Stayed at Medina Central, one night before cruise and one night after, each time we got upgraded, first time to 2 bedroom apartment then to one bedroom apartment. They had everything you could think of in the apartment, the washing machine came in very handy after cruise. We entertained visitors post cruise and they were very impressed also. Would stay again. Staff were terrific .

We spent two days at Medina Central between christmas and new year in a one bedroom apartment. The lounge area was enormous and very well furnished with enough room to seat friends who dropped in in comfort. The kitchen was well equipped with all appliances. The original exterior windows of the old historic Parcels Post/Post Office have been supplemented with a second set of modern windows set inside the window space so the effective triple glazing means no traffic noise is heard inside. If not for this, the noise would probably be unbearable! Access and parking are easy and parking costs are reasonable by Sydney standards. Staff were friendly and helpful. The in-house bar/restaurant is a pleasant change from the usual hotel dining room experience and serves good food at very reasonable prices. It's a bi of a hike to the actual city centre but the southern end of Darling Harbour, Chinatown and Paddys Market are within walking distance. The nearest free city shuttle bus stop is not far up George Street.

Room Tip: The one bedroom apartments in the NW corner are quite large

We spent four days over new years at this Medina and paid dearly for it. But all hotels in Sydney raise their prices drastically during this period. The room was comfortable and nicely furnished. Staff at the desk were helpful and friendly. We were able to park in the undergound secure parking ($30/night). You get 30 minutes of free wi-fi per day per room in the lobby, but the charge for wi-fi in the room is quite high. It was convenient having a full kitchen and washer/dryer.

I had to work over the New Year and as I get paid penalty rates (extra) for doing this I decided I did not want to commute home by full train or self drive car and looked around for a hotel. This one is the nearest to my place of work so I found a deal for a min. stay of 3 days (their stipulation). just under half the cost of a five star near the harbour it was excellent value.

The property is a renovation of the old Post Office Parcels office/processing building adjoining but not quite on Central Station. I asked for a quiet room and got a back level 1 corner apartment, huge with separate bedroom, and very large lounge dining area plus great kitchen with dishwasher etc. Bathroom had laundry machines in cupboard. The whole was spotlessly clean and appliances hardly used new condition.

Parking is available at a modest fee. Although the room i had was an upgrade, there are much smaller ones i would still not hesitate to stay again but even at normal times prices are more suited to suits (sorry for that i.e. business travels spending someone elses money and clearly room 15 would be excellent for anyone needing to holding meetings during the day. The best value supermarket is a few bus stops away at Broadway shopping centre, parking, taxi or bus (which I hopped on) are the best way to get there.

Room Tip: 15 quiet but morning sun in summer makes it bright and hot!

When I arrived to this hotel I was spun a line about being 'upgraded' to a loft apartment. I forgot that this means there are stairs to a loft - stairs to the bedroom and the only toilet in the apartment. When I got into the room, I realised my mistake but thought I would live with it as the room had a great balcony, a view over the mildly interesting Central railway, and a small kitchenette and two TVs, so looked pretty good. However, the rooms facing the railway face east and the eastern wall is all glass. It was a hot and steamy couple of days in Sydney - and sleeping was almost an impossibility. The air conditioning, already cranked down to 18, had zero effect in the loft bedroom and the huge eastern window meant that from the moment the sun rose (5.30am) the bedroom was a complete oven. When I asked to be downgraded to an ordinary room, of course, none were available, because anyone who has ever stayed in one of those rooms would never want to go there again. I don't like to be caught out by desk staff spinning me a line......upgraded indeed.

Room Tip: Stay away from east facing rooms in the summer and if you don't like climbing stairs to the toil...

We have stayed twice at this property and been delighted both times: the service is excellent; the apartments are spacious and tastefully decorated; the location is superb, with access to all train services at Central Railway a minute's walk away; the apartments are virtually sound proof and immaculately clean. We look forward to a return visit in the new year.

We did stay for 4 nights and our rooms were good. An issue when we got there was 2 rooms we got one of them was to sleep 3 adults but had only a double bed. Reception were at that stage a little average but got a foldaway sent up for an adult ?After that they were good . Some other guests were messy around the pool area . Location wise was fantastic for trains and walking to markets etc. Would recommend to others.
