The Mercantile Hotel Sydney
Most locals know that The Mercantile, or The Merc, is one of Sydney’s best Irish pubs and pours a mean pint of Guinness. But many don’t know that there are comfortable rooms upstairs, perfect for a few nights' staycation. The rooms are full of character and are in a great central location from which to explore The Rocks and Sydney Harbour, and despite all that, they’re surprisingly affordable.
Rendezvous Hotel Sydney
Keen to stay right in the heart of everything? Perhaps enjoy a rendezvous with friends in Sydney’s most historic precinct? Then book a room at Rendezvous Hotel in The Rocks.
This comfortable hotel couldn’t be closer to all the good stuff Sydney has to offer - it’s just a short walk away from the CBD, the Opera House and most major tourist attractions in the city. Plus if you book the right room you’ll get a sun-soaked balcony with views of the harbour!
