Perks for kids and adults in Sydney’s city center

The award-winning Mercure Sydney was recently repackaged to cater to families and business travelers. The hotel has a fresh, modern look with plenty of perks for a mid-range hotel--kids under 15 stay and eat breakfast free!

Central Station is located around the corner from the hotel for those traveling by train.   

Highlights
  • Kids stay and eat breakfast free

Features

The hotel features a gym and indoor heated rooftop pool for everyone's fitness and entertainment needs.

The sustainable Four Elements Restaurant serves breakfast and attracts a theater crowd for dinner. Items like Hunter Gold grain-fed scotch fillet please sophisticated palates.

Great hotel, great location!

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Mercure. Everything is clean, bright, modern and busy! The pool is small but perfect for a morning swim, and a nice workout room is handy. The best part of our stay outside of the comfort of the room was the location. We were near buses, trains, and cafes all just a block away! The concierge staff was super amazing. All were knowledgeable, helpful, and took their time to explain where things were and how to get around. Jim was awesome in helping us get to the zoo! Thank you all for a wonderful visit!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the 555 bus to the Rocks. It's free and comes every 10-15 min. It only runs until 3:45 or so, but it's very easy! Goes right up George St. to Circular Quay.

Nice place!

Located right at the Central Station stop, it was convenient to access the entire city (not to mention the airport). The room was very nice and they have a pillow menu that made our sleep more comfortable.

There are a couple of really good coffee places right down the street (Gloria Jean's is one and the other is right next to it) for breakfast... much cheaper than the hotel restaurant.

Anniversary Getaway

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mercure. We arrived super early and were given the option to upgrade for $20 a night for a room with a view. We thought it was worth it as the view was beautiful and even better we were able to check in at 7:30 am rather than having to wait until 2pm. That was great after our long flight! The room was comfortable and the hotel was in walking distance to the central train station which goes anywhere you need to go. There was also a little breakfast place out back that was great! The staff were friendly and helpful as well. The restaurant was not very impressive and while the bar had a pizza night with specials when we went for a later night snack at 9pm they were sold out. Overall we had a great visit and would highly recommend this hotel to other travelers.

Meh

This hotel was great, for me. There were some problems that might bother others, though. Notably, the bathroom towels did not seem to be collected daily, and services that are usually complementary were charged to my room: breakfast and internet access.
