Hotels in Sydney

Hotels in Sydney offer excellent value year-round. But the best hotels in Sydney book up quickly, so it's wise to reserve several months in advance. Happily, Sydney hotels are available at every price point.

Some of the best and most central accommodations can be found in the Rocks and around Circular Quay, just a short walk from the Opera House, the Royal Botanic Gardens, and the ferries. Case in point: The InterContinental Hotel, which has its own excellent restaurant, is just south of the harbor and is close to the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Opera House.

Hotels around Darling Harbour are just slightly farther away, either a 15-minute walk or a short rail trip, from the city's main attractions. Finally, one of Sydney's most popular suburbs is Manly, where the Manly Guest House stands. This Sydney hotel isn't too far from the beach and is safe, clean, and affordable.

For a bit of an upgrade, the Vibe Hotel North Sydney overlooks Lavender Bay and Kirribilli and gives you the choice of which view you prefer. Room service is 24/7 and there are two pools—one outside and one inside.
