Cons: 1 dining room chair was broken and the freezer badly needed defrosting so it was not usable 2) great location - pros: within walking distance of Opera House, art gallery, botanic gardens and grocery/liquor store and restaurants. Great view of the city and can see the harbour from the balcony. In a nice and safe part of town. Cons: none 3) Host/staff - they were very accommodating and we were able to check in early after a long flight from Canada. Thanks. Would return and rent this apartment if ever back in Sydney. Highly recommended.
