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! 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.   

Highlights
  • Kids stay and eat breakfast free
  • Downtown location within walking distance to major attractions
  • Eight conference rooms
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.

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).

Ideal Location

The staff at the Mercure are friendly and efficient, hey will help you with any enquiries you have about the Sydney area. The Mercure is walking distance to Central Railway and Sydney Bus Terminal. It is a short walk to a some of the amenities Sydney has to offer, Darling Harbour, China town and some of the theatres. It is also a short bus ride to the others, Opera House, Harbour bridge and shopping malls.

They got my name wrong

For some reason, they registered my name wrongly, however, that was cleared up pretty fast. The staff was helpful and the housekeepers were AMAZING! Everything was kept clean and neat. The walls, however, were quite thin, and we could hear the next door guests going in and out of their rooms as well as the toilet flushing.

Location is the main plus about

Location is the main plus about this hotel. Cant get much closer to Central station. Clean enough, bed comfortable enough, however the room is pretty basic for the price. Staff were pleasant enough, on a busy night. A non-smoking room was requested and confirmed at check in, however the room smelled of smoke, even in the bed in the early hours of the morning. Had room service dinner, it was delivered without cutlery, had to wait another 15 mins for that to come. will try another hotel next time.
