For a luxurious urban sanctuary which just oozes style and sophistication, look no further than The Langham.

Located in the historic ‘Rocks’ district, Sydney’s first European quarter, this hotel adheres to the old motto that small is beautiful, with just 98 immaculate guest rooms and suites; some with excellent harbour views.

Despite its modest size this regal property is packed with delights, such as the day spa, glamourous indoor pool and superb culinary offerings. Guests have the use of a tennis (a rarity in this part of town) and a famous pink London cab to whisk them around the city.

It’s a short stroll to Circular Quay, home to the Bridge and Opera House, and Sydney’s heart. The restaurants and bars of Darling Harbour and Barangaroo are a short hop the other direction.

Surrounding area

Although officially part of The Rocks, this section of Kent Street is residential and quiet. It’s not the most atmospheric of immediate surrounds, but the wider ‘Rocks’ area is thoroughly gentrified and packed with cafes, old school pubs and small boutiques. It’s unquestionably the nicest, most upscale part of the city centre, with sandstone buildings that glow in the sunshine.

Nearby Barangaroo, the old container port, has been transformed into a glittering business, food and entertainment hub, complete with waterside restaurants, bars, cafes, artisan markets and art spaces.
