Holiday Inn Potts Point - Sydney
Ranked #61 of 180 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed the New Year's time 2012-13 at Holiday Inn, Potts Point, 4-5 nights altogether.

The hotel is rather new and clean, hotel personnel were v.nice. I did not try the bar or restaurant, since there were plenty of options in neighborhood area, but they did look good. Location of the hotel was excellent, not on CBD (central business district), but with a walking distance practically from anywhere.

Potts Point is a nice and lively area in otherwise perhaps quite peaceful Sydney. There's a number of bars, clubs and restaurants around, but the overall we felt our stay secure there - perhaps I would not recommend this area for a family with children. The restaurant building (the old King's Cross Hotel, the red-brick building across the Coca-Cola -ad) offers meals with v.good value, having a nice terrace on 1st floor.

If possible, please book a room having a window to west i.e. not facing to Darlinghurst Street, since the hotel next to Holiday Inn had a v.noisy club (Goldfish ?) playing music long in to the night - perhaps the rooms on the other side of the building are better for some sleep, during the weekend the nights were quite difficult to us :/

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side, away from Darlinghurst Road and noisy clubs are warmly recommended.

I enjoyed my stay at the holiday inn. It's definitely not the height of luxury but rooms are clean and if you get a view of the harbour it's beautiful. Staff are friendly and for me the location was great. Close walk to cafes and nice walk to the opera house. I would not though that it is quite close to the nightlife of kings cross so possibly not the best choice for families. I would stay again though.

I stayed for 4 nights in March 2013. The pluses are that the room was a decent size, very clean, with a nice bathroom, air conditioning, and a fridge, and there is good underground carpark. The hotel is only a 10-15 minute walk from the city, plus Kings Cross train station is right next door. There were a couple of down sides: the smell of the room when I first entered was breathtakingly bad - I really don't know what was causing it, but over my 4 night stay, it either got better, or I grew accustomed to it! It's Kings Cross, so it's to be expected, but the noise from the street at night is pretty loud, especially on a Satuday night. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for a short stay.

I stayed for one night and had, had a really long day.
There were noisy people in the room next door but the hotel staff were unable to do anything about it.
If you are after a quiet night don't stay as the walls thin and staff wont stop noise makers.
The rooms are clean and there is secure parking.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn last week. The Hotel is in the heart of Potts Point and very vibrant area of Sydney. The CBD and Opera House are all a short cab ride away.
The hotel has a nice breakfast buffet liked the Juicer to make your own drinks and decent bar later in the day.
I would recommend getting a room that faces the back of the Hotel as you have views of the Sydney Opera House and the Bridge also I would guess the front rooms might have noise from the streets.
All in all basic but delivers what you would expect for a Holiday Inn.

My wife and I spend a Friday and Saturday night here at the beginning of Feb 2013. I rate it quite high for value and location. The rooms are decent and good value (for Sydney). The breakfast was very good. It is also very close to Kings Cross station which is handy. Note though that King's Cross is an area with some street people. While it's not as risque as Pigale in Paris, my impression is its safer than a lot of downtown areas in major US cities, say San Francisco for instance. Personally I'd avoid Darlinghurst Rd and that subway entrance with young children, especially at night. Fortunately, there is subway access near the hotel that avoids going down Darlinghurst. I'd readily recommend it to couples looking for a decent value Sydney hotel.

Room Tip: I upgraded to a view room and was happy I did.

My husband and I spent a week in this hotel, the service was good and the staff were polite, the room was clean and comfortable.
Because I'm a gold IHG member they upgraded us and got a free newspaper every day, we didn't dined in because of the location you have a variety of restaurants near by were you get better value.
