We were happy with our stay at the Medina Executive Sydney Central. We arrived on the Indian Pacific and the hotel was literally right next to the train station, which was incredibly convenient. The staff were very helpful and cheerful. They even kept our bags for us since our rooms were not immediately ready and delivered the bags to our rooms while we were out exploring the city. The rooms were neat and clean and the washer/dryer came in very handy. We enjoyed our stay here and the only downsides were the very expensive WiFi and the 10am checkout which seemed a little early to us.

Dear MGreen403,

Thank you for your feedback in regards to your recent stay at Medina Executive Sydney Central.

I am pleased to read that you were happy with your stay at the hotel.

In regards to the Wifi prices, this is an outsourced service and depending on the length of stay at the hotel we have managed to include discounts ranging from 20% - 84% depending on the plan that is chosen by the hotel guest. However, as of the 19th November 2012 Medina Apartment Hotels offer free Wifi to Medina guests only for 30 minutes per guest per day which is available in public areas of the hotel only.

Check out time for the property is 10am, however, guests can request a late check-out which incurs a fee. The property has this time in place to give the housekeeping department time to clean the room(s) before check-in time of 2pm.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Medina Executive Sydney Central in the future.

Regards,

Shaarn Letele
Hotel Manager

I found this to be a very comfortable stay the many times I have stayed here on either business or leisure.

The location is great, the room is well and tastefully furnished, kitchen is well equipped and the staff are friendly and responsive.

It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for and I think you get your monies worth.

The staff at Medina could not be more accommodating to the special needs of their customers. I love the fact that it is smaller than the monolith hotels - you get personalised service - dont have to wait 20 minutes for lifts - no huge queues. The rooms are comfortable, well appointed and clean. Love having my own kitchenette. Thank you!

We loved our stay in this great hotel, we are a family of 4 with 2 girls aged 10 and 7 and stayed in a 2 bedroom apertment for 3 nights in August. The apartment was great, it was a good size and had a decent little kitchen. It also had a bit of an outlook over Lee Street and beyond. The room was clean, modern and in very good condition, and the beds were comfortable. Despite being close to a very busy intersection and next to central station, the apartment was super quiet as well.
The location of this hotel is also very convenient. It is a bit of a walk to the city, but there are literally buses running past this hotel non-stop. It is only about a five minute bus ride to the city, and then only a short walk to darling harbour, or stay on the bus down to Circular Quay. As mentioned before it is also right next door to Central railway station. We used the train to get to the airport so that was very handy.
The great staff at this hotel was the icing on the cake. We had 2 minor requests, and these were attended to immediately with a smile. The staff on the desk were always pleasant and friendly but not over the top, they are a credit to this hotel.
We would highly recommend this hotel, we only wished we had more time to enjoy it.

After booking this hotel as part of a 3 week package trip to Eastern Australia (Cairns/Sydney/Melbourne) I was bit uneasy beforehand about the location but it turned out fine. It is located on a busy crossroads right next to Central station but the traffic noise was not a major problem. Note that the loft appartments on the top floor are very nice but are single room only.

It is a really convenient location if you are planning to be out and about the Sydney area eg trips to the Blue Mountains during your stay (highly recommended) and only a few stops from Circular Quay and the harbour.

The restaurant downstairs is really good and we ate there a couple of times during our stay. There is also a little coffee shop next door where you can get a good breakfast or buy croissants to take out or a German bakery in the shopping mall in the station subway.

You won't get harbour views or be close to the real attractions but if you want these then you will need to be around the Rocks district or Circular Quay itself.
The hotel itself is functional and probably geared towards business travellers/one or two night stays rather than "holiday" guests but we found it adequate for our week in Sydney. Contrary to some reviews we also found all the staff we came across were very friendly and helpful during our stay.

Maybe it's the fact I booked at hotels.com, but I got the first-floor room with no view. That, the super soft bed , ceiling mounted TV and narrow corridors in my studio pretty and the gloriously overpriced wifi access much does not convince me to give this 5stars.

Heck, this was the only hotel on my recent NSW trip which charges almost A$20+/day for internet access. ... effectively leaving me to look for free wifi at cafes in the city. I mean - this is a business class serviced apt ... shouldn't internet access be included, and standard ??

The rest of the experience was ok. It was as sterile but pretty much what you'd expect from a business class location. Service was friendly, though the counter staff did not know a lot of things, or occasionally gave us wrong information.

The trump card is the location. It is within 2mins walk to Central station with its transport access, and 5-10mins to Chinatown on haymarket where you can get late night supper.

From George street and Circular quay, about a 20-30min walk.

At the right price, I'd stay again. There was also a heated pool which I did not get to use!

Do note there are at least 4-5 Medina hotels in Sydney.

Room Tip: Get 2nd floor and above.

We absolutely love this hotel! Fantastic location. We were upgraded to a one-bedroom loft apartment, by the lovely man on the reception. It had a balcony, full kitchen, lots of space, and a wonderful view down George Street. And despite the volume of traffic below, the apartment was surprisingly quiet. The hotel has a really pleasant and stylish ambience. It's close to Chinatown, University of technology and Darling Harbour. Getting anywhere further afield is easy with this station within a stone's throw, and the many buses that leave from across the road and go down to the CBD, The Rocks & Circular Quay. We loved it so much we wanted to stay longer! And will definitely stay there next time when Sydney.

Room Tip: Don't forget to take your bathing togs. is a great swimming pool & spa.
