Located about 40 minutes drive away from the Kingsford Smith international airport in Sydney, the Silkari Suites Chatswood is a spacious, modern serviced apartment, conveniently located admist the self-contained town of Chatswood. Perfectly positioned, its location is near enough to the city centre, yet far enough away that it's removed from the hustle and bustle, and the crawling traffic jams of the city. Instead, Silkari Suites Chatswood benefits from its relaxing surroundings, and is suitable for both business and leisure travellers, especially those in groups.

Ambience at Silkari Suites Chatswood is clean, modern, functional, almost sleek. The polished, shiny marble decor lends an air of elegant sophistication, as do the modern furnishings with wavy, smooth lines. A large, plush teddy bear greets you at the entrance, along with warm complimentary muffins. Tucked away in a quiet street, the area is calm and unhurried. With its spacious, brightly lit corridors, the place looks huge.

Rooms at Silkari Suites Chatswood are the highlight. The spacious, brightly lit rooms are comfortable and cozy. Beds are large and soft, there is both a living area and dining area, as well as a fully equipped kitchenette. A combination washer and dryer is provided, though I find this not so efficient as a dryer. Bathrooms are clean, spacious, and stocked with bespoke bathing amenities, made with green tea. The dual televisions offer cable channels, as well as free movies which feature Australian stars.

Food at Silkari Suites Chatswood is non-existent, as the place does not have an in-house restaurant or cafe. Instead, staff are able to assist you to purchase food from nearby stalls around the area, but because it's so convenient, you're much better off going out to eat yourself, or cooking in with the fully equipped kitchenette within each apartment.

Service at Silkari Suites Chatswood is decent, if encountered. There was little need for us to interact with staff, but when we did, staff displayed professional, polite courtesy. They greeted us along the hallways, and were helpful with requests. The only drawback I experienced was with parking; we needed to draw a pass from the lobby staff, drive the car out, then return the pass, which is an inconvenient approach to parking. And this is on top of having to pay for parking. Otherwise, decent service standards here.

Facilities & Activities
The facilities and activities at Silkari Suites Chatswood are very limited. Despite marketing materials which mention a gymnasium, we discovered it has since been converted into a meeting room. Besides this, the only other facility here is their rooftop garden, which allows guests to hold barbecues, and offers a view of the small town of Chatswood. But where Silkari Suites Chatswood stands out is the close proximity to the town; there are shopping malls, schools, restaurants, bars, cafes, pharmacies, hospitals, churches, even a little Asia district, all within walking distance. And it's a short drive to the city centre of Sydney. Love the location, and the peaceful surroundings. Would return again if possible.
