7 Best Places for a Dirty Weekend in Sydney
Sydney is perhaps the most beautiful city in Australia. And it is affordable for a weekend away or a romantic stay. Or ir you aren’t into the whole romance thing – a dirty weekend away!. There is so much in Sydney to do and see, and it is really easy to get around (particularly if you are flying in – the train into the city is brilliant).
But if you are sick of the same old hotels, or are just wanting a hotel to stay in that has some personality and spunk, then check these out. Not only are they boutique and unique, they are all centrally located in the Sydney CBD and are priced the same as other more boring hotels in the area.

Located just across the road from the Pitt Street Mall, you are merely steps away from the best shopping in Sydney! I really love the QT in Sydney (the one on the Gold Coast is pretty dreamy as well!). As far as unique hotels go, this one is truly one of a kind! The rooms make you feel like you are in a warm cocoon of velvet. Every aspect of the rooms has been painstakingly thought out and tweaked to make it inviting. Perfect for a romantic getaway where you want to hide from the world.. and only come out when you choose to.
Best Bit of the QT Sydney:
The QT Gel Dream Beds! You haven’t slept until you have been on one of these amazing beds! Yes they are only on the upper floors and are a little bit more expensive, but they are a dream. The QT Sydney is also in the perfect location – walkable to all the best parts of old Sydney.
The QT can be a bit tricky to find for the first time as the hotel reception is up on the second floor. Look for the French girls out front who will direct you up there.
Why it is Great for a Dirty Weekend Away?
The QT is so decadent and rich – it is like being in your own world! There is no other hotel like it. Sure, it is pricey – but for the ultimate dirty weekend – it is perhaps one of the very best!
- Location: 89-113 Kent Street, Millers Point NSW
- Old School Luxury Hotel
The Langham is like stepping back into time, but with all the creature comforts of modern today. The Langham is located in The Rocks district – so is full of cobbled streets and beautiful old buildings. The hotel itself is classy and decadent without feeling intimidating. The rooms are fresh and bright, but still deliciously romantic for a dirty weekend!
Located in the heart of The Rocks district, wander the streets of the oldest part of Australia!
Even though The Langham is close to the harbour, it is still a bit of a hike to the shopping district. But still within walking distance. Probably aimed at more of an older demographic – but older people need dirty weekends too!
Why it is great for a dirty weekend?
Because the place feels so classy and special. You won’t feel quite so dirty!
- Location: 199 George Street, Sydney NSW 2000
The view of the harbour from your hotel room is just out of this world!
The rooms aren’t exactly spacious… so great for perhaps a night or two – but if you are staying longer than that it can be a little claustrophobic!
176 Cumberland Street, The Rocks NSW
The view from the Harbourside rooms is incredible. See the whole Sydney harbour, the bridge and the Opera House – so close you can nearly touch it.
If you are walking from the train station, it is an uphill hike to get there! Also, check-in is 3pm – most hotels are 2pm – that’s a bit of a pain in the arse!
6 Cowper Wharf Roadway, Woolloomooloo NSW
The rooms are just amazing. Vibrant, different, romantic! This is the only one of the seven hotels I actually haven’t stayed at yet – but am desperate to!
There are two Ovolo hotels in Sydney (don’t mix them up!) – this one is a bit of a walk into the Sydney CBD. Apart from that I really can’t fault it.
117 Macquarie Street, Sydney 2000
This is a hotel that really feels SWANKY! It would be perfect for a dirty weekend, anniversary or wedding night. Everything about the hotel screams THIS COST A LOT!
It does cost a lot.
11 Hickson Road, Walsh Bay, NSW
A luxury hotel that is DOG FRIENDLY!!! So you can take your best friend with you!
It is a bit of a walk into the inner CBD.
So if you are looking at booking a Sydney dirty weekend away – I highly recommend these hotels. As a person who travels a lot, hotel rooms seem to just blend together after awhile, but these hotels offer something a bit difference which makes them memorable.
