Birthday celebrations

Staf professional and friendly. Room facilities excellent. The main issue was the warmth of the room. Despite putting the air conditioning on the lowest 18.5 the room remained very hot and uncomfortable. This situation is further exasperated by having continental quilts without a sheet. The choice: had to sleep without any covering. Made for a very sleepless night, constantly waking in a sweat.

Great Location for The Rocks

This hotel is very nice. It is set up high from The Rocks area in Sydney. Be prepared for walking up and down the hill to get anywhere. 5 minute walk to Circular Quay. The only complaint was the lifts in the hotel are quite slow and usually full, especially in the morning. I stayed on the 19th floor so a number of times had to wait for another lift as the ones coming from above were full. Staff are pleasant. Didn't have the correct room requested on check in but was changed the following day.

This is a hotel you like to reture.

I had two nights stay with my husband for a leisure trip to Sydney. I am happy I have chosen to stay in a room with a view of Sydney opera house. It is worth of the money I spent on. The view is fantastic. You got everything you possibly required in the room. The staff are very friendly. The buffet dinner at Cafe mix has loads of sea food, cooked food and desserts. Generally, I have had great time in Sydeny parts of it because of the great hotel I stayed.

A comfortable stay

Went to the Florence + the Machine concert and stayed of night in the city. Had the best sleep ever at the Shangri-La Hotel. Friendly staff. Decided not to eat there though as food was out of my price range :)

Great views from the Bar

Booked an Opera House view room. It was just perfect a good size room very clean. The views from the Shangri-La Bar are not to be missed and the drink prices are reasonable.

Business trip

We had booked a deluxe darling harbour view but the room given to us did not have any view except facing the motorway toll. Furthermore we check in as per hotel advice which is 3pm. Very Disappointing. Will think twice in my next booking.

Fantastic honeymoon

The hotel met our expectation the moment we got to checkin, we got upgraded to a lovely Opera House view and spent our wedding night in the most cosiest bed.. Room service was delightful and we also got late checkout which was a bonus as we were both extremely exhausted.. Well done Shangri La :D
