Top tips for finding the perfect Sydney hotel

If you want to stay near the city’s ferry and train services, you’ll find many choices near Darling Harbour. There’s the Holiday Inn Darling Harbour, which is right on the doorstep of public transport. Another option is the Song Hotel Sydney, which is a little farther away, but still within walking distance and less expensive than some of the harbor-side options.
If you’re after budget hotels in Sydney, then there are plenty of options in Darlinghurst. Try Nate's Place Backpackers for a good, cheap option. Consider the ibis budget Sydney East, or check out hotels available in the George Street area, with the Megaboom City Hotel offering a no-frills base. Alternatively, look at the Sydney Hotel CBD on nearby Liverpool Street for a convenient spot close to the city center.
For those seeking a beachfront hotel, you’ll find some good choices in Manly, like the Sebel Sydney Manly Beach, which has comfortable rooms, some with ocean views. The Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach provides upscale accommodation with views of the ocean.
If you’re looking for 5-star options away from the waterfront, try the Sheraton on the Park, which is close to the Hyde Park Barracks Museum and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, for a culture fix in the city.
