    Very central hotel. Ideal for new visitors to Sydney as it is within walking distance of all the sights. It isn't a cosy plush hotel it is basically a place to lay your head so for me not a relaxing hotel. It is great views of Sydney bridge and the Opera house.

    Very Clean, Beautiful Hotel. There is a rooftop pool and spa overlooking the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Id stay here again. The only thing that isnt great is that there is a high charge for Internet.

    For the location, price, and amenities, you can't beat the Old Sydney Holiday Inn. The Rocks Weekend Market is just outside your door, the staff is courteous and helpful...the rooftop sauna, heated pool and views are stunning. We enjoyed breathtaking sunrises and loved walking out the door to Circular Quay. Close to everything and will highly recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone.

    Great location


    Just got back from Australia, spending the first 2 days at this hotel. Wish we had booked it for our final 3 days after our travels around Australia. It had the best location. We were able to walk to most attractions and just walk out the door and you are on George Street where all the shopping is.The hotel is the nicest holiday inn that I have stayed in. The staff was the greatest. I would stay at this hotel again.



    Perfect for our requirements. Staff accomodating friendly and helpful. Location great for walking to most locations and ambient for pedestrians. Rooms and facilities provided everything for a comfortable and luxurious overnight

    Very nice, great location


    The location and value can't be beat. Not too many king sized rooms. If you want one, book early. Rooms are clean and have everything a busy traveler needs. We would stay here again.

    Location and value


    Just spent four nights in Sydney at this Holiday Inn....staff were all very helpful and nice. The concierge got me a ticket to the Opera on short notice. My room had everything I needed and a great view, with a window that opened. What a terrific location.....near the ferries, and the Opera House, and the bridge. The Rocks rock, and so does the Old Sydney Holiday Inn. I'd recommend it.



    what a pleasure to find a reasonably priced,comfortable hotel in such a magnificent location.The room was bright and fresh,better than I expected from a corporate chain hotel.Food and service were of a high standard and the staff were all genuinely pleasant.Best thing though has to be the close proximity to all of Sydneys premier attractions and the incredible view from the roof terrace.Highly recommended!

    Old Sydney Inn - Holiday Inn


    Spent 8 days in Sydney, and this was the perfect place to stay! In the rocks, inexpensive and comfortable. We do not like to spend $$ on hotel rooms - we never are in them! Having the weekend market right outside the door was great! A 5 minute walk to the ferries, and the best breakfast in town at the City Extra across form the ferry landing. Would recommend this to anyone!

    Totally Fantastic


    Beautiful room with fantastic view. Location ideal with easy walk to Circular Quay and Opera House. Would definately stay here again.

    Wonderful location


    Friend and I stayed there in 1998. It was a lovely hotel and located within walking distance of the Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge.However, I believe it's not called the Old Sydney Park Royal anymore. The new names eludes me at the monent.

    Amazing location!


    Lovely hotel with roof top jacuzzi and sauna overlooking the opera house and the bridge - we had it all to ourselves - amazing views. Big rooms, great food. Perfect for exploring sydney.

    Our days in Sydney will be a trifle restless: we'll not be staying more than 2 nights in any hotel, a nomad’s life. We left our hotel and had a brek (local for breakfast) in the street.

    Our first day was already a highlight: temperatures of 25 are very bearable! And we’re very close to Circular Quay where it all happens. And …

    Arrived in Sydney early Wednesday morning. Very tired. Been awake for 17 hours. Booked into hotel. Bit of a let down after the luxury of Dubai but it is in a very central location. Right by Circular Quay where the ferries go in and out all day to the various suburbs along Sydney harbour estuary. Slept for four hours in the afternoon. Ate a takeaway …

    Felling slightly awkward because its 10 in the morning here and 11 at night at home. Everyone's wearing shorts in December and the sun is actually out.

    Came from the airport to the Holiday Inn by taxi which was an interesting journey. Normally you see pigeons in the streets back home but instead there were miniature storks, squirrels were …

    Final Destination

    We arrived in Sydney in the evening and after the busy day we had in the Blue Mountains we just wanted to relax. We grabbed a quick dip in the lagoon next to the campsite before interneting, showering and making some yummy chili burgers for supper. The next morning we watched the hockey game vs. Toronto which we lost but got 1 point out of. It w...
