Being the biggest, most populous and popular city in Australia, you can believe that there is just about any and every type of hotel in Sydney to choose from. For those with lavish needs, there is high-class, 5-star hotels, and for those with meager needs, there’s budget hotels and even some nice Sydney hostels. Choosing the right hotel will probably come down to location and price.
Hotels nearest to major attractions will generally cost more money. In Sydney, these areas would be around Darling Harbour and Sydney Harbour since those would provide the coveted water views. Hyde Park is also a great area to look for a Sydney hotel that would be fairly central and close to both attractions and public transportation.
Budget hotels in Sydney are scattered about, but there are a few good ones located near Sydney Central Station. Sydney Central Station is the main transportation hub, so you’ll be certain you can quickly and easily get anywhere you want in Sydney, whether it be by bus travel or train travel, if you are living close by. This also comes with the added bonus of saving money by not having to hire a taxi when coming in with your luggage.
Prices for hotels in Sydney can range anywhere from $150 to $550 AUD and higher per night depending on location and class. It is possible to snag a decent no frills room for around the $100 range — less if you are open to spending time in a private room in a Sydney hostel.
