Sydney hotels for every budget

The largest number of hotels is concentrated in the centre of Sydney:

  • The Rocks

The Rocks is a historic quarter that preserves the colonial past of the city. The hotels are small, and prices are high: $300 – $450 for a double room with all amenities. There are a couple of inexpensive hotels, but there the bathroom will have to be shared with other guests.

  • Central Business District

Central Business District or CBD is the heart of city life. There are many shops, cafes and tourist attractions. The choice of accommodation is much greater. Room with all amenities will cost $200 – $300.

  • Darling Harbor and Pyrmont

Darling Harbor and Pyrmont are picturesque districts, which are located around the harbor of Darling Harbor. Skyscrapers, a harbor, a fish market, museums, an aquarium, a casino, many restaurants – you can find something to do and see there. Prices do not differ much from CBD.

  • Haymarket

Haymarket is the district of the central station, market, and Chinatown. This is an attractive place for every tourist. There you can find many inexpensive cafes and places to eat. Traffic interchange is very convenient: you can reach almost every place from Haymarket. Prices are slightly lower comparing to neighbouring areas: $140 – $190 for a room.

A little farther from the city centre are located:

  • Kings Cross

Kings Cross is the entertainment district of Sydney. This district has the reputation of the worst place in the city. There are many inexpensive hostels where you can get a bed for $25 – $40, and a double room for $100 – $150. But the area is still specific; not everyone will like it.

  • Darlinghurst

Darlinghurst – a district famous for its nightlife, cafes, bars, fashion boutiques, is popular among the local LGBT community. The cost of accommodation in hotels varies from $150 – $250.

If you are looking for a place, which is near the sea, pay attention to:

  • Eastern suburbs

The most attractive places to stay are the beaches of Bondi Beach and Coogee beach. This is a paradise for surfers, backpackers, and fans of beach bliss. If you pay for essay and forget about stress, you will have time to enjoy all the attractions of Eastern Suburbs.

There are both cheap hostels and expensive hotels, as well as cafes, bars, shops, and everything you need for a comfortable stay. By bus from the centre can be reached in half an hour. Double room costs $130 – $250.

  • Manly

Manly isn’t suitable for excursion or tour: there are no many sights worth seeing. But if you are interested in a quiet and calm atmosphere of the peaceful resort, which is located near the beach and you are not confused by half-hour trips by ferry, this place is perfect. The cost of accommodation in hotels $120 – $250.

Holiday accommodation

Holiday accommodation is a rented accommodation for the weekend. People do not frequently use holiday accommodation because the stop in one place is extremely short, only one or two days. If you stay for a week, then this option is for you.

You can find cheap holiday rentals in Sydney. In The Rocks, such a flat with the possibility of spending 1-2 nights will cost you $139.

If you decided to stay in Sydney for a week, a flat overlooking the bridge in Kirribilli would cost you $850 per week. Pyrmont also offers best prices for holiday rentals. Fancy and comfortable studio in Pyrmont will cost you $750 – $800 per week. If you came for a New Year’s celebration, then don’t miss the greatest fireworks off the four barges and Harbour Bridge.
