Four Star Sydney hotels

Most popular areas in Sydney for 4-star hotels

Sydney's quirky character is reflected in its eclectic range of hotels, and there are oodles of 4-star digs offering creature comforts and style. One of the most popular areas for these is the youthful suburb of Darlinghurst, where boutique coffee shops abut independent art galleries. Around Hyde Park are many quality chain hotels, offering up modern comforts to business travelers looking for quick access to the CBD. Then there’s the hotel options in The Rocks district, which are often housed in old Victorian depots or beautiful 19th-century buildings.

Top 4-star hotels in Sydney

The Holiday Inn Old Sydney is often talked about as one of the top 4-star options in the city. The reasons why might have something to do with its exquisite redbrick exterior, the location in the midst of The Rocks, and that al fresco rooftop pool with views over the Opera House. The ultra-modern Travelodge Wynyard, which sits shrouded by the skyscrapers of Barangaroo, boasts a medley of spacious, comfortable rooms and a fitness center to boot. Then there's the prestigious Four Points Hotel which offers suites and private rooms with breathtaking panoramas over Darling Harbour.

Where to find the best restaurants in Sydney

The restaurants that crowd around the docks of East Circular Quay have plenty to offer in the way of al fresco dining, not to mention views of Harbour Bridge. In north Sydney, the bustling business area of Chatswood has lots to satisfy that post-work appetite, with cocktail joints and oriental fusion kitchens nestled between its skyscrapers. Alternatively, head down to the crisscrossing grid between George and Dixon Street, to discover a patchwork of enchanting Cantonese eateries touting dim sum and noodle soups below the pagodas of Sze Yup Temple and Taoist shrines.

The most popular things to do in Sydney

Sightseeing in Sydney starts and ends with the famous quaysides of Sydney Harbour. Come here to traverse the arches of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and gawp at the great arched features of the Opera House. Then, delve into the winding cobble lanes and alleys of the old Rocks, where lanterns swing next to old Victorian pubs. Meanwhile, on the north side of town, the green lawns and enclosures of Taronga Zoo beckon, with more than 100 years of showcasing everything from orangutans to platypuses to snapping alligators to sea lions. That's backed up by the Ferris wheels and adrenaline-inducing coasters of Luna Park – also on the north edge of the harbor – and the beautiful pine-dotted isles and clifftops of the Sydney Harbour National Park – jutting out into the South Pacific further to the east.

Best ways to get around Sydney

Sydney enjoys a well-developed public transport system. It's headed by a grid of light rail connections that link popular tourist spots like Darling Harbour, Chinatown, the CBD, and Sydney Fish Market on just one line. This is backed up by a great network of public buses, which can also be used to reach the beaches on the eastern fringes of the metropolis. Adding to that is a fantastic selection of water taxis that flit across the waters of Sydney Harbour from morning to night, and a good Uber and local taxi scene to boot.
