During our Australian road trip, we spent 4 nights in Sydney to explore the biggest city in this country. We spent 2 nights to live near the Sydney CBD area – Sydney Novotel Central which sits at Chinatown and 2 nights we moved to Holiday Inn Sydney Airport. We usually prefer to switch hotel and do not like to stay more than 2 nights at the same hotel.
Holiday Inn Sydney Airport is located only minutes away from Sydney Airport. It is situated in the heart of Mascot precinct of restaurant, cafes, bars, and shops. It is only 450m from Mascot Railway Station and just a 15 min train ride from the city center. If you are driving a car, there is a charged carpark underground. I was just pretty amazed at how busy Mascot has become, the city of Mascot use to be a very quiet place. But now, it has several hotels and surrounded by lots of eateries. So finding dinner is not an issue.
Mascot suburb in Sydney is a nice location especially if you are driving a rental car as the parking fee is cheaper compared to Sydney CBD.
Free flow of chocolate at the front lobby.
The gym opens 24 hours, located in the basement also where you access the carpark.
The gym is not very big but it has a few cardio machines and some weights. Clean towels are also available at the corner.
Hotel Room Review
A coffee maker, kettle, complimentary tea bags and coffee, cups and glasses are available. Water in the bottle is charged.
We booked for triple sharing, there are two queen-size beds, a work station with lighting.
The lighting in the room is bright if you turn on all the lights.
Toilet & Bathroom Review
This is a pretty standard Holiday Inn hotel, it provides all the necessities for their guests. Clean towels, toiletries and good water flow of the shower.
We paid AUD 25 for overnight carpark. There is an automated gate locked so it is pretty safe to park overnight. Inform the front desk when you check out the hotel so they will provide you with a ticket to go out of the car park.
Holiday Inn Sydney Airport is ideal for guest who wanted to catch the early flight as it is only minutes away from the Sydney International and Domestic Airport. Even if you do not need to rush to the airport, I would still recommend you to stay in Holiday Inn Sydney Airport because it is still very convenient as it is only 10 minutes to Sydney CBD. Great for guests who have their own car as the car park fee is so much cheaper than the hotel in the city center.
