It's not easy to park car in Sydney. We have to pay for parking fee even stay at a nice hotel like Shangri La hotel. They still charged AUD50 per night. But good thing was we got upgraded to stay 24fl executive room. Nice view to see both bridge and opera. We loved their big room with king size bed.... More

The Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney came recommended to me by a colleague and friend. Upon arrival, the check-in staff queried if we celebrating a special occasion - my birthday. We stayed in room 1113, which has superb panoramic views of the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, particularly at sunrise and sunset. The massage facilities are well fit-out, and the... More

Great location, exceptional staff and probably the best views of any property in Sydney. the Altitiude bar on the 36 th floor if the best place to see the sun set over the Harbour bridge. Check in went extremely smoothly and a complimentary birthday cake was delivered to our room.

As usual, shangri-la is good with their services. I got a room with a nice view. The hotel is located nearby the circular quay, so it's good to grab a drink over there. The room is nice but it looks a bit old. It's located uphill, so you may not want to walk back to the hotel multiple times.

Great location, it is a centre of Sydney, a walkable distance to many famous destinations, eg, botantic garden, opera , darling harbour etc. Surely to save your transport money and time ! For room review, book a harbour view room which is nice and the size of room is relatively big in comparing with the other hotels. Will definitely visit... More

The view was as awesome as the pictures on the internet - not always the case. Super helpful staff. Room has fast free wifi, is very spacious and spotlessly clean. To experience luxury with magnificent views of the entire harbor, you have to stay here at least once in your life - you will not forget it.

With an early start in the city planned for the following morning I decided to stay overnight at the Shangri-La (seems almost silly to be a Sydney-sider and staying in the city but if you're a commuter you'll know how welcoming it can be to not have to brave the Sydney traffic for a morning!). From the the welcoming staff,... More

My mother and I stayed at this hotel and absolutely loved it. The staff were helpful, friendly and very efficient. The restaurants offer superior quality food especially the Sky Lounge which offers fantastic views of the Sydney Harbour, Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. The hotel is located on a hill in the Rocks area and must walk a little... More

Although we only stayed for one night, it was a very pleasant experience. Our room was very clean and tastefully decorated with superb views of the harbour. It also had the most well stocked mini bar I have ever seen! The standard of service from the staff was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Our only negative was that... More

What a view from our room - we stayed in a darling harbour view room and had a stunning view for miles. Saw some great sunsets. The blu bar views are stunning also. Blu bar can be busy, but well worth it. Excellent personalised service from all the staff. The quality of the shampoo and conditioner was second to none.... More

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood 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.
