You’ve seen the Opera House and the Harbor Bridge in pictures—now that you’re taking a trip to Sydney, you’re going to see them in the flesh. And if you choose a Sydney hotel in the city center, chances are you might even see them from your room!
Visitors to Australia’s glittering jewel of a metropolis will find a range of Sydney hotels as diverse as the city itself. For perfect proximity to Circular Quay, the artsy Rocks area, and the gorgeous Botanical Gardens, a hotel in Sydney’s Central Business District is a must; luxury high-rises and mid-range chains offer plenty of options.
Choosing Your Neighborhood
When considering your hotel in Sydney, it’s important to discern first what sort of traveler you’re going to be. Away from the many offerings in the Central Business District, you’ll find a collection of smaller, more diverse neighborhoods and inner-city suburbs offering a range of accommodation options. Clubhoppers and nightlife-lovers, for instance, will love the bustling vibe of Darlinghurst (called “Darlo” by the locals); beach bums should check out the Sydney cheap hotels in famous Bondi Beach. For affordable options, consider nearby Woolloomooloo, surely the most unforgettable neighborhood name you’ll come across!
