This is the coziest place to stay in The Rocks, and perhaps in all of Sydney. It's more than 100 years old, and it shows its age wonderfully in the creak of the floorboards and the ramshackle feel of its brightly painted corridors. Every room is totally different in style, size, and shape; all come with a queen size bed and half have cable TV (others can have a TV moved in if requested). All rooms have immense character, including a series of rooms added on in 1990 above the Fortune of War Hotel next door. There are no harbor views, but from some rooms you can see the tops of the ferry terminals at Circular Quay. Guests have the used of a comfortable sitting room, a living room scattered with magazines and books, and a rooftop garden. Boulders Restaurant serves good food on the ground floor.
