Stayed here for 4 nights and was blown away by the location of this property. We loved the feel of the historic Rocks area and everything is indeed literally on your doorstep. We were happy with our stay but there are few things that stop us giving a five rating. On arrival 15.30, our room wasn't ready. We were offered...

Excellent location in The Rocks district in Sydney. Situated a short walk away from the cruise port, Circular Quay (where you can catch ferries to the beaches and the zoo, as well as direct train access to the airport) and many bars, restaurants, the Opera House and shops. The hotel is a little dated, but it's clean and serves its...

This hotel is great. It has a rooftop pool that overlooks the Sydney Harbour Bridge. There is free WiFi at the hotel. The rooms are a good size and very clean. I would recommend this to anyone that's not wanting to spend a fortune on a hotel in Sydney.

This hotel is ideally sited on The Rocks, a place chosen by the first settlers in Australia and is close to the magnificent Harbour Bridge, Circulay Quay and Sydney Opera House. A few minutes walk takes you to the Quay from where you can board a ferry to Manly, Bondi or many other wonderful beach resorts. The hotel has a...

My partner and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Old Sydney this week and could not have been happier. Having managed to get an incredible deal on the price, we also experienced the best service I can remember from any hotel I've stayed in over the years. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere affordable in Sydney.

Our first trip to Sydney and this was recommended by our travel agent. The location could not have been more perfect. Everything was so close, the Bridge, Opera House, Circular Quay, ferries, restaurants and bars. Lovely weekend street market one street away. Excellent Museum of the Rocks almost next door. The room was large and comfortable. Ate in the restaurant...

We had no idea where to stay in Sydney as this is our first trip to Australia. The travel agent selected this hotel right near the bridge and opera, surrounded by pubs and restaurants. Despite being in a busy area, our room on the 8th floor was very quiet. The room itself was only adequate, but there was a terrific...

This hotel is in an excellent location close to Circular Quay. Friendly staff, comfortable room and a delicious breakfast. The only thing I could possibly criticise is the bar, its very small with a complete lack of atmosphere. Having said that, the hotel is within walking distance of so many attractions that it doesn't matter a jot. I'd stay here...

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood 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.
