The Best Hotels in Darlinghurst, Sydney

SydneyFlickr user Murray

Darlinghurst manages to be hip and elegant, while also leafy, and very close to the centre of Sydney, which is what makes many of the best hotels in Darlinghurst so appealing. It’s also got some of the most interesting places to eat and drink in town, a fantastic bookshop, and it hosts Sydney’s Mardi Gras.

Darlinghurst is an arty area as well, this is where you’ll find the National Art School - in what used to be a prison - the Australian Design Centre and the Australian Centre for Photography. It’s also where you’ll find the Brett Whiteley Studio, preserved as a gallery after his death and now home to some of his best work. There are numerous private studios and galleries in the area as well.

Darlinghurst also has the Australian Museum, Australia’s first museum and still an excellent one.

If you walk down towards the water you’ll come to Woolloomooloo, a gentrified ex-naval area now home to some of Sydney’s best modern restaurants and some pretty cool bars and hotels. To the east of Darlinghurst is Paddington, which is where you’ll find some of Sydney’s best boutiques and cafes - and a great weekend market, and to the west is leafy Surrey Hills, which also offers plenty of places to eat and drink, centred around Crown Street.
