Hair of the Dog (and my 35th Birthday) You don't have to be a member do MENSA to work out there would be a few bleary eyes today. Myself, Hunty, Vikki and Chris had a bit of a lazy morning today. Not wanting to move too much, too quickly, I opted for sitting out on the balcony 48 floors skywards for the remainder of the morning and early afternoon …
An Operatic Display of Excellence Garves and a few of the wedding party had a rehearsal to go to. The rest of us, which was by now was a group of around 10, strolled down towards Sydney Harbour, via Darling Harbour, which in itself is a pretty spectacular place. Accordingly expensive for where it is, but fantastic in every way. There's the maritime …
I woke to glorious sunshine and decided it was definitely time to hit a beach. After making my breakfast I headed down to the wharf and hopped on the ferry to Manly. The ferry was heaving with people and I had to stand up for the entire 30 minute journey, but this was okay because you don't mind hanging over the side railings feeling the wind in …
Well, I pulled back my curtains and was dismayed to still see grey murk outside. Oh no!!! But the radio assured me that the sun was going to show itself at some point so I wondered what to do with myself. I had gained an unexpected day off and was going to go to the beach, but thought as it wasn't all that sunny I would go to the zoo instead. I …
We arrived in Sydney bang on the scheduled time, so clearly we must have had a good tailwind. I was kinda disappointed, because I knew I couldn't check in to my apartment until 2pm and that meant I had 7.5hrs to kill. Ergh. I decided to waste some time by having breakfast at the airport – the plane food had been pretty grim so I hadn’t …

Historical Traveler Reviews Meriton Serviced Apartments Pitt Street Sydney
Great Accomodations in terrific location
We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of our Australia journey and it was a perfect choice. It is less a hotel than an apartment building so don't expect a luxurious lobby, but the apartments are spacious with a full kitchen and there are two bathrooms. The master bath was particularly nice with an oversized jacuzzi style tub and separate shower. The beds were very comfortable and the place was spotless. There are no views if you are expecting one (at least from our apartment), but we were looking for a clean, centrally located place to lay our heads at the end of a long day of sight seeing and this fit the bill.
What's more it was downtown within walking distance of many attractions. Very nice, especially for a family looking for a little room to spread out.
Stayed here for 3 nights in August taking advantage of the 'three nights for the price of two' offer. The apartments are spacious and clean and well equipped with cooking and washing facilities. Our apartment on the 21st floor had a terrible view of the office block next door only a few metres away. I would guess you would need to be on at least floor level 23 to have a decent view. The swimming pool on floor 13 was freezing cold. If you arrive early before the 2pm check-in time there is a secure room near reception where your bags can be stored. Good for the price and not too far from all the sights of Sydney.
Wonderful home away from home!
We are a family of 6 who made a 4 night and a 2 night stay in August. The 3 bedroom apartment cost less than 2 hotel rooms (our last stay was an even better deal). With 2 bathrooms, a comfortable living room, well-stocked kitchen, big dining table, cute balcony and superb views, it was a great place for us to recover from jet lag and explore the city. The staff was helpful. The Woolworth with groceries just around the corner and the train and monorail stations within a block, as well as Hyde Park close for running of the kid's steam made a huge difference in our experience of traveling halfway across the world with 4 kids under age 9. Thanks for the reviews which helped me choose to book this!
Five of us stayed in a two bedroom apartment on the 8th July for a few nights. The size and layout of the apartment was fabulous. We got a great deal - stay three nights pay for two. Location couldn't be better. It is a short walk to Central Station. The monorail station is on the next block. Close to Chinatown restaurants, Pitt Street Mall, $6 taxi to The Rocks. Only a couple of criticisms - the bed was rock-hard! I like a firm bed, but the one we had at the Rialto was ridiculous. It was like sleeping on a slab and you could feel the springs sticking up through it. After three nights I'm in need of some chiropractic work. There wasn't enough crockery or cutlery - they only provided a setting for four in an apartment for five. The lifts at around 10am are impossible. We waited for about fifteen minutes to catch a lift to the lobby. We would have walked down the stairs were it not for my elderly father and his heart. Tip: press the lift button for both directions - take a ride up so it's not full by the time it gets back down to your floor. On a more positive note - the showers were awesome, staff at the front desk were helpful and efficient and security excellent. I will definitely stay here again but may ask for a different room if I have the same hard bed!
This place was awesome! Best place to stay with a family. We are a family of 5. Most hotels only hold 3 people per room. I could go on and on how great this place was...... We had a two bedroom apartment. The beds were all king size. They did not have cribs, but you can rent them from a local company that will deliver the crib to the hotel the day you arrive.
When we arrived the room we were given flooded after having a shower. A ring to reception resulted in us beening upgraded to the penthouse. Wow!!!! The place was fantastic the views of the city were incredible. I can not fault the place and so convenient for all the city sights.
We just spent 5 nights at the Meriton Rialto and really enjoyed the experience. I found it on Expedia and booked it as an air/room package deal ($US 2,200 from HNL to SYD for 2 adults), not entirely sure what it would be like. Walking over from Museum train stop, I thought maybe it was a mistake. The neighborhood is commercial/offices and the lobby is very unremarkable. We were, however, pleasantly surprised to receive an upgrade from a 1 bed to a 2bed/2bath Harbour View Room (#165) on the 49th floor. It was fabulous. Very clean, very spacious with high ceilings and full height sliding glass doors along the entire front side (North). While the complex was full during our stay, we never heard other guests and almost never saw any. Unlike other reviewers, our air conditioning worked great and was quiet. Housekeeping was great, we never saw or had to call them even though our schedule leaving the apartment each day varied. The beds were comfortable and the linens of decent quality. You could pay the same or more for a modest hotel room, but with a kitchen, living room, large bedroom, laundry in room, you have much more comfort and more options. There were two things that could have been better. 1) The sofa (which is a pullout) was not very comfy for lounging. 2) This (fairly) luxury apartment only had one television. Not that t.v is that important, but I found myself moving it from the bedroom to the living room each day, because at night I like to watch a little before sleeping, comfy from my bed. And in the day/evening it is more enjoyable to watch from the living room. We stocked our groceries from Woolworth's, located around the corner and open daily from 6am-midnight. Town Hall and Museum train stops are very close and it is an easy walk to Hyde Park, Darling Harbour, Chinatown. We enjoyed the apartment so much we never even went to the pool/gym/sauna. We didn't find the front desk staff very helpful, but they were certainly friendly and accommodating.
If you can get a good deal on the internet then these apartments aren't bad.
We (a family of three adults) stayed for 5 days just after the new year (2005). We booked through Meriton's own web site. We would have give it a 5 star rating if not for the following..
Stayed here one night in late Dec (wish i stayed longer!)- got a great deal just over $100 in a studio apartment on a last minute website. Studio Rooms are perfect for 2 people - very modern, great decor, comfy bed. Room was on the 24th floor - not a great view just of office buildings etc but i didnt mind. I believe the apartments are nearly new - probably just under a year old perhaps. I was looking around for other accommodation - ie Holiday Inn & Accor hotels - all just very basic hotel rooms for $180 plus and I am certainly pleased with this great deal I got for a studio apartment - pretty much brand new for much cheaper!
