Accomodation help please Urgent!

Hi

I am trying to book accomodation for someone else and they are looking for a central hotel for no more than $150 a night. Will be twin share and does not need to include breakfast.

Can anyone tell me if the Ibis Darling Harbour is in an okay location or is it miles away from anything. Also I have looked at Travelodge in Phillip Street, is this okay??

Any ideas woudl be a huge help please.

Thanks

Depending on what you plan on doing both are good locations.

Also try YHA across from Central Station.

I agree. Between the two, I'd also go the Travelodge.

Which sites are you using? Going by Wotif.com

Travelodge Phillip St is showing zero availability for the night of 25th January, same with Ibis and Travelodge Wynyard.

Sorry, I was looking with a $150 maximum filter, and the Saturday is a higher rate.

Averaging out the four nights, I'd take Travelodge Wynyard over their Phillip St property. Better location, better shopping, better proximity to basically everything.

www.booking.com is showing Wynyard Travelodge at $150 pn which is a good price (great location).

Hi

I have been looking on direct hotel sites. They are all showing availability. I really just want a reasonably decent Hotel in a good location that is close enough to walk to shops, cafes and sights.

Thanks again
