Your guide to hotels in Sydney. Where will you be staying on your next visit?

Sydney Opera House at Sunset

If you've never been to Sydney, it can be a little confusing at first to know what's what. Contrary to popular belief, the heart of Sydney isn't next to the beach. If you want to be right in the thick of things, you'll want to stay either in the city (CBD), The Rocks, Circular Quay or Walsh Bay.

If you've got the beach on the brain, then venture out to either Bondi or Manly. Bondi is about a forty minute trip to the big tourist destinations, while Manly is a thirty minute ferry ride away.

A few things to consider before you book:

  • Do you want harbour views? Or do you want the city at your doorstep?
  • Is fitness and health important to you?
  • Or would you prefer somewhere with a top quality bar?

While any of these hotels would provide a great stay, they all have their strengths and weaknesses to consider.

That being said, Sydney might be a sprawling city, but all these hotels are within walking distance of one another. The harbour, the bridge, the bars and the dining – they're never too far away.
