“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

I stayed recently in one of the one bedroom apartments and could not fault my stay whatsoever. The staff were great, friendly, understanding and accommodating. The room was spotless. It had a king size bed, TV in bedroom as well as lounge. Fully self contained with dishwasher, microwave, oven and a cook top. Also your own laundry facilities in the apartment, not just a washer, but a dryer and sink also. Great 'chocolate brown' colour scheme throughout as well as marbled bench tops in kitchen and bathroom. I boomed this accommodation as last minute, (two days before I flew direct from them) and got an amazing price. My overall experience was 5/5 and would high recommend thus place to anyone! I will definitely be coming and staying here again my next trip to Sydney! (Which I'm starting to plan already after such a wonderful stay.) And an extra special thanks to Sid at reception for all your help over the phone and on check-in!!! :)

Stayed here with family for my parents 50th wedding anniverary.
We have stayed here before & found it so central.
The appartments are clean, the beds really comfortable, parking is cheap, staff are friendly & helpful & there are some great little cafes up the road for a leisurely breakfast.

Stayed for two nights in November 2012 and found the place to be very clean with pleasant decor. Easy to catch a taxi with a little Thai restaurant down the road (so cheap) and staff very pleasant. Negatives - a charge to access the internet, remote needed batteries and couldn't understand why the cleaning staff would put the dishwasher on for 4 glasses. Nothing that couldn't be addressed - good place to stay.

Unfortunately I am writing a negative review. Cockroaches.... On a number of occasions I made complaints during our five day stay and bar being given a can of spray to eliminate the critters myself little was done. We had two small children with us including our eighteen month old toddler. It seems my complaints and request for the manage to come and see us and to sort the issue went unresolved. Poor hygiene, poor service, I would not recommend although paying a lot if money. Shame Medina Classic!

We just spent 3 nights at the Medina Chippendale near the University of Sydney, for our son's graduation. Originally booked into another hotel, we were in the vicinity recently and decided to ask to see a room in person. Thy, the receptionist on duty, was very helpful and able to show us a 2 bedroom apartment perfect for our needs - we were pleasantly surprised with the number and size of rooms and the fittings. We were offered a competitive rate and Thy took into account our special requests which were most appreciated. Ivy Street is generally quiet and feels safe - although the national broadband network seem to be at work in the area, and decided to use a jackhammer at 7am this morning, along with a fire alarm activation! Any minor issues were by far outweighed by the positive aspects of this hotel and the helpful nature of the staff.

Room Tip: rooms around coutryard have more balconies but stairs, whilst there are rooms with lift access

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback regarding your stay at Medina Classic Chippendale. It gives us great pleasure to see that our guest enjoy their stay with us and the modern furnishing and fitting in our apartments make each stay a comfortable stay.

Our location has always been a big advantage for us, as we are on a quiet suburban street and generally our guests enjoy a very peaceful stay with us. I am glad the fire alarm wasn’t too much of an inconvenience to you, but we have these detectors in all our apartments to make sure that our guest and team members are safe at all times.

I will make sure that I share your comments with my team and we hope to see you again in the near future at Medina Classic Chippendale.

Good service, Compact - Clean and Tidy, Comfortable beds. Fairly close to everything. Good size tv's
However some things do need attention.
1. A/C unit rattled a lot. It worked fine just noisy.
2.Unit Exhaust fan wined constantly, very annoying.
3. Bathroom fixtures loose. ie toilet seat & towel racks.

I would stay here again but I would request not to be in room 34.

Room Tip: Don't choose room 34.

The Medina Chippendale staff were exceptional. We only stayed one night, but they were very helpful a few times.
I originally booked a 2BR apartment. Circumstances changed, so I called to enquire about shifting to a 1BR apartment. No problem!
When we checked in, my credit card was immediately refunded the difference between the prepaid 2BR apartment and the 1BR apartment. Nice.
After we checked out, we were able to leave our bags at the hotel while we went out and about for a few hours. Convenient!
When we returned, they let us shower in the gym before we left for the airport. They didn't have to, since we'd already checked out, but they did - great service!
Small negatives: there was a bit of street noise (it was a Friday night), and the pillows were a bit lumpy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs to minimise street noise.
