“Great hotel and brilliant coffee shop”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

Overall the hotel is great, with great harbour view and right at the heart of the city! The most memorable was the breakfast at cafe-mix, the service was good and the food was very well made. The only set back for my stay was one of the staff in gold uniform (korean looking) was un-polite and very unhelpful but overall everything was fine, would go back there for other stay! Highly recommended!

This is a superb hotel right in the heart of CBD Sydney.

The bed was a high quality pillow-top with nice pillows and high-grade clean sheets and coverings. I had as good a sleep as I do at home. The bathroom had ample good-quality towels and was spotlessly clean and finished in marble with top quality fittings. The air conditioning works properly.

There were proper coat-hangers in the wardrobe and an iron that works as well as the one I have at home too.

I tried room service for dinner and the green chicken curry was very good for a hotel - definitely tasty. Room service prices for dinner were also quite reasonable at circa $30 for the curry.

There is free in-room wifi too which is a nice touch when others are still often charging or only have wired Internet.

Can't fault this hotel and I'll definitely stay here by preference in the future.

Paid $225 corporate rate for the night.

We stayed in a suite and got an adjoining room for our children. The view from the 20th floor was stunning, and it got even better from the Horizon Club on the 30th floor. Great gym, though the pool was smaller than its picture implied. We had dinner and lunch in the 1st floor cafe, and both meals were excellent, with some creative menu combinations.

Location, location, location !! Excelllent !! Very pleasant stay At Shangri-la !! Friendly staff. great breakfasts and super views. One 'small' problem...the Lifts.Try avoid staying there at the same time as a Head of State as all but 2 lifts were 'reserved' for the Chief & his Delegation. Highly recommended !!!

Room Tip: Pay a little more for Opera House view !
