about room book online

by dachel

ppl, for online hotel booking, it normally counts kid as a personal.

If the small kid will share the queen bed, do we need to declare when booking the room online ? can we just book for 2 adults ? it is cheaper

Re: about room book online

Hotels normally charge extra for an extra child bed if you need one. I would say that you tell them you are two adults and one small child but that you do not require an extra bed for the child. That will avoid any confusion when you check in.

online booking will listed the max guest to 2. does it mean that i cannot book those room? normally room for 3 guests is more expensive. i want to book those room with max 2 guests but my concern is that they charge me for extra during check in. shall i try ?

Dear sir,

I simply had to answer your question.I am hostel owner and would be mad if you do not declare real situation. Even more I would charge you more than for one person if you try to smuggle a not declared person and will call police as well.
So please take the advise of the first replier and ask double bedroom for 3 persons. I am sure that the hotel stuff will except that.
Usually on the on-line booking there is a line where you declare a kid.

Good luck with that


Re: about room book online

tks for your advise. that's why i need to find out about how it is in aussie cos in some countries it is fine to book for two persons and kid can share bed with parent without charge. In certain website to book for accomadation in Assie, it seems classified kid as an adult.

If a small child requires a folding bed (or sofa-bed) in most hotels, they usually only charge a fraction of the cost. It should not be more thsn A$20-25, which is not much anyway.
I do not believe that they would charge extra for a very small toddler or baby.
You could always send the hotel or motel or whatever an email, and explain your position anyway.

Totally agree with all above replies.
Contact the hotel you're booking with, tell them you've got a small kid, and ask them what they can do. They'll tell you what to do. Less worry in the long run.

tks for all of you. have book the room for 3 of us.

Explore all the little bays...

by Gnome

Explore all the little bays and beaches around Sydney Harbour and the coast. Although you could probably spend half a lifetime doing it, you can start at Fairy Bower (Manly) or Lady Neilson Park (Rose Bay) - or for a day trip, get on any number of buses that go to the Northern Beaches. There is nothing quite like lazing under a big eucalypt tree on the shores of the Harbour sipping wine or soaking up a good book!!! Be liberal with your sunscreen!. Check them out on: The Domain concerts in summer time. Unbelievable atmosphere. I am always amazed by the fruit bats that are flying overhead as the symphony, opera or jazz concert is in full swing. Maybe the bats like it as well. And for some reason, nature always likes to threaten and dazzle the masses with awesome displays of lightning on the very night that the concerts are on!

Take the ferry around Sydney...

by Ramonq

Take the ferry around Sydney Harbour. Sydney is one of the most aquatic cities in the world, so dive into it! The coathanger aka the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It's such an impressive bridge that every New Year's eve, it serves as a backdrop for magnificent fireworks.

Macquarie Square, amazing, your grace

by iandsmith

On September 23, 1786 John Newton – the man who penned Amazing Grace – approached Rev Richard Johnson with a vision for Johnson to be the chaplain and missionary on the first fleet of convicts being sent to Botany Bay in the uncolonised land of Australia.
Australian modern history was being written when Johnson accepted this challenge put to him by Newton.
Both of the first chaplains to the settlement, Rev Richard Johnson who arrived on the First Fleet and Rev Samuel Marsden who arrived on the Second Fleet, were convinced God had given them Australia as a base for evangelism in this country and throughout the South Pacific. Sort of has a familiar ring with a lot of what's going on in the world at the moment.
Richard Johnson built the first church at his own expense and by his own hands. It was a wattle and daub church he started building in 1793.
A marble obelisk stands by the spot near Macquarie Square. The first European ashore on the First Fleet, a seaman who jumped ashore to hold the boat for Captain Arthur Phillip, later used land he had been given for a church.
Owen Cavanough with Thomas Arndell built a church at Ebenezer that still stands to this day – Australia’s oldest church.
The headstones for Owen Cavanough and his wife are in the Ebenezer churchyard.
Rev John Dunmore Lang, the great Presbyterian Minister and member of the first Legislative Council, celebrated Holy Communion at Ebenezer, which has been held there ever since.
A female convict, Mary Parker Small, gave birth to the first European born in Australia on September 22nd, 1788. Baby Rebekah Small was probably conceived in that licentious night when the women convicts first landed a week after the men.
One of Macquarie Square's features is that, well, it's not square. At least if it was meant to be someone must have been drunk at the time when they drew it up!
No, but let that not detract from what it does have to offer like some pieces of yesteryear. I love the script on the little monument type thing in the second pic and, in the first, you can see the anchor of the Sirius and one of its cannon, brought back from Norfolk Island where the vessel perished on the rocks, mounted on stone in perpetuity.
The HMS Sirius, in case you didn't know, was the head ship of the First Fleet.
Macquarie Place, if you didn't know, is down near Circular Quay, just one block south.




Our friends and close relatives in Australia...make us want to visit them. Sydney appears to be a cosmopolitan city. There are people of many races, religons and cultures. However, my interest was in the Aboriginal people of Australia. These people were there well before their land was colonised. However, some areas and roads have Aboriginal names.
