Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DCGuy654 Decent value for money but needs updating
The Holiday Inn Points Point is in a lively area, and pretty convenient to getting to Sydney's CBD and major tourist destinations. Although it appears that the lobby and restaurant/bar area have been recently constructed or renovated, the rooms are all in need of some updating. This includes the furniture, carpets, bathrooms, etc.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ailebo Very poor experience
After having the gall to try and redeem their 'best price guarantee' (don't bother mind you, they will find a technicality to void your claim if you do) my sister and I were given the worst possible room, overlooking a dirty alleyway. The bed had broken supports and overall we had the feeling like we were being punished. I paid full price for our room and as a single mother I was expecting to have a nice experience for once, not be subjected to vindictiveness. I shudder to think that this could be the experience offered to all full paying guests.
Needless to say we didn't eat there after this initial treatment.
'Potts Point' Holiday inn is directly above Kings Cross station.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GlobalTrekPro Not Bad
Clean hotel, good location, friendly front desk staff and outstanding housekeeping and room service. My only complaint would be that they seemed not to care at all about my Platinum status -- no room upgrade, no free internet, and not really ANY acknowledgement beyond a cheap newspaper. Otherwise the property generally met my expectations for a well-run Holiday Inn and I would consider returning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thomas111 Had an excellent time staying here. Great staff. Great hotel.
On occasion I stay elsewhere when in Sydney, but this is always my preferred hotel. The customer service is first rate and the reception and other staff are consistently friendly, helpful and professional. They have obviously been very well selected and trained. The facilities and amenities are good, and over the years I've seen some of the world's most recognisable celebrities relaxing in the lobby or lounge bar. However, the hotel is unpretentious. Security is good, and the location is excellent. The view of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House is a bonus, if you stay in a Harbour View room. It's a great hotel to be in for the New Years Eve celebrations. There are excellent cafes in Victoria Street, and a vibrant night life next door in Kings Cross. However, if you don't want to visit the pubs, eateries, cafes or other establishments of Kings Cross itself, you can leave and return to the hotel without ever having to set foot in the Cross. Often overlooked is that there is an elevator in the street only metres from the main entrance to the hotel, which takes you from Potts Point straight down into the heart of Kings Cross Station. Sydney's public transport system is world class. You can step out of the hotel and be en route to destinations all over Sydney within a matter of minutes. Thank you to management and staff. I can't wait to return.

Stayed here for the NYE cellebrations, the location is brilliant with the Cross up the road and the Woolloomoloo wharf and Sydney Harbour 15 minitues walk away. Here we found the famous Harry d wheels cafe pies, great pubs and restaurants. Another 10 minutes walk and we were at Lady Macquaries chair over looking the Opera House.
Great staff at this hotel made our stay a breeze and the rrom views across the Harbour awesome... we will return.
Thanks to all the staff

This hotel is close to everything, which was great, the service at the hotel however is extremely poor, The front desk staff basically just didn't care.. They desperately need customer service training or find another job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jetnix Excellent Value, Great Location
I've been staying here for years. Great location, walking distance to great bars, restaurants, cafes and boutiques. It's on the bus and train routes too - easy access to the city or beaches. The staff are genuinely helpful and knowledgable of the local area and beyond. It's also used by airline crew for staff layovers (always a good sign!!).
My advice - get out and walk - stroll down Macleay Street, walk to Circular Quay via Wooloomooloo and the Domain along the habour foreshore. Wander through Elizabeth Bay and Rushcuuters Bay, along the waterfront to Darling Point, Catch the 325 or 324 bus to Watsons Bay for fish-n-chips.
Have a bear at Darlo Bar, the Kings Cross Hotel or the Green Park Hotel followed by an awesome Thai dinner somewhere....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spike73 Bridge/Opera House View
Well worth the extra to upgrade to the city/harbour view room.
The Hotel is technically in Kings Cross which is the red light district but its set back enough not to feel like it is 'in your face', it is also close enough to lovely Macleay Street and the cafes of Victoria Street to fully redeem itself.
Staff were very friendly and service was great, I would 100% recommend and stay here again.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this hotel in a Queen Bed Harbour View Room. The hotel is in an excellent location and the view of the Harbour Bridge was spectacular. There is only a short walk to the Botanic Gardens and Opera House. We will definitely stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by familyfromhk Comfortable bed
We stayed with our 12 year old for 2 nights in a 2 double-bed room. We arrived Sydney around 7am, and thought we would have to wait till 2pm to check-in. However the receptionist gave us our room upon our arrival, so we could unpack and start our sightseeing for the day immediately.
Although the furnitures and in particular, the bathroom, seemed a little dated, the room and bedding was very clean. The bed was comfortable, and there were different pillows (soft and firm) to choose so we really did sleep well, and better than other hotels we had stayed (we moved to other hotels so we drove less to get to Hunter Valley and Blue Mountain...). Breakfast was good.
The hotel has an underground car park - which is reasonable cost. The hotel location was very easy to find and convenient for driving. I think it is also right next to the train station.
Overall we were pleased with the hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sleepless8 Noisy Student Dorm
As this hotel is located in the nightclub area of Potts Point, the hotel is full of young people on the weekends who are coming and going all hours of the night. We were unable to get a good nights sleep for one week and felt that we were staying in a student dorm. Within one week, the hotel's alarm was set-off twice during the early morning hours(ie. approximately 2:30am and 3:00am, respectly) by one of the hotel's party-goers. The carpet in our room was badly stained and the security latch was unhinged from the door. Given the high price we paid for the room, this hotel is not good value.

My husband and I always stay at H.I. Potts point and have done so for the past 8 years. Such easy access to the city, one train stop, plu an interesting part of town to just go for a walk! Staff are all very pleasant and customer service excellent. Love the breakfast buffet in the restaurant!

Breakfast was great after a brilliant sleep. Parking was also very easy and very reasonable for such a central location.
Will definitely stay again, much easier than staying in the city.

Spent 5 nights at the Potts Point Holiday Inn, this is the second time in six months we stayed and has always been fantastic service, great staff, great location and good value for money. We had a Harbour view room on the sixth floor, highly recommend it and worth the extra couple of dollars

We have stayed at many hotels around the world. Holiday Inn at Potts Point was very good. Service at check in was, fast, friendly and efficient. Bar Service downstairs for drinks was the same too. Very conveniently located close to the heart of Sydney and train station only a few steps away...GREAT!
Rooms clean, fresh and comfortable..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RickOSH The best place in Sydney for me.
The Holiday Inn Potts Point is in a great location in Sydney. It has great parking underneath, but is also right next to a train station, so getting around the city or outer reaches of Sydney is easy.
The Staff are excellent, and will assist with anything they can, the restaurant is good, but there are so many Cafes and Restaurants within walking distance, it is hard to choose.
I have stayed at many other hotels in Sydney over the years, but this one is all round the best for me.
It is right in the heart of Sydney action, but is a quiet, safe and comfortable place to return to for a great rest and relaxation.

This was our 4th visit to Sydney but our 1st stay at the hotel. Convenience at the doorstep literally - the train network is just next door!
The Family room was comfortable enough for 4 - two adults and two kids - with queen size beds to boot.
With a hotel staff like Jared! Who helped us with all our shopping destinations, we will soon come back for more!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by atarah service and charges
We arrived at the hotel (from the airport) at 10:00 am (after a very long trip in Sydney's CBD#. We could not get into our room before 14:00 and it seemed like there was no special effort to arrange for an early check in.
Also: as loyal club members we were granted free WiFi in Hong Kong. Why can't this arrangement also apply to your hotels in Australia #we are flying today to Melbourne, where we booked the Crown Plaza, and it would be nice to receive complimentary Wi Fi in this hotel)?
In genral, the price of the hotel is OK, but the additions of the WiFi and parking charges are very expenssive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AlexAndKatya Comfort and great location
We always enjoy our stay at Holiday Inn. The staff are friendly and helpful, breakfasts are very good in the Sirocco and the waiters at dinner are always there to ask how it is, etc.
The location is great being right next to the entrance of the Kings Cross subway station - ever so handy for hopping on the train. But it's also not a long walk to go down via the stairs to the naval docks and then across the freeway to the Domain and to places like the art gallery or to the CBD. Indeed location is one of the important factors.
Of course we always make use of our Priority Privilege 2 nights for price of one voucher and the discounted meals.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TravelinHank Nice hotel
Holiday Inn Potts Point is a very nice hotel. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and quick to assist a guest when they need assistance. The hotel is conveniently located next to Sydney CityRail Kings Cross station. Harbour View rooms provide an excellent view of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Rooms were clean and housekeeping was mindful of the Do Not Disturb sign. Only drawback during my stay is that the hotel does not have a pool. Otherwise, it is a good place to stay and I would do so again on another visit to Sydney.

I often stay here when in Sydney. The hotel is well- serviced with a good restaurant and lots of other choices nearby.
I always use the gym that is generally well maintained. I like the fact that I can leave me car at the hotel, cross the road for a fast train to the CBD, and then return. This really saves on parking charges.

Room could have been cleaner - stains on carpet.
I think for the price paid courtesy car parking should be provided free of charge, especially as there were very few vehicles in carpark.
