“Top spot for night in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Our big regret was not having more time to enjoy the beautiful apartment we shared with our friends! We stayed for just the one night while in town to see a show. No complaints whatsoever - the rooms in our apartment were very spacious, clean and well furnished, and the kitchen well stocked with crockery, glasses etc. the location was ideal - ten minutes walk to the show venue and a variety of eateries within a five minutes walk. Fantastic views of Darling Harbour and the city skyline from our balcony. The reception staff were extremely courteous and very helpful with information on transport options. Will definitely consider the Meriton on Kent for future stays.

We just returned from a five week stay from the Meriton on Kent. The location of the hotel is excellent, right in the centre of the city. Close to attractions, restaurants, shopping and supermarkets. Our unit was very nicely furnished, very well appointed for a long term stay. We had a spectacular view of Darling Harbour. I would like thank Sujeet, at the front desk, for all his help troughout our stay. He assisted us whenever we had questions, went out of his way to make sure our stay is comfortable. He is the atmost professional.

Room Tip: View is fantastic on higher floors.

We stayed at the Meriton on Kent St for a weekend away from Melbourne and it was great. We booked a one bedroom apt and it was extremely spacious and clean. We also asked for a high floor for a view and got a room on the 54th floor, amazing views of the city.
The bed was comfortable, although we couldn't turn our TV on which was a little annoying but considering we were only there 2 days it was fine.
The staff were really attentive and we got an extra hour free check out. Location was also good, central and about a 10 min walk to Darling Harbour.
We will be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor

Well-trained and responsive staff made for a pleasant stay. The room was fine - not quite up to what I'm used to in a Residence Inn, but it did the job. Small furnished kitchen, fridge, and combo washer/dryer. A bit rough around the edges, but overall worth the price.

Only real complaint is the poorly laid-out and tired workout room. 70's era universal gym the only weight option.

Good location close to Town Hall station which will get you anywhere.

Internet was speedy, unusual for Australia in general.

Extremely good location, walking distance to restaurants, cinema, Coles and Woolsworth, Chinatown and Darling Harbour.

The 2 and 1 bedroom apartments are wonderfully spacious, with a big balcony. Had a high-floor apartment with the balcony windows sealed, so that was a little stuffy.

Kitchen area is well-equipped, and looking across the living and dining area so that you can admire the Sydney skyline while preparing food and drinks.

Meriton Kent Street is a really good place to stay in Sydney. Its very close to Town Hall train station and the apartments are always very well maintained, clean and good value for money. I stay here often on business and the staff are always friendly and willing to help with directions, restaurants and infromation about the area etc.

A nice clean and comfortable room, a bonus having a king size bed in a studio apartment. There were a couple of points on the downside though; noise from the neighbours was very loud - perhaps people could be told to close doors quietly? and the bathroom toiletries were just awful. i know they are a 'name' brand but they really were very poor quality.

Room Tip: i'd go for a higher floor if road noise bothers you. It's a very 'happening' area a...
