GREAT CONDO IN SYDNEY

  • 4 of 5
We spent 5 nights at The Top of the Town and found it to be a convenient location to exploring Sydney. You do have quite a walk to the Harbor, The Rocks and several parks, but Sydney is large.

The condo is in the King's Cross area and the subway is a block away. Coles Supermarket is across the street and has everything you need for dining in. We found the area safe.

The condo building is secure and has a concierge 24 hrs/day. Always very courteous and helpful. The condo was just the right size for the two of us. The bed was very comfortable and the furnishings were in very good shape. Never figured out how to use the oven, but Stephen, the owner, who lives in the building, was very responsive when I couldn't figure out the cooktop and how to work the balcony louvers. It is very quiet when the balcony doors are closed- a great feature in a major city. Stephen did mention they plan to renovate by removing the louver panels and installing soundproof glass. That would give you a great view of downtown Sydney. They are also planning to add black out drapes which would help late sleepers.

Would definitely recommend this condo. If you have the time, explore some of the neighborhoods around the area. Very eclectic and the parks are a great respite. Stephen and Toni recommended restaurants in the area and were great to work with through the entire process.

GREAT KINGS CROSS APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for 4 nights after a cruise that ended in Sydney and enjoyed it very much. This apartment was well equipped with everything you could need. Nice furnishings that were comfortable to sit on inside but the chairs on the patio were a bit wobbly. Large unit. We had 3 adults in the unit and had plenty of room. We cooked in every night to save money and the only kitchen item lacking was an ice cream scoop. Owners were very responsive to questions before and after we booked the unit. Location was convenient to trains and buses, grocery store was just down the block and there were plenty of cafes to choose from nearby if you wanted to eat out. Reasons I am not giving 5 stars are, there was a lot of traffic noise if you opened the balcony door for fresh air, so we kept it closed and the air conditioning on. The bathroom floor tile grout looked in need of a good scrubbing, but other than that the unit was very clean, and would have liked to have a couple of suitcase stands to put our luggage on. I would highly recommend the unit to anyone visiting Sydney.

BRILLIANT LOCATION, CLEAN AND COSY ACCOMMODATION

  • 4 of 5
We had a fabulous weekend. The location is superb and the apartment is very accessible to some great bars, cafes, pubs and other attractions. Getting around was really easy and the apartment made a great base.

Door staff were friendly and helpful. The complex is not huge and we never had to wait for an elevator.

The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was furnished in a lovely fashion and had all the creature comforts. The bed was super comfy and the bed furnishings were great quality.

There were plenty of provisions, including some things we didn't really expect (lots of condiments, paper towels, cleaning products, power boards, USB adaptors etc).

If I have to state a couple of negatives... the fixed louvres on the patio weren't adjustable and it made the balcony feel a bit like a gaol. Some block-out blinds would have been welcome when trying to sleep in after a couple of big nights out. Also, the extraction fan in the bathroom doesn't seem to work (which is not so great the morning after one of the fabulous currys from across the road).

Negatives aside (and they were far outweighed by the positives!), it was a lovely stay!

I would recommend the apartment to anyone. The only regret is we didn't get to give the sauna and plunge-pool a go.

Thanks again!

WE ARE BLOWN AWAY, JUST LIKE BEING AT HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was the end of a 25 day trip and after all that time we were a bit frazzled. We felt like we had come home, comfortable bed, living room TV, great internet, even basic condiments in the fridge and cabinets. We did not cook but did make breakfast every day in the excellent kitchen. We had wine and cheese every night on the terrace overlooking the city. We washed our clothes in the in unit washer dryer and generally unwound. That said, we were only a block from the Kings Cross railroad station and the hop on hop off bus. We even walked from Paddy's Market in Chinatown back to the apartment (not recommended unless you really like to walk). Even though we only spread the cleaning fee over 3 days, our cost per day was less than the Holiday Inn or the Mercure one block away. The owners have posted some very good picture and if anything they do not do it justice. It is even better than what you see. We ate at restaurants in the neighborhood all 3 nights and were satisfied each time. We splurged on TasteVin, directly across the street on our last nigh and it was great. Everything was clean and functioned as expected. We could have stayed here a month.

Owner's Response: Hi Frank
Thank you for your kind review and for taking the time to write it. I must admit that your walk from China Town to the apartment is a good walk. Taste de vin is also my favourite French Restraunt in the neighbour hood.

Safe travels

Stephen and Toni.

GREAT VIEW AND CONVENIENT LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
Great location! Darlinghurst has amazing restaurants! Being so close to Kings Cross was great since it rained the entire time we were in Sydney. As well, free Wi-Fi was appreciated so much!
Thank you!

FANTASTIC APARTMENT, PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Leading up to my stay, the owners were very helpful and responsive. Although check-in isn't allowed until the later afternoon, I was able to arrange to leave my luggage with the concierge at the front desk. The apartment itself is perfect for 1 or 2 persons. It has every amenity a person could want and is very comfortable. The location is nearly unbeatable. Very short walk to the King's Cross Station, and the street is lined with interesting, excellent restaurants and stores (including the one of the best gelato places I've ever tried, called Messina). It's easy to take the train to the CBD or to other interesting parts of Sydney (e.g., Newtown, Redfern, Parramatta). There are two excellent aboriginal art galleries nearby (The Artery) and (Aboriginal Art Prints). The view of the CBD from the apartment is good, but the view from the exercise room on the 6th floor is phenomenal -- you can see the full sweep of downtown, from the opera house to the harbour bridge and the CBD. At night the view is breathtaking. Even if you don't exercise, don't miss it. I left the apartment in good shape and the owners very quickly refunded my damage deposit. There really is nothing negative to say about this Top of the Town apartment. I will definitely try to stay there again when I return to Sydney sometime in the future.
