Went in December 2013, had a fantastic stay. Couple of protips: Don't use the laundry service provided, there is a laundry room that takes tokens, super cheap, free detergent, if you have any basic laundry to do just do it yourself there. Location is excellent, lots of options but they're all pretty expensive. In my opinion you can't miss FINE... More

This cute boutique hotel is close to all of the action...with rooftop views of the Sydney Opera House and the Circular Quay ferry terminal and the Cruise Terminal...comfort and location...tremendous value! Spent hours on the promenade that extends from the base of the bridge to Circular Quay and back around the other side to the amazing Opera House.

My wife and I decided on a night in the city at the Holiday Inn next the the Rocks Market, all the Staff at the Hotel were very helpful and looked after us very well, good breakfast choices. It is a great location for going to all the other attractions around the Rocks within walking distance.

Great place. Easy access to all I wanted to see. Pool and party area on the roof made for idyllic location. Friendly staff. Only problem was that I needed to book 2 rooms for my family. Wish there were different sized rooms. Would love to stay there in summer!

This hotel best feature is its location. It is just a short walk to the harbor where the Sydney Harbor Bridge dominates the view, and also provides a nice view of the Opera House a short distance away. Several small and upscale restaurants also dot the area close by. However, we found the prices way out of line for the... More

We stayed at this hotel 3 weekends ago. This Holiday Inn takes advantage of Australia’s quality produce and it shows in the breakfast buffet which included a spread of fruits in season and juice station where guests can make their fresh fruit juice.(As usual I cannot help but compare the breakfast spread to the Paris and Boston branches. In both... More

We have spent one week exploring Sydney. Arrived late Thursday and settled into hotel. Perfect location in The Rocks. Fabulous restaurants close by including Caminetto Italian restaurant, directly behind the hotel, the upstairs bar/restaurant at the Orient hotel, the courtyard cafe, patisserie and great coffee at The Fine Food store. Visited Paddy's market then on way back to hotel, explored... More

I only stayed here one night. I wish I could have stayed longer! The room was great. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. I was on the eighth floor so the view was good of this section of Sydney. The rooftop pool and spa were fantastic. What a great view of Sydney Harbor and the city! The desk reception... More

Perfectly located in the Rocks with a rooftop pool view to die for - which nearly happened incidentally on diving into a freezing cold shallow pool but that's another story.. Rooms perfectly serviceable but nothing to write home about. Very comfy beds and pillows and fabulously efficient staff. Would recommend and will stay again.

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.
