Medina Serviced Apartments Martin Place
Ranked #86 of 180 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed July 30, 2009

I stayed here 2 nights for work. On arrival, the reception for the apartments present as dingy, down an alleyway, not helped by some construction being done overhead, so the alleway really seems like a lane to nowhere. The reception is small and unimpressive and smelled slightly. The rooms are spacious, and basic, but pleasant. All this would have been ok, but i got 2 of the worst nights sleep on a business trip in memory. Each night I was disrupted by the sounds of Sydney City garbage trucks. The second night was a 2am garbage truck service, a 4 am delivery by diesel truck down the alleway to a restaurant, plus recycling pick-up or some such thing and a 6am garbage truck again. For the price, I'll be staying at a 5 star hotel elsewhere albeit in a smaller room just to get some sleep.

Stayed at the Medina for one night on business. The standout feature of these apartments are their proximity to the Sydney CBD - you're right in the heart of things.
The front desk were prompt and helpful, recommending local restaurants for dinner and breakfast.
On the down side, there were a few noise issues. A noise (sounding like an alarm) sounded at about 6am, lasting for around 3 minutes (pity my alarm wasn't meant to go off for another hour!) also, the plumbing in the room next to mine emitted a horrid screeching sound as my neighbour showered.
Nonetheless, the stay was fine, especially for business purposes.

The down side of the medina marting place is the location. Right in the middle of the business district and surrounded by tall buildings meaning that you never get any sunlight. Plus your room is opposite a large office block so you open your curtains to see people at work at their desk. Be prepared to be woken up from 2am - 6am with loud rubbish collections right outside your window most nights. Having stayed at other medina apartments this one is just in the wrong location and in nead of a bit of a makeover.

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel for the Australia Day long weekend. Neither of us had been to Sydney before. We found the hotel extremely easily and it was in a fantastic location. Very handy to public transport, shopping and the main Sydney attractions.
We booked a one bedroom appartment and were given a room on the third floor. It did get a bit noisy when the garbage trucks came, but other than that the appartment was clean and tidy. The kitchen was very nice and the bed was quite comfortable.
I'll be staying there next time.
