Situated in the heart of Sydney directly across from Darling Harbour, Metro Apartments Darling Harbour is a popular choice for discerning tourists from both at home and abroad eager to find comfortable, affordable accommodation located in close proximity to all major attractions.
Head west from your apartment and you’ll find yourself at King Street Wharf and Cockle Bay, popular precincts on the shores of Darling Harbour. Enjoy a cocktail in one of the many boutique bars, a meal in one of the harbourside restaurants, or a 3D movie at IMAX. Play tourist at Sydney Aquarium, Wildlife World or Australian Maritime Museum, or stroll across the footbridge to try your luck at The Star casino.
If you are looking for world-class shopping, walk east from your apartment and into Sydney’s retail heart, with the Queen Victoria Building, Westfield Sydney and flagship David Jones and Myer stores all a short stroll from your front door.
For unique Asian food and culture, head south to Sydney’s Little Japan, Little Korea and ThaiTown. Be sure to sample Yum Cha or a Chinese banquet from the huge array of restaurants in Sydney’s Chinatown, then keep walking through to the Entertainment Precinct and take in a show at the historic Capitol Theatre.
For sightseeing, head north beside the sandstone walls of the Hungry Mile and Barangaroo, recently marked for redevelopment. Stop at one of the beautiful harbourside cafes at Jones Street Wharf then continue around the harbour foreshore to The Rocks, a must to explore before venturing on to the Opera House and Botanic Gardens. This historic walk will show you the real Sydney but be warned – it is also popular for late-night ghost tours.
Located in two separate buildings in Sussex and King Streets, Metro Apartments Darling Harbour offers a selection of 40 one-bedroom apartments. While the Sussex Street building offers larger, contemporary-styled apartments with views over Darling Harbour, the King Street building has a more exclusive, intimate appeal.
With only nine apartments and a rooftop pool for the exclusive use of guests, King Street is perfect for those seeking a quiet getaway and the feel of being in a world class city with all the comforts of home. Stroll out onto your New York style private balcony to complete the picture and watch the cityscape below while contemplating your next direction.
All apartments are priced to be affordable for mid-week and weekend getaways in the city or for interstate guests wanting an extended stay in Sydney. Each apartment is appointed with a fully-equipped kitchen, washing machine, dryer and ironing facilities, air conditioning and heating. Parking is provided at a discounted rate at the nearby Kings Parking on Sussex Street.
