I agree with others that you can't go wrong staying here. All staff are extremely helpful and friendly, rooms are clean and comfortable, gym and heated pool are fabulous, and breakfast is good especially if you order from the menu. While the location is kinda strenuous up on a hill, it is very close to the harbour bridge and circular...

Stayed here previously in an admittedly superior room but having paid for an upgrade to an 'opera view' room, I wasn't impressed that I had to break my neck looking out of the window at a particular angle to glimpse the opera house, it certainly wasn't visible in the general view from the room. Felt like I got the worst...

I stayed at the Shangri-La for 4 nights in February. The hotel and the rooms are beautifully decorated. Some of the rooms have a stunning view, others don't have much of a view (I stayed in 2 different rooms). The room itself is clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel is superb. Shops, restaurants, the Opera House is all...

We got a great deal on Horizon Club room and cannot recommend it enough. Fantastic stay from start to late check-out. Unbelievable views and service. Horizon Club extras - afternoon tea, evening drinks and breakfast, all with that view made the stay extra special.

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.
