Hotels Sydney

Hi can anyone recommend a good mid range priced hotel or b and b in a good area of Sydney please. Its our first visit and everyone keeps saying to stay in The Rocks or Darling harbour, though I am open to suggestions.

Thanks

What is your definition of mid range?

I agree, the Rocks/Circular Quay is the ideal location, but you will generally pay more pay more there than further back into the city (CBD) or Darling harbour etc. Hotels such as Sydney Harbour Marriott, Intercontinental & Sir Stamford fall into my definition of mid range for that area. B & B Sydney Harbour often gets recommended.

Back a couple of blocks is Travelodge Wynyard.

It will also depend on your dates (saturday nights usually more expensive).

Have a play around with your dates on www.hotelscombined.com.au/City/Sydney.htm gets the best on-line prices from all the sites.

Friends of ours stayed here a couple of years ago and liked it. I've seen other positive comments too but I have never stayed there and it's in The Rocks too.

have a look at this place...right in the heart of the city, be aware it is above a pub - noise may be an issue but one review says it's a quiet pub

Out of curiosity, where did you end up booking? Was it an on-line deal or with the hotel direct?

The post about bed and breakfasts got us thinking about stuff other than hotels and we're going to give Jeffreys St B&B a try - booked direct with them :-)
