City breaks are a popular choice for many Australians who want to enjoy the bustling activity, bright city lights and the vast array of options available for dining out and cultural experiences. If you're planning a weekend in a capital city, then securing the right city accommodation is probably top on your list of priorities. The sheer number of different accommodation options in a big city can be overwhelming but you can make the process far easier by following these three simple guidelines:
1. Choose the right location
The location of your accommodation is possibly the most important aspect you need to figure out before making your reservation. You should narrow this down before you even begin to look at what's available. Even a fantastic deal on a stunning five-star hotel may not be the best option if you need to spend hours travelling to get back and forth to your planned outings.
Before choosing your location, figure out where the bulk of your activities will be taking place. If they're spread out over the city, then look for a location that is most central to all of them. It's also a great idea to choose accommodation that's close to a major public transport route. This will save you a small fortune in taxi or Uber fares.
2. Book a room on the highest floor possible
One of the most appealing parts of a city break is the stunning lights that make up the nightscape of city environments. Making sure that the accommodation you book is on a high floor will mean you get the full experience of this illuminated vista from your room.
Being on a higher floor also means that you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city view without the accompanying noise. City street noise never stops and this can mean a disrupted sleep for you, particularly if you're used to slumbering in a quieter and more serene environment.
3. Choose accommodation with a car parking space
Cities are notorious for the scarcity off on street parking and the exorbitant rates charged for off street, secure parking. Whether you have your own car with you or a hire car, make sure that your accommodation has an allocated parking space included.
Some hotels or apartment complexes may charge a small extra fee for parking. If so, this fee is worth every penny and will be significantly less than other parking options or the hefty parking ticket that you may receive if you park in the wrong on street location.Share

Hello, my name is Frank and this is my blog. Today, I would like to speak with you about a topic which I hold very close to my heart. That topic is travel. For a long time, I avoided any form of travel. I would frequently have panic attacks which made flying difficult and just the idea of being far away from home could make me nervous. All of that changed when I signed up for a trip which would take me around Australia. It was great and I suddenly realised that by facing my fear, I could overcome my problems. I have since travelled around the world and I have learnt lots of cool things.
