We had a great long weekend stay here and loved the Shangi-La. Our room was excellent, very comfortable bed, great water pressure in the shower.....two important things to me! We had a corner room with a view out to the Opera House. Great location an easy walk to lots of restaurants and The Rocks street market.

The position and view are excellent, the rooms comfortable with every amenity, the beds magnificently comfortable. Hard to beat. But the food lets it down. I have separately reviewed Altitude. Room service was worse. The food all tasted fishy. Two other members of my staff had the very same issue so its not just me! I also tried Mix which... More

Amazing Hotel! Upon arrival to our suite the staff had organized a lovely piece of cake to be delivered as it was my birthday. Well appointed and large rooms. Beautiful view of the Opera House. Staff were very friendly and helpful! Will stay again.

I chose Shangri-la over any other hotel based on recommendations and reviews for my second stay in Sydney. When I entered my room, I think this was the most beautiful view of the Opera house I've ever seen. It made me really happy because this room was meant to be my home for nearly two weeks. I would love to... More

Launching right into the review, I was slightly offended when the doorman did not open my car door to greet me. He instead did it for my parents leaving me sitting in the car knocking over the seconds until he did anything. Miniscule inconvenience out of the way, I was pleased to see that the lobby is bright and chic.... More

The views of the harbour are priceless and will endear you to the hotel for life. Add to this the Horizon bar and restaurant at the top which would have to be one of... More

We loved this hotel!! My husband and I stayed here for two nights on a trip to Sydney for a wedding which also coincided with our 10th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival we had a chilled bottle of champagne and yummy chocolates waiting for us. The rooms were gorgeous with spectacular views and the most comfortable bed I think I have... More
