Stayed in a delux King here overlooking the harbour, stunning views and excellent housekeeping service. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and served up an awesome breakfast in the morning with plenty of variety. The hotel had a good pool and dos facility and the public areas were well kept. Couldn't really fault the place, first class location... More

2 nights here, great location. Extremely helpful and attentive staff. Magnificent views from restaurant and bar. Wonderful wine choices. I was a little disappointed with the evening meal choices, quite limiting and struggled to find something I would enjoy. Buffet breakfast was excellent, including "roll your own oats"!! My hair dryer did not work in the room and was replaced... More

Great location, impeccable facilities and wonderful staff. Cannot wait to return. Nothing seemed to be too hard and I felt like I was the most important guest they had even though they were clearly very busy. Thanks Shangri La, Sydney!

My husband and I were in the city last week to attend an evening with Billy Crystal at the Star so decided to return to our favourite hotel for two nights. We were offered an upgrade to a suite at an additional cost and decided to treat ourselves to the experience. Our room was on the 34th floor and the... More

Sydney is my home town so there may be a touch of bias but for its spectacular views over the harbour, comfortable rooms, Blu Horizon Bar and Altitude restaurant, the Shangri-La is the perfect spot. The location is close to the Rocks, especially favourable if you want to visit the markets on a Sunday. Nearby stations are Circular Quay (trains... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. Great view of Opera House from our window. Very comfortable room and bathroom. As I was scared of slipping in the bathroom, because I was recovering from a broken leg, three bathmats were put in there. We only ate breakfast in cafe Mix once as we thought it expensive so found a local cafe for... More

What a view from Au premier Grand Harbour view room, located at the 10th floor! You see from the Harbour bridge to the Opera House. You'll fell asleep and wake up watching the Opera House. Check-in and check-out were quick and friendly. The breakfast was rich, what you expect in a 5* hotel.

We took our daughter here for a night as a special treat. We could not fault the Grand Harbour View room - the view was spectacular.The room was very spacious as was the bathroom. We were let down by the fact that the roll-away bed was not in the room as it should have been. Check-in was smooth, as was... 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.
