Holiday Inn Old Sydney is located the heart of the historic Rocks area of Sydney. The hotel offers one of the best roof top pools in Sydney overlooking one of the world's most beautiful harbour - Sydney Harbour.

Overview



Stay in the heart of The Rocks at the heritage-listed Holiday Inn Old Sydney hotel, with Harbour Bridge and Opera House views.

Quaint cobbled streets lead you through the historic Rocks precinct to Holiday Inn Old Sydney. You'll marvel at the 8 storey-high, glass-roofed atrium when you arrive from Sydney Airport, 15km away. The 360-degree panoramas from our rooftop pool terrace take in iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, opposite the hotel.

From Circular Quay, just a few minutes' walk from the hotel, you can catch a ferry across Sydney Harbour for koala encounters at Taronga Zoo or over to Manly beach. There are native plants on show at the 30-hectare Royal Botanic Gardens, 300 metres away, and stylish boutiques in our cosmopolitan Rocks precinct. Climb the outer arch of Sydney Harbour Bridge, 500 metres away, for stunning views across Sydney.

At Holiday Inn Old Sydney you can leave your vehicle in our car park and stroll to Sydney's central business district, 10 minutes away, and Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, 20 minutes from us. Report back to the office with wireless Internet from your Guest room, our Lobby Lounge Bar and the rooftop terrace.

Take in impressive views from the rooftop and dip in the 15-metre heated pool, or relax on the sun-loungers. A selection of wines wash down cafe-style meals in Holiday Inn Old Sydney's cool, sunken Lobby Lounge Bar.

Google Reviews



About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Nice hotel staff , extremely friendly. Rooms were pretty clean and staff was responsive to issues that came up. Rooms are pretty small in this older hotel. Also, be careful how many devices you plug in, there appears to be only one electrical circuit for the entire room. Bathroom was very small and the top of my head rubbed the ceiling in the shower. I am 6 feet tall for reference. I would stay here again, but I think there are some things a traveler should keep in mind, as noted above.

Review:   The Grace is one hotel you have to visit at least once before you die.... The service food and reception is second to none.... I felt like a superstar whilst I was there.

Review:   Great location, especially if you're joining a cruise at the nearby passenger terminal. However rooms are pretty dated and lack modern requirements like power outlets at the bedside tables for charging phones and tablets etc. Bathroom can be cramped and shower water pressure in our room was weak and difficult to adjust for temp. However I was staying while on business, so I didnt spend much time in the room. Rooftop deck and pool is the centrepiece of the property, giving fantastic views over circular quay and to the bridge. Prices can seem astronomical for the basic, old rooms, but you're paying really for location.

Review:   If anyone is looking for a great deal on hotels you can check it out on HotelRaven. com Booked a room on there and they had the best rates around... Great location in the Rocks and close to the waterfront / opera house and bridge. Lovely friendly staff. Rooms are basic but clean and satisfactory. Restaurant food is good and very reasonably priced. Good WiFi. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for all the reasons given.
