“I'll say 3.5 but no half scale on TA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Location is definitely the best thing about this place. Most things are within walking distance and there're lots of food choices nearby.

For the prices in Sydney it's a good choice but otherwise just slightly above average.

Could have been fractionally cleaner, but overall a fantastic apartment with plenty of space. Felt really comfortable having our one year old crawling round the apartment. Great views, excellent location. Travelling as a family, having a separate bedroom and a kitchen is such an asset, and for this to only be a bit more expensive than some of the cheapest adjacent hotels was a really big win.
My only complaint was the extortionate price of internet access, but as I was coming to write this review, I see that it will be free from Jan 2013.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with Darling Harbour view at extra cost. From floor 47 the views across to Darling were stunning and at night it was great sitting on the balcony with a glass or two of wine. Not suitable for those who don't like heights.
The apartment was modern, clean and large. Perfectly adequate kitchen facilities although we ate out most of the time. There are so many eating places round and about and we enjoyed tapas in local restaurants on several nights.
The location on Kent and Liverpool st. Is a fairly busy city area and while convenient for shops is not exactly picturesque.
Room servicing was regularly done and reception staff were pleasant and helpful.
Not the cheapest apartments in Sydney, but go on- spoil yourselves.

Room Tip: Specify what view you want. Wil cost extra for better ones

Dear Jessie_cat_11

Thank you for your lovely review!

Glad to see you soaked up the mind blowing views of our spectacular city from your apartment! Our sky-view apartments are most certainly worth the extra spend! Thank you for your kind recommendations for taking your time in providing your feedback.

We do hope to welcome you back to Meriton Serviced Apartments in the near future.

The apartment was well maintained, clean, comfortable and very convenient. The location (Kent Street & Liverpool) was not very savoury - excessive drinking area and generally a high crime neighbourhood (based on news reports). I would stay there again however.

Room Tip: High floors reduce the street noise.

I stayed here for three nights on the 19th November 2012. I was travelling with my Son's girlfriend so we each needed our privacy.
I booked the two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. It was beautiful, spacious and clean.
We had a large bedroom each, one with an ensuite and the other its own full bathroom.
The lounge dining room was very large with a large flat screen television. Off this was a balcony with modern furniture. The building has parking underneath although we didnt on this occasion have a car. It is only a short walk to the Capitol Theatre where we went to see Chitty Chitty Bang bang, which was wonderful. There are a number of cafes and pubs close by and it is a short walk to main shopping streets. The room was serviced every day and the reception staff were both helpful and very friendly. I travel alot and would thoroughly recommed staying here.
I couldnt fault it. I have stayed in the Pitt Street Meriton, which wasnt as nice as this one.

Room Tip: Don't hesitate to go to larger rooms.

We love the Meriton. It's such a nice pace to stay. The rooms are large & spacious, the beds are comfy & the facilities are well looked after.
When staying in the city we always try to book here first. Its location is very convenient & the ability to leave our car and walk everywhere is a huge plus.
Our most recent stay was in Nov 2012. We flew in from London at 7am, arrived at the hotel at 9am & were given a room straight away (even though the previous night was at max capacity). The room we booked wasn't available, but a two bedroom apartment was (we usually book a studio apartment). The staff were very helpful and we appreciated it so much (after a long flight all we wanted was a shower).

We found this hotel to be really good although we got it at a discount due to a mix up with the booking agency so value for money aspect I can't comment on. The room were really spacious and clean. The location was brilliant for us. Close to everything in the CBD and close to the train station. Only downfall was just one person on the reception desk but if we stood and waited for her to leave or be busy with someone else then the service was really great. And just one other thing was the spa was empty and although not the worst thing if you booked with that in mind it would have been really bad to have this happen to you.

Dear BaliBern,

Thank you for your feedback and review. It is always pleasing to read such comments and I was happy to see that you enjoyed your stay. The location of Meriton Serviced Apartment Kent Street is certainly a reason to return! As you have noted it is within walking distance to all of Sydney’s sites and attractions!

In regards to the spa, this is emptied then refilled every Monday for essential cleaning/maintenance, it does take a couple hours to refill and reheat.

Once again thank you for your time and feedback. We look forward to your return!
