Lodging Guide - Sydney Hotels Accommodation:

How to choose the most suitable lodging for your stay in Sydney:

Usually, as you would probably be aware, the main considerations are price, location and services provided by the lodging operator.

However unless you have quite a large budget, the outcome will probably involve a compromise of one or two of these considerations.

Other things to look at when selecting Sydney lodging - The timing of your trip.

In low season, better rates are often provided by lodging suppliers and one can often upgrade the services or the star rating of the accommodation one may choose.

The converse is true of high season (generally Summer time in Sydney) but this will depend on other things such as cultural, sporting or commercial events like trade shows and conventions.

During high season and peak times lodging availability diminishes and demand pushes up prices. At these times, hotels and other Sydney lodging suppliers will usually charge "Rack Rate" - the top rate available for their product.

With all these things to consider, when choosing a hotel or apartment for temporary lodging in Sydney Australia it is essential that that you use a reputable lodging guide that will give you the information you require to identify that the accommodation you are booking is the right hotel or apartment for your lodging requirements and will be available for your stay.

Key points of consideration when choosing Sydney lodging:

When considering the factors that will influence your choice of lodging in Sydney, some things to be aware of are noted below:

The location of your lodging should be close to the area you are most interested in spending your time, wether it is for business reasons or recreation and enjoyment. The area that you will spend most of your time when lodging in Sydney Australia could be in the City of Sydney or it could be on our famous beaches on the north shore of Sydney. The areas within the City are the most popular lodging during the New Year period and festival times as the majority of the events and exhibitions are held in or are close to the Sydney CBD.

Among the most popular areas of Sydney's city proper are, Circular Quay, The Rocks, Darling Harbour, Chinatown, or the Central Business District.

Most of the top end and luxury hotels and Serviced Apartments are in the historic Rocks area and Circular Quay, near the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Naturally prices match the properties and you can expect to pay in excess of AUD300/night to lodge in this part of Sydney. At this end of Sydney, some of the 5 star properties will feature Sydney Harbour view rooms, suites and apartments.

Tourist and 4 star options tend to be a little back from the waterfront and generally do not provided exceptional views. These properties are more than adequate as they still provide a high standard of accommodation and well served by public transport or are in easy walking distance of many of Sydney's famous tourist destinations. Lodging in this range is from A$150-250/night depending on number of occupants or whether you chose a hotel or one of the many furnished and serviced apartment hotels.

3 star tourist lodging options are usually on the fringe of the of the city's central business district - these are mostly hotels with only a couple of budget serviced and furnished apartments among them. Those properties on the fringe of the city centre are usually in the A$100-150 /night range and usually are on good transport routs offering a 5 or 10 minute bus ride to the city centre.

For those that wish to be outside the hustle and bustle of the City and in a more relaxed area to enjoy the lovely sun and sand of Sydney's beaches, you should choose lodging on the north shore or northern beaches of Sydney.

For those that would like to stay closer to nature or wish to explore some of the wine districts outside of Sydney but still want to be within just a few hours journey you can find abundant tourist lodging in districts such as the Hunter Valley, famous for its wine industry or the Blue Mountains with its natural setting, clean air, rich Australian history and beautiful scenery.

Now once you have decided on the lodgings location you should then consider the budget you have. Location may actually be decided by your budget as mentioned, accommodation in the Sydney CBD is generally more expensive than that of accommodation on the outskirts of the CBD, so you may wish to sacrifice a little of the convenience of being in the centre of the City for the benefits of keeping to a budget that is more comfortably within your means. The same can apply to destinations on the North Shore and Northern Beaches. There are locations that are more popular with tourists and as such these destinations will be more expensive to find lodging in as a rule.

The final question you should ask is what level of luxury you would be willing to pay for in your lodging. Would you like to be pampered and have no reservations on indulging your aesthetic and sensory delights, or would your budget suit more a family type lodging, or are you on an even tighter budget requiring only the bare minimum of luxuries. All levels of lodging types can be found within and without the Sydney CBD and M-Power Accommodation can give you a reasonable and helpful appraisal of your options in this regard, while also offering the best prices for the hotels we recommend.
