taniar645 13/01/2022 TripAdvisor review

My stay was very comfortable. The room was very spacious, with a lovely view over the city. I dined at the bar, which was very nice. All staff were very nice and friendly. I had flown to sydney and caught the train from the airport. The Hotel is located right alongside Central Station.

Great staff

Grant W 10/01/2022 TripAdvisor review

I was phoned the day before by George and asked if I really wanted two double beds. I said no I had booked that room because it was a red hot room and cheap. I was upgraded. Eva at check in was really nice said she remembered me from before they were a quarantine hotel. This was about my 12th stay. Breakfast was great served at your table.

Great location, accommodation and service

Lovely room that has been updated since our last stay a couple of years ago. Was upgraded to the deluxe suite which was lovely. Had some drinks at happy hour at Eve's Bar. Would definitely stay again especially when Restaurant 181 reopens soon.

We always enjoy staying at the Mercure Central. The staff are excellent - helpful and friendly, both in the hotel and the restaurant/bar. We are Accor members and always get a good rate, a lovely room and usually an early check-in. We always enjoy our stay.

One of the best

Great service by the staff. Treated exceedingly wonderfully as Accor member especially their thoughtfulness with breakfast. Comfy bed & design. Great location next to Central Station & buses. Level 1 is lovely.

David W 09/08/2020 TripAdvisor review

Have stayed here many times and again came through even in these uncertain times. Brilliant location with buses at thefront door or a short walk via the subway underpass to Central station and Chalmers street for the trams to Randwick or the Quay Thr staff are masked up and doing the right thing as we were. The Platform 818 meal with truffle was brilliant You can expect breakfast in a box in your room but there is no way around the magnificent buffet generally provided given these times. We had a beautiful room provided and we will be back.

Fabulous Service

We have stayed at the Mercure on several occasions and it is always good but this stay was beyond great. The staff went over and above to make our stay special in these unusual times. Everyone from the reception to the bar were extremely professional with their safe practices. Lovely room, great location. We will be back.

TaniaSydney59 Business - 13/07/2020 TripAdvisor review

Clean and tidy and very central. Love the fact there is no bath to step into to have a shower. Enjoying the renovated rooms. Bed and sheets are great. Will be great when there are more options for the meals. Only minus is that the TV faces the bed - I like to watch sitting up, not from bed.

Dear TaniaSydney59, Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear you had you had a great experience with us and your feedback has been taken on board. We look forward to welcoming you back when next you visit Sydney. Kind regards, Daniel Barnard General Manager

First hotel stay since, well, you know what. The rooms were newly renovated and had everything that was needed. Most importantly, the staff were wonderful, as has been our experience previously, but with the recent shutdowns, there seemed to be that bit more. A lovely time. Thank you.

Dear MCx111, Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed our brand new hotel rooms and hope to see you again soon when you visit us next. Kind regards, Daniel Barnard General Manager Mercure Sydney

Lorraine S 10/06/2020 TripAdvisor review

My husband and I had an eight night stay at Mercure Central recently while I had surgery in Sydney. The hotel was not busy because of the virus. We booked a premium room as we were staying for a longer time. The noise from the room above was awful, banging etc and at one stage so loud and awful it forced the opening of the return air and airconditioning pipes open! The room was not as clean as it could have been, dirty greasy footprints on the tiles and even eight nights later it was still there, as was the chewing gum (?) or whatever it was on the carpet. A pity as we love this hotel and will stay here again because of the friendly staff and the convenience of location.

Dear Lorraine S, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am sorry that on this occasion your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. Please rest assured our Operations Manager has followed up with your concerns to prevent any future occurence. I appreciate you sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Kind regards, Daniel Barnard General Manager

Landd Couples - 03/04/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We arrived at the Mercure Sydney three days after the city had been put into lockdown due to COVID-19. Unfortunately we could not use any of the restaurants or facilities outside of our room, but we'd booked a very spacious corner room with a nice view and made good use of that. It was a stressful time for the entire community, particularly staff in hospitality. Adam, a member of the concierge team, went out of his way to check our flight home was still operating, and make sure our transfer from hotel to airport took place. In fact, all the staff with whom we interacted - from a safe distance of course! - were friendly and efficient. This made a huge difference. We also appreciated the hotel revamping its room service menu, deleting the delivery charge and making the menu more appealing for guests who had no option than to be inside their rooms. A round of complimentary drinks and snacks also made us feel 'wanted'. Prior to our stay at the Mercure we'd spent three nights at a hotel close to the international cruise terminal. (Originally we were to board a cruise ship.) This hotel was almost twice the price of the Mercure. Sure, the view there was magnificent, but staff were nowhere as helpful as the Mercure Sydney. Some times a five star hotel does not offer a five star experience. We much preferred the Mercure.

I can't wait for my next visit, hopefully for pleasure and not business :)

On this occasion it was a little bit eerie. Normally hotel is packed but this time understandably it wasn't as the Covid 19 was upsetting things!
