I stayed for work and asked if I could extend a night. The man at reception shouted at me. A workmate said he lost several hours sleep the night before dealing with the police over a domestic violence incident in the room next door. Reception quoted me a higher price than an internet booking. Not sure if the convenient location... More

I had the misfortune to be in Sydney on a very busy week and the only hotel I could get in the city centre was this one. The bed was poor, the room was tiny (you couldn't fit a chair between the bed and the desk), the wi-fi didn't work and it needed a good clean. I've told our travel... More

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
