My husband and I have been to Sydney several times, and accommodation choices are always the hardest decision as to price and location. On this trip we wanted an apartment to share with my sister and brother-in-law (who had never been to Australia) and their 18yo daughter...who wanted to go "see Sydney" for her high school graduation trip. We had a great time, and the apartment had all mod cons, modern plumbing/electricity and was smartly decorated and super tidy. The living room is small, but as it was January and quite warm we ate at the covered outdoor dining deck and did just fine. I loved that it was an old "Rocks Cottage" as I like to feel the history of a place, and my niece is a huge history fan and had studied up on Sydney quite a bit...and was really pleased.
We walked to just about everywhere, and there are many good restaurants nearby.
My husband couldn't get enough of the meat pie at the old Lord Nelson brewery a block away...and just about 4 blocks down to Circular Quay has every kind of restaurant/coffee shop.
An overall great experience!
