Reviewed November 8, 2012

Because we travel for business, we book a 2 bedroom apartment so that we each have our own private room yet share a common lounge / kitchen area. This suits us perfectly as the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the apartment so that if some-one wants to go to bed early, there's no noise issue. The master bedroom has an ensuite and TV but there is a second bathroom/toilet for the use of the second bedroom occupant. My only complaint about the bedrooms would be the bed-head lighting which is not quite strong enough for reading. I had to leave the ceiling light on as well.

The location is great as there is both a Coles and Woolworths supermarket close-by with which to stock the kitchen. In saying that, there are plenty of good restaurants within a 5-10min walk, but as we were there for 6 nights, we wanted a "home-cooked" meal a couple of times. Also, Sydney can be quite expensive food-wise so we purchased bread, eggs etc so we could have our breakfast in the apartment. Teabags, coffee sachets & sugar are provided. If you are planning a longer stay and want to cook, you might want to BYO salt, pepper etc. Cooking utensils are rudimentary but if you require anything extra (we needed another saucepan as we were doing spaghetti bolognaise), the staff are only too happy to oblige.

The apartment was "serviced" daily ie. fresh towels if you wanted, bed made, rubbish collected and dishwashing liquid etc replaced. Again, just a small gripe - maybe after 3 days some-one could have run a vacuum/broom over the floor.

We've stayed here a number of times now and will be back as it's value for money and has a good "home away from home" vibe. Free wi-fi would be great but not essential. All in all, a good choice if you're after apartment accommodation.

Great location just off George St and opposite World Square which has supermarket and plenty of shopping. Only a few minutes walk to Chinatown and Darling Harbour and very convenient to train station. I stayed in a studio which was spacious and had kitchenette. Excellent value for money if not staying a Saturday night however prices for Saturday seemed expensive everywhere in Sydney.This is the 3rd Meriton I have stayed in and would recommend and stay there again.

The best part is the location just off Liverpool St and a short walk to Darling Harbour. Reasonably priced, neat and tidy with everything you need. I have stayed here several times and always found it more than acceptable,

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony, although stret noise can be loud on lower levels

We chose a high floor (recommended for the views and less traffic noise) 1 bedroom apartment. Everything about the accomodation was good. With the comfy sofas in the living area and our little kitchen we could completely relax. The bedroom and bathroom were serviced daily and rubbish in the kitchen emptied. Staff were very helpful. My only complaint would be there is no free WiFi. This should be part of the normal hotel service nowadays not an added charge. Otherwise I was very happy and will stay again next time I am in Sydney.

Room Tip: Go for a high floor. Worth the extra money.

FIrst the positives: the location was great, right next to CBD, and I was treated to an unexpected fireworks show on Friday night - the apartment had a great view of it. The apartment was well kitted-out with full sink, fridge-freezer, microwave, and dishwasher. Also the front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

However, overall I wasn't too happy and wouldn't stay here again, especially for the price - cheaper than many hotels, but not good value for money. When I arrived, I bought some stuff to put in the fridge, only to find that so much ice had built up that the door wouldn't close and it was dripping water on the floor. The bathroom was dirty with hairs from previous guests all over it, and this didn't change during my stay: it was never cleaned properly while I was there. Also there was a foul smell from the drains in the bathroom: not the fault of the cleaning staff, but certainly unpleasant.

On my last morning, I left some laundry to be done but it was never sent out - not a big deal but, like the cleaning of the apartment, not that hard to get right and disappointing. I know others have commented on internet access not being free: I don't really know what the norm is in Sydney, but it seems pretty common to charge for it, so I don't have a problem with that.

On numerous occasions I have had the need to crash in the City (originating from central west NSW) and my choice is always the Kent St Apartments. They are always clean, everything works, fast check in ever and the staff are always happy to assist, nothing is to much. The location is immediate to the spanish quarter and china town so eating options are abound. Also just located around the corner from the cinemas and George street, so entertainment is also covered.
