Sydney is one of the most dynamic destinations on the planet, with untold cultural landmarks, scenic beauty, spectacular shops, restaurants, nightlife and a vibrant arts scene. The home of the UNESCO World Heritage Sydney Opera House, Bondi Beach, Sydney Fish Market, Sydney Aquarium, Wildlife World and Taronga Zoo is without peer in Australia.

One perpetual quandary that daunts many visitors to the capital of New South Wales, however, is where, exactly, to stay? This metropolitan offers scores of diverse 'hoods, handsome enclaves and pretty suburbs. Predictably, the flood of choices can trouble indecisive tourists. Often, the inherent impasse involves the pros and cons of accommodation in the heart of the metropolis, the Central Business District for example, versus hotels that provide easy entry to areas such as Manly Beach and other attractive hamlets.

Some want the best of both worlds and as a result, seek out hotels that offer swift access to city points of interest but also, a hassle-free gateway to the Hunter Valley wine country and UNESCO World Heritage Greater Blue Mountains Area. Indeed, there is much to consider when you endeavour to explore a diverse city.

The simple fact of the matter is that there is no boilerplate, “perfect” accommodation. As a foremost international hub, the progressive city of 4.5 million people has a professional, urbane hospitality industry that caters to the business and leisure traveller, the affluent and budget-conscious tourist and indeed, every possible iteration in between. From boutique hotels to hostels, luxury resorts to bed and breakfasts, the city has it all. What every potential newcomer to the city must know above all else, however, is where to stay in the capital of New South Wales.

More information about Sydney

The area that spans the literal city is the postcard version and veritable face of the city. This is Sydney Opera House, The Domain, Kings Cross, Chinatown and Darling Harbour. Notable inner-city suburbs like Woolloomooloo, Pyrmont, Glebe and Haymarket also reside within the city proper. Most tourists stay here of course, with daily numbers as high 25,000. The total population of the core city area however, is less than 200,000 people. Yes indeed, abundant life prospers outside of the vicinity – with plenty of hotels to choose from as a result.

Northern Beaches

Any locale with “beaches” in the name is sure to spur some tourist interest. The Northern Beaches accomplishes this task with panache on a regular basis. Specific districts that deliver suburban bliss here include Manly, Warringah and Pittwater. For coastal serenity in close proximity to the CBD, look no further.

Eastern Suburbs

While the most (in)famous suburb, Bondi, lures throngs of tourists, other enclaves do flourish east of the city as well. Some encompass the most upscale real estate in Australia, in places like Vaucluse, Rose Bay, Elizabeth Bay and Bellevue Hill. Accommodation options abound here: check out Potts Point, Coogee, Maroubra and Malabar. Bondi hotels of course, always prove popular.

Northern Suburbs

The term “Northern Suburbs”, or alternatively, Central North, Macquarie District or Northern District, is a general alias for a wide swath of land north of the Parramatta River. While largely residential, the Northern Suburbs encompass some of the most beautiful parks in the city, elegant estate homes and copious transport links. Specific suburbs to keep in mind include Hunters Hill, Macquarie Park, Melrose Park and Asquith, which incorporates a portion of beautiful Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.

Other important regions to consider include the North Shore (Upper and Lower), The Forest, The Hills, Inner West, Southern Sydney and Western Sydney. If not for the city's excellent mass transit system, it would almost be immaterial as a tourist to consider room reservations well outside the CBD and inner-city suburbs. Yet precisely because of its public transport sophistication, domestic and international visitors alike can cherry-pick from a wide variety of excellent hotels within a considerable radius of downtown. Thorough research and a basic familiarity with the metro will yield fantastic results!
