The 5 Best Hotels in Sydney
This sophisticated high-rise is set within the old Treasury Building. Rooms are similar, with only the layout and views differing. Some offer vast panoramas of the iconic Harbour Bridge and/or Opera House. The large indoor pool isn’t so inviting, but the Health Club gym, spa and sauna are better than most. It is convenient to the city centre and transport hub at Circular Quay.

Lovingly restored along an old wharf, this hotel features the original beams and walls, as well as ironwork along the ceiling. All rooms are colourfully decorated, with contemporary furnishings, while the narrow Loft features a separate lounge area and is useful for families. All rooms offer views of the harbour, and the indoor pool is particularly appealing.

Built within a converted warehouse on a pier almost underneath the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, this hotel maintains the original structures, so rooms contain wooden beams, ironwork across the ceilings and undersized windows. The standard rooms offer an ambience rarely experienced in city-centre high-rises, but more colour is needed. It’s within a short stroll of The Rocks (for cafés), Circular Quay (for transport) and the Sydney Opera House.
