We stayed here in March and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a great location at the rocks. Our room at the back side of the hotel was pretty quiet and the roof top pool has a great view when the tourist ships are not at the dock. The staff were courteous and we managed to check in early... More

We stayed two nights at HI Old Sydney after our cruise on the Radiance. As mentioned in previous reviews, the location is great with easy access from the terminal. We arrived at around 9:30am after debarkation, a little early for check-in but they were able to find two rooms on the 4th floor for us. Kind of disappointed that even... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of March, and really liked this hotel. It's in a great location in the Rocks, close to some lovely shops, cafes, restaurants and the market. And it's just a short walk to the most beautiful harbour in the world! We arrived at about 7.30am and were given a room within a... More

We spent three nights here on route to Brisbane from Singapore. We arrived at 7am obviously too early to check in but the staff did offer us a different room but we decided to have a walk round and wait for our chosen upper floor front opera house view. The room was worth the wait spacious, clean and very quiet.... More

We chose the Holiday Inn as it is across from the Overseas Passenger Terminal for cruises. We chose to arrive a day before cruise departure. We had an excellent room 820 with a view of our ship docking ...made it all the more exciting. We arrived a little early so we went off for lunch on the Waterfront docks .... More

This hotel is quite basic in the room amenities but makes up for it with the great location within 5 minutes walk to the opera house and the Bay Bridge. Restaurants, bars and shops within 1 minute walk - plenty of choice. The view from the roof terrace pool is amazing. The staff are also very helpful and attentive. Would... More

It's a chain hotel, but it sure doesn't act like one. Not only is the location excellent, and the building historically interesting, but the staff is exceptionally helpful. A woman at the desk made some copies for me, at no charge. (When does a hotel do THAT?) And Housekeeping called to tell me a small magnifying mirror I had stuck... More

Lovely room, big and clean with wonderful views of Sydney Opera House, (at least until the cruise ships dock). Espresso machine in the room, also selection of tea and hot chocolate. Good standard and selection of toiletries in the bathroom. Lovely fluffy towels, large shower. We didn't book breakfast at the hotel, but plenty of restaurants round about. The hotel... More

We stayed at this hotel last Thursday night for two nights to attend a wedding. We were met at reception with outstanding service and friendly staff. Just couldn't do enough for us.

Brilliant location!!! Reasonable rates. Rooms are adequate, clean, comfortable beds, small bathrooms. The rooms must be well sound proofed, I didn't hear any noise from other rooms or hallway. Fantastic view of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, from the roof top pool. Especially pretty at night. Would definitely recommend this hotel. The Rocks is a great area to stay... More
