The average hotel room can now cost $1,300, up from $813 in April.

Guesthouses in Sydney have been charging guests for their rooms since at least 2015, but only since July has a full-time rental rate become the norm. “
And then, if you are staying for a longer period of time, you can expect to be staying with them for longer periods of time as well.”

How to make a booking: Booking a room online from a website such as Priceline, or booking from the phone can save you money.
“There’s no real set price yet, so you can go out and find the best rates you can,” Mr Miller said.
“But if you book from a phone and you’re looking for an Airbnb, I’d suggest going with the one that offers the most room for the price.”
“I’m not going to be able to book the room because I’m a long way away and I don’t know when they’ll be back.”
What to buy: Many hotels have upgraded their rooms to suites.
“The suites are great because they have more space for the guests, you get a private balcony and you can have a nice view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge,” Mr Smith said.
Mr Miller suggested using Airbnb to save money.
But not all hotels are like this, and some have taken the advice of their hotel management and offered rooms at discounted prices.
“Some hotels, particularly in Sydney, are charging a lot more than they should, and I think that’s because they’re trying to attract guests who might not be paying a lot for their accommodation,” Mr Brown said.
”You might find a hotel that charges $300 a night and that’s just not acceptable.
“All of the hotel operators we spoke to said they were not aware of any hotels charging more than the standard rate for the room.” “
We are working closely with hotels to try and make sure that their booking rates are competitive, but that we do not put guests in a position where they are charging more for a room than they are entitled to be charged,” a hotel spokesperson told the ABC.
“All of the hotel operators we spoke to said they were not aware of any hotels charging more than the standard rate for the room.”
A spokesman for the Sydney Hotel Association said it had been working with the industry to reduce the standard rates, but the association would not confirm how much it had done.
“As we continue to review the situation, we will update this website with any further information on our position,” the statement said.
How can you make a reservation?
Booking your room online is the best way to find out what your room rate is, but hotels have also been offering to book your room from a telephone.
The ABC’s Hotels Australia reader, Paul, wrote to the ABC to share tips on how to book a room.
What to know: If you are interested in finding out if a hotel has a higher rate than the average, you may want to book an online reservation, which you can find here.
If you need to book from the telephone, hotels will generally charge more than what you book.
“When you book a hotel room online, they’ll tell you how much the rate is and they’ll give you an estimate of the rate that you’re willing to pay,” Mr Thompson said.
What if you’re not willing to book directly from the hotel?
You can always book directly at their website.
“If they can’t give you the price, they can usually ask you to check it with them.
So, for example, if a booking comes through and they tell you that they’re not going up the rate, that’s OK, but if they tell me that the rate isn’t up to their standard rate, I’ll just ask them to contact me directly,” Mr Wilson said.
But if you don’t have an internet connection and are still trying to book, you should also be aware that hotel websites have a few tricks up their sleeve.
You can make a payment online, pay with cash or credit cards, or buy a voucher for a discounted rate.
“You can buy a hotel voucher, or you can book a guest book for a private room,” Mr Harris said.
