When we stay in Sydney (it's usually just a day trip for us) we stay at the Great Southern Hotel on George St Haymarket, right on the edge of Chinatown. Reasonable prices, not flash or large, but it's clean, has ensuite bathrooms, and we only sleep there anyway.
Buses to The Rocks, Circular Quay (Ferries), right outside the door. Very close to Darling Harbour.

Forgot to add that if you take the train from the airport to Central Station, the hotel is only a 200Mtr walk away.

What sort of food are you keen on Titch? If you give me/us a good idea we could gather up a swag of places to go that are tailored to your needs. If your keen on sampling many fine ales there's a few places around that are very good.

Harts that has been mentioned has a very good selection of beers and even though I've only had one feed there, it was very good.

The Local Taphouse on the corner of Flinders and South Dowling Sts Darlinghurst has and exceptional range of craft beers that constantly change week in week out.

Redoak beer cafe 201 Clarence St also has some stand out beers among its ranks and have eaten a tasting style plate there once, which was delicious.

The old Lowenbrau down the Rocks is an old favourite with imported mainly German beers and hearty German fare catering to many tastes

The Lord Nelson down the Rocks does about 6 or so of their own beers, good place to wander round. There's plenty of other old pubs in the Rocks that are great for having a beer and a feed at, some with magnificent views.

There's millions of other grouse restaurants around the place that serve great cheap right through to great expensive food. There's some shitholes too but we'll be sure to steer you clear of them.

What touristy type things were you thinking of doing? If you had specific things in mind we could help you get to and from there and maybe suggest some other things to see and do. If you were in Sydney many years ago you might want to have a look at some old haunts, or what are left of old haunts.

There's a million and one things to do around the place mate, and depending on your time, budget and everything else you could fill a week in Sydney no worries.

Hope this helps a bit and feel free to keep the questions coming

If you enjoy wine, I highly recommend either Love Tilly Devine (91Crown Ln, Darlinghurst) or the Wine Library (18 Oxford St, Woollahra)

Also worth a visit is 'A Touch of Class' - 377 Riley St, $175 per hour (or part thereof),
so the last 59.5 minutes is 'at leisure'.
