5 Star hotels Sydney Australia
No other city in Australia rivals Sydney when it comes to age, size, or the number of nationalities that inhabit it. Although the suburbs of Australia's most populous city spread out as far as 100kms from the central district, the majority of Sydney's most luxurious five-star hotels are situated in the relatively small area containing most of its famous landmarks. The Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge can both be seen from the windows of The Westin Sydney and most other high-end central business district and The Rocks hotels.Another outstanding Sydney attraction, the Royal Botanic Gardens, is situated immediately south of the Sydney Opera House. The first colonial village established in the city can be found near the Harbour Bridge in the sophisticated The Rocks district. The world famous Bondi Beach, on the other hand, stretches across the Eastern Suburbs. Sydney Tower, the tallest structure in both the city and all of Australia, is often the first sight ferry and cruise ship passengers see as they enter Sydney from the vibrant Circular Quay.
There is a range of options for all travelers. The most popular hotel in Sydney is the The Langham, Sydney, which has been booked 5 times from our Hotels.com verified guests. Our guests also highly recommended ADGE Boutique Apartment Hotel in Sydney as it has been reserved 5 times.
Sydney is easy to navigate despite its endlessly growing size, thanks to its widespread public transportation network. The Blue Mountains, Parramatta, and other nearby rural retreats, however, are still much easier to reach by car than by train, bus, or ferry.
- Sydney Opera HouseThe unusual roof design of Sydney's world famous Opera House was inspired by the city's long maritime history and is intended to resemble the sails on the ships that carried the first European settlers to Australia. More than a million spectators attend the more than 1, 500 opera, ballet, symphony, and theatre performances which take place at this UNESCO World Heritage site each year.
- Sydney Harbour BridgeThe districts of North Sydney and The Rocks are connected by this elegant bridge which many locals call the 'Coathanger.' Visitors can explore the bridge and enjoy its stunning views by cycling, walking, or climbing as high as its tallest point. Special suits and safety equipment are required to make the three-hour climb to the bridge's peak. The view of the illuminated Sydney Opera House and its surrounding skyline is spectacular.
- Hyde ParkNo stretch of public parkland in the whole of Australia is older than this park in Sydney Central Business District (CBD), north of the city harbour. Like its London namesake, Sydney's Hyde Park is a scenic and quiet oasis in the heart of a large and sprawling city. At least one five-star hotel, the Sheraton on the Park, is located on the park grounds, while the Pullman Sydney Hyde Park stands directly next door to the park's signature Archibald Fountain, gigantic Nagoya Gardens chess set, and avenues filled with fig trees.
Eating and drinking and shopping nearby
Different Sydney districts specialize in cuisines from different nations, but the waterfront areas of Woolloomooloo Wharf, Darling Harbour, and East Circular Quay contain the city's greatest variety of international restaurants. A unique dining experience popular among tourists and locals alike is a lunch of yum cha at any of Sydney's several Cantonese restaurants.Most Sydney nightclubs may have casual dress codes. The Queen Victoria Building, a 19th century sandstone building, now boasts over 400 shops arranged by cost. Cheaper shops are situated on the basement level, while designer boutiques stand on the top floor.
Sydney's public transport network is widespread, but not always well integrated. The Transport Infoline telephone and online network, Circular Quay's TransitShops, and a free mobile and tablet app called TripGo are the easiest ways to navigate the city's ferry, bus, light rail, and commuter rail networks. Private ferries and special event buses are among the few city public transit options which do not accept MyMulti tickets, which are available in daily or weekly formats.
