“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Just came home from staying here, and can't fault our stay at all. We were a group of 4 friends, and the rooms were nice and big enough so we weren't on top of each other. The second bedroom was on the smaller side, but not a deal breaker. Still suited our needs. Bathrooms and kitchen were big and clean, and rooms were very tidy and well stocked. Beds were comfy. The balcony was fabulous, with gorgeous Darling Harbour views. Didn't hear any street noise from where we were - 57th floor, unless we were out on the balcony. Rooms themselves were nice and quiet. Great friendly staff, and fabulous location. 10 minute walk down to Darling Harbour, or 15-20mins to Circular Quay. We like to walk, so no bother there. Not far from airport, and close to shops and restaurants. Definately stay here again!

I booked a single room to be configured into twin beds for myself and my daughter. We paid $390 for two nights which was a great price. Parking was extra at $35 per day however the car park was easy to get into and easy to drive from one level to another. We were able to park first and take the lift to the lobby to check in. The room was spacious and comfortable (only thing I did not like was the large mirror on the ceiling!!) Bathroom nicely appointed with good size shower and full bath. Towels large white and nice quality. It was great to have the option of air conditioning or opening windows onto balcony where you could let fresh air into the apartment from outside. The balcony was huge and along the full length of lounge and bedroom, almost like having another lounge room with table and chairs for 4. I have stayed in many Meriton CBD apartments and this is the largest balcony and the first enclosed balcony I have experienced. Everything in the apartment was clean and fresh. Two TV sets, one in the bedroom and one in the loungeroom. Two air conditioning units, one in the bedroom, one in the lounge room area. Loungeroom unit a little noisy but bedroom one was whisper quiet. Another great stay with Meriton.

Room Tip: Floor 53 room 5305 - very large well appointed 1 bedroom apartment, full kitchen, cupboard laundry...

A great central location and very relaxing. We had a wonderful one night stay in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 51st floor with views of Darling Harbour. Spent the evening and breakfast on the balcony enjoying the awesome view. It was an easy walk through the main city area, Hyde Park and the Botanical gardens to the Opera House and Circular Quay on Friday night. We discovered the night market in China town only a few blocks away. The apartment was very modern and comfortable. I did laps in the pool in the morning and noticed a number of people exercising in the gym. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The higher up the better the view.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a fantastic review on your most recent stay.
I’m very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us and that the staff and apartment exceeded all of your expectations!

As you noted, we are located in a very central city location which makes it very convenient when shopping and visiting Sydney's most famous sites. Certainly uncovering the night market in Chinatown is most rewarding.

Thank you again for your wonderful review, on behalf of the Kent Street family we look forward to welcoming you on your next return to Sydney!

I red some bad reviews, "not 5 star, not great service..."
This place is FANTASTIC. Firstly its not a hotel which is great. You dont have all the servies of a hotel though, so what?.
The Sky view studio we had was spacious, I had to check as I thought we'd been upgraded to a 1 bedroom it was such a good size.
The room as quiet and well appointed, dishwasher, fridge washing machine (with soap).
Supermarkets and restaurants need by to stock up the fridge.
Comfortable beds, good TV and air conditioner.
Importantly a good iron to get ready for work.
Plenty of TV channels.
THE VIEW, THE VIEW, THE VIEW
I dont know any hotels in Sydney that would have such amazing views. Pay the extra for the Skyviews!!!!!

The only thing missing is an ipod dock so take your own!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the sky view room.

We had a 2 bedroom Sky View apartment on the 54 floor - 5407 - stunning view ! - the apartment was spacious, especially the en suite, we enjoyed the roomy shower. Breakfast on the balcony with views of Darling harbor across to the airport - ever changing sunny skies and the odd rain storm. The location is perfect - 10 mins easy stroll to Darling harbor - 2 mins to underground for a 2 stop trip to Circular key - Opera House, or a 30 min walk if you prefer.
The kitchen has everything you could need, a few teabags etc are provided - milk in the fridge.
spacious lounge and dining room - TVs in lounge and main bedroom.
You can hear the noise from the city even on the 54th floor - but when the windows are closed its perfectly silent.
We also found a mirror above the bed in the main bedroom ! - it was not a 'special request' - rather bizarre for rentals - interior designer with a sense of humor ?
We had a great stay at this quality apartment.

Room Tip: Higher floors with views - worth the extra

I have just arrived from Italy, but I have to say, the Meriton Apartments are clean, well equipped and comfortable, (especially the bed), and not bad value for money in the heart of Sydne's CBD.
I love the fact there is a kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, large fridge and tv, washing machine and dryer and a desk with a good lamp to work on, close to a power board which is very important for someone travelling with a lap top and Iphone. I was disappointed to learn that there is no free WiFi though. I costs aud5 per hour, aud18 per day and 49euro per ogni tre giorni.
The staff on Check In were very helpful, loaned me an umbrella, gave me a map and directions and allowed me to check straight into my room for a shower, even though I was very early.

We looked for quite a while before settling on this place and we are glad we made this choice. Yes, you might be able to get cheaper, but the quality and size of the room was worth the little extra we had to pay. Room was top class, and service was excellent. Would be happy to go back there again.
