  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Sydney if you stay on a Sunday. The opposite is true for, Tuesday, which is usually the most expensive day.

  • Sydney’s CBD (Central Business District) is a popular area with business travellers, with an array of international brand-name hotels, many of them a stone’s throw from Sydney Harbour. Choose from the classically elegant Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel near the Sydney Opera House or the sky-scraping InterContinental Sydney, just a two-minute walk from Circular Quay.
  • Families staying near Darling Harbour, on the western edge of the CBD, won’t be short of things to see and do, with plenty of family-friendly sights, such as the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium and Wild Life Sydney Zoo. Accommodation here includes the Adina Apartment Hotel Darling Harbour, with family-friendly conveniences including an outdoor pool, BBQ patio and restaurant delivery service.
  • For great deals on budget hotels in Sydney, Kings Cross is the place to be. This inner-city area, east of the CBD, offers good-value rooms and a lively nightlife. It’s part of the suburb of Potts Point, an affluent area with more midrange options to tickle your fancy. A good choice here might be the Song Hotel Sydney.
  • For a taste of romance and old-world charm, you can’t go wrong with the Rocks, an historic area brimming with trendy boutique hotels. With the city centre just a short walk or ferry ride away, it’s a great option for couples seeking a more intimate vibe.
  • Australia’s popularity as a backpacking destination means Sydney has plenty of cool hostels that won’t break the bank. Party over the city skyline at Bounce Sydney, whose rooftop bar and buzzing location opposite Central Station make it an ideal base for a night out. Or relax and soak up the views at the Sydney Harbour YHA, located in the Rocks, near the Opera House and just a short walk from Circular Quay.
