airport to the rocks


family of five arriving 10:30pm on a Monday night looking for most efficient but cost effective way to hotel in the Rocks area.

we know the train is fast,but at that time maybe a taxi would be best b/c it would be door to door and at that time traffic should not be that bad?

what should we do.

if by train we would have to pay 5 tickets and haul luggage and still walk 10 minutes plus to the hotel

thank you for suggestions

No contest.

Absolutely a Maxi Taxi. The taxi rank supervisor at the airport will organise it for you.

Another vote for a maxi taxi - very easy to get from the taxi rank.

Taxi beyond any doubt. Many hotels in The Rocks are a steep climb and you won't want to be hauling luggage if you do get the train to Circular Quay.

Taxi! After all that travel, there are other days and ways to try to spend less. :)
