Gym is outdated but functional. Otherwise, everything was great.

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.

good overall

I went to Sydney for sightseeing. This was good for that purpose because of the central location.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
