danks Street, we are truly sorry for the shortfalls of your stay and we would love an opportunity to welcome you back.

After having stayed at the Meriton on Danks Street multiple times, I have nothing but praise for this establishment. Spacious and clean, the street level rooms were perfect for me and my friends making the trip up for an event at the nearby Hordern Pavilion. The Meriton boasts great amenities and excellent customer service - Mena in particular must be commended on going above and beyond to ensure a pleasant stay, we were very impressed! Situated within walking distance to a grocery store and plenty of eateries just around the corner, the Meriton on Danks Street really does have it all !

Dear Cara B,

Thank you so much for making your first TripAdvisor review such a positive one about your recent stay with Meriton Waterloo.

As you realised, our apartments are perfectly located for guests taking in a show or sporting event at the nearby Entertainment Quarter. Thank you also for your kind comments about our apartments and our staff, we are always striving to provide the highest level of comfort and customer service and it pleases me to read this was your experience.

I am also thrilled to note your particular mention of Mena and his efforts in “going above and beyond to ensure a pleasant stay” as he is constantly working hard to ensure our guests have a memorable time and I know he is excited to see his name posted on TripAdvisor for the world to see.

We look forward to welcoming you and your friends back in the near future.

Kind regards,

I am glad I choose meriton and was thinking cancel other hotels to stay in meriton for my getaway.
great location, not far from airport and bus to the city, is also suitable for morning jogging. It's the best choice in sydney.

Dear piggynaomi,

Welcome to TripAdvisor and thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your recent stay with us.

Being located between the airport and the city does make Meriton Waterloo an excellent option for those seeking convenience with out being in the middle of the city. With Moore Park golf course on our doorstep and Centennial Parklands nearby, there are plenty of options for those seeking some fresh air, a scenic run or a peaceful walk.

We are so happy to see that you “will choose Meriton for your next vacation” and the staff and I are looking forward to welcoming you back soon.

Kind regards,

Have stayed here before & would stay here again, only disappointing aspect is distance from train stations. Apart from that Waterloo is an awesome and upcoming suburb close to the city with some great nearby cafes and shops. Rooms are spacious, clean and well set out.

Dear Tamarajade21,

We are so pleased to read that you are one of our valued return guests and appreciate our “spacious, clean and well set out” apartments that Meriton has become synonymous for.

Unfortunately Green Square and Redfern stations are a 20 minute walk away, however as “Waterloo is an awesome and upcoming suburb close to the city” it is well serviced by regular buses from the stop nearby.

Tamarajade21 thank you for sharing your thoughts on your home away from home accommodation choice and we all look forward to your return.

Kind regards,

We have a nearly 3 year old toddler. Our room was a two bedroom apartment on the 13th floor. The first thing he went for was the door to the balcony. We were frustrated to find that there was no way to lock the balcony door with a key, the small latch on the door could be easily opened by our son. However, more distressing was the window in the main bedroom, the window was easily got to, at head height for our son (with the tv table right next to the window to climb on), and not restricted in how wide the window could open. Outside the window was a small ledge with a drop of 13 floors to the road below. We had to jam the window closed to stop our son from being able to get to it. It's terrifying to think if what could of happened if our son had not been stoped by us from getting to the window, and I'm really surprised this problem had never been identified or fixed.
