Inexpensive, amazing location.

1) view of the opera house 2) ideal location 3) cheap for what you get
Stay was just what I'd hoped for. Excellent price for a room right downtown. Just blocks to train station. So easy to get to, makes a perfect over-nighter if you're connecting at the airport.

The Rocks

The staff, the location, the convenience.
No Hotel has a better location or friendlier and helpful staff.It offers comfort, decent room size , and is extremely clean. With so many options within a few paces, didn't try the dining room, but breakfast looked pretty good. A couple of observations. The internal colour scheme is dreadful, drab and just plain wrong. Poo brown and dirty yellow might be the (almost) colours of the era when the building was constructed, but they make the giant foyer area look turgid and dated. Surely a designer could add some neutral pale taupes and antique whites to give a more contemporary appearance?? The Air conditioning is mysterious, though effective and a tad noisy. No doubt the next upgrade will address this. Therse criticism are cosmetic and do not detract from the main thing, location, value and comfort.

Over rated

I was very disappointed with the Holiday Inn. The rooms was far from the standard of other Holiday Inns, example Thailand. I was disgusted that they wanted to charge me $30 for one hour late check out. Thailand is free. WiFi? what an insult! 55cents per minute. Thailand?Free. Take your own luggage up to the room..no service here. Breakfast?? If I book 24 hours in advance they discount... haha, it to $25 a head. We had a very good breakfast next door for $12.00 per person. The only good thing we found was the location in the Rocks area. Sorry Holiday Inn, we will not be staying at this one again.

Like me, a bit tired.

Staff, location and comfort. The parking is easy and good value for the area being a daily rate. Wi Fi is free if you join the "Club" Should be free anyway like the rest of the world. The bathrooms ws
It was very good, no problems whatever. Would have no hesitation staying again though it would be lovely to see the much needed refurbishment take place. Oh one gripe, those hideous interior colours are right out of the 60s. More neutral and stylish please. !!

Will not stay again

Close to where I had to be
Room on ground level every car. Bus truck sounds like they are cing through the room. Party goers and taxi rank outside meant no sleep until after midnight. No porter at door. Haul your own bags from road to desk and then to room will not stay again
