With two World Heritage sites, a cosmopolitan population, vibrant shopping districts, hip nightlife, historic sites, designer boutiques, fine dining, stunning cultural attractions, and multiple family friendly venues, it is no wonder that Sydney is one of the busiest cities in the Asia Pacific. Your last minute Sydney hotel deals are remarkably plentiful, and your Sydney holiday does not have to cost a fortune.
Harbour views generally command a kingly price, but some Sydney Harbour hotels are actually quite affordable. Rooms can range from $85 a night for a three-star hotel in Double Bay to $795 a night for a five-star hotel in The Rocks. Harbour hotels with a view of the Opera House tend to be on the upper end of the price range. They are well worth the investment, however, as you will realize the first morning you watch the sun reflecting on the white sails emerging from the blue waters of Sydney Harbour.
Five-star hotels, on the other hand, may not be worth the extra money. Gourmet dining facilities and 24-hour room service, concierge and butler services, on-site spa facilities, indoor pool, childcare or nanny services, shoeshine and laundry facilities, and more are often available at these pampering resort-style hotels. You may enjoy the luxury of a five-star hotel, but it can often feel very orchestrated and even over the top, particularly when you have an entire city’s worth of hot spots to explore.
Sydney has plenty of other hotels and accommodations to fit every need and budget. Three- and four-star hotels are often very reasonably priced and are conveniently located throughout Sydney and its suburbs. Boutique hotels can provide you with a cozy or quirky environment and superior service, while serviced apartments are generally far more affordable and comfortable for those spending a longer period of time in the city.
You can locate great deals by knowing ahead of time where you want to stay in the city, what you need or want most from your accommodations, and how much or little you really want to spend. The more you know about what you want, the more you can narrow down your options for Sydney accommodations.
