Copyright 2006 Tom Dinic While images of Finding Nemo and other opera house references might come to mind when you think of Sydney, there is much more for the budget-conscious tourist to explore. However, finding the right place to stay is all-important to the trip as well as the wallet. You don’t want to spend a lot of money for a place to keep your clothes while you tour the area. When you’re looking to stay in the heart of the city, travelers have a few options to choose from. The Vulcan Hotel (http://www.vulcanhotel.

With newly remodeled rooms and many amenities, this hotel allows its guests to be within walking distance of Darling Harbor as well as the city’s center. The Vulcan Café is in the hotel and offers guests the chance to stay close to their room, should they choose. With prices as low as $79USD per night, it’s easy to see why Vulcan Hotel Sydney is one of the top choices for Sydney lodging.
The Savoy Double Bay Hotel ( http://www.savoyhotel.com.au/ ) is also at the heart of the city and allows the guest to be a part of the city life or relax in their comfortable suite. Each of the rooms at the Savoy Double Bay is simply decorated for style and comfort, while the rooms include everything from television to in-room cable. All of these features come for the same low price as the Vulcan. When you’re looking to get away from the city, there are also plenty of suburbia Australian hotels to choose from.
