Room is not sound proof”
The room is not sound proof, me and my cousin stay awake till late and chatting but the next room complain , 5star hotel Should be sound proof
Excellent Location and Hotel!”
I went with my mom for three nights in July 2019 and it was spectacular. Upgraded to a room with a full view and we could see both the bridge and the opera house in one look from our window! Fully equipped with a mini fridge, safe, slippers and robes. Bathroom had toothbrush/toothpaste, shower cap, etc. Room service and breakfast were delicious! One downfall was the slow elevators, but they had signs saying they were working on upgrading them. Overall, wonderful stay!
Shangri -La Hotel”
I have stayed in few different five star hotels in Circular Quay. Shangri la is the most outstanding hotel from my experience. Very kind and helpful staff, delicious meal, clean room, everything was great a part from my dad got bug bites from the bed or gown. When I told this to lady at the reception, her reaction was not very impressed. She could deal with this more professionally. Not recomending to old couples, the hotel located on top of the hill. However, I would love to come back again in future. I loved bath frangrance, shame that Loccitane doesn’t sell it anymore.
We stayed the weekend to celebrate my husbands birthday. Check-in and check-out process super easier. Concierge ladies were lovely and very helpful. Modern hotel, very clean, excellent amenities. We got a free upgrade too which was the cherry on the cake. Would absolutely stay here again!
Impressive view with opera house, I really liked it but I still did not get my deposit. I stayed there on 14th of last month and it is one month now. They said it will take 2-4 weeks. Very slow. Other things were really good. The hotel and services and room was very nice.
Great location, great view, maintain well”
Great location. Especially the grand Harbour View. Hotel in room facilities maintained well, up to a high standard even for a relatively old building. Impressive as always for Shangri-La. will definitely recommend to friends visiting Sydney
Premier Grand Harbor View Room is Amazing!”
We had a 4 night stay here. Staff is superb! The room "Premier Grand Harbor View" we booked on the 17th floor have an breathtaking view! I'm very happy with my stay, and definitely will be back again!
Great location, average breakfast”
The hotel is just 5-10 minutes walk from the opera house. The room is clean, staffs are friendly. I was lucky to have an early check-in free of charge. There was a room on the fifth floor available, the reception informed that we would not be able to change to a higher room afterward which was fine for me, as most hotels would charge the early check-ins. As in early check-in I mean 9 AM kinda early! Very satisfied with this. During my stay, I also booked a tour to Blue mountains via Shangri-la, they picked us up right at the hotel. The only thing I was disappointed with was the breakfast. While I was booking the room, I realized that there was a big difference between the room that comes with and without breakfast. The difference was so big that I thought the breakfast should be extremely good. So I opted for it. Very disappointed as it is just a normal breakfast. It had the essentials, but nothing more than that. All in all I was satisfied with my stay.
There’s a cockroach.”
Good service though.
Great place to stay for an anniversary weekend ”
My wife and I stayed at the Shang-Ri La hotel on the weekend and we have a great time. All the staff were amazing and catered for every request we had. The hotel and our room in particular were very clean however I’m not sure what the deal with all the plastic mushrooms were? Made the hotel foyer look messy. The view over Sydney Harbour was incredible. Easy access to everything in The Rocks and Circular Quay. Highly recommend staying here.
Nice Hotel and staff, great views of Sydney from our room and the Lounge.”
We just had two night stay in the Sydney Shangri-La which is in a handy location to the historic Rocks area, Circular Quay and the Sydney international cruise terminal. The room had great views of Sydney as did the top floor lounge. The Sydney Shangri-La staff were very helpful and courteous as usual. Thanks for a good time.
The staff are the best here”
Literally, they are the best asset this place has. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They are polite, courteous and have the best attitude I've actually seen from hotel staff the world over. The hotel is also clean, spacious and well presented in an old style charm that suits Sydney well. Location is excellent, being only a stone's throw away from the Harbour Bridge and Opera House landmarks. The only thing, if I were to say so is that the roads in the surrounding areas are best avoided and either taxi or public transport and a short walk being your best options here. The condition of the roads is nothing short of atrocious, stupid one way streets that send you in circles, pot holes galore, light rail upgrade works nearby, and generally cramped traffic conditions make driving here a task. There's also a $58 per day valet parking charge to store your vehicle if you choose to. Best to park at an offsite location and get the train there. Otherwise, this is a magnificent place to stay.
Overall Good Experience”
The room we had had a decent view of the harbour and the Opera House. Rooms are clean, luxurious and large. Pretty new and well kept compared to other Shangri-las. Staff were very friendly and professional. A slight issue we had was we called for an extra blanket on our first night but ended up not getting it. I fell asleep without my 2nd blanket. They sent it to us when we asked again on our 2nd night. Location seemed central but due to the road directions and also the ongoing construction works, it was difficult to drive to. Its an uphill distance from the nearest transit station. Also, i celebrated my birthday there but never received any complimentary well wishes. The price to quality was good but the parking fees per night were very expensive.
Newly wed....very impressive and amazing place to stay in the city”
I booked this hotel for my daughter and her husband... after their wedding before their honey moon... they told me it was one of the best experience and very friendly staff and very grateful i choose shangri la hotel for them....
Room with amazing view of the bridge and opera house”
We had a room with a view of circular quay and the harbour bridge. Spectacular view of the vivid festival. Staff were friendly and very accommodating of our young children. Check-in was seamless and fast. Highly recommend staying here.
Footsteps from the Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Sydney Opera House”
Footsteps from the Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Sydney Opera House but we also got the view to our room as we got a harbour view room. Everything is at the doorstep since Ferries, trains and buses leave regularly from Circular Quay and will take you... anywhere.
Another nice stay and helpful staff”
Had another nice stay. I had an early flight and accidentally left a few items in the room. Didn’t realise till I got to my hotel in Melbourne. I called the hotel and the staff immediately located my items and shipped them to my hotel in Melbourne. Very efficient and helpful!
I really enjoyed my stay in Shangri-la Circular Quay Sydney. The View to the Harbour Bridge and Opera House is above all. The value for money is good, they also offered me Horizon lounge offer. The staffs are friendly and assisted me when I had lost item, they sent it to my next hotel without additional cost. 5 stars ratings for every aspects.
Great Hotel Medioce Staff Services”
Great Hotel. Scenery was beautiful from room of harbor , opera house. Just spectacular. Rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast was great. Only complain was check in staff was a bit rude. Never smiled. Ask me a lot of unnecessary questions. Besides the check in experience all was well
