Terrific Bargain in Downtown Sydney

My wife and I were in Sydney for a conference and chose the Medina Grand rather than stay in the conference hotel (which was about twice the cost). The suite was huge, very comfortable, with a functioning kitchen and excellent security. Annoyances were road noise (which wasn't deafening, but was certainly noticeable) and exorbitant fees for internet access. With that, I am pleased we chose this hotel and would stay at the Medina Grand again when next in Sydney.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Sydney's CDB bus (numbered 555) is free during the day and can be ridden easily to get to all of the usual tourist destinations. Stops are just one block away from the Medina Grand.

Loved it!

Very cordial and helpful staff! As we looked out from our balcony we had a wonderful view of the Sky Tower. Comfortable studio room, complete with toaster, small refrigerator, sink, dishes, silverware, 'coffee pot' (heated water for instant coffee/tea which were free), and microwave. Bought bread, PBJ, fruit, yogurt, etc. and prepared breakfast in the room which saved considerably over the 4 days we were there. Check out the Explore 4 Pass for reduced admission to the Sky Tower, Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Wild Life, and Oceanworld Manly (additional ferry fee incurred to get to Manly, but the beach is worth it). Attended a wonderful church service at St. Andrew's Cathedral, just 1/2 block from the Medina. Hyde Park is about a 4 block walk. Fast food (McDonald's) about 2 blocks away with free wi-fi. Weather was great so we walked everywhere, even back to Circular Quay. The pub across the street had delicious yet reasonable dinner specials for around $15. Taxi rates from the Medina to the airport ran about $40-$50. We took the hotel shuttle bus (sign up 24 hours in advance) and paid about $12.00 per person. Yes, plan on about an hour to reach the airport as you stop at several other hotels along the way, but you get one final scenic ride through Sydney.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

We reused water bottles and brought boxes of single-serve flavored drink packets (Crystal Lite) to quench our thirst during the day. I partially froze them in the room refrige so they'd stay cold during the day. Exchange your currency at one of the many no-commission sites. A passenger on our cruise ship (Auck. to Syd.) suggested saving my souvenir shopping for Paddy's Market. She was right!

Convenient Location & Great Laundry Room

I had stayed at this same hotel 2 1/2 years ago with a friend, and this time with my husband. The apartment is spacious, with full kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom, and large bathroom with a separate laundry room attached. It was clean (except for the utterly filthy blinds in the kitchen window) and pretty well serviced. The location was great for getting around the CBD and within walking distance to Darling Harbor and the train station, with great city views, including the Tower and the QVB domes. Also, considering it was right in the city, the noise wasn't bad when the windows and balcony door were closed. On the downside, I woke up every morning with a backache and the pillows were awful. And, although the restaurant downstairs claimed it was open for all three meals, it was never open for dinner while we were there (10 days.) Our only other complaint would be that, although we arrived early (before 8 in the morning), they would not let us into our room before their scheduled check-in time of 2:30. They did, however, hold our luggage, and we just walked around the city for 6 1/2 hours...hot and tired, after having traveled a total of at least 24 hours. The staff was otherwise friendly and responsive to our requests. The one time we did go down to use the pool, there was some sort of business meeting being held right at poolside, so we left. We would definitely recommend the place, both for business and pleasure travelers, but maybe wait until their renovations are completed some time next year.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The wonderful French restaurant, La Guillotine, just about one block up Kent Street, was superb! One of the best dinners we had (among several disappointing ones)during our 2-week stay in Australia...but be prepared to pay. It cost us $100 for our two dinners, plus two beers and a glass of wine.
