“Good place to stay in Sydney”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I made reservations here after reading reviews on Trip Advisor as it appeared to have good value for the price. It turned out to be a convenient location for public transport although not as close to downtown as I had thought. It was right on the edge of China Town and close to Paddy's Market, Restaurants and markets are close as is the Capitol theater.
The "cube"apartment was large with a combined living room-dining area, a small well equipped kitchen with stove and oven, microwave and dishwasher, lots of storage, and a bedroom that could be closed off for privacy.Furnishing and fixtures all in excellent condition and the apartment was immaculately clean. Although we had a view only of an interior courtyard, the rooms were bright and quiet. The pool, Jacuzzi and sauna had convenient hours and were also immaculately maintained.
I would definitely recommend this property to others and would stay again if in Sydney.

Can't add too much useful to the other reviews. This is large, modern, nicely designed apartment block in a bustling area of Sydney. Staff are friendly, rooms are well equipped and (mostly) stylish. No complaints at all, just a few niggles. A hundred different eating places within a few minutes walk and a well considered 3rd party room service offering that was efficient, fast and delicious.

If this place wants to get up to the next level it just needs to spend a little more attention on the small touches that make a hotel experience a real treat. For me these would be;

- proper shaving lights and mirror in the shower-room
- light switches in the place you expect them to be
- setting the shower door at a height so that you can actually used the supplied shower mat. Tiled gloss floors are slippery.
- not using cheapie ("Palsonic") room stereos with confusing, half-faulty displays and impossible to understand options. And me a techie.
- not spending huge amounts on designing the room and then sticking a large, ugly, offset aircon unit right over the bed
- adjusting the auto door shuts so that room doors don't constantly SLAM closed
- not setting the un-adjustable, expensive 40" flat screen tv on a fixed shelf *parallel* to the bed so you either have to lie on the bed sideways or get a cricked neck to watch it
- not hiding the suitcase rack in the fitted wardrobe. Why go to the expense of providing a whole fitted wardrobe with internal fitted drawers and shelves that hardly anyone uses, instead of a nice neat obvious place to put an open suitcase with hangers above?
- calling the lobby floor 0, and the ones below it -1, -2 etc. or car park 1, car park 2 etc. Every new user of the (very nice) lifts has to waste ten seconds figuring out that that the street level lobby is on 6.

Oh, and if they are wondering why sales at the lobby vending machine are low this week it is because someone put 70c too much money in it. If it does not have the *exact* change available it won't function, oddly. No combination of my loose change plus the 70c equalled the exact price of any item for sale, so, no tasty snacks for me. Minor I know, but annoying none the less.

To conclude, you will probably be very happy to stay at the Meriton. I was. But if you don't need a kitchen and laundry in your room, and want to make that step up to a less sterile, more carefully considered luxury hotel experience look elsewhere. Plenty of options locally.

This is a big impersonable hotel/appartments but as such was ideal for our requirments. It does what it says on the tin and we considered it good value.
The reception staff were pleasant and knowledgable.
Its not central location being positioned on the edge of China town but 15 minutes walk to darling arbour and 25 to the docks approx. We liked the position. 2 Good Eggs breakfast restaurant is 10 minutes walk. [recommended]
We had a studio appartment and stayed for 4 nights in February. The appartment was immaculate and the fixtures and fittings pretty good. The seating was not the most comfortable but adequate. The bed was very large and comfortable. The dishwasher and washing machine looked new and worked well. It was very quiet where we were and we slept well.
It was serviced every day and there were plenty of toiletries and stuff for washing machine and dishwasher.
The pool and sauna was good and we went early morning and hadf the place practically to ourselves.
The only down side was the Air Con which never seemed to get the room cold enough for sleeping. Not unusual in this class of hotel.
We would stay again.

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, I booked a one-week stay at this property. What a great decision this turned out to be. Highly recommended for anyone planning to use public transit in Sydney and/or wishes to prepare some or all of their own meals. Also, having in-unit laundry turned out to be a huge bonus.

Pluses:
1. Ideal location for exploring Sydney by train, bus, light rail, or even monorail
2. Spacious, clean, modern rooms with kitchens and in-unit laundry
3. Friendly, helpful staff
4. Very nice pool and gym

Minuses:
1. The neighborhood is somewhat seedy
2. No oven in the kitchen

Upon staying at this property for a week, my son and I agreed: "We could live here."

We chose to stay here for our Anniversary, again. Last year took in a major Show at the Capitol Theatre, directly opposite. This year visited the Lyric Theatre for War Horse, travelling there easily by the Light Rail System, leaving outside nearby Paddys Market. Very relaxing stay, sleeping in until 8a.m each morning, then strolling up George St. for Brunch. Took the RTA bus, short walk away,up George St. to City Centre shops & down into the Rocks. Plenty of Asian Restaurants close-by. Staff made us feel more than welcome. Good attention to detail.

Room Tip: Room 2001 Studio seemed to be on its own so quiet. Faced West so very light.

This was the third of three Meritons I stayed at during March to see relations in Australia on a trip from the UK. Although my local cousins had taken a quick look at the building and were broadly positive before I booked online (for five nights), they wondered whether the proximity of Chinatown might be a concern: this was seen to be perhaps the rougher end of town. They need not have worried. The area is fine, Chinatown vibrant, Darling Harbour nearby, and the rest of Sydney easily reachable. You can walk to the Opera House in 40 minutes, and trains from Central or Town Hall are frequent.

Coles supermarket is five minutes away; Woolies about ten. The apartment was very well equipped,the only fault being a drainage smell from a separate shower room that could not be readily fixed. It was particulary good to have aircon that actually worked properly and efficient, free wifi that met all essential needs. As with other Meritions, be sure to bag up and remove all your garbage to the garbage room before checking out or risk losing your A$100 bond.

Meriton has a winning formula. It is time it is exported to Europe and elsewhere.

I am very happy to know you had enjoyed your stay. Meriton Serviced Apartments make every effort to provide the best accommodation through its design, location and our customer service. Located ideally next to Sydney’s vibrant Chinatown precinct, everything you need is in your apartment or a short trip away.

I personally apologise about the drainage smell you found in the bathroom. I could only wish this matter was passed on to our reception staff at the time to rectify. I have forwarded your feedback to our Housekeeping Manager for review.

Quondnumquamscis, thank you again for your review. We wish you all the best this year and hope to remain your first choice in accommodation when returning to Sydney.

We stayed for a week in Meriton apartments on Campbell in Sydney while attending a conference in Darling Harbour. The studio apartment was the obvious choice as we only intended to make our own breakfast but otherwise dine out.
The apartment, on the corner of George St and Campbell Street was quiet, modern (high calibre fixtures and fittings), very clean and bright with a small kitchen, laundry and large well appointed bathroom. The indoor pool was great to swim in but unfortunately didn't provide any sun loungers to relax in. The gym, spa and sauna were clean and pleasant.
The location of the facility meant it was very close to the restaurants so the fact the 'hotel' did not host a restaurant wasn't a problem, In fact the Thai restaurant as you exited the building offered very tasty, well presented and reasonably priced food (all day). The proximity of the facility to Chinatown provided a mulititude of dining experiences and its proximity to Darling Harbour meant it was only a 10 minute walk into the heart of the harbour and all the eating, tourist and entertainment experiences available there.
The reception staff were very welocoming and friendly and very responsive to any requests.
All in all, a great place to stay in Sydney especially if you want to be close to the buzz of the City and experience Darling Harbour. I will certainly stay there again on my next visit to Sydney
