Canberra: Sydney became the third most expensive city across the world to stay in on the New Year`s eve after Rio de Janeiro and New York, according to accommodation search site Trivago.

A hotel price comparison of world cities done by Trivago showed that visitors to Sydney are expected to spend $600 a night to stay up to 2014, which is 200 dollars more than last New Year night, reported Xinhua.
But there are costlier places too. Brazil`s Rio de Janeiro will see $791 a night and New York will see $700 a night, way more expensive than Sydney.

Except for Sydney, however, the spending on New Year`s accommodation has dropped this year in other major cities of Australia.

Melbourne accommodation price dropped 8 percent to $230, while that of Brisbane is down 17 percent to $189 and that at Adelaide is down 18 percent to only $158.
