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! Add eight conference rooms, a foot-friendly downtown address and a pool and this renovated hotel starts to shine. Central Station is located around the corner from the hotel for those traveling by train.   

Rooms

Each of the hotel's 517 rooms applies geometric principles to design. Think sleek blonde wood paneling and pillows of all sizes splashed with reds and greens outfitting hotel beds. Rooms also feature mood lighting, comfortable desks with high-speed Internet access (fees apply), air conditioning, mini-fridge and understated bathrooms.

Property 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. The breakfast buffet is an enormous spread and kids under 15 eat free. The bar serves light lunches, snacks and loose-leaf tea and coffee.

The hotel offers room service and has a car rental agency onsite, plus parking (fees apply) and Internet access (fees apply).

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.

Geo's Review of the Mercure Sydney

Staff is great, helpful in every way. Noise from hall and adjacent room was occasionally bothersome. Bathroom functional, but a bit dated. Location was great - near both rail and bus lines reaching all over the city. I would stay here again, and recommend it to others.

great overall

Experience a few glitches during check-in as the hotel doesn't have the record of what type of room I booked. I've booked a deluxe room but they end up give me regular room which I have to go down to reception and change it. Thanks for the "team lead" who dealt with me and she changed it to a huge room which consists of 2 double beds and 360 degrees of view. Excellent value. The worst part is internet access which there is no free internet.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Very short walk to central station that can get you to anywhere. A bit longer walk to free shuttle. Good distance to chinatown. Beware of one way drive in downtown as this hotel is at the corner of 2 roads.

The visit Down Under, reasonably priced

The staff were more than helpful. They were exceptionally pleasant. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The location was walkable to all attractions and very convenient to buses and trains.

Fabulous Hotel

The only thing we didn't like about this hotel was the location. It was a pretty far walk to the harbours. But there were plenty of coffee shops and restaurants nearby. Bus stations and train stations were right outside the hotel. The service was fabulous and the concierges were very helpful with airport shuttles, tours, and restaurants.

Solid choice

This hotel is clean, centrally located, and quiet enough (we were on a high floor in the back of the building). The concierge was helpful, and the pool has a great view.
