The Holiday Inn Old Sydney is perfectly located for a stay in Sydney. It is only a short walk to Circular Quay, the rail station and the Opera House. I stayed as a single traveller in a double room and it was perfect for my needs. The room was spotless and cleaned daily. The reception staff were helpful and could...

We stayed for one night before a cruise. The location of the hotel is perfect for access to the Overseas Passenger Terminal, only a few minutes walk. On cruise day, you can easily drop off luggage and have a look around the harbour before checking out. Apart from the location, the hotel was great itself. Prompt and friendly service on...

A very good location for a Holiday Inn downtown in The Rocks district near plenty of bars and restaurants and a much more interesting Holiday Inn than the Potts Point version. There is a lovely pool on the roof top. The view is also outstanding.

This hotel is a gem in terms of location. VERY accessible: train station is just 5 minutes walk; Ferry/wharf about the same distance; Harbour Bridge and the Opera House are within the area; there's a local market on weekends right in front of its doors; Hop-on, Hop-off bus stop 1 is right across the street; restaurants and shops are nearby;...

We stayed here for just one night prior to cruise out of Circular Quay. We were given a room on the 8th floor near the back of the hotel which gave us a partial view of the Harbour Bridge. The room turned out to be very small considering the price we paid for a one night stay. Food and drinks...

The rooftop pool has a fantastic view of the Opera House and Harbor Bridge! But mainly at night as every day cruise ships block the view of the Opera House. But it was great to be out there at night! Great staff! Delicious food in their restaurant!

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
