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.

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.

Beautiful pool views

Mercure Sydney was a special hotel not because of the location, which is alright but not stellar, and certainly not because of ease of access (it took 3 times around the block to finally find the entrance to the hotel). The room was average, though it could have been cleaner. The bed was comfortable and it's always nice to have a fridge and real glasses as well as tea/coffee maker in the room. The pool and exercise area are fantastic, if only for the views. The area is on top of the hotel, completely enclosed with big window and, especially the viewing area around the end of the pool, was not too brightly lit allowing for wonderful night (and day) views of the city. Always a nice touch in any hotel :) The fact that the area is open 24 hours is an additional plus!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Just a quick note, dining possibilities nearby drop dramatically after 7pm. We were stuck eating fast food as most of the other restaurants were closed. However, for those willing to walk a bit further the possibilities are seemingly endless.

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.
