Sydney is where most travelers start their trip to Australia. It’s the country’s largest city (almost 20% of the entire population lives here), boasting incredible beaches, a fun nightlife, and lots of museums and galleries. I’ve been visiting the city since 2007 and always have an amazing time. Sydney is gorgeous and I never get tired of admiring the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. But while the city has plenty to keep you busy, it is a bit spread out. That means picking the right place to stay is important. Over the years, I’ve stayed at countless hotels. There’s a lot in the city and picking one can be overwhelming. Here’s my list of the best hotels in Sydney:

  1. Mercantile Hotel

    Located in the historic Rocks neighborhood, this three-star hotel is just five minutes walk from the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge. I especially like that it’s home to Australia’s longest-running Irish pub, where you can enjoy regular live music along with your pint. A mid-range hotel, the rooms here are simple, minimalist, and practical. While it’s not super arty or unique, the rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. There’s free Wi-Fi, AC, and a coffee/tea maker in each room too. The bathrooms, while small, are well-kept and everything is in good condition. There’s no breakfast available, but there are lots of options nearby. The emphasis here is more on location than amenities, but you still get good value. It’s the best place to stay in The Rocks on a budget.

  2. Coogee Bay Boutique Hotel

    This breezy four-star hotel is in Coogee Bay, a beachy neighborhood southeast of the city. I love that the hotel is just a two-minute walk to the beach. All the rooms here are spacious and airy, with beachy colors and decorations…

  3. Crystalbrook Albion

    South of downtown in Surry Hills, this five-star luxury hotel is located in a gorgeous brick heritage building that was once a former convent. The property is elegantly designed, taking inspiration from both the 20’s and the 70s…

  4. Glasgow Arms Hotel

    This hotel is located above a beautiful old pub. It’s not particularly stylish and the design is a bit dated, but there’s a free continental breakfast served each morning and the hotel is just a five-minute walk from Darling Harbour…

  5. The Darling at The Star

    This is a massive five-star hotel home to a spa, casino, and over 20 bars and restaurants. I really like that they have a Turkish bath, but there’s also a heated outdoor swimming pool (which has its own bar)…

  6. Hotel Bondi

    This three-star boutique hotel has both private and shared balconies with sprawling views overlooking the popular Bondi Beach. Everything is modern and the design has a simple, minimalist feel. The rooms are large and bright and include everything you need…

  7. Sydney Potts Point

    This four-star apartment hotel boasts a rooftop terrace with views over the city and is located just five-minutes from the rambunctious nightlife of Kings Cross. Most of the rooms have kitchenettes and there are also BBQ facilities on the rooftop if you want to cook outdoors…

Sydney is a fun city. I always love my time here when I visit. And while it is a large city, by staying in one of the hotels above you’ll be well positioned to see the sights and make the most out of your trip.
