- How to get there: a taxi from the airport will cost you 50AU$ + 2.5 AU$ for tolls. It's the easiest option (the airport link train costs 15 AU$ per person plus a taxi to the hotel; which means you'll be paying more or less the same price for a much less comfortable ride).

The apartments are impeccable and have all the accessories to make you feel at home, including a fully equipped kitchen and everything you need for doing the laundry. In addition the building has a heated indoor pool, a gym and a spa. From here, you can walk to all the major points of interest in Sydney.
