Blue Sydney - A Taj Hotel

Blue Sydney - A Taj Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The unique Blue Sydney was originally a 1,310-foot long wharf built in 1911 on Woolloomooloo Bay. The architecture and decor of this luxury boutique hotel retain this history, mixing bits of the industrial warehouse look with a chic, modern design. The 100 rooms and lofts have posh, nautical style, as well as iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi (for a fee) -- but show some minor wear and tear. It's part of the Taj hotel chain, and is certainly one of the most luxurious hotels in Sydney -- located in a popular dining destination, near high-end restaurants and bars. The hotel's own on-site hot spot, WaterBar, is an impressive cathedral-meets-warehouse lounge with an extensive food and cocktail menu, stylish seating, stunning high ceilings and an overall ultra-cool ambiance. But it's a bit removed from more popular areas, such as the Central Business District.

Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour

Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 68 suites at Pullman Quay Grand Suites don't come cheap -- for a reason. These chic one- and two-bedroom apartment-style units look out over peaceful green gardens or the busy but beautiful harbor, and have floor-to-ceiling windows; modern, minimalist decor; big kitchens; dining areas; and cozy living rooms. They're perhaps not quite as luxurious as some may expect for the price, but they're still among Sydney's best accommodations. Amenities include a peaceful indoor pool and small, unexceptional fitness room. The property also features a fine dining restaurant and a trendy bar, both with great harbor views. It's a prime place to stay with an excellent location in Circular Quay, but with rates this high, the fees for Wi-Fi and parking feel like nickel-and-diming.

Quest Potts Point

Quest Potts Point Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Everything about the 70 rooms in the chic Quest Potts Point hotel is luxurious, but small. Bright, stylish rooms have mirrored surfaces to create the illusion of more space, cool striped chairs, and tiny, but very functional, kitchenettes. Bathrooms are floor-to-ceiling marble but aren't entirely private due to fogged glass doors. One perk here is the rooftop terrace, full of seating for taking in the views, and the location in the King's Cross area is great for experiencing the bohemian culture and nightlife of Sydney. Overall, this property provides great value for guests who value aesthetics over square footage.

Medusa Hotel

Medusa Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Medusa Hotel is a quirky, 18-room boutique hotel with artsy flair. It has the look and feel of a converted house, with a cozy fireplace in the lobby and a painting that depicts the property's namesake. Rooms are on the small side, but have a contemporary look with bright accent walls, muted geometric patterns, and modern platform beds. Each room has a kitchenette that features a microwave, coffeemaker, and minibar, and flat-screen TVs are accompanied by DVD players and small stereo systems. All-white bathrooms are basic but functional and come stocked with Aveda bath products. Amenities are few: no pool, fitness center or restaurant, and a one-computer business center. There is a small outdoor courtyard with a slender, decorative pool, however, and guests get free access to a nearby swimming pool and gym. The Darlinghurst location is within walking distance of the bars and clubs in Kings Cross and on Oxford Street.

Kirketon Hotel Sydney

Kirketon Hotel Sydney Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Located in the lively Darlinghurst neighborhood near Woolloomooloo and Kings Cross, the Kirketon Hotel Sydney is a 40-room, art-inspired boutique hotel that fuses contemporary style with classic Parisian influences. The rooms have sophisticated decor, crisp white bedding, coffeemakers, mini-fridges, DVD players, and flat-screen TVs -- but they're a bit dark, and bathrooms need updating (the tile grout is dirty, and the odd showerheads are stuck to the ceiling). Standard Rooms are tiny, and are meant for single occupancy. The hotel itself lacks a fitness center, but guests are offered free access to a nearby gym. The speakeasy-styled cocktail bar, Eau de Vie, is a definite highlight -- it's one of the trendiest spots in the city.

Diamant Hotel Sydney

Diamant Hotel Sydney Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Situated outside Sydney's Central Business District near Rushcutters Bay Park, Diamant Hotel -- part of the 8Hotels collection -- is an upscale, 80-room boutique. The style throughout is trendy and contemporary; the lobby has plush, electric blue seating, and rooms have clean-lined, retro-modern furniture, dramatic headboards, and crisp white bedding. Convenient room amenities include iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and stocked minibars. Some suites -- such as the courtyard suite -- feature private terraces and great views of the city. Guests have free access to the big and bright Anytime Fitness gym, but there is no on-site restaurant or pool.

Park 8 Hotel

Park 8 Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Park 8 offers hip, apartment-style rooms in Sydney's Central Business District. The 36 rooms have 60s-inspired, minimalist decor, as well as kitchenettes with mini-fridges and electric kettles. The rooms are large, and go up in price from standard to the deluxe to the loft room, a two-level space with lots of light. Bathrooms are bright and sleek with vessel sinks, and some have free-standing tubs. The location of the hotel is fantastic for seeing Sydney, and the price is usually fair.

Sir Stamford at Circular Quay

Sir Stamford at Circular Quay Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The upscale Sir Stamford at Circular Quay is located next to the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Opera House. The hotel partly resides in a building that dates back to the 1800s -- and is currently listed in the National Heritage Register -- and its classically elegant façade and interior design reflect this history. The property is grand, to be sure, but it's also a bit past its prime. The spacious, bright rooms are charming and homey, with some lovely antiques, but the decor scheme is dated; the marble bathrooms are the clear highlight. The European style in the lobby and common spaces still impresses, however: In addition to Georgian antiques, eight fireplaces and 550 crystal chandeliers, the hotel also contains one of Australia’s largest private collections of fine art. The acclaimed on-site restaurant offers beautiful views of Sydney Harbour, while the stylish bar has a wide selection of high teas, wine and cocktails.

Pensione Hotel Sydney

Pensione Hotel Sydney Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Located on the fringe of the Chinatown district, this upper-middle-range, 72-room boutique has a historic facade and modern interiors. Each of the 68 rooms are small but clean and filled with character; they feature crisp white bedding, whimsical prints, and flat-screen TVs. Sleek bathrooms offer stall showers complete with rainforest showerheads. One big perk here is the guest lounge with comfy seating, a small kitchenette, computers for guest use, vending machines, and laundry facilities. It's a small property, so guests shouldn't expect much else in the way of amenities.

Altamont Hotel Sydney

Altamont Hotel Sydney Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This Colonial mansion turned nightclub turned boutique hotel has a rock 'n roll history, having been frequented by celebrities like Madonna and the Rolling Stones back when it was known as Cauldron Nightclub. The building has a slightly industrial feel, with exposed concrete floors, though wood furnishings help give it a homier vibe. The lobby lounge features a pool table and comfortable sofas, as well as conveniences like a toaster and hotplate (the hotel does offer a free daily breakfast as well). The 13 rooms at the Altamont are basic, with some visible wear and tear and dingy bathrooms (the exposed showers make it hard not to flood the rest of the bathroom with water). They are reasonably clean, though, and have large flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges. Business travelers may also want to look elsewhere, as there is no restaurant, business center, or fitness room here, and Wi-Fi, though free, is unreliable. It's a decent value option for visitors looking to be close to the Kings Cross nightlife scene.
