Sydney Accommodation

Sydney's iconic landmarks, packed events calendar and sunny weather make it an obvious choice for a city break. What's less obvious in such a large city is where to stay, with different neighbourhoods all having their own distinctive charms.

Sydney hotels range from budget backpacker hostels and guesthouses to 5-star luxury. Whether you prefer to search for Sydney airport hotels, find a place stay in the CBD or by the beach, read Skyscanner Australia's guide to the best hotels in Sydney that suit your interests and your price range.

Where to stay in Sydney

Hotels Sydney CBD

There's no beating Sydney city centre if you want fast access to famous sights like Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, cultural attractions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art and the main shopping avenues. Darling Harbour has family-friendly attractions like Sydney Aquarium and Wildlife World, while the green spaces of Hyde Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens help you get in touch with nature in the city.

Inner East

For nights out in Sydney, the Inner East comprising Darlinghurst, Kings Cross, Paddington and Woolloomooloo has a huge variety of restaurants and entertainment to keep you busy, from nightclubs to comedy clubs. Very LGBT-friendly, this part of Sydney has cheaper hotels than the CBD, but choose your accommodation carefully if you want to be sure of a sound sleep!

The Beaches

Staying near Sydney's beaches puts the sand, sea and gourmet restaurants on your doorstep. Hotels near world-famous Bondi Beach are likely to be on the higher end of the city’s price range, but you can find better deals by comparing beachfront B&Bs and cheap hotels in Bronte, Clovelly, Coogee and Maroubra.

There are more beaches than you could ever have the time to visit. Not to mention great restaurants and multiple surrounding national parks that all well worth a visit.

Take a ferry to Sydney zoo. See an opera in the world famous opera house. Walk in the park and listen to the bird soundwhuch is so different to the UK. Checkout the harbour and take a boat trip around the bay. Climb the bridge and pay a visit to the other side of the bridge where you'll find cafes and bars.

Just another visit to city. Very vibrant, very energetic but lack of positive emotions - which only found at tourist attractions
