Wonderful hotel

Holiday Inn Old Sydney is the perfect location. It's near some great restaurants, outdoor market, and of course the gorgeous Sydney harbor. I'd definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Perfect Sydney location

The polite and very helpful staff made this one of the most enjoyable hotel experiences I have had. Our room had views of the city and Opera House and was very comfortable. Perfect for our overnight Sydney experience with a huge choice of restaurants, bars and cafes all within a short stroll.

Ideal Weekend Getaway

This hotel is located in the Rocks area of Sydney , park your car and you can walk to all that this part of the city has to offer with great eateries just a stroll away, the rooms are compact but adequate , the staff are very helpful and friendly. Make sure you get the location of their subsidised parking station correct otherwise it could prove costly.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

leave your vehicle in the parking station and walk or use public transport taxi rank at hotel front door parking and traffic in Sydney is a nightmare.

Location perfect

Stayed for holiday purpose. Close walking distance to Sydney CBD. Lots of cafe's/restaurants nearby. At the historic Rocks - so much to see & do here. Street markets outside hotel on Saturday were great. Walked to Darling Harbour & down to Queen Victoria Building & Gardens opposite Catholic Cathedral, Also to Opera House & Harbour Bridge, so easy to get to all tourist spots in city.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Circular Quay is short walk to get ferry to all areas of Sydney Suburbs. Take the ferry to Manly to see the heads out to open sea. The yacht club has great lunch, you need ID with home address on it to get in, don't need to be a member.

Perfect for our Needs

We arrived around midday and were upgraded to a room with a partial water view. We had booked this hotel because it was near a dinner venue we planned to go to. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The shower was over the bath which I don't like and the water flow was poor until I realised the shower was adjustable and once the button was pressed it was fine. The bedside table on one side was missing and the light control seemed to be all or nothing but otherwise the room was fine. The curtains need replacing as they are looking tired, On the roof is a great view and a swimming pool. As it was winter we did not swim in the pool. The hotel is close to many tourist attractions including The Rocks and Circular Quay. There are numerous places to eat breakfast nearby so we did not have breakfast at the hotel. I would definitely stay here again if I need to be in that part of Sydney.

Barely a 4 star but a very good 3.5 star

Some minor issues such as bins in laneway outside my window being emptied at 7am and aircon problems (being fixed) but overall very enjoyable place to stay. Great service and location. Terrace views great and can open windows. Will be ver happy to return.
