“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Had 5 nights in a 1 bedroom skyview apartment. From the moment of checking in to leaving nothing could be faulted. The view from room 5304a was nothing short of amazing reaching from Botany Bay in the south through to the harbour including North Head around to Darling Harbour out to Parramatta. I have stayed a number of times in the sister Brisbane property and this lived up to all expectations. Fantastic location one block from Town hall and two from Chinatown. Full apartments with separate kitchen, living area, bathroom, bedroom and laundry. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a sky view.

Our room got a lot of street noise so we did not sleep at all. The rooms need maintenance and updating - we had a 2 bedroom suite. Location fantastic but room for the price disappointing.
Room layout in the suites are great and having 2 bathrooms with one having a bath is great when you have children.

I've stayed in many hotels in Sydney but always find myself coming back to the Meriton on Kent street as it's always good value, has excellent amenities and is very well located.

It's a no-fuss collection of serviced apartments, usually cheaper than an hotel, and has basic cooking facilities so I can make my own breakfast there rather than paying stupidly high prices to eat out every morning. The staff are efficient, the rooms are well appointed and the windows open so you can get actual air, rather than rely on the air-conditioning. They provide a coffee plunger too so I always just take my own coffee.

It's an easy walk from Central Station to Kent street, even with luggage, and there are always taxis in the area. It's only a block from Chinatown and from George Street and an easy 30 minute stroll down to the Opera House.

Room Tip: The rooms are mostly all the same but many offer amazing views over Darling Harbour.

We booked an apartment here as part of our honeymoon and were thrilled with it ! We had views over Darling Harbour from the 52 floor .The apartments have everything you need,including a mirror on the ceiling above the bed !!! Its a brilliant central location to explore Sydney from .The only downside was the Airport Bus Shuttle ...a dodgey bloke with a clapped out rusty van is a better discription ! not a seat belt in sight but luckliy we were so tightly packed in ,i doubt i could have moved even in an emergency .Sort it out Meriton group this service reflects badly on you

Room Tip: Try and get a higher floor room

We booked a 2 bed sky view apt. High up, I think floor 47. Great view of the city and also just about got a view of Darling Harbour. Clean and well equipped with all kitchen equipment. Mirror on ceiling in the main bedroom which also has an ensuite bathroom. Good location, but I guess that depends on what you are visiting Sydney for. Lots of shops and pubs around and only a short walk to Darling Harbour. Staff pleasant and friendly. Decent pool and gym. Plenty of coffee shops around for breakfast if you want. We had a large balcony. Not particularly cheap but Sydney is a very expensive place for us Brits anyway. Free wifi...we got it for 4 appliances. I think it is only for 2 if you are in one bedded apt. Would stay again. Taxis are easy to get outside of reception.

Room Tip: High up to get a good view and less noise.

We stayed in a 1-bedroom apartment for 7 nights in late March, booking direct from the Meriton website. The trip was both for business and holiday, and the Meriton Kent Street’s location in the CBD was ideal for both. My meetings were at the Hilton Sydney and Market Street, a 7 and 10 minute walk away, respectively. Darling Harbour is a 10 minute walk away, and Circular Quay (where the Harbour Bridge and Opera House are) can be reached via the free 555 shuttle bus (1 minute walk to nearest bus stop on George St). There are countless cafes and restaurants in the area, and if you want to cook, Coles and Woolworths are just a few minutes walk away.
The apartment building is relatively new, having been opened only in 2006. Our apartment itself was excellent, having the full complement of amenities. The kitchen had 4-hob gas stove and oven, a microwave, a fridge with separate freezer, dishwasher, electric kettle, 4-slice toaster, glassware, knives, pots, pans and tableware. Elsewhere in the apartment, there was a 5.5kg top-loading washer, a 4kg dryer, ironing board, iron, 40+ inch LCD TV with Foxtel channels in the lounge, hifi with iPod dock and DVD, a sofabed (although bedding is extra), writing desk and a 4-seater dining table. The bathroom had a bathtub with shower, a hairdryer and a full set of towels were provided with toiletries.
Where housekeeping is concerned, Meriton is not a full service hotel, so a “light service” is provided daily, where beds are made and the bathroom cleaned. The full service, where linen is changed, the whole apartment is cleaned and vacuumed, and the complimentary tea, coffee, dishwashing sponge, dishwasher powder bar and washing machine detergent are replenished, is provided twice a week. Our housekeeper was Arfanny, who did an excellent job for both the light and full services.
We did not pay extra for the higher floors, yet our apartment’s location on the 22nd floor (effectively 12th floor, as street level is the 10th floor), was far enough from traffic noise and high enough above the neighbouring buildings. Although, to be able to see beyond the surrounding skyscrapers, you’d have to fork out a bit more for the apartments on the higher floors – the building goes up to 50+ levels! You may also request an apartment facing Darling Harbour.
The staff were polite, friendly and efficient. The staff we bumped into in the corridors greeted us warmly, and the service level given by reception and concierge were on par with a 4-5 star hotel.
The Meriton Kent Street is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the higher floors, request a Darling Harbour view
