Booked this hotel only for one night prior to boarding a cruise. The cruise terminal is within walking distance even with luggage - all downhill! Have stayed at more expensive hotels in Sydney in the past, but if you're looking for a good base with big rooms and excellent in-room catering facilities I would recommend this hotel.

On a work trip, couldn't get in where I usually stay so was booked in here. And it was just fine. The furniture is of an older style but is in good condition and has been looked after. It was an apartment style room and the kitchen looked very useful and functional even though i only used the kettle! Unlike... More

Stayed for four nights following a cruise. Great position, friendly staff. Our room had a wonderful view of the opera house, and the occasional cruise ship. The excellent position comes with high prices in local cafes, and shops, but it is only a short walk to more normal (for Sydney) priced food and drinks.

This hotel is is located in The Rocks area. It is advertised as having a direct view of Sydney Opera House. It actually has a view of cruise ships. The room is nice and check in/out is easy. As long as you are not booking this for the view it is a good place to stay.

We had booked a queen studio for our wedding anniversary to have a night off from our kids. When we arrived we were given the historical room. It had very old furniture and may have been great for a tourist wanting that old rocks feeling, but not what we were after. We were told it was an upgrade and all... More

The hotel is beginning to show its age. Room 511 has a good view of the Opera House. However, at $480 per night, we expected a better facility. The bathroom needs a bit of a refresh. Air-conditioning ran too hot even when turned down to 18 degrees.TV reception spotty. Hotel breakfast location was down the street, very ordinary and expensive.

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.
