We had four great nights at the Holiday Inn Old Sydney. The room was spacious and clean, and the bed comfortable. The view from the roof is fabulous and the breakfast is good value - we loved the juice maker and the scrambled eggs.

We are currently staying here and feel compelled to write a review now- instead of later. Rooms are clean and comfortable, no frills- but we are certainly not paying for frills in the great rate. Very affordable and very central- without being surrounded by traffic and hussle and bussle! The building itself is quite peculiar and interesting. We are in... More

In terms of views this is by fair the best hotel in world I have stayed in. What more of a hotel do you want which has a hot tub and swimming pool on top of its roof which overlooks the Sydney Opera House. Absolutely stunning and is a culmination of what dreams are made of.

The hotel is located at the rocks area, it's nice if you want to see weekend market since it's right next door however it's quite far from city central. It's near ferry terminal and Sydney Opera house, it's at walking distance. It is surrounded by mid to upscale restaurant with the cost of main course ranging around USD20-35. McD and... More

For years now, every time I visit Sydney I wonder what the Holiday Inn Old Sydney is like but had never stayed. Until now and I am pleased to report it is a great hotel.

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... More

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.
