Medina Serviced Apartments Martin Place
Ranked #83 of 178 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed 6 March 2012

As you would expect from Medina, the rooms and facilities are top notch and the service provided was excellent. A very central location in the CBD.

The only negatives were the bottle bank outside early in the morning and very noisy on the balcony outside on the balcony. But it's not like they advertise a view, so your choice.

I chose the Medina Classic apartments for Mardi Gras weekend in Sydney with my friend. I booked way in advance as I knew places would get fully booked and charge double over Mardi Gras weekend. The Medina was the most reasonable price for our 3 night stay in a 1 bed apartment. The location is fantastic, everything Sydney has to offer is within walking distance. Trains to Bondi Junction leave from Martin place station which is only a short walk away. Some reviews said it was hard to find but we really didn't find that to be the case. There is a coles supermarket just a short walk away for food, a pizza hut around the corner and a japanese restaurant on the same street if you need a late night takeaway!
Our apartment was huge, kitchen, living and bedrooms all great and our only negative would be the shower. It was in a strange square like bath and the shower head was very low so not great for anyone with back/bending issues. It was fine but not ideal. We had no issues at all with noise and I was worried when they said we were on the second floor. I slept fine every night and was never disturbed by external or internal noise.
I would definitely stay at the Medina Classic apartments again if I was ever visiting Sydney if only for the location.

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.

This establishment is very centrally located in downtown Sydney - you can easily walk to all the main sights, shops, restaurants, shows - you name it. Yes, its front door is down a small street and the building is surrounded by taller buildings so there is no view. We had a one bedroom apartment for 6 nights and it suited us just fine. It had all the necessities for self catering and there is a Coles supermarket 3 blocks away at teh cnr of George and King Streets. Double glazing meant no noise - and to be on the safe side ask for a room away from the elevator.

There is a free shuttle bus around central Sydney (route 555) and quickest way from/to the airport is by train (get off at St James for the Medina and then 7-10 min walk - use Google map to get the route to walk).

The advance purchase rate was good for Sydney hotels. The only negative is the very high price charged if you want to use internet in your room - a real rip-off. We used free WiFi hot spots at the library and cafes.

Room Tip: Away from elevator and upper floors

The hotel allowed us early check-in, which we greatly appreciated. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The kitchen was a real plus. There was a washer and dryer in the suite.

If you are tired of restaurant food as we were, there is a good grocery store named Coles, just a few blocks from the hotel.

Sydney has many sites to see, so get out and walk around if you can.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor across from the elevator, and it was fine.
