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.

This grand lady in the heart of Sydney’s business district houses more than 400 rooms and suites, and is the perfect home base for families that want to experience everything Sydney has to offer without travel too far.

Overnight accommodation doesn’t get much more special than these waterfront rooms located in Sydney’s historic Rocks precinct.

Need to let the kids blow off some steam? Send them to the heated indoor pool at the InterContinental Sydney for an hour or two while you catch up on that beach read you’ve been neglecting.

Vacations are expensive, so the Hilton is here to ease the pain on mom and dad’s wallet. Any child aged 18 and under who stays in his or her parents’ room does so at no cost. Plus, the location’s close proximity to Hyde Park and the harbor make this hotel ideal for a sightseeing brood.

The rooms in this Surry Hills hotel are simple, colorful and centrally located. Plus, bustling Oxford and Crown Streets are nearby if you need a shopping, nightlife, or food fix.

This is about as easy as it gets. The Royal, located just near the campus of Sydney University, is a no-frills, no-fuss Aussie pub with upstairs accommodation from a very appealing $79 per night for a single room.

This 126-room hotel in pretty Potts Point is actually a collection of serviced apartments, meaning you get a handy kitchenette with any room you book.

A backpackers’ hostel, you say? Don’t be too quick to judge. Bounce is an award-winning accommodation located just a stone’s throw from Central Station, placing you right in the middle of the city.

The main draw here is the swimming pool: it’s perched on the rooftop, so you get a great view of the cityscape to the west, pretty Rushcutters Bay Park to the east, and the expansive harbour to the north.
