Meriton Kent St., Sydney: 4,396 reviews and 13 photos


Meriton is a name that will soon be synonymous with serviced apartments in Sydney that verge on the funky, above average comfortable side without being absurdly expensive. Suddenly, Meriton Apartments are everywhere near to the Town Hall. There's aprrox 5-6 new high-rise blocks of Meritons (lower floors offices or shopping malls, rooms higher up).

We experienced a studio apartment at Meriton Kent Street. It was stunning - 19th floor with balcony, marble floors, king size beds, heaps of space, brand new kitchen etc. (not all rooms have balcony). On the lower floors is a pool and spa with a sun terrace that was closed when we were there has they hadn't finished building it!

Unique Qualities: Great views over the city (although we were west-facing) to be had from the higher floors. We took advantage of a special offer with wotif - as it was a brand new building, they hadn't quite finished the complex. Only minor things (sunterrace/ spa in the pool area/ basement car park) were to be finished, so introductory price of AUD$165pn was excellent value.

Meriton Kent is in the Spanish quarter of the city - heaps of tapas bars 2 minutes walk - and very close to Chinatown and the World Square monorail. 10 minutes will get you to Centra Station. It's therefore not the most centrally located of hotels in Sydney, but its certainly one of the best apartment hotels I have stayed in. And the foyer/reception area is totally funky.
