“Time for a renovation”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

Walked into the room and the smell of the old blinds which are decaying really made the room unbearable. The mattress was very old and sagging in the centre. In general the staff are good but the place is in dire needs of a renovation. Proximity to everything south of the bridge is fantastic.

Room Tip: If position is what you are after then this is the place. Book through http://www.travelsmoove.com...

The Holiday Inn Potts Point is conveniently located above Kings Cross train station. From here you are a short ride into the Sydney CBD and connections to the airport and anywhere in NSW. The hotel is in the middle of the Victoria Street restaurant and backpacker party scene. A very good location if you are young and looking for fun. Our room was on the third floor and had a lovely view of St Mary's Cathedral and the city skyline.

The room was large with a very nice marble bathroom. Everything was clean. Staff were friendly and efficient.

Across the road and down a bit is a liquor store as well as a Laundromat and dry cleaner.

We will return.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the city.

Service was exceptional especially from the front desk staff. Rooms were comfortable and good (however the walls are a tad too thin to make oneself privy to audio from adjacent rooms). The only let down was the fact it was in the King's Cross vicinity which meant weekend nights were a nightmare ( to be fair though the hotel is located above the KC train station which makes it a convenient option in terms of transport, but not one for a quiet or family type of soujourn).

WE stay here alot as it is near station to get to city or wherever, and has security parking on site. It is fairly quiet and the beds are comfortalbe with pillow menu! Handy to eastern suburbs, and quite a few reastaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Try to get a harbour view room---great views at night!

We stayed here for 10 nights and were not disappointed. The staff are very accomodating and friendly. The Kings Cross tube station is next door which makes getting around the city a breeze and returning after a busy day out and about. The hotel is showing its age a little being an older one...the carpets are dirty in places and need cleaning or replacing. The beds are fine and we slept really well, except for the weekends when the noise goes late into the early mornings. It seems like all of Sydney comes to Kings Cross on the weekend to party! The rooms are of a nice size with a large bathroom.The area is somewhat seedy but we were never felt uneasy and got used to it after a few days. The best part of the hotel is the amazing breakfast buffet....which is out of this world for value....I recommend it!! Over all we enjoyed our stay here...just take earplugs for the noisy weekends and you will be fine. Its a decent 3 star hotel. If you want an internet connection save your money and go around the corner to the local Mc Donalds it has free wifi and just fine for checking your email or departure flight times! And if you are staying here for a while and need to do laundry there is a guest laundry room, which is a great help: $2 for a washer and the same for a dryer and the hotel provided soap for free!

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel are best, away from the street and have a view of the Opera House!.
