          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

          My husband and I have reservations (Booking number: 1536218573) or Feb. 17, 2018. I believe that we have a private bathroom, air conditioning and non smoking. Which are a priority for us. After reading the reviews and the fact that we arrive on a Saturday, would it be possible for a quiet room? Also since check in starts at 1:30, would it be possible to drop off our suitcases and enjoy the day because our flight arrives early in the morning. Elizabeth Aklinski
