“Good hotel, near the airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We recently stayed one night at the Holiday Inn and were quite happy with the hotel.
The hotel is very close to the airport, about 3 minutes from the domestic terminal and just under 10 from the international terminal.
As typical for an airrt hotel it is close to the airport, which not much around the acktual building, apart from office buildings.

The hotel itself is quite large, modern and has a bright, inviting lobby. Check in was fiendly and efficient. Our room was of medium size, modern and clean. The bed was comfortable, if a bit soft.

We arrived in the evening after a long flight and wanted to eat, but found out that food service ends at 10. Even though we asked for the menus five to ten, we were told to order from the late night bar menu. The food was nothing special and seemed to be just reheated, pre packaged food (spring rolls)

We left fairly early the next morning without eating breakfast in the hotel, though I had a coffe to go, which was nice.

For me the overall winning point of the hotel is it's staff. Always friendly with smiles galore. Well done H.I. Sydney!

Stayed 2 nights april 14th and 15th we got held up in sydney because of cancelation of our flight for 2 days and qantas put us up there at there expence so the price was just right. The hotel was in a great place with only a short bus ride to the airport which qantas also payed for. The Mascot railway station was a only a short walk away and a short train ride into the city. the hotel had it all great room resturant and bar and services.

The HI helps make a terrible airport seem not so bad.

The room was good, comfortable and clean. TV was pretty ordinary, whilst being oversized it was of poor quality ... But all I rally needed was a bed.

Unlike a lot of hotels in Sydney the staff are efficient.

Transfer from international terminal to hotel was hard to find and I ended up taking a cab. The next morning the transfer to domestic was very easy. The transfers are done by an independent operator.

Reasonable if unremarkable hotel close to Sydney domestic terminal. Possibly TOO close to the terminal in fact because you can't get a cab from the hotel and amazingly enough, for what is not a budget hotel, they charge $6 for a mini-bus transfer...

Walking, however, is not recommended due to Australia's slavish adherence to the American principle of providing only partial pavements - there is at least one traffic junction where you'll end up having to sprint across 6-lanes with a suitcase.

Of course, it's a Holiday Inn - so although nominally a "business" hotel, you'll have to sell your first-born child into slavery to afford the Wi-Fi charges. Check that your room-rate includes hot water, electric lights or being allowed to close the curtains.

To cater for early morning flights from Sydney airport, the Holiday Inn was excellent. The system is deigned to cater for easy overnight access and it works well. There were frequent airport transfer options and staff were quick and efficient in and out. Importantly, the room was very comfortable.

I stayed here for one night in order to make my international connection first thing the next morning. Lovely spacious room and very comfortable king bed. There is also a convenience store located adjacent to the hotel which is very handy. I used the shuttle service for a 5.30am departure which was also very handy.

5 min AUD 16 taxi ride from airport. Shuttle back to airport 6 AUD/ person. Clean rooms, with extra space for lots of luggage. Comfortable HolidayInn queen bed. Powerful hair dryer for the ladies.

Internet wifi available but at a steep AUD27/day with 200MB data cap!

Right next to an Ibis if you are on a tight budget and want to compare.
