Great location in the historic district of The Rocks, and a short walk away from Circular Key. Basic facilities but a good option if you want to keep your costs low. Free breakfast and wifi are a bonus. If you're dining at the Mercantile pub downstairs I recommend the beef and Guinness pie! Easy to navigate public transport to and from the airport.

The hotel is in such an amazing location, but it comes with compromises : while the beds are quite comfortable, the room is past its prime with decayed walls and a spa that looks so worn out we did not dare try it. We visited around NYE so rates were crazy as the rest of Sydney.

A great overnight stay at the Rocks if on a 'budget' -if you're just after a bed for the night after a day/evening's enjoyment of this great location. It's an old pub - embrace it!, Accommodation decor isn't flash, but clean with all the basics, including a comfortable bed. Room/bathroom bigger than most of the high end hotels. My room pretty quiet despite it being a Sat evening in full swing downstairs. Would stay again.

Yes and No”

For us the Mercantile was fine because we are healthy seniors. Most of our friends would have major trouble with the stairs in the hotel and the walk up the hill from the Quay. That is why we could not recommend it to them. We liked the continental breakfast and the weekend full breakfast. We would stay there again because of the good location and price, but to recommend it to anyone less that fit? No.
