                    Typical hotel in Mercure chain - you know what to expect, rooms, service and restaurant are fine, but nothing special. What is really special about this one in localization. It's perfect, next to central rail station and few minutes walk from The Rocks, cbd and Circle Wharf. Guys from concierge are really helpful.

                    Bit pricey, like everything in Sydney.

                    The location of Mercure Sydney is pretty good. It is near Railway Square- a public transport hub. Located on George Street, it is convenient for me to walk to Sydney cbd area.

                    The room facilities of the hotel are pretty poor. The keycard is tricky to use: You cannot swipe the card through the slot either too fast nor too slowly, otherwise you cannot open the door. The mini hair drier stopped working every few seconds due to overheated protection. Therefore, it takes you forever to blow your hair dry.The room service is dissapointing as well: The housekeeping staff didn't clean my room at all even after I called housekeeping service.

                    the location is very handy for getting to and from the airport. the staff were great.

                    slight gripe about the room and as this was a newly renovated room it might still be unfinished. but, there was a strong draft under from under the door. my room was quite small so this draft was ever present. this gap under the door also aided noise to travel freely from the corridors. however, it appeared to be nearly renovated and perhaps they are yet to address this small issue.

                    I like the location, it is close to Tram station and to George street.

                    There is one thing, I do not like it in the hotel, in the reception area, there is a bad smell, it is like sewage smell.

                    The location was great - right next to Central station and easy to get around the city and elsewhere. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff were friendly.

                    The pool was small and an odd shape and it was difficult to swim in if there were more than two people in it. Having said that it was never very busy.

                    Proximity to Central Railway Station with availability of transport to Sydney Airport at reasonable cost.

                    Our stay at the Mercure Sydney, gave us the convenience of being near the train, and bus terminals. The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay not only in Sydney, but at the Mercure Sydney. Thankyou.

                    The staff helped us solve a problem about the type of room we had booked. There was no fuss, and the slight difference did not attract an extra charge. We also had a problem in that the hotel did not at first have a record of our pre-payment, but that was cleared up very quickly.

                    A "toilet" smell in the lobby - over two days.

                    Really good location with central station at you door step. Warm welcome and very attentive staff which made our stay a pleasure. Two individual queensized beds of very good quality for a good nights sleep. The room was quite small but big enough for two and also reflected in the room rates, so nothing to complain about. It's surprisingly quiet for the location. We enjoyed our stay very much, thank you

                    The only thing to complain about would be the bathroom which was outdated and a bit shabby. The grouting was partly discoloured and seemed on some spots dusty.had only a bath with a showerhead and would have prefered a proper shower however water was high pressure and hot.

                    The staff were very friendly and welcoming, in particular the concierge.

                    I felt that in general the hotel room was very clean but thought the bathroom shower could have been nicer, it was slightly disappointing. However it wouldn't stop me from staying here again or recommending to others.

                    The location was superb, just 5 minutes walk from the Central Station. The staff was very helpful and practical. The receptionist was successfully managed to get me a room that I requested: city view, non smoking, away from the elevators. One of the concierge helped me call 3 massage places to ask for their operating hours, afterwards he happily showed me directions and how to get around. There's a chain cafe right in front of the hotel serving really great pies and coffee. The 24 hrs convenient store next to, and the open-till-midnight cafes/chain restaurants just across the hotel are also plus points for me.

                    We chose Mercure Sydney because it was close to the Entertainment Centre and China Town as we watched a concert that night we stayed. It was comfortable and nice to get away for the night!

                    I was disappointed with the buffet breakfast, I thought there would of been alot more variety. A 10.30am finish would also be better. Maybe provide instructions on how to use the coffee machine or have someone make proper coffee when you arrive.
