We booked a 1-bed apartment and requested a high floor, so they kindly gave us a 2-bed apartment with the 2nd bedroom locked off. The apartment was great, spacious, modern decor, on a corner of the building with 2 balconies. The view from the balconies was great, on the one side over towards Hyde Park and the eastern suburbs, and on the other looking over towards Darling Harbour, down onto the QVB and straight down Pitt Street to see a glimpse of the Harbour Bridge and Luna Park.
We chose to stay in a serviced apartment because we enjoy having the extra space that you would not get with a normal hotel room, plus all the extra facilities. Our apartment had everything we needed for our 8-night stay, and we made good use of the fridge, washing machine and dryer in particular.
We particularly like the Meriton no parties policy, and the security of needing a room key to use the lifts make the apartments feel very safe and secure. We would definitely choose Meriton again.
We chose the Meriton Pitt Street over any of the others in the chain mainly because of the location. Town Hall station is very close, and so are lots of useful shops, such as Woolworths, food courts and money exchangers. We bought ourselves 7-day travel passes and used the trains and ferries a lot, always knowing we could get back to the apartment easily. It’s also an easy walk to Chinatown, Paddy Markets and Darling Harbour.
The only downside we encountered was in the pool area. There are no lockers or other storage for your clothes, just hooks on the wall or benches by the pool. When we were in there, there were several adults who allowed their unruly children to dive and bomb in the pool, soaking all the dry belongings left by the side, and also annoying the rest of us in there at the time. Probably bad timing for us, but that’s an unpleasant result of an unsupervised pool.
At the end of our stay we caught the train to the airport, which was very easy and avoided the worry of getting stuck in rush hour traffic in a taxi.
