Want to know about about hotels in Sydney Australia? I personally visit each hotel then review other visitors' comments too so you get the full picture.
Hotels in Sydney Australia are expensive. So it's important to find the one that suits both your taste and your pocket.
With this in mind I've visited each of these hotels and, as well, read pretty much everything that's published about them. Then I've provided an easy to read summary.
No hotel is perfect. I tell you both the good and the bad. You'll see guests' comments as well and a recommendation as to whether it's the right hotel for you.
A bit about Sydney hotels:
If a hotel is recommended here you can expect decent service and courteous staff who work to make your stay a good one. These are non-negotiable requirements.
Now let's go find find your hotel . . .
It's hard to beat the Sydney Intercontinental Hotel for the city's most stunning club floor lounge with wrap-around harbour views.
A short stroll to the Opera House and very handily located for ferries, it's also close to Circular Quay, the Rocks and the Botanical Gardens.
BLUE Sydney, a boutique Taj hotel, used to be W Hotel Sydney. It's different: architecturally distinctive and chic.
One bay around from Farm Cove and the Opera House, away from the city centre's hustle and bustle, the old Finger Wharf in Woolloomooloo, has been sympathetically remodelled as a hotel and luxury apartment complex jutting out over the water.
Location, luxury, service and stunning views. That's the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney. What's not to like? Travellers rate it among the very best. Somewhat pricey of course.
Classic, understated luxury and top notch service.
At the harbour end of town with a direct train link to the airport, a public transport hub and close to most attractions.
Comfort, central CBD location and art deco styling define the Grace Hotel Sydney Australia. It's hard to go wrong here if you like the more traditional hotel style.
It's an easy walk to Darling Harbour, Chinatown, all the major shopping streets and malls and many of the city's best restaurants, cafés and bars.
A slightly longer walk to the Opera House and the Rocks.
Trendy shoppers can stay at the Hilton Hotel Sydney. Opposite the Queen Victoria Building, close to the new upmarket Westfield Shopping Mall, it's smart, modern and central.
The Hilton Sydney has a stylish contemporary feel - soaring ceilings, lots of glass, clean lines, open spaces and good design.
Looking for a budget hotel in a top Sydney location? Hotel Ibis Sydney in Darling Harbour trades frills for economy.
This 3½ star budget hotel in a great location provides a very small room, functional rather than luxurious; minimal additional services; a beautiful city view on the harbour side; lots of bars, restaurants and shopping nearby and easy walking distance to many attractions.
If you don't have too much luggage, plan to be out all day or just need a well-located place to sleep that doesn't cost the earth then this one could be for you.
Of all the 4 star Sydney CBD hotels, The Menzies Hotel Sydney is the closest to the harbour.
Otherwise, the harbour end of town is 5 star hotel territory. Which makes The Menzies Sydney pretty special.
An older hotel, it's perfectly located for sightseeing, entertainment, shopping and transport. And it's a good for families too.
On the edge of the business district, the family friendly Mercure Sydney is among the few hotels in Sydney Australia that allow smoking on some floors.
Trade off a short walk into the city for a real price saving on your Sydney hotel room. That's smart thinking.
Because it's right next to Central Station it is at the hub of all Sydney's transport links. So it's easy to get to wherever you want to go.
