Hotel Bondi – Prime location facing Australia’s quintessential beach.
Considerably better than an average pub room, and one of the remarkably few options at arguably Australia’s most famous beach, recent renovations have made a significant difference. The simple budget-priced rooms are compact and open out to a shared courtyard with street views and partial sea views. The triple rooms are ideal for small groups, while families have a decent choice: the Mini Suite, with two double beds, a kitchenette, and a balcony; or the Family Suite, with one or two bedrooms, a kitchenette, and a lounge area. Understandably popular, the Premier Suites face the sea (100m away), with a window-side sofa and sizable balcony. But, of course, it’s all about the setting: on a corner along the esplanade at an iconic beach surrounded by cafés and bars. What’s not to like?
