Sydney Serviced Apartments

I'm looking at booking a 1 bedroom, serviced apartment in Sydney for 9 nights this coming February. Has anyone had experiences with the Meriton Rialto at 91-95 Liverpool Street (cnro of George and Liverpool Street) or Saville 2 Bond Street at the corner of George and Bond Streets? I'd like to know your impressions regarding the apartment itself as well as the location/neighborhood. Also, if anyone knows of any other apartments available for holiday rental, please share. I've reviewed all of the Meriton and Medina properties.

Thanks in advance!

Sydney Waldorf Apartment Hotel Woolloomooloo Waters Apartment Hotel.
My aunt & uncle always stay at Waldorf when they come to Sydney and find them excellent.

The Bond street Saville is in a much better location; 5 mins walk to Circular Quay; The Rocks; Wynyard Railway Station and is in the CBD. The Meriton Rialto is (IMHO) in a slightly seedy area of town.

Haven't stayed in either but use the Saville group in Melbourne & they're v.good.

Domain.com.au, Realestate.com.au, wotif.com.au all have holiday rentals.

Thanks for the feedback. I believe we'll go with Saville 2 Bond Street. I like the location and my company has really good negotiated rates.

Hi mjz,
We stayed at the Waldorf which is on Liverpool st and almost directly across the road from the Rialto, if my memory serves me correct. From the outside it looks very nice.
Location IMHO is pretty good a few mins walk from darling harbour very near the chinese gdns.
I wouldn't sya the area is seedy although we arrived at 11pm ish on a saturday night and it was very busy with all sorts of people looking for clubs etc.
There are a lot of restaurants there too.
The remaining days and nights were just fine.

The cost generally is better in this area and the walk to the OH is around 10-15 mins.

The Waldorf Liverpool st offered good value, it may be worth a look.

Good Luck

Muck

Hi Muck,
You're probably right; you know how it is - we're always more critical of our home-bases. What I think of as seedy might not appear that way at all to someone new to the area & not investing it with my prejudices/history.
Cheers, Bokhara

Hi Bokhara,
No probs mate, just my personal opinion, I speak as I find.
These things are always subjective. But your right we are always more critical of areas at home.

Cheers
Muck

Just in case anyone picks up on this thread in the future, the Meriton property on Liverpool is the World Tower. The Rialto is at Pitt and Bathurst.
