I'll be honest, if you're looking for a 5 star hotel, this is not it. However, it doesn't claim to be that either! Instead, what you get is a decent sized room with all the things you can need - bed, drawers, wardrobe, TV, table,...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
