3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was recommended by my sister to book this hotel for it's convenience to get to places like paddy market, market city, world square, chinatown, darling habour, central train station, etc. The room was just okay to accommodate 2 ppl for 5 nights. As the shops usually closes around 6-7pm, we were usually back at the hotel around that hour. However,... More

Hotel itself is very tired however the room was clean. Main issue was what sounded like a very noisy air con unit (not from ours). This was queried with staff and we were told this was outside noise (though it was clearly coming from a room labelled Plant Room next to our room) and we were told unable to move... More

The staff we spoke to at the hotel were friendly and knowledgeable. The air conditioning worked well, the TV was good and the linen was clean. However, the rooms look tired and in need of a good scrub. Corners of rooms, tile grout and air vents need a deep clean. Also, WiFi is paying- nowadays I think free Internet is... More

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times and will go back. We had room 405. Just a couple of things. Curtains on the small window were falling off the hook. I put them back on. The configuration of the room made it so hard to walk around the bed. A smaller table for the TV would be... More

I stayed three nights in a standard room and found the room very nice and clean and staff pleasant and helpful. A short coming was a bath that was 1/2 size but I was really happy it had a bath as most don't these days. The other issue was bad feedback on the telephone line so could not make or... More

This hotel is centrally located close to UTS, The entertainment centre, Paddys market & Darling Harbour. The rooms are clean and well appointed and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is parking next door at a reasonable price.

Rydges should be ashamed of themselves for pretending that this is a 3.5 star hotel. It is 1.5 star on a very good day. The shampoo and soap are obtained from containers on the wall. The rooms and hallways are tired and only barely clean. The promo shots must have been taken at least a decade ago (the big TV's... More

Well, they advertised that they had parking... no. Public parking nearby... expensive. My friend parked at the casino because it was cheaper, when we met for dinner. Holes in the windowsill (asbestos, much?), seal falling off window. One cockroach. Dust so far built up in skirting board crevices, I think it had petrified there. I don't mind old and broken...

We stayed at Capitol Square for 2 nights. We did not book this hotel. It was booked by our company for interstate employees to attend a work function. This hotel will not be booked again, based on all our employee feedback. The company paid $260 per double room per night - room only. This hotel / hostel is budget in... More

Our trip was booked very last minute however not really knowing what to expect we were pleasantly surprised. The location was great, I traveled with a friend and we are walkers, with the hotel being where it was located it was walking distance to Darling Harbor, The Quay, train station and of course the shopping. The staff were very friendly... More
