Pullman Sydney Airport (Sydney, AUSTRALIA) ❤❤❤

This was going to be a very brief stay in Sydney for us; as a matter of fact, we will be in the city for less than 24 hours before catching another plane to Melbourne the next morning so I didn't see the value to stay in the city. A nice airport hotel would suit me just fine.

But here's the catch. Rydges is the only airport hotel in Sydney which is directly connected to the airport with all the hotels in Mascot being the next closest thing. And that's where I will be staying for the first night of this Aussie trip. 

I found myself staying more at the Pullman hotels these days. Perhaps the clean, sleek and modern décor has a little something to do with it.

I thought the room was pretty good but after putting two double beds in there, the space started to look a bit cramped.

We put an early check-in request in during our booking and the hotel was very accommodating to meet our humble request.

The bathroom looked rather spacious and visually, it's almost like the same size as the bedroom (Ok, I am exaggerating a bit.). A little odd.

There're quite a number of hotels in the same area, including Holiday Inn, Ibis among others but of course, this Pullman is in a different league.

While I like its modern chic décor, Pullman Sydney Airport didn't really tick all the boxes for me. On the good side, I thought the dining options (within the hotel) were good but service-wise, there's still room for improvement. Take the bell service for instance, when we first got into the hotel, the concierge guys took care of our luggage for us but they left those on their trolleys without offering to bring them upstairs following our check-in. It's minor incidents like these that've put a dent into an otherwise good experience.
