PERFECT location for exploring Sydney A review of Meriton Serviced Apartments Kent Street
We stayed at the newly opened Meriton on Kent last week for 5 nights.
Firstly the location is superb, everything was within walking distance: Darling Harbour; The Rocks; Oxford Street; city malls including QVB which was 5 mins away. Town Hall station - one of the main transfer stations for the rail network - was at the end of the block - how convenient!
Meriton Kent St is in the heart of the Spanish district, so you've got lots of lovely tapas bars on your doorstep.
The reception staff were friendly and obliging, 10 out of 10.
We had a spacious studio apartment that was very well appointed. Although we were on the 23rd floor, unfortunately the veiw from our (large) deck was of the back of other buildings.... another couple of floors up and we would've been able to see for miles. The kitchen was a little lacking when it came to utensils, this would have been more of an issue had we wanted to prepare anything other than breakfast.
The decor was lovely: modern and light.
Just along the street was a fabulous coffee shop (Bar Adyan??) that made perfect coffee & hot chocolate, and their toasted banana bread was to die for! We went there three times while staying at the Meriton, and on the third and final visit, the barista had already memorised our order - we felt like locals!!
Although the gym wasn't yet open, we were able to use the facilities at the Meriton World Tower, located a couple of minutes walk around the corner. The gym was on the 61st floor and looked right out to the Eastern beaches, the perfect distraction when working up a sweat.
All in all our stay was excellent, we would return to the Meriton Kent Street again because of the location, the general look and feel of the apartment, and the fact that once the gym and pool are open it'll cater for ALL our needs. Would highly reccommend.
