a number of options you should consider.

of the hotels near Circular Quay offer top-notch service for someone
looking for somewhere really nice to stay in Sydney. There are many

things to do in the City of Sydney
would be my personal choice of where to stay in Sydney as it gives
you the perfect excuse to spend lots of time on the Manly Ferry.
I've been on the ferry countless times and have yet to get bored
with the views. The Manly Ferry is listed as the top
thing to do in Sydney.
of the best hotels in Manly are within walking distance of the beaches,
and the area is teeming with guesthouses, backpacking hostels and
many other types of Sydney accommodation.
a similar fashion to Manly, look for Sydney accommodation by the
harbour with a ferry wharf nearby. Examples such as Potts Point,
Balmain, North Sydney, Mosman and Rose Bay are all good places to
be based. Just make sure you memorise your ferry timetable or have
a copy with you.
Potts Point is ideally positioned in the heart of the Potts Point and Kings Cross entertainment precinct. This four star hotel features 227 stylishly appointed and modern rooms with new decor to complement the lively surrounds and magnificent Sydney
Harbour views. Only minutes away from Sydney Centre, Mercure Sydney Potts Point is ideal for corporate or leisure travellers. Along with a restaurant and bar the hotel features five modern meeting rooms and an open air terrace.
accommodation on the fringe of Sydney is often a good way to save
a few dollars, just remember to factor in the additional cost of
transport, particularly if it's likely to be taxis.
Hills, Woolloomooloo, Darlinghurst, Prymont, Ultimo, Broadway, and
City Fringe includes areas like Surry Hills, Woolloomooloo, Darlinghurst,
Prymont, Ultimo, Broadway, and Redfern. Lots of student shares and
low cost options are available in these districts, though traditional
hotels appear too. A walk into the city could take you anything
from 25 to 45 minutes.
Beach is there to be seen but traffic in and out from the beach
front can be a nightmare. Bondi Junction is a better option and
it has a train link. It is the gateway to the eastern suburbs of
Sydney. Shopping and dining are major activities throughout the
area and affordable accommodation is abundant.
Airport - Kingsford Smith
in southern half of Sydney near Botany Bay, Sydney Airport is not
the most convenient of locations, but it does have abundant transportation
links. If you have a late or early flight, a hotel located near
the airport can still be a viable option. Just check with the hotel's
staff on your travel options into the city.
Northern Beaches of Sydney
Northern Beaches are referred to as God's Country by the locals.
Distance from the city might be an issue with if you choose to base
your stay in Sydney in this particular slice of paradise. No trains
could be another. The Northern Beaches is perhaps a second trip
location. This area is, however, a great choice for a day trip or
weekend with quite a few bed and breakfasts, hostels, guest houses
and serviced apartments available throughout the region.
getting to Pittwater Youth Hostel is fun. Although if you have a
heavy backpack less so. Travel up to Church Point in Sydney's Northern
Beaches on the banks of 'Pittwater'. Get the ferry across the water.
Then it's a 15 minute hike up a hill through Ku-ring-gai Chase National
Park. As for the accommodation:
lodge nestled over Morning Bay in Ku-ring-gai National Park. This
hostel is an easy escape from the busy city life of Sydney and ideal
for groups. Attractions include bush walks to lookouts and Aboriginal
engravings, plus from the hostel you can see native birds, wallabies,
possums and goannas." YHA

Western Suburbs of Sydney offer budget accommodation options but
you are more likely to need a car.
You will miss out a little bit on Sydney Harbour but you can catch
a ferry from Parramatta.
Lower North Shore of Sydney (North Sydney to Mosman) is a great
location but expect more commuting. The Upper North Shore is very
pleasant, green and leafy but is some distance for the Sydney's
main attractions. The North Shore train line can be problematic
and the Pacific Highway, which takes you into the city, is colourful
in a red, amber and green kind of a way.
