Stayed here for three nights prior to a cruise. The views of Sydney harbour are priceless, and the location is 'walker friendly'. Staff were very helpful, and the selection of food for breakfast would suit any taste.

We stayed for two weeks in the Shangri-La in Sydney. Location was great. We arrived early in the morning and waited for more than 6 hours to be allocated to our room. We were told that guests were checking out late today. They did offer for a bottle of wine to be sent to our room which never arrived. Our...

Stayed here with my husband just after our wedding celebrations and loved every second of it, so decided to stay here again for our 1 year anniversary. On our second visit, the Shangri-La Sydney team surprised us with a box of delicious chocolates and champagne. We stayed in a king opera house view room.. It was quite large and very...

Superb hotel in an excellent location in the Rocks area of the CBD. The staff were fantastic in very respect, just couldn't fault them. Breakfast at Aus$45 per head seemed rather expensive so we ate at a local cafe instead. The gym and pool are good and it is worth visiting the bar on the top floor just for the...

We stayed here for the final two nights of our trip to Australia which had started about a month earlier in Perth - what a great way to finish. This was our third visit to Sydney and the hotel matched our previous experiences. It is set in a brilliant location and we had a corner suite with a great view...

A nice hotel just off the harbour which offered us views of both the Opera House and Bridge. As this was our first time in Sydney we spent most of the time out of the hotel so we didn't eat or drink there. The gym was good with plenty of machines and weights. No outdoor pool either. It was perched...

We booked a room in the Harbour view room and bought the emerald package which included a bottle of sparkling wine valet parking and buffet breakfast. I also arranged a hire car to take us to the theatre. When we returned they had the cleaners come in and turn down the beds. In the morning we had the best buffet...

excellent location. we stayed in a grand harbour room and would recommend this to everyone. we got married and had our honeymoon here 10 years ago and the service is still impeccable. the only critisism is the cocktails were nothing special this time around but the view made up for the lack of taste. the seafood buffet is highly recommended!

The reception area is small by Shangri La standards and unimpressive. The bedrooms and bathrooms are good. We are Golden Circle Members. Arriving on a hot day we immediately sought the Spa and pool. The pool was poor, the tile grout mouldy on the floor of the pool. The smell of chlorine was overwhelming. The outside patio area has absolutely...

Perfectly located for the main highlights.. the higher rooms allow excellent views of the Sydney highlights.. Staff are unflappable and handle the high numbers of reception traffic with professional ease.

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
