Stayed at this excellent located hotel over the weekend with our two boys along with some Family friends for a weekend of Oz Comic Con and to explore the city.

This hotel is super close to the harbour bridge which was great for our morning walk as well as a wonder around the harbour to the Opera house.

Many restaurants located nearby to give dining options to suit the family also a great roof top heated pool and spa which kept the boys entertained so the adults could have a quite drink and catch up while watching them.

Stayed with my son on a trip of a lifetime to Australia. Perfect location for walking to Harbour Bridge, and Circular Quay. Lovely bars and shops and side streets nearby. Amazing rooftop views of Bridge and Opera House. Recommend for location.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn old Sydney overnight and was really impressed with the lovely staff. They were courteous, friendly and very helpful which was lovely. The hotel itself is very well positioned in the Rocks. The views of the harbour from the pool deck are lovely too. The room was basic but had everything you needed and was very clean. An enjoyable stay, thank you.

Fantastic location, 2 minutes walk to the Cruise Terminal in Circular Quay! Baggage storage available. Super friendly staff. Fantasic views from the rooftop and our room as well. Good evening menu, brilliant breakfast with heaps to choose from. Room was ok, just what we required. Bathroom needs serious updating, came across as dirty with how old it was even though it appeared clean - wasn't up to the standard for the money we paid.

This hotel is right in the middle of the rocks area. We chose it because we were leaving on a cruise the next morning and it was only a short walk down the hill to the cruise terminal. It is right near lots of restaurants but we ordered room service for dinner which was reasonably priced and very tasty. We also had breakfast in our room price which had a good variety of choices. We also enjoyed a happy hour drink where we met some other people who were also on our cruise the next day. I would really recommend this hotel if you want a reasonably priced hotel in the circular quay/ rocks area. The rooms are definitely not huge but the beds are comfy and the staff very friendly. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
