Reception employee at Vibe Rushcutter's Bay was efficient, friendly and helpful. The Medina is well-located for shops, cafes, restaurants and the amenities of the Eastern bays. The 2 bedroom ground floor apartment was large, well laid out, clean but dark. Three things really detracted from our stay. 1. Noise - street and traffic noise is constant and the apartment windows are not acoustically reinforced. Apartment 4 is on the ground floor and footfalls and plumbing noises from the upstairs apartment can be heard in the main bedroom. The courtyard is not practical nor private given the level of pedestrian and street traffic. 2. Dank odour - there is a mouldy, dank odour in the apartment. It's probably due to old carpets, its ground floor location and insufficient light. 3. No separate shower. The lobby is also a bit of a shambles with cleaning equipment and bits of furnishing sitting around. Overall, its not good value for money. The complex needs an overhaul.
