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

The hotel is located within walking distance of the harbor/pier/wharf (whatever you want to call it). The hotel itself was nice. Rooms are large with great decor. Love the bathroom shower (remember I'm a bathroom person). I could have stayed in that shower all day. The amenities provided in the room were exceptional (toothbrushes; L'Occitane soap, lotion, shampoo, shower gel).... More

I quite liked this hotel. The room was clean, nice and a good size. The view of the freeway not so exciting, but the health club, swimming pool and spa in the basement was great. The breakfast selection plentiful and the bar on the top floor was great with some terrific cocktails.

I stayed at the Shangri-la for one night in mid-August. The room was lovely, clean, spacious and with a great bathroom, and terrific views of the Opera House and Harbour. The room offered a turn-down service which came as a nice surprise, and I had dinner in the Café Mix restaurant (probably one of the best Lamb Racks I’ve ever... More

A centrally located hotel next to The Rocks. Walking distance to the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. A modern well decorated hotel. Friendly staff and good service. The top level bar and restaurant offers spectacular views over the City. Stayed for four nights after cruising French Polynesia.

Absolutely amazing as always. Stayed there for my birthday night at the end of Vivid. Perfect view of the Harbour bridge and opera house. Room perfect absolutely nothing to complain about. Close to the rocks. Was able to walk down and have dinner at Wolfies and watch the light shows along the way.

The Shangri-La Sydney has quickly become one of my favourite hotels. I'd visited many times before I first stayed over night, frequenting the Blu Bar on level 36. From the gorgeous foyer to the plush bed and unbeatable Sydney views, the wonderful service is just the cherry on top. The location is perfect, a lovely walk through The Rocks to... More

Unfortunately this time they accidentally over charged me for the room by $420.. good thing I checked my statement and contacted them, they were quick to apologise and refund the $420, which...

There is really nothing to complain about it was comfortable and the rooms were well proportioned. The service was fair, not good in the bar area. Don't think of visiting the Altitude bar after the conference crew have been in it looked like a bomb had hit it..we backed our smartish. Not a great location if you are of limited... 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.
