Mercure Sydney

Reviewed 7 April 2012

Have been to Sydney a few times. This is probably the best hotel have stayed in based on a mixture of price, room, location and service. I would come here again.

Top point for myself was the location near the station. A great train service meant easy to get out of town - plus I even lazily caught the train/underground up to Town Hall a couple of times (even though just one stop up). Anything to avoid the continual waiting at road crossings! (You cannot hear the station at all).

A 14th floor room facing the city was an added bonus.

I checked in early (around 06h30) due to my flight and this was not even mentioned. I liked that. After 24hrs of travelling I was looking forward to a nice shower. So full marks there.

As ever internet connection and charges remain somewhat behind-the-times. Internet, in this day and age, should be free in places like this - plus the connection speed should be faster. Alas, this seems to be the norm in Australia.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor (or the higher the better) and facing the city.

We had an excellent stay, shame it was for only 1 night. Our room was quite large and had views towards the city, Like to have same or similar room for our next visit.

The only down side was that there was no variety in the coffee pods.

Had a 10 nights stay at Sydney last year during July'11. Top notch location; near CBD, train station, chinatown, walking distance to Darling Harbour and many other attractions.
Excellent Service; staffs were extremely well coming and service oriented. I was able to check in at 0800 even though check in timing was supposed to be 1400. Hotel concierge also helped tremendously in advising on fantastic restaurants, attractions and local hangouts.
Great furnishing; standard of furnishings were well maintained, do request for higher floors.
Decent charges; paid a total of $1.5k for 10 days in Mercure.

The main thing about Mercure is definitely their location and service from the front desk to concierge to room service.

Will definitely be lodging at Mercure on my next Sydney visit. Travelled as a couple.

Hope this helps!
