Sydney Hotels

The hotels in Sydney offer something for every taste and budget, from international 5-star chains to chic boutique hotels in Sydney’s trendy suburbs.

The following hotels in Sydney are divided into three categories:

Luxurious (over A $ 300)
Moderate (A $ 100 to A $ 300)
Inexpensive (up to A $ 100).

These are minimum rates for a standard double room with breakfast.

A 10% hotel tax, commonly known as bed tax, is charged in central Sydney. This will be added to the invoice, but is already included in the prices shown here. Most hostels are exempt from bed tax.


Hotel InterContinental

This luxurious 5-star hotel near Circular Quay is located in the restored Treasury, a historic landmark of the business and government district.

Many rooms have views of the harbor and some even offer panoramic views of the Royal Botanical Gardens, the harbor and the Opera House. The sumptuous Executive Suites have separate work and living rooms, and all rooms are equipped with cable television, two-line phones and voicemail. Even the daily newspaper is included in the service.

A special feature of the InterContinental are the private dining rooms, which are ideal for high-class business lunches or special occasions. The business center has two studios for video conferencing and all conceivable services.

The BLUE (formerly W Sydney) has probably the boldest concept of any new Sydney hotel. It is located in a converted old harbor building on Woolloomooloo Bay. The exterior of the building has largely remained true to the original, as has the internal structure made of steel girders. The renovation revealed perfectly staged industrial chic.

The rooms are elegantly and modernly furnished and have large desks, broadband internet connection and two telephones.

The view from Park Hyatt is incomparable due to its location on Sydney Harbor. You have a choice of a number of room types, including a luxurious standard program of shoe polish, turndown service, bathrobes, free entry to the fitness center and 24-hour butler service.

The hotel restaurant offers a fantastic view of the harbor and the opera house through the room-high glass doors. The hotel facilities include a wellness center, a fitness center and a great swimming pool on the hotel roof.

The best that boutique hotels have to offer can be found in the establishment. There are only 31 rooms in this super chic and elegant hotel, including two penthouse suites that differ in color. High warehouse-style ceilings, strong colors and black floorboards dominate the ambience. If you like it a bit more reserved, you can choose a room with a softer color palette. Each room is equipped with a desk, a minibar and a spacious bathroom. In addition to side trips to its various clubs, bars and restaurants, a visit to the award-winning hotel restaurant est is also worthwhile  .

Hotel Altamont

Hotel Altamount, housed in a Georgian-style villa from 1830, has seen many familiar faces – the most famous being Mick Jagger. But despite its impressive guest list, it remains remarkably affordable. The concept of the boutique hotel is fresh and bold: instead of conventional corridors, there is a hotel street from which all rooms branch off. Beautiful courtyards and a spectacular roof garden convey the feeling of freedom.

The Kirketon

The award-winning Kirketon means chic design with lots of stainless steel and many mirrors. Bright colors on the walls, elegant bathrooms and retro furniture are standard. The 40 guest rooms are furnished with mohair carpets typical of the Kirketon, designer toiletries, the finest bed linen and fluffy bathrobes. The hotel restaurant and bar are located on the ground floor.

Central Railway Hotel

The centrally located Central Railway Hotel is located near the main train station. Chinatown and the Circular Quay are also in the immediate vicinity. The concept of the hotel is based on rooms in a practical apartment style, paired with typical hotel services. Different room designs are available, optionally also with sofa beds, which are well suited for families or groups.

Travelodge Phillip Street

This simple hotel in the banking district offers the budget-conscious traveler the usual Travelodge comfort. The rooms are professionally furnished and have a bathroom, cable TV and a kitchenette with a microwave. There are five rooms equipped for the disabled. The Quay is just a five-minute walk away and Martin Place is just around the corner, but unfortunately the hotel doesn’t have a nice view.
