Great apartment if you are deaf!
Before I explain why I gave this location 2 stars I want to say that it was a beautiful apartment in a great location and the Property Manager did an excellent job of making our Checkin, Stay, and Checkout as seamless as possible.
Now to the bad part. Noise.
There is a restaurant directly across the street from the largest bedroom that has windows facing the apartment. 5 or 6 nights a week with their windows open, there was screaming and yelling until 2am. I'm told that it is a Mexican Restaurant and they ply their clients with tequila from the minute they sit down.
There are also 3 or 4 Rental Car agencies nearby and every morning starting as early as 4:30am a large truck or trucks would pull up outside the apartment and slam down their metal ramps and drive cars up onto the carrier. That also made loud clanging and banging noises and, again, this was directly outside the window. I have video documenting both of these nuisances if you doubt the veracity of my claims.
I feel bad about rating this unit so poorly but I had to sleep with Noise Cancelling Headsets on every night or I would be awakened by the trucks. This after putting up with hours of noise from the restaurant.

We are glad that you experienced such excellent service from our team during your stay. Regarding the noise issues that you experienced- it needs to be understood that this is inner city living . The apartment is 5 star and positioned to be in the heart of Sydney and close to CBD and all other conveniences and nightlife. With this location, it is inevitable that there will be some noise as opposed to an apartment in the suburbs that is away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney.
Excellent Brand New apartment, Great Location But Still Some Iss
Stayed here with my family over the Christmas period in Dec 11'. Apartment was brand new, mordern, spacious and contemporary. It was extremely comfortable for all of us. Designer furniture and a well equipped kitchen made the apartment look very sleek. It's conveniently located, within walking distance to Sydney's shopping areas at Georges Street/ Castlereagh Street and Oxford Street with Hyde Park literally located at your doorstep. The apartment is set over two levels, with the living and kitchen located on the main floor and bedrooms located on the lower level. While we were there, there was no direct access from the carpark to the apartment building (the apartment had its own designated lot). You had to walk through an alley to get to the front of the apartment complex. I understand that this issue will be resolved in due time. Also, we had only one set of keys instead of two sets usually given by the management. No information booklet/dosier was given to us and we were left to figure out our bearings, as tourists, on our own. Nonetheless, I've raised these issues to the management and was promised that they will be resolved. I've stayed at one of their apartments before and this to me, is an anomaly. I'm am sure however, that once all the teething problems have been ironed out, you would have a full five star experience.
