We stayed in the premier harbour view room and the view our the harbour opera house and bridge was world class! The room was a large and comfortable with a nice bench to look out the window and watch the world go by. We had the buffet breakfast and the food was amazing, so many choices!

This hotel is in a great location in Sydney. It's probably only a 15 min walk to the opera house and closer to get to the boat docks. Right by the rocks. rooms and all amenities are very nice. Only drawback is there is a hill to walk up on the way back.

You expect from a Shangri-la only the best anyway but it is always a very good experience to visit another one. The highlight in Sydney's Shangri-la is certainly the Altitude restaurant in the 36th floor with the breathtaking view of the harbor and the Opera. Another plus is the central location to the most famous sightseeing points in Sydney.

We stayed in the Shangri-La because an advertisement promised good views of Sydney's famous harbor. We were offered to choose among several although the staff suggested one in particular: a 9th floor corner room with a nearly 180-degree view of the harbor. As the staff observed and we personally verified, if we had been lower, other properties would have obscured...

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.
