Clean & comfortable. Perfect location for anyone considering a cruise out of the rocks. We were able to simply wheel our suitcases down to baggage drop at cruise port in less than 5 minutes. Rooms a bit old and dates for the price however you can't beat the location. Breakfast was really nice too, it was a great bonus to have a juicer in the breakfast bar!!!

Dear TravelBugs77,

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 our location to be very convenient to the Overseas Passenger Terminal. It certainly takes a lot of stress out of a holiday when you don't have to rush for transport to your embarkation point.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us, we trust that you enjoyed your cruise.

Kind regards,

Rob & Team Holiday Inn Old Sydney

Located in "the Rocks" within walking distance to Opera House, the ferry pier, many great restaurants and pubs. Actually, a perfect location and the reason we selected the hotel. Older historic type of building with a lovely lobby and fabulous staff. The room, however was very Spartan and needed updating. The bathroom had mildew/mold build-up around the sink and also needed modernization.

Stayed for three nights in June for the State of Origin. Had friendly and attentive staff from check in to check out as well as all the touches you expect from a Holiday Inn. Housekeeping did a great job servicing the room each day and was very surprised how quiet the room was. Great location at the Rocks too. Would definitely stay again

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.
