List of the best accommodation in Sydney CBDI’ve focused the location within the city centre (CBD) so you can walk to the main attractions, restaurants, cafes, bars, and have easy access to public transport. If this is your first time visiting Sydney or you’re on a short stay you want to be in the heart of the action!

Each property had to meet a criteria to make the list and for my research I used the Booking.com website.

Why book your accommodation in Sydney with Booking.com?

Booking.com is the world leader in booking accommodation online and has over 800,000 properties worldwide. I like that you can book a variety of Sydney accommodation types on the one site – hotels, apartments, and guesthouses, even holiday homes – and I love how simple their website is to use!

With Booking.com you get free cancellation on most rooms and a best price guarantee. Plus, they have verified reviews from guests who have actually stayed at the property!

  1. Last summer, I wen to Australia with my husband. And it was one hell ride. We rented a campervan and explored the interiors of that country rather than visiting the Sydney Harbors and the likes. I remeber we visited Tilbury restaurant in Sydney. It’s a fancy pub that is more wine bar and bistro in Woolloomooloo. Pop upstairs for a cocktail from their gin or vodka list at an outdoor table. We ordered a light lunch of Greek lamb gyros and a bowl of beer battered fries. It was the best restaurant in the town. Thought sharing such experience.

  2. We love traveling, thanks for encouraging more people to travel to the great city of Sydney. Would love to colab in the future. Can’t wait for your next post. Will certainly keep an eye out for it! All the best!

  3. Great article, for those looking for a beach stay close to the City I would also like to suggest looking at Coogee Beach and Bondi Beach, although not in CBD both are a 15 minute Uber away or a 25 minute run on public transport. If you want the beach but to be close to CBD check these out.
