The hotel is well located down by the harbour in a lively part of town. We were initially disappointed that we did not have a front facing room but in hindsight the rooms to the rear must be quieter and there was no disturbance. The hotel is a little jaded and could do with a refresh, but all things considered...

Don't miss out the pool view from the rooftop. Amelia at the reception has just been delivering the highest standard of service in this hotel. Will come back! The location between the Sidney Bridge, the Opera House and Circular Quay make it a perfect location for visiting the Sidney or to hop from a business meeting to another.

We disembarked from our cruise ship in Sydney and I needed to find a hotel for two nights. I used points so I wasn't quite sure where it was located. Wow! Did we luck out - the hotel was just a 5 minute walk (if that) from the cruise terminal! It was nearly a perfect location in The Rocks, with...

I love the location for this hotel and try and book here every time I am in Sydney. Right by the harbor front, it is the best value hotel for being this close. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Lots of restaurants around. 10 minute walk to the CBD, 8 minute walk to the opera house, close to the trains....

First stop in a month holiday to Australia. Check in after the international flight was around 10am and the room was ready. Secure elevator system up to the rooms with an open dinning area on the first floor above reception. The breakfast is AMAZING! Fruits, yogurts, eggs and breakfast meats with two espresso self service machines. You can always ask...

Lovely place to stay right in the centre with wonderful views over bridge and the opera house. The view from the pool deck is wonderful. If you want a great location with a nice room this is the place for you.

And surprisingly reasonable priced, albeit depends on what's happening in Sydney. Amazing view from the pool deck, which is on top of the hotel. Otherwise, comfortable hotel and rooms - can even open the windows which is a bonus.

A friend recommended us to stay here and we were not disappointed. Rooms well equipped and very friendly and helpful staff. Great views of the opera house and the bridge from the roof terrace - very small pool so don't expect to do your lengths here. Really good location for exploring Sydney Harbour and the Bridge, also just round the...

Hello, Just stayed one night at this site. Room was clean and the bed very comfortable and great pillows. Things are in good shape but a little on the used side which is expected for an older place. Great location at the Rocks, close to the harbor and opera house. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They have garage parking....

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
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 “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
