Good hotel - although rather dated decor. Amazingly comfortable beds. Right in the middle of the rocks with the markets right outside the door. Close to harbour bridge and a 10 min walk to circular quay train station. Great for a few nights or if taking a cruise from the overseas passenger terminal (more or less opposite ) SO much to do in the location. Prices we found where very cheap. especially since booked on a Saturday night. Room was good decent size - we had amazing view of the bridge. bathroom standard. Free wi-fi so that was a bonus

Dear Haydz85,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We were pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found the hotel to be good value for money. Our proximity to the Overseas Passenger Terminal and access to major public transport is a real plus for customers.

It's great that you had time to explore the weekend markets, they are a real highlight for many of our guests who stay with us over the weekend.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us, we hope to be able to welcome you back to the hotel again in the future.

Kind regards,

Rob & Team Holiday Inn Old Sydney

This hotel offers one of the best ever views from its roof-top terrace and pool area! Looking from The Rocks, you have a close view on the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, the bay area and the rest of the CBD skyline.

A very good hotel for both leisure and business guests. Whenever I'll come to Sydney for business again, I'll certainly stay at this hotel.

Stayed one night here for our "vivid" experience. The hotel is excellently located in the heart of the Rocks district and close to many major Sydney attractions, bars and restaurants around the harbour.
The hotel has a grand oppulent open foyer which is very inviting and a great place to sit by the open fire and enjoy a coffee or drink.
The staff are friendly and accomadating. Our stay coincided with our 25th Anniversary but unfortunately at time of check in no special attention was made to us and the only acknowledment from staff was a card from the manager slipped under the door. A little more personal touch on this occasion would have been nice.
The rooms unfortubately are in need of an urgent upgrade in decor as they were very bland in furnishings. However the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was extremely small and is also in need of upgrading.
The view from the room only offered an aerial sight of the Rocks district but the views from the corridor and the roof top pool were breathtaking looking over the harbour, sydney opera house and city skyline as well as the bridge.
The buffet breakfast was good value and set in the upper level of the foyer overlooking the entrance.
The price of the hotel was reasonable considering its location but I think the need for room renovations left our stay slightly disappointing.

Dear PaulR74_13,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel over the recent Vivid festival. Congratulations on celebrating your 25th wedding anniversary. We apologise that we didn't do more on your special evening to help you celebrate. We usually go to great lengths to 'wow' our customers and we are sorry that we let you down. Thank you for your kind words about our staff and our breakfast offering.

We acknowledge your constructive feedback in relation to the décor in the hotel. The team here are working hard on our hotel maintenance program as well as several projects which are currently being rolled out or about to occur.

We are glad that you enjoyed the fireplace in our lobby, it's a great place to have a drink on a winter evening.

Thank you once again for your feedback, wishing you a very happy 2014.

Please accept our apologies.

Kind regards,

Rob & Team Holiday Inn Old Sydney

Staff is great, location is superb. Food is wonderful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Walking distance to all the major sights. Outdoor market on weekends that great. wonderful street food at the market. Great value. The breakfast buffet is to die for.

Room Tip: They have an outdoor market that sets up right next to the hotel on weekends, thats amazing. Walking distance to everything.
