              The location - close to circular quay which we wanted.

              One switch controlled all lights. No good lighting for reading in bed.

              location of the hotel

              too noisy, the music in the hotel played all night and prevented me from sleeping

            • Older travelers

              Excellent location & very nice ambience, overall relaxed atmosphere with adequate facilities. Great rooftop views.

              Front room too noisy recommend double glazing be installed.

            • Couple

              The furniture and the bathroom were old. The room was small. Complimentary very poor. The room was too espensive for what it was offered moreover when we booked, the rooms had a price, then the prices went down but they did not change the price we had already paid. We asked a room with Opera House view but we received a room with back view...they asked us more money to have a room with a view. The room smelt musty and kitchen.

              I have stayed at HolidayInn in other countries and have always had a good experience with the staff and accomodation, the staff at Old sydney were excellent and have no hesitation staying there again

              The location couldn't be better. Lots around to see and do as well as plenty if restaurants about.

              The pool was closed for chemical balancing the whole time we were there which was a real shame.

              Good location, near touristy attractions of Sydney and old Sydney. Staff was friendly and helpful. Has a small rooftop terrace, with a small pool, which can be very nice to sit and relax on while not touristing around town.

              Room was large, but the bathroom was undersized and cramped. Considering the general quality of the room and hotel overall I would say that it was overpriced for what was on offer.

              Was close to the venues I was using while in Sydney.

              A little dated.

            • Family with children

              The Central Location, and the view of the harbour

              It definitely needs some work done. The bathroom, in particular, was pretty run down.

            • Older travelers

              It has a good location.

              The hotel is old and tired. The rooms are not great and too small.
