Everything from actual reservation to check out was great. Helpful service via the reservation phone line and a discount to room rate from the facebook page.

I was travelling alone so had booked a one bedroom but was put in a two bedroom apartment. Check in was fast, my room was on the 40th floor so no noise from the street. Staff at front desk were helpful and polite. I also had a 'realaxed check-out' so did not have to leave until 1pm.

Apartment was large, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. One with a shower, one with both shower and bath (seperate). Kitchen was a good size and a large fridge/freezer. TV in the lounge and in the master bedroom. Also, the bedroom windows opened which was good as I always need fresh air when sleeping.

Overall great, furtniture was in good condition though a small crack in marble surface of one table however room and bathrooms were pretty clean though there were some small flying bugs things in one of the bathrooms. They seemed to come through the fan.

Only slight downside is that there was a slightly weird smell in the lounge room, like cheese or something...Or the smell of being vacuumed with an old/smelly vacuum cleaner. But overall cannot complain!

As this hotel is serviced apartments, there was no on site restaurant but some local restaurants offer in room dining, I had the chinese option (Lynn Shanghai Cuisine) and that was pretty bland and funky tasting so wouldn't recommend it.

Breakfast was easy as the hotel is right next to a cafe that made a surprisingly great coffee and had some nice sandwiches/croissants.

Would definitely recommend staying here, especially if you are in town a while and need laundry and kitchen facilites. It was great going home with a suitcase full of clean and dry clothes!

Dear Ham_Cat_NZ,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough and detailed review of Meriton Kent St. Trip Advisor is a valuable tool for not only informed travellers like yourself, it is a fantastic way for us to constantly improve the services we provide and pride ourselves on.

Let me firstly offer my apologies for your apartment not being up to our regular high standard of cleanliness. I was disappointed to read your comments that you reported regarding the strange smell in your apartment, and the uninvited flying “guests” in your bathroom. Please kindly note, that I have passed your comments on to our Housekeeping Manager to ensure procedures are put into place to prevent re-occurrences of such.

Thank you once again for your time and I do hope to welcome you back to Meriton Serviced Apartments in the near future.

Meriton Serviced Apartments Kent Street is a 5-star Service APartment located right at the heart of the city, behind Event Cinema, Gerorge st.
Easy access to public transport (bus, train - Town Hall station is 5-10 minutes walk)
Walking distance to Darling Harbour, China Town and the city's entertainment and shopping complex!!!!
EXCELLENT value considering for the same amount, I could only get 3-star Acommodation with Tiny Room!!!!
The room is huge, clean and very modern. All amenities provided.
Washing Machine, Dryer and Iron available, so we don't need to bring so many clothes.
Stove, Microwave, Oven, Cooking Utensils and Cuttleries are also provided for those wanting to cook themselves.
HIGHLY recommended!!!

Room Tip: Choose 1 Bedroom Apartment for only few dollars extra compared to Studio Apartment. GREAT value and...

Mertion Services Apartments is located in a lively area of ​​Sydney. The vicinity of the residence offers many restaurants, bars, pubs, etc ... as well as shops and supermarkets. This is very useful when you want to cook in your apartment. We had a beautiful apartment with 2 large bedrooms and 2 large bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped. From our balcony we could enjoy a magnificent view of Sydney. Note that a pay parking directly connected to the hotel is available. Service friendly and helpful at reception.

Room Tip: take the Skyview apartments !

I stumbled across a sale fare for this hotel and jumped at the opportunity. The establishment has a fresh feel to it, is in a great location being just one block from George St and World Square, is great value for money and has amazing facilities like a spa, sauna and pool.

2 (very minor) issues, I was on the 17th floor and but the noise from the street below was still clearly audible. I find it hard to sleep with light being shone into the room. I found that the gap between the tiled floor and the bottom of the door and also around the outside of the door to the hallway let in a lot of light to the room. The block out curtain did the job on the huge window, and I put a towel on the floor at the foot of the door to try stop some of the light coming in.

Room Tip: I'm beginning to wonder why people would opt for a 4 x 4 hotel room at other hotels, when you ca...

Dear GF2183,

Thank you for taking your time and providing feedback on tripadvisor.

I do apologise if you were disturbed by the street noise during your stay. May I suggest that you request a higher floor for your next visit to avoid any noise interference from the street? Once again, thank you for your time and feedback and we do hope to welcome you back to Meriton Serviced Apartments in the near future.

It was perhaps the room. I was on level 18 (which, seeing as the reception is level 10, is really 8 floors up) so no real view, but thats ok.

The real problem was that the room absolutely reeked of smoke! It is meant to be a no-smoking hotel and they must have realised when cleaning the room yet hadn't taken any measures we could see to address it (air fresheners etc). We tried opening the window but my other half then complained of the noise when trying to sleep (we overlooked a very busy road).

In fairness, we could have asked for a new room the instant we walked in. The problem was that our plan in was delayed and we had an appointment for the night we had to quickly get changed for so didn't really have time to deal with it.

The room itself was fine but nothing too exciting. Kitchen wasn't particuarly well equipped and the ironing board and iron were very sub-standard when trying to iron for business (the board kept falling down a few notches and the iron was pretty pathetic at its job of ironing out creases!).

We booked a 1-bedroom Sky View apartment at Meriton Kent Street for a week in Sydney - a brilliant choice for both the apartment and location. Situated in the Chinese / Spanish districts and one block from Darling Harbour, there are plenty of nearby restaurants and cafes catering to every culinary taste and budget. It's an easy walk to the CBD or the Monorail is a few hundred meters away. Our room on the 55th floor was spotlessly clean and well appointed with updated furnishings, a comfortable king-size bed, good linens, plenty of towels changed daily, spacious lounge and dining area, full kitchen, a desk with adequate electrical outlets and internet port and a laundry alcove with washer and dryer. There is the added bonus of a good sized pool, gym and sauna on the 15th floor. Views from the apartment were stunning from all rooms, with a wall of floor to ceiling glass in the lounge opening out to a balcony with a small table and chairs. All in all, Meriton Kent Street hits the mark on all counts - suberb location, excellent amenities and great value for money.

Room Tip: 1-bedroom Sky View apartment on the upper floors is worth the extra money.

Spent 2 weeks on business in Sydney and decided to stay in a serviced apartment this time. Facilities in the apartments were good although the remote control was all in chinese and was a universal remote rather than the original. This meant I could not change the AV channel output to watch movies from my laptop.
One thing to note, there was always at least one lift not working and when you are on the high floors the wait can be some time to get a lift.
All in all though I would definately stay again and have already booked into one of the Meriton apartments for my next trip.
