Mapplr’s favorite hotels in Sydney


Sydney is such a wonderful place to visit if you like the ocean, nightlife, nature, good food and sunshine. My favorite activity: swimming in one of the many rockpools in the city. Above is a photo of me at the Coogee Beach rock pool. I’ve already posted my favorite restaurants in Sydney, now it’s time for my favorite hotels. If you want to stay right at the beach, opt for Coogee Beach. But if you want a funky, artistic area, go for Darlinghurst.
