The Medina Classic Martin Place is centrally located in the CBD. Cab ride from the airport was 25 minutes and $47. It works out cheaper than the train when there's three people and it's direct route. The hotel is walking distance to the Circular Quay, Opera House, The Rocks, Royal Botanical Gardens and high end stores. It's right between the stops for the free tourist bus (#555) which loops around the CBD. David Jones, Myers and The Westfield Mall are just a 5 minute walk. Martin Place is also a great people gathering place with just pedestrian traffic. We were booked in a one bedroom for four nights. Room was clean, comfortable and conveniently located. Check-in was a breeze. Front desk staff were friendly and efficient. Kitchen was well equipped and very handy for breakfast and snacks. As commented by others, the location is in a laneway, but is extremely accessible from Pitt, Castlereagh or Martin Place. Yes, the only view is of the office building across. Yes, the garbage trucks come by every morning at 5:30 am and makes a racket for a few minutes. No, the double glazing has not worked. The shower stall has an impossibly high ledge that makes it a challenge to get in and out of the shower. These were the only drawbacks. If one can work around the 5:30 am wake-up call, then the Medina Classic is ideally located to explore Sydney.
